Good price 50% half price. Been wanting one of these for a while. And you can pick it up. Good find😊

Great price. Its a BoboVR Z4, the best you can get of this type of headset.

Reviews seem good. How effective would this work with an iPhone 7 Plus? Its not got the QHD screens of the top Android phone so I wonder if that would be a problem.

It will work but the crap resolution of iPhone screens makes the experience somewhat poor. It will be fine as a curiosity but I wouldnt use one as actual entertainment. Even 1080p phones look somewhat lacking.
With a good Quad HD screen such as from LG or Samsung these are really great fun. For £10 this is an absolute bargain.

There are some good VR games available (not quite Gear VR standard but still fun) but i honestly found myself more interested, entertained and actually "wowed" by the more factual stuff like 360 virtual tours of museums, Egyptian pyramids, cathedrals, coral reefs etc.

maybe I'm just getting old.

No no no you're not getting old AND your response is very appreciated
PSVR is running at a lower resolution and getting rave reviews. I think there is hope.

Picked up the headsets today and I'd like to inform you that yes it is a BoboVR4...kind of.
It just lacks the okay/screen touch button, but for a tenner I can't complain.
If I can find a picture of the button then I can 3d-print one and mod the headset.

I picked one of these up today, but without the OK button I can't get it to emulate a Google cardboard. Am I missing something or is this a drawback to this headset?

Literally typed what the problem was into google and just watched a video of How-To Add touch screen trigger to your VR headset in less than 1 minutes and almost free! Hopefully the headset can be modded for next to pennies.
