Doesn't work for Note 8. The S8 and S8+ will require a USB C attachment (available on eBay for around £10). Just make sure you get the right part number. The attachment they made for the Note 7 won't work for the S8+ as the connector's not set deep enough, but it will work for S8.

Does this work with the S8 or is it a different version?
Bought thanks!! Any good prices for the controller?
I am getting €5.83 post & packing fee also - still seems a good price

TH UK and DE AMazon sites only state up to S7- suggest you check Samsung site
Would it work for note 8? Tnx
This kit is fab if you have a Samsung phone I can't recommend enough
Wait, but does it work for the s8? It says it’s compatible with a usb c port, but does it actually work? The model number is r-3250

Yeah the S8+ does fit but you need the correct attachment as this only comes with the Micro USB attachment. I actually bought one of these and a controller for £38. Didn't fancy paying £120 for the Gear VR and Controller package.
has any1 got a link for the attachment dont want to ordert wrong thing
So how does this work ordering from Amazon Germany? I don't speak German so nothing makes sense on so.

Some of the comments on the Amazon listing say is does not work with the S8.
Does this come with the controller or you have to buy that separately?
Thank you, heat added 😊

Really expensive for a blndfold and clunkly looking to boot - ice cold !
I thought that until I received the gear vr free with my contract phone. amazing piece of kit. Did not expect much of it but wow. Everyone I have shown is really impressed.

If you buy this and have a S8, you need to buy the adaptor as pointed about above. The part number for this is "GH98-40350A".

Put that into Google / Ebay etc. and you should be able to find one. Do not buy non official ones. They're not worth the small saving.

edit - you need to add postage onto the price.

So it won't work with other Samsung phones than s8?? I hsve samsung on max 2017 model
Good Price!
Can anyone recommend any apps or anything worth checking out? I got one when Vodafone priced them at £0.00 by mistake and besides Keep Talking, I haven't found much use for it.
This is the older model (blue colour ) . The new 2017 version (grey colour) takes the note 8 and s8 and s8+ .The newer version is lighter in weight and a few more cosmetic changes and also comes with the hand controller . If it was me I would buy the new one off ebay (loads on there and fairly cheap ) so at least you've got the controller and any adapters that you need .

You definitely need the Allison's Diary series of games. There's 3. Think I paid £2.99 for all 3. They are so scary and I don't scare easily.
Oh and for anyone who does buy this Gear VR (which is the exact same model as the one released earlier this year for the S8/S8+, just with a different faceplate and without the adaptor) I do have a spare USB C adaptor which will work for the S8 and S8+ which I am willing to give away. Only trouble is I'm not back until January 1st so can't post it until the 2nd.
Is this usable with other Android phones?
These are only £30 in cex and comes with a two year warranty. Arguably easier to return should it go faulty too.
Anyone kindly care to comment if this compatible with a note 4? Thanks
I got the 2nd gen gear and I can confirm it works with the s8. It even came with the USB C connectors. That was from the Samsung site a few months ago.

Hi waynester21

I'd appreciate it if it hasn't already been claimed from you. If so let me know and I'll pm you my details. Will pay for postage.
So what is the best price for the version that fits the Note 8? I've had a look and ebay is £89.99 which is way too much for something I have no idea if any good or not.
Don't get this for the s8+ or note, since apparently it's a tight fit and puts quite a bit pressure on your phone (edges). Don' t risk it. Just wait for a discount on the newer gear model (with controller)

Clevercats might prefer to use Amazon.de's English language option!

This advice is wrong. I use it with my S8+ and have done for months. Perfect fit and no issues at all. Can't comment on the Note though

I managed to pick one up in Cex yesterday for £20, set it up last night, works really well, bit too well actually- motion sickness to the max
