What does this do that the cheap generic VR headsets don't? Just noticed they don't list the S7 as a compatible model I presume there's a newer version that is.

Can they be used with non-samsung phones? i.e. honor 7?

Nope. Samsung exclusive

Heated as it's the cheapest price by far, just wish it wasn't limited to Samsung phones, really limiting their audience.

The page I'm looking at does list the S7 as compatible.

​Don't quote me, but I think there is a new 'updated' version due to the increased screen size of the S7. So I think the description is wrong.

It's the same one I have for my S7. Great price.

There is a newer, black version with a slightly higher FOV angle, and USB-c for the note 7 (plus a USB-c to micro USB adapter for S6/S7 range phones.

This is still decent. The difference between this and a cheap(er) plastic pair is a) the oculus storefront b) integrated head tracking sensors that are much better than the ones in your phone and touchpad. Basically, this one won't give you AS MUCH motion sickness (except in some of the more terrible games on oculus that have you tilting your head in various directions while the image shifts in the opposite direction)

anyone know which is the best vr headset for generic andriod phone?

I recently bought the Virtoba X5 BOBOVR VR Z4 for my Samsung S7 Edge.. Its pretty good, though I dont find myself using it very often.

Is it compatible with Note 3 and Note 4?

It is saying clearly all compatible models. https://s16.postimg.io/u12q8unk3/Screen_Shot_2016_09_19_at_12_13_53.png

This Samsung Galaxy stuff is smoking hot.

The GearVR has the same IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) as the Rift, which is accurate and sampled at a much higher rate than the one in a phone. The higher sample rate allows them to have more numbers to work with for a given time step in order to throw out and/or smooth out noisy values. I believe there is a compass in there as well to help with drift correction.

I use my S7 Edge with my GearVR and the experience can be surprisingly good. There's a cardboard enabler app for the GearVR so it's possible to compare. I've played around with some of the Carboard apps but get end up with nausea pretty quickly.

If you have a compatible Samsung Headset, a GearVR is a no-brainer. It's a great entry to VR.

I wouldn't want to buy a user headset though. Anyone's sweat, moisturiser or makeup could be in the foam cushioning.

Any idea where one can find games or apps that support this after?

And, any good one that you could recommend to start with?

Cheers!

Is Galaxy Note Edge compatible?

You can get all the compatible apps and experiences at the Oculus store oculus.com/exp…vr/ I was able to get 6 free games when I first signed up. Pretty decent ones. There are frequently game sales and a bunch of video apps with loads of 360 content.

There are free games like the Suicide Squad one which is short but free. youtube.com/wat…7mU

There's Minecraft VR and loads of space shooters and house of horror type games.

Yeah. I've got a bobovr 4 as well. It's not bad as far as generic phone holder VR stuff goes.

Although, I dunno where their FOV claims come from. They claim 120 degrees. The Vive is aroun 100/110 degrees. I have the bobovr and a Vive. It's not even a contest. The Vive FOV seems far better to me. With the bobovr I can pretty much see I'm looking at a box, that seldom happens with the Vive.

But anyway, a lot of whether it'll be any good is down to your phone. The faster the phone, the better it'll cope with VR style apps. On the rare occasion I use the bobovr, it's with a Nexus 6p and that copes OK.

anyone know what model number this one is? might buy for a go then trade in.

​it adds to the vr experience

hmmm very tempted to get one and modify it to work with my note 4

It can be used with pretty much any phone that fits in but it will work as a basic cardboard VR viewer, you wont have access to any of the gearVR functions.

where from? link?

Think we've established that this works for the s7 and s7 edge, but just to add, i have the s7 edge and it works perfectly on it, but can also confirm that it works fine on the normal s7.

It's a fun device to use, but not much currently on it. If anyone gets it, find a short video called 'Invasion', it's brilliant and very immersive not to mention free from the oculus store!

Nino786

Why not?



Because it has extra sensors built into it for improved head tracking that any generic google cardboard headset just does not have, and as far as I am aware have not been hacked for compatibility with other phones. Without this compatibility it will function like any other generic google cardboard based headset.

Where can you currently get the new black one for £60?

I've been keeping an eye on eBay where they go between £70-80.

Last I heard rrp was £100.

But Samsung UK store only sold the old one. This one.

All review sites say differences between old and new are negligible.

I need new for a note 7.

Don't get the Gear VR free with a SIM Free Note 7.

Only on contract.

Nino786

Why not?



Because Oculus go out of their way to lock it down so you have to buy games from their store.
