​Price has been around £80 for some time and only recently dropped to this price. Thought it was worth sharing since it didn't appear to be on here already. Sorry! :-(

​Nice. Have you used it much? Is it any good?
would really like one of these but my 7 and 4 year old would be all over it but wouldn't be able to use it. I would only use it for Netflix and maybe download the odd 3d movie as I have no 3d tvs in the house so a lot of money ending up being a gimmick really
I know this is probably a daft question but will this damage your eyesight focusing on something so close for any length of time ?

​it's not great for Netflix. just shows a big screen in a front room. but it is good for watching other videos such as the discovery channel clips.
I get a headache after using it for a while
I got one of these from Very, using a £30 off voucher for new customers, taking the price down to £49.99. Operation is a lot more slick that the Google Cardboard headset i had used before, phone slots in perfectly (using a Galaxy S6), and alot more comfortable than the Cardboard. However, when you insert the phone the first time you have to install the Oculus software, and are then limited to using their pre-installed apps or the apps in the Oculus store. With the Cardboard i was able to use ES File explorer to play files stored on my home network, but i can't find any way of doing this on the Gear VR, so i have to copy the files to phone. I also don't think the image quality is any better on the Gear VR than on Google cardboard. Just my tuppence worth!
I would highly recommend using a vpn to connect to the US occulus store and downloading samsung milkvr it has a more content on there. Also download sideload vr for even more apps including youtube.

Try Project Cars with a Rift/Vive and a wheel and you'll soon change your tune.

Competing for the best time with other family members in a 125cc kart with my DK2 and Logitech G920 is excillerating

Try CB Enabler in Play store to use Google Cardboard apps, works really well and the headset controls work with it

VR currently is good, although the 1440p resolution of the phone is nowhere near enough yet. You really need a minimum of 8K for decent VR, it will happen, however for what this can achieve with a phone, is staggering, really excellent experience in terms of the pure VR experience.

The Oculus store has two massive flaws, which prove to me that Oculus are bit clueless with User Interface design:

1. No video preview for any apps or games. None whatsoever. You have to come out of the GearVR go on your PC and try and find video demos of the games. This is terrible, almost unforgivable.
2. No search facility! That's right, you can't search the store or your library when wearing the GearVR, absolutely terrible again.

Oculus have a lot to learn and they need to learn quickly as competitors have better systems. There's no way I'd get an Oculus Rift as I know the Rift has the same issues in the user interface, plus the resolution is even lower on a PC.

Even in 2016 VR is not up to the job, it's incredibly immersive, it gives an experience like no other, but resolution is the huge flaw. I'm not joking when I say it really needs a minimum of 8K resolution, plus Oculus are total noobs with their software design.

Having given some quite serious criticism of the GearVR experience, it really is a no brainer to get the GearVR if you have a Galaxy S6 or S7 phone, there's some excellent experiences to be had with it.

Recommendations:

Games:

Tactera - It's only a demo, but the potential here is mind blowing
Herobound - N64 style 3D world, amazing, but you need a controller
Dreadhalls - Jesus, nightmarishly scary
Smash Hit - Wow! You must get this.

Videos:

Star Wars Landspeeder
Jurassic World
Sisters (not really a video but a 3D rendered room, scary even with the cartoon graphics)

Have you got any vision issues? I felt the same and I have 1 eye slightly weaker than the other and Im wondering if thats what is causing it. Although the head set I had was the freefly vr so maybe it was because I was using a basic model, not tried another headset since.

Apparently from what I overheard someone else say xvideos has a fantastic selection, and also for the full simulation lovense do accessories.
guys you make me laugh so much. I have these from carp carphone warehouse for free and it's waiting on my table to go for eBay. I'll never tell my husband you can watch porn on this otherwise he won't let me to sell it. he'll want to give it as a present to a 'friend'
Yes you can watch porn you can dl it from torrents or go to vr sites like kink. I leave the rest to you lol. As a device it's awesome. For those complaining about video if you got plex use the Web browser to log on to your plex no need to overload ur phone with video. Also I second the motion on using a free vpn from playstore to get milk vr. Hotspotshield works a treat. My wife loves it as I can watch TV in bed and she can sleep without flashing lights. For those concerned about ur eyesight. I've had no problems. But some of you might be worried about growing hair on ur hands

£59.99 @ EE in store currently
minus few controls+oculus it's not much different than this which is for - £14.18 + 6% cashback.

hotukdeals.com/dea…e=2

Read some of the reviews - one who bought both samsung VR and shinecon - tells shinecon has better lens! Anyways I do agree that samsung products has some Oomph factor but I do not see huge difference... the good thing is you do not need specific phone with Shinecon. But do agree samsung might have additional controls and features+Oculus added but is that worth £63 is the question. Anyhow voted hot since the price for this VR is best. Will I be going for it? No. I already got Shinecon and its awesome and does the job. (oh yea and its got a bluetooth controller as well free)

Don't worry, he already knows about the porn.
Used these at Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend. The Jaguar Wimbledon experience was insanely realistic. Whereas the Audi version, whilst you could make choices by looking at a point, was a bit boring. Get the content right and you'll love it!

"CB Enabler for Gear VR" allows you to enable/disable Oculus on the fly (no reboot required).
So you can disable Oculus, start any app, insert device into VR headset and your app remains running.

CB Enabler for Gear VR is cheap but not free.
Works perfectly on my S7.
