Seems like a good price, I personally wouldn't buy one, J think they are a niche product currently, but maybe in a few year when these get a bit more immersive and real life
Will it support s8

Doesn't say it does in the description.

Sadly no, it's the 2017 black model with the Usb C adapter we need.

I'd love a cheap S8 gear vr model. Bought a few games on the s6 edge that id like to try on the infinite display.

I think this model only supports up to the s7 edge.
Damn, missed out again
Is this just the headset?

Isn't there one which has a handheld controller that's meant to be much better??
I got the last one 10 mins ago. Got lucky, probably a failed transaction.
Might be worth keeping an eye on the link though
Just bought into this world.. My research suggests this is the 2015 model. I bought the 2016 model. The latest obviously is the 2017!

Theye are all the same size and apparently the s8 physically does fit.. Just (I have the s7)...the issue is the USB port. The 2015 and 2016 both come with Micro USB only. 2017 comes with Micro And Type C... I'm not sure on the 2015, but the USB C adapter is available as an aftermarket unit from ebay (I bought one for under a tenner delivered this weekend as a future proof)... This comes in the box with 2017 as well as the motion controller. This is also available aftermarket and is next on my list... From my understanding once the USB C adapter and the motion controller are had, the 2016 and 2017 modelsc are identical. There are subtle differences in the shape, colour, controls and cushions on the 2015 however.

Hope that helps.

The S8 has a usb C out to micro usb in adapter in the box. I had tried that with the original white gear vr. Sadly, the phone didn't react to the unit at all.

The latest gear vr (2017) has interchangable adapters that clip into the headset.

This is true of the 2016 model, you just have to buy that adapter separately. I have it, but don't have a Type C device to try it on! I thought I'd get it 'in case'. Kinda the motto for this site hehe.
I have the 2016 model (which comes with the usb c and micro usb adaptors). The box said works with s7 edge but no mention of s8. I got a usb c adaptor ( courtesy of a top HotUKDeals member) as the one supplied isn't set deep enough for the s8. I can confirm the s8 works with it. Haven't tried the s8+ with it.. but that should fit as well.

Judging by the posts it seems the controller if purchased separately should work with the 2016 model. Is this right and if so where is the cheapest to get it?
Anyone suggest any good content to use with the gear vr?

I had sold off my gear vr as I couldn't get it to work with an S8.

The section in my photo above doesn't come off with the original gear vr (s6/edge and note series).

You able to link me to the adapter you had purchased?

Also I maybe mistaking my unit. It was the original white one. The first retail gear vr they released (after the note 4 only model).
Could it be 2015?
