Good Samsung Gear VR bluetooth controller?

Can anyone recommend a good responsive bluetooth controller for the Gear VR? I see a lot of good reviews for the 'SteelSeries Stratus XL', but I don't really want to spend almost £50, somewhere up to the £20/30 mark.. thanks

Good reviews, I've not actually used it yet but it's a decent size and feels solid

​no worries

I just got one of the razer Serval controllers. picked it up new from eBay for £30 delivered.
I'm used to a ps4 controller so it's a little strange at the moment. but working with mame on pc. it's designed for Android so should work well with my s7 vr gear and hopefully retro pi

​Yeah I was reading up on that, but I read you need to update the controller to work with the gear either by a xbox one or windows 10, which I don't have

​I have an S7 so intend to use it for that also.. it was just that unboxing and trying via USB cable on mame was quicker than getting my vr headset out etc.

​Thanks, when you do try it with your VR headset get back to me and let me know how you get on, you read reviews on amazon for most of the controllers some say yeah they brill byu then you read others that say they are rubbish, ... A good honest opinion from someone who's tried it off here is good enough for me..

​Where did you get it for £32, it's £51 on amazon,

I got a beboncool pad a while ago from amazon on a lightening deal. I actually used it for the first time today.

Pretty awesome.....no control issues and linked up to my edge / vr with no issue.....I got mine for 18.99.......played End Space.

Motion sickness got to me......this must have been due to increased movement when compared to just using the gear vr touch pad.....also played the Adventure Time, which again was great.....hope this feedback helps

Got this one by the way :0) amazon.co.uk/gp/…1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1483321389&sr=8-4π=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=BEBONCOOL&dpPl=1&dpID=51t2dYuhGnL&ref=plSrch

​Thanks for the link, you got a good deal, it's £25 now, but I will order this, looks nice to.. I was thinking of buying end space, got good reviews. This is a great site for deals and good honest advice

Glad you posted this my gear arrived the other day and I also need a suitable controller this looks good!

Yeah, my lads got me a S7 Edge for xmas so I ordered the new version Gear VR from amazon, should arrive this week, I really wanted the SteelSeries Stratus xl, but £50 for a android controller which I wouldn't use all to often is a bit steep.. All the beboncool controllers seem to have good reviews with the gear VR

Its great much better than i thought, i was going to get a vr headset for my ps4 but didnt want to waste money until i get over motion sickness, so hopefully this will ease myself in, going to order a controller later tonight

Oh god!!!....Motion sickness on End Space really got to me LOL!!!!....I was feeling the effects for a few hours......there go my Top Gun fantasies!!!!

Wish they would bring out a good driving game and world war 2 fighter sim....and how about a Star Wars fighter sim.....something like star fox.....on the rails......May be they should transfer Star Horizon (See Play Store) to the VR experience or even Sky Baron......

Hope everyone got some decent cheap games during Oculus stores winter sale........there were some great reductions

did your controller arrive? mines came but it looks like its been used all scratched and in no bag or anything

Mine was brand new and in perfect condition.....The seller was BEBONCOOL-Direct and fulfilled by Amazon.....if it's bad send it back....speak to Amazon....demand / ask nicely that they send you a new one out before they get the old one back.....bear in mind that if you don't send the damaged on back you will get charged for both......

​ ​​No, still waiting... you need to get in touch with Amazon to get a new one sent out, I hope mine don't come in that condition. They may just send one out and not bother wanting you to return the one you got, they did that with me a few months ago, a electric shaver developed a minor fault and they just told me to dispose of it and they sent me a new one out, cost £60 as well..

ill get in touch with them, was your controller in a plastic wrap or anything?

​hi, how are you getting on with your Gear VR and controller? I picked up a SteelSeries Stratus XL controller from CEX for £15, works perfect.. just waiting for another sale now on Occulus store, .. The avengers trailer looks good, so does the jurassic park clip. haven't been wowed by any of the free games yet though

Hi,

Yes mine arrived to and it is great, I have not found many games either that take my fancy at the moment, hopefully it wont be to long till another sale!
