Google Daydream View VR review: The headset for Google Pixel users

 

Google's Daydream View VR headset is now available in India. The Daydream View VR headset was launched along with the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones in October last year. The Daydream View VR headset is priced at Rs 6,999 and available on Flipkart.

My overall experience with the Daydream View VR was on the fun side. But virtual reality is still the kind of fun that leaves me with a dull headache, after using it for under 15 minutes. Oh, and those 15 minutes felt like half an hour. When it comes...

Google Daydream View review

 

A sexier, streamlined alternative to Cardboard with plenty of potential

Clever controller opens up more VR possibilities ; Should eventually support loads of phones ; The price is right

Headset lets in quite a bit of light

Google’s second stab at VR has serious potential

Google Daydream View (2017)

 

Google Daydream View 2 (2017) review: Price, release date and compatible phones for Google second edition virtual reality headset

Comfortable and compact ; Google's wealth of content ; Works with more phones now

Slightly fuzzy picture ; Pricier than before ; Not much of a jump forward

A comfortable, easy-to-use headset – but not a huge leap forward.

Google Daydream View (2017) review

 

Google 2017 Daydream View headset greatly improves upon last year's model with better build quality, less light-leaking, and a snugger fit. It's still one of the comfiest VR headsets around.

Almost no light leak, wider field of view ; Comfortable design, snug fit ; Simple software and set up ; Improved Daydream catalog

No iOS support ; Still needs more fun content

Google’s latest Daydream View headset greatly improves upon last year’s model with better build quality, less light-leaking, and a snugger fit. It’s still one of the comfiest VR headsets available, and the Daydream platform has grown considerably.

Google Daydream View review: mobile VR done mostly right

 

Nearly a year ago, I wrote about a then-new product called the Samsung Gear VR — a mobile phone-powered headset that promised cheap, mainstream virtual reality, but it delivered something I wasn't...

Clever, ergonomic hardware design ; Versatile, convenient controller ; Lots of potential for Android integration

Only compatible with Google Pixel at launch ; Finding the best fit takes time ; Still waiting for killer apps

Google Daydream View review

 

Cardboard is cheap. Gear VR only works with Samsung phones. The pricy Oculus Rift ( $399.00 at Amazon.com ) and HTC Vive ( $599.00 at Amazon.com ) require an expensive gaming PC and loads of setup, and the PlayStation VR ( $224.99 at Amazon.com ) needs...

Affordable, portable and easy to set up. The bundled motion controller is convenient and easy to use. Exclusive YouTube, Google Street View and Google Photos feel like potential killer apps.

It only works with Google Pixel and Moto Z for now (more on the way). The headset is front-heavy and frequently needs adjusting. There's limited app selection at launch and you can't walk around or grab things in VR.

The Daydream View is the simplest, most affordable way to turn a phone into an immersive VR headset.

Google Daydream View

 

Google's Daydream View VR headset is a comfortable gateway to virtual worlds—there just aren't many to visit yet.

More comfortable than other mobile VR headsets. Included remote control is easy to use. Affordable.

Very little hardware and software support so far.

Daydream is the best mobile-phone VR platform so far. But so far, it's a nearly empty platform. It's hard to enjoy a party when nobody else is dancing. And no mobile VR platform holds a candle to PC-based systems like the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, or...

Google Daydream View (2017) review: New looks and lenses, but no new tricks

 

Want to try VR but don't want to break the bank? Look no further. With the new Daydream View, you get a comfortable fit, sleek-looking headset, and

Affordable and easy-to-use access point into VR (if you have the right phone) ; Comfortable fit beyond any competitor ; Decent array of titles (affordable if not free) ; Noticeable upgrades over original (top strap ; Fresnel lenses ; And larger field...

Only 12 Android phones compatible for time being ; Lack of iOS support ; Needs more experiences to truly thrive ; Will soon compete with wireless ; Fully tracked headsets

So, should you buy it?

Google Daydream View review: Google’s Pixel-perfect Gear VR rival gets a 2017 facelift

 

Google's Daydream View is the perfect accessory for your new Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL, and it's seen a 2017 update

Soft, comfy design

Not particularly secure on your face ; Right now there's a severe lack of 'must-have' apps

In its defence, though, the Daydream VR platform is in its infancy right now, and in a couple of months its app support will be vastly superior to what's on offer right now, so watch this space: in 2017, Daydream VR could well become the mobile headset...
