Google Pros and cons: Our quick verdict on Google's Daydream View

 

The Daydream View is a solid first attempt at a mobile VR headset. It's comfortable and VR experiences look great. The only problem is there aren't many apps available for it yet.

Inexpensive ; Comfortable ; Motion controller makes VR immersive ; High-quality VR experiences

Not many apps yet ; More Daydream phones are coming, but aren’t here yet

Google Daydream View

 

Google Daydream View – and the Daydream platform it's built upon – is the natural successor to Google Cardboard.

A comfortable, easy-to-use headset – it's the next step in mobile VR.

Google Daydream View review

 

The Daydream View is the most comfortable choice for jumping into high-quality virtual reality content.

Daydream content is high-quality ; Remote has a long battery life and is ergonomic ; Daydream View is comfortable to wear ; Easy to use ; Affordable

Phone gets hot fast ; Light can leak into headset, for some users ; Only compatible with Pixel and Pixel XL right now

Daydream View is the best mobile virtual reality experience you can get right now, but of course, you’ll need a compatible phone. If you have a Pixel, or if your device becomes Daydream-ready via a software update, we believe the View is worth the $79....

Google Daydream review: The easiest-to-use VR headset yet is only $79

 

For $79, £69 or AU$119, the Daydream View turns the Google Pixel phone into a capable entry-level VR headset -- with caveats.

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.

Daydream View review: A mobile VR headset you'll actually want to wear

 

It's comfortable and capable. Google's Daydream View VR headset is a hit.

Comfortable ; Intuitive​ ; Good 'experiences'

Dust on lens ; Not as capable as 'proper' VR ; Questions about durability

Google Daydream View review: A Pixel-perfect VR experience?

 

Google has a mobile virtual reality platform, Daydream, which now has a headset to go with it. It's called Daydream View. One point to make is that Daydream View isn't going to be the only Daydream-compatible headset. Other manufacturers may release...

Affordable and easy-to-use access point into VR (if you have the right phone), comfortable fit beyond any competitor, decent array of day one titles (again, affordable if not free)

Only Google Pixel phones compatible for time being, can slip down due to lack of overhead strap, needs more titles to truly thrive

One point to make is that Daydream View isn't going to be the only Daydream-compatible headset. Other manufacturers may release their own versions based on Google's reference design in the coming months. They'll be similar to Daydream View in that...

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

Limited app and phone support at launch ; Headset lets in quite a bit of light

Even with limited app and phone support at launch, Google’s second stab at VR has serious potential

Google Daydream View review

 

Android VR becomes a reality, and it's super cheap

Very inexpensive VR headset ; Comes with a remote control ; Fabric design and flashy colors

Content is just getting started ; Light bleeding is a problem ; Phone runs hot, slows down

It's easy to get sucked into virtual reality with Google Daydream View. It's poised to work with more Android phones than any other VR platform, and it's very inexpensive. Of course, it needs more engaging content before it's worth purchasing.

Google Daydream View Review

 

Our Google Daydream View VR headset Review opens the door to a new era in Google's mobile VR game, starting with Pixel. The first phones that work with Daydream are the Google Pixel and the Google Pixel XL, both of which are available at the same...

Materials make device look and feel premium ; Controller feels light but legit, controls feel natural ; Works with Google's new Daydream VR software ; Big name brands onboard for future software ; Comfortable to wear and adjust on the fly

Price is too close to that of Gear VR, which is far more powerful ; Not a lot of games available at launch ; Does not come with protective cover for lenses ; Wirelessness means limited VR time

The Google Daydream View headset and controller are two parts of a future I’m glad to be a part of. With it, I’m able to see new environments and play games that defy traditional notions of what computers are able to be for their users. I’m also able...
