Oculus Go

 

The Oculus Go is a new headset offers a completely self contained VR experience. It's completely wireless, and it doesn't rely on a phone for its screen.

Decent screen resolution and refresh rate ; Tracking feels accurate ; Plenty of software available at launch ; Motion controller included as standard

Battery life could be better ; No killer app

There’s a very solid foundation here for a great VR experience, with good motion tracking and a decent screen, but the Oculus Go doesn’t quite have itself a killer app at launch.

Oculus Go hands-on review

 

The Oculus Go is clearly a step forward for accessible, mobile virtual reality.

Completely untethered ; Good value ; Fits comfortably ; Impressive app selection

Doesn’t support 6 degrees of freedom ; Battery is limited

Oculus Go review: this is the VR headset the world's been waiting for

 

The technology may not be cutting edge but with no wires, a low price and 1000+ games and apps already, Oculus Go is a winner

Decent quality VR on the cheap ; Everything you need in one box with no wires ; Attractive and comfortable headset with excellent built-in speakers ; Numerous fun games and experiences

Basic head tracking only ; Tunnel vision simulation via narrow FOV ; There's lots of stuff to play with but no apparent 'killer app' ; Controller is decidedly basic

The Oculus Go improves mobile VR, but there’s still a long way to go

 

It still has the basic shortcomings of phone-based VR.

Works without a phone or computer ; Low-key but solid hardware ; Reasonable price

Limited motion tracking ; App ecosystem is still iffy ; Bulky and silly-looking — like every VR headset

The Oculus Go makes improvements to the Gear VR, but its biggest achievement is just making mobile VR content easier to access. It’s a reasonably priced device that doesn’t require having a specific phone, doesn’t force you to clumsily lock that phone...

Oculus Go review: Affordable VR for the masses

 

The Oculus Go is a well-crafted virtual reality headset. It doesn't need a smartphone or gaming PC to run, so it's incredibly affordable and open to

Wireless VR is joyful ; Easy-to-use controller ; User-friendly interface and intuitive navigation ; Affordable pricepoint ; Brilliant design features ; Spatial sound without headphones ; Comfortable to wear

Some issues with motion-sickness ; Battery life is a bit short ; Straight edges of the screen are visible at times ; Some experiences are blocky and underwhelming ; HTC Vive and Oculus Rift are still that much better

The Oculus Go is a well-crafted virtual reality headset. It doesn't need a smartphone or gaming PC to run, so it's incredibly affordable and open to anyone and everyone. The fact it's wireless makes it a joy to use, while the focus on design comfort...

Oculus Go review

 

The virtual reality headset you've been waiting for? Probably not...

Comfortable in short doses ; Easy to setup ; Audio is well done

Lacking for content ; Screen is so-so

A well-made VR headset that’s once again lacking for content

Oculus Go review: Proof VR really is the future of entertainment

 

Untethered from a computer, without the shackles of a mobile phone, Oculus Go is VR at its most accessible

And this is where Oculus Go wins: price. Xiaomi is known for its affordable devices, and Oculus Go is a prime example. No other VR device comes close to Go for sheer affordability.

Oculus Go Review: The First Stand-Alone VR Headset Is a Winner

 

Think of Oculus Go as Rift 1.5. At its core, the Go is a stopgap measure as we wait for Oculus to launch Project Santa Cruz , which combines the cordless all-in-one goodness of the Go with the positional tracking and room-scale abilities of the Rift....

Completely wireless ; Sleek minimalist design ; Large library of apps and games ; Crisp details and vibrant colors with minimal motion blur

Some smartphone reliance ; Lacks room-tracking capability

The Oculus Go offers a cordless, all-in-one VR for under $200 with a robust catalog of apps and games.
