Samsung Gear VR review


Bringing proper virtual reality to the Samsung phone-owning masses

Gorgeous, immersive games ; Mostly comfortable fit ; Cheap... if you have the phone

Limited phone compatibility ; No positional tracking ; Rare performance/heat issues

It has limitations, but the Gear VR really delivers on the promise and power of virtual reality.

Samsung Gear VR review: Amazing but it will be a one-time watch for most - The Times of India


Samsung Gear VR costs Rs 8,200 and is compatible only with flagship Samsung Galaxy smartphones. Here is the review.

*India’s only proper VR headset ; *Wireless without any battery charging hassles ; *Comfortable to use even with glasses

For those who do not intend to buy a Samsung flagship, the good old Google Cardboard (and its rip-offs) is still the best bet.

Samsung Gear VR Headset Review


Samsung Galaxy VR is the only headset of its kind currently selling in Indian market. For a new technology, it's affordable, reliable and superb quality, but

• Comfortable, user friendly controls ; • Respectable graphics for a portable system ; • Responsive touchpad controller

• Locked to flagship Galaxy device ; • Lacks enough content and apps

Samsung Galaxy VR is the only headset of its kind that currently sells in the Indian market. For a new technology, it’s affordable, reliable and superb quality; hence a recommended accessory for flagship Galaxy owners. I even feel that Samsung should...

Samsung Gear VR Review


The catch, of course, is that you need a Gear VR to experience all these different apps. And that in turn means that you also need a top-end Samsung phone. That's a major limiting experience with the Gear VR and other high-end mobile headsets such as the

Samsung Gear VR review (2015): A no-brainer if you own a Samsung phone


Samsung's Gear VR is the company's first virtual reality headset designed for everyday consumers. For just $99 and a compatible Samsung phone, you can dive into an incredible experience that'll have you watching 360-degree movies and playing super...

Affordable ; Comfortable to wear ; Easy setup ; Wide variety of content

Only compatible with a handful of Samsung phones ; Drains your phone battery ; Not as robust as upcoming PC and console-based VR headsets

If Google Cardboard gives a taste of virtual reality, Samsung's Gear VR offers up a whole feast. With just the addition of a smartphone, you can get a truly immersive VR headset that lets you travel distant lands, watch movies and shoot up spaceships...

Samsung Gear VR review


Affordable yet astounding, Samsung's new Gear VR opens immersive virtual-reality worlds.

Only $100 ; Best mobile VR hardware ; Works with all four major Samsung phones ; Fantastic games and apps

Some light bleeds through the edges ; Only available on four Samsung phones

If you own a Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge Plus, or Note 5, we highly recommend the Gear VR at its new $100 price. Thanks to a fantastic collaboration between Samsung and Oculus, the Gear VR is the best mobile VR experience on planet Earth.

Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition


With the full consumer launch of the big boys in VR on the imminent horizon, it's depressing how many mobile virtual reality headsets there are on the market right now. And all of them are damaging what is still very much a fledgling product market.

Completely wireless design ; Powered by Oculus VR ; Great head tracking ; Improved content range

Only compatible with Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge ; Content still limited ; Full game content expensive

For anyone interested in purchasing a VR headset who's already a Samsung flagship owner, the Gear VR is a no-brainer. It's easy to use and the content selection has grown. It still has some growing to do, but there's plenty of appeal here.

Looking into the future: Samsung Gear VR review


Oculus VR and Samsung's Gear VR virtual reality headset is an enticing first taste of the potential future of a new medium. It's light, comfortable and -- most importantly -- accessible. Gear VR is the most usablevirtual reality headset we've ever...

Incredibly accessible ; Light, comfortable, attractive ; Extremely impressive visuals

Limited functionality ; Extremely limited software library ; Requires a Note 4, making it very expensive

Gear VR is a device full of potential. It works! The screen resolution is almost good enough that you don't constantly think about the headset you're wearing! It's light and easy to keep on for long periods! It's not $10,000! The battery life is pretty...
