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

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 Controller review

 

The most popular mobile VR headset has a controller to call its own

Comfortable, one-handed remote ; New motion controls are promising

Not a two-handed full controller ; Requires two AAA batteries

The Samsung Gear VR Controller finally brings a gamepad to the popular virtual reality headset, and it's better late than never. It includes all of the buttons that are mounted to the side of the headset, so you're no longer tapping your temple to move...

Samsung Gear VR Consumer Edition review: The stepping-stone to Oculus proper

 

Virtual reality, often known as VR, has a long and winding history. From the distant dream of Sega's VR, unveiled back in 1993, to the modern day it's-almost-here reality of Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR, it's South Korean giant Samsung...

Wire-free VR experience unlike its rivals, more affordable than earlier Gear VR models, new design benefits glasses wearers, easy to setup and use, fun experiences on offer

Tied to phone hardware, lower refresh and perceptible resolution than Oculus/competition, may cause nausea, still limited range of content/games

The first time we slipped the Gear VR on and looked around a whole virtual world, head turning to take in what was to the side and behind, part of us was impressed with the sheer spectacle. It's quite amazing.

Samsung Gear VR review: a must have for Galaxy phone owners

 

High quality, Oculus Rift-powered VR for £80 or $99 has got to be a deal, right?

Cheap ; Decent variety of content ; Solid VR experience all round

Samsung only ; Graphics lack a certain polish ; Bit of a battery burner
