    Dead On Arrival

    Posted

    I purchased the controller at my local Best Buy store. I did not try to use it for quite a while, but when I put new batteries in it for the first time it was dead. I tried other new batteries but nothing would bring it to life. Since I had purchased it a few weeks earlier I could not return it to the store I had purchased it from. I found the construction of the item to be thin and kind of flimsy for a controller. I did not purchase another one to give it another try, instead I just tossed it in the garbage. Maybe next time I buy something I will check it out sooner, but it was not my fault the product was defective out of the box. Based on my experience and the number of poor ratings, I would recommend prospective buyers stay away from this product.

    Junk. Complete junk.

    First impression: cheap, like a Happy Meal toy but not built as well. Thin plastic, very light. After reading the instructions (and if you wear reading glasses you'd best whip out your strongest pair because the print is infinitesimal), I managed to get the bluetooth to pair and the unit would do only 1 of 2 things: 1. exit from the app I was in, or 2. adjust the volume. When, after fiddling around with different button combos, I finally did get it to do something marginally useful (like move to different apps to try to open them) it moved annoyingly slow, like several seconds to move kinda slow, it still wouldn't allow me to open any programs or begin to approach anything even resembling usefulness. It would be overpriced at a nickle. Utterly useless. TL:DR Cheap, slow, useless. It only gets one star because I cannot give less.

    Playing music on a smart phone...

    It works with playing music on a smart phone, but it won't allow you to jump forward or backwards in the video you're watching (Youtube), and it won't allow you to calibrate the video to play in the direction that you're turned either. It's especially annoying when the video is not a true 360 degree video, because you can end up looking up, down, or turning around in a particular direction just to watch the video. The issues that I just complained about, are the very reasons why I bought this device to begin with. So, if it doesn't really help me with anything, then its just useless. I mean yeah, it plays music through my phone pretty well, but that's why I bought my 'LG Tone'.

    Did someone switch these?

    Upon opening the box, I noticed that the controller didn't look like the picture. Maybe someone switched controllers before returning it? It's missing the android/ios switch; it's missing all the labels; and the bluetooth doesn't come up as Utopia, it comes up as generic "VR Controller". It took an hour for it to pair the first time, and then it didn't do squat. I couldn't even get it to turn my volume up or down. I will be returning this tomorrow. Hopefully, they tell me this was an error and not the actual product.

    Great for simple games

    I bought this so my son can play vrcraft on his phone. Configuration was simple enough but you need to set the controller how you would like to hold it first (1 or 2 hands). It also worked using my Samsung gear vr. It drains quite a bit of battery though. Overall, it's a simple controller for anyone who needs to play simple games on vr. Comes with a small phone stand and price is cheap too!

    Lip Sync issues

    One would think that with lip sync issues being an issue for 10 plus years that Sony would have been able to determine which was a video feed and which was a sound feed and sync the two. This is not the case and is a pain to configure and even after it is configured it is still not perfect. The picture quality is very nice but the speakers could use some work and given most use external speakers an output to a receiver for the apps on the television would be nice.

    I bought this because it said compatible with the IPhone, but it is not. It can do a couple of features with the IPhone like turn the volume up and down and change tracks, but that's it, none of the actual game control that it advertises. I read through the instruction manual and it mentioned the controller is only functional with certain brand of games which I only found two game in the App store from that company. Needless to say, I returned the controller.

    Works Poorly When It Works At All

    This remote is really more of a pain than it is worth. Even pairing it with a recommended device doesn't give you all the versatility you would hope for. Many programs either don't recognize the buttons (other than one button that just acts as a select), or don't like this device. Don't know if there is a better one out there (other than the one that comes with the Google goggles) but I haven't found it and this sure isn't it!
