    Less expensive and much more comfortable than GearVR, also compatible with a lot more phones, in 2019 VR interest has dropped a bit, but if you want the best smartphone powered, mobile VR experience Daydream gives you value, comfort and a large library of titles. You can also run all Cardboard titles on Daydream giving it the overall largest library.

    This is my first VR product ever, and I had my expectations right knowing that it won't be fully immersive yet enough to hint what the future may be. Works great with Pixel XL 2 and finding video apps is easy if you want access to a ton of VR library.

    Headset is comfortable and works well with my Pixel 3XL. Game catalog appears limited and motion sickness is a real problem. Hopefully will get my sealegs soon.

    It works well with virtual reality games and movies. It is an interesting experience. However, I cannot get the VR Netflix app to work with this device.

    I bought the 2017 Google daydream view headset. This headset works well with my Samsung s7. This has a great FOV is 101. I have tried other headsets with a smaller FOV and the difference is very noticeable. The best part of this headset when compared to Samsung gear vr is how light this feels.

    you are better off buying the google cardboard, glad I didn't pay regular price for this. this it nothing special about it, other than the controller. you must have a google pixel or a phone that is compatible to download app, if not you just spent a lot of money on vr headset that you can get for 10. doesn't even come with a usb to charge the controller, if you paid that much, I would expect at least a usb charger. it's also not that comfortable, a lot of pressure on your face.

    Very comfortable. Questionable use case

    I bought this to be part of that 'VR' future we keep hearing about. Well, while this is rather neat and works well with my phone (Pixel 2) I am not sure the use case for it. Besides being 'neat' and watching a few VR Youtubes, it really isn't as useful as I thought. May have to break down and get some games for it.

    Mobile VR done right; just needs more games

    This 2017 Daydream View is the best mobile VR hardware. The headset looks like something you'd want to wear, and is extremely comfortable. You can also insert your phone with its case still attached (as long as it isn't super bulky), while the remote controller adds fun ways to interact. Compared to last year's model, the field of view isn'ticeably wider and the top strap holds the headset in place better. And, unlike the Gear VR, you don't need a Samsung phone to use this headset. Recent flagships from Google, LG, Motorola, Asus, Huawei, and ZTE - as well as Samsung -? all now work with Daydream. Games are the only key advantage for the Gear VR. Daydream's library has improved in the last year, but it isn't as stacked as the Gear's, which Oculus has been gradually building since 2014. Before investing in mobile VR today, though, keep in mind that HTC and Lenovo have standalone VR headsets in the pipeline that a) run the Daydream platform, and b) have full 6-degree positional tracking. Oculus also has a standalone headset (without 6DOF tracking) coming next year, running the same platform as Gear VR. Both, however, will cost more than Daydream's $99.

    An affordable intro to VR

    The Daydream View is a great way to get your feet wet in VR. It offers great quality and comfort while still being quite affordable. Not all phones are compatible so research first before buying. I use it with the ZTE Axon 7 phone and it works great. I have not tried other VR units to compare with this so my experience is limited. My main use for this is watching Netflix or digital copies of movies. There are good games available also and those are very immersive. I have not felt any motion sickness but after prolonged use I do experience a small amount of eye strain. The included controller is very easy to use and a must for controlling what you see and interacting with content. The controller has very convenient volume controls which is very helpful, as well. The headset is very comfortable. The top strap is removable but I found it is much more comfortable with it on. This 2017 model has a heat sink for your phone which I feel is a must. After prolonged use your phone will get quite hot. The only negative I have experienced is occasionally I notice the view will slowly drift off to one side. I don't know if this is unique to this product or inherent to all VR at this point. Conveniently the controller has a way to recenter the screen if this ever happens. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with a Daydream compatible phone.
