    Best accessory for the Note 9

    |
    Posted .

    These VR goggles are the best accessory for my Samsung Note 9 phone. I think they are better than the Oculus goggles because you are not tied to a computer, they don't overheat and the battery lasts a long time (and they cost less). They are a lot of fun at parties seeing peoples reaction to VR for the first time.

    A fun toy

    |
    Posted .

    This is a fun toy. It's like most other phone vr units but with a great controller. I wear glasses and these fit easily over them. My phone has not overheated. I love the use of my camera as a "portal through" and not having to remove headset to function quickly. I did notice a lot of pressure on my face when wearing this. Also the velco can easily get stuck in your hair. It is a pain that you can't take phone calls or respond to notifications while the phone is inserted. Apps are through Occulus Store which causes some problems. Most of my movies are on vudu and not accessible (that I've found) through Occulus.

    Not as good as the last model

    |
    Posted .

    The VR works awesome but my issue with this Note 8 edition is the width. Because its wider to fit the note 8, the light guards that go around your eyes are wider then mine and my friends heads which leaves alot of light leaking in unless you use it in the dark or wrap a towel or something around it. Unfortunately I have the Note 8 so Im forced to have this one. Also its not designed to be used with a phone with a screen protector so if you have one it will wrinkle it up at the bottom. The VR experience is worth the hassel but I wish I still had my s7 edge model. However I love my note 8.

    Great addition to Galaxy S9

    |
    Posted .

    Picked up one of these as an Opened Box while I was waiting for my S9 preorder to come. I had heard a lot of good things about it, but I really didn't think a relatively inexpensive, mobile VR experience could be impressive. I was wrong. The picture quality is actually pretty good, and the immersion is definitely there. I let my teenage daughter try out the free "Stranger Things: Face Your Fears" experience and I don't know who had more fun - her or me. She asked if she could hold my hand as she cringed seeing the 'upside down' close in around her! If you have a recent Samsung phone and haven't tried VR yet, this is definitely worth checking out!

    Pretty Good VR

    |
    Posted .

    The lenses still fog a lot. Have to pull away from my face and shake a bit to get it to go way. VERY ANNOYING. It's also not very comfortable to wear for more than 20 minutes or so. The remote is awesome and makes a lot of sense. Works like a laser pointer. The resolution depends on the phone you use but the screen door effect is definitely still there, though not so noticeable. High quality videos on my Note 8 look really good but lower than 2k looks pretty bad, worse than standard def. Quite blurry. Umm.. that's all I got. Give me my 25 points now.

    It works - It still has some kinks, but it works.

    I bought this because it was cool - I really wanted to lay on my back and watch tv on the ceiling (lol). It works, but it is hard to get it to work, on hulu, Netflix. The buttons are temperamental. It will work then switches back then works. once it is going it works great. It does not work for the games/other things as far as I can tell - you cannot be super lazy, have to sit up to do them. Bummer, hoping for total laziness. Also, I bought it at best buy then found it at target for 50$ less - that was super annoying!! but not going to return it.

    SAMSUNG Gear VR 2017, looking better

    |
    Posted .

    Depending on the resolution of your cell phone... this new model offers incredible VR. The landscapes and colors are vibrant especially on the Note 8 larger screen. Of course there's always warnings for those who are faint of heart because of the reality factor. The touch controls on the VR side and hand controls are easy to use and responsive. Great job Samsung - a great update for connecting your USB C phone, comes with micro usb as well. Samsung keep an open mind for expanding sales of and offer a Lighting adapter for apple fans.

    Comfortable fit and quality build. Only the best from Samsung. The new remote is very accurate and intuitive. Only thing I would improve on would be expanding the field of view and the ability to use two remotes.

    Fun item

    |
    Posted .

    This has been a fun item for my grandchildren and their friends. I've also enjoyed using it, but it can become very addictive. The downside is that I bought one when I bought my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. When I upgraded my phone to the S9+, I had to buy another one because the new phone didn't fit the old GEAR. I guess that's considered to just be a good busness practice for the maker. I did have a hard time linking the blue tooth hand controller to my phone. Bottom line is that it is very enjoyable and fun item to own.

    Great first VR - no drag or buffering

    |
    Posted .

    I have been waiting a long time to get one and this was worth the wait. Samsung and Oculus are delivering a great experience. there are enough apps to keep most folks entertained and its' easy to use. The remote is great and it works well without the remote too!! Plus you can charge while you use and do headphones to keep your partner happy.

    A fun gadget at a fair price.

    Posted .

    Samsung Gear is my first VR device. Using it with Note 8. The physical setup was easy. The remote is convenient. It does require a lot of downloaded software, but this is to be expected. It does take some time to adjust to using it without feeling somewhat disoriented. Picture sharpness is not good enough to use for a long time. If you want to jump into VR without spending a lot of money, this is a good way to go.

    Samsung Gear VR Goggles awesome!

    Posted .

    I was in the store and this was the last one. Was not looking to spend this much but had Samsung galaxy note 8 which this fits. Guy behind me whispered "Oh looks like he has the last one" I had the box in my hand reading it. I could not put it down at this point and decided to go for it. I am so glad I did. This thing is awesome I can access all the apps on my phone too with the Samsung cast too unbelievable!!!!

    Works great with my note 9. Only complaint was I ordered it open box in "excellent" condition which meant it was supposed to include everything including the remote but the remote was missing. They gave me a credit and I was able to order one separate on Amazon.

    It works, but apps on phone are choppy. Maybe phone due to it being a little older, S7. Cant compliance though. I want really looking for one when I got it. It was open boxand price was low so I said why not. So cost was fine for what I paid. When it isn't choppy, it's really cool, so much so I now want the one that doesn't require a cell phone. I never even thought of purchasing, now have to have. I would recommend for entry into VR.

    I got this for my daughter the saturday after black friday and got it with a bundle deal with the 360 camera. Needless to say i set it up for play tuesday so it would be ready when given to her on christmas day. I was blown away and wanted it for myself instantly. I went back to best buy to buy another bundle for myself and was told that was a black friday bundle and that special has now passed. I wished i wouldve set it up the day i bought it because i wouldve bought 2.

    Good but pricey and needs more apps

    |
    Posted .

    I enjoy the abililty to access the VR technology utilizing my phone but I feel the goggles and controller are a bit overpriced for what they are. Wish there were more apps as well. Had to buy a separate game controller in order to access games like Minecraft VR. I like it for viewing my Gear 360 videos and pics. Overall it functions nice for an introductory VR experience.
