Samsung's $99 Gear VR launches in November, adds virtual reality to all new Samsung phones (hands-on)


Think you'll need to spend thousands of dollars on a powerful PC before you set foot in a virtual world? Maybe not: This November, Samsung's $99 headset will let you do it with any new Samsung smartphone.

It's worth noting that smartphone VR experiences like the Gear VR aren't nearly as immersive as what you can get with a dedicated virtual-reality headset like the Oculus Rift. While you can turn your head in virtual reality with a Cardboard or a Gear...

Review: Samsung Gear VR


Samsung has a tendency to chase trends, so when the Gear VR was announced, we couldn't help but roll our eyes. What on earth was Samsung doing getting into virtual reality? Silly us. More than a year later, it's Samsung that looks like the trendsetter.

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

Awesome! must try!


I absolutely love my Samsung gear VR that came with my Galaxy S8+. The first attempt to set it up took longer than usual as I wasn't clipping the phone in correctly and at one stage the phone fell out! Apart from the first time you try it, you...

A bit of a gimmick but works ok


Got it with my phone. Have access to a proper HTC Vive VR at work and this pales in comparison. However it retails for a lot cheaper. I have mixed feelings, on one hand it showcases VR technology, and makes it accessible. On the other hand it's only a...

Good if you already have a Samsung phone


This product works great, and is well worth the money for you already have a Samsung phone that fits. The picture quality is good but does have a screendoor effect, watching animated moves looks best. There isn't much content otherwise, most of the...

Great Product, however not worth it.


I got this for free with a Samsung Galaxy s8+. Prior to this, I had used a Google cardboard for the 'VR experience', however, it was rather mediocre compared to the Gear VR. The tracking works great, however, the lack of positional tracking removes...

Dont bother getting it just.


While I think future versions will be excellent the 2016 model is not, the lenses are so blurry it makes you feel very sick, and it's a pain to navigate the menus. Overall it has a lot of potential but unless you can pick it up for about $40 or less...

Not bad, but not worth it


I got this free when I bought my Samsung S7 edge. It's not bad, it's just that there aren't a lot of VR experiences available. Also, something that isn't a fault of the Samsung Gear VR, but VR experiences make you feel nauseous. If you experience...

A lot of fun


es still require you to wear the helmet forbthem to download! Once loaded I found many of the titles great. Full 360 immersion. A lot of the graphics were of a high standard and the 360 movies amazing. Quality is variable and some titles are lame, but...

Very Dissappointed


I have spent hours trying to view downloaded content (samsung content) to use with this device. I cannot view anything unless its through Oculus and it wont accept any of the downloads available on play store. The only content you can view is through...
