Virtual reality devices used to be big and bulky until reputable tech manufacturers like Samsung created smaller versions to take entertainment from your smartphone to the next level.
The incredible Samsung Gear VR headset is among the most innovative virtual reality gadgets that is designed and engineered to be fit and function for hours of VR entertainment. With Gear VR, you get smoother images and a wider field of view, with incredibly low leakage of light and anti-reflection features. That way, you can completely take yourself into another world through your smartphone.
Gear VR is lightweight, weighing about 345 grams and about 312 grams without the front cover. The foam cushioning is soft to make the device comfortable for extended wear. The secure strap holder lets you move comfortably and naturally. A large and flat touch pad offers better control and precision with a tap or swipe, and you can easily access the home key to return to Oculus Home or the back key to go to the previous menu.
Gear VR is compatible with Samsung Galaxy smartphones, and some of them are even bundled with the product as an option, like the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. You can connect the smartphone using Micro USB (Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, and Note 5) or USB Type-C (Note 7), and it snaps easily onto the Gear VR.
