Intro:

I received a VR headset for review from Gearbest. This headset looks a lot like a cheaper alternative to Samsung Gear VR, or a more deluxe Google Cardboard. Keeping the prices and functionality of both of these devices in mind, I'll use them as a critical comparison of the product.

 

Overview:

The device has a pretty solid build quality over the google cardboard(as to be expected). I was impressed with the comfort of the headstraps and how well it fit my face for the price. It has a useful lens adjustment system. However, one major flaw I had with my device was the distance adjuster(controlled by the dials). It would constantly come loose doing use. Not a huge deal but still worth mentioning.

It has a simple but versatile phone mounting system that you simply pace into a spring vise. It has a magnet that latches it closed. This was nice but I feel a button would be better as it would often be difficult to remove phone if necessary.

The lenses were optimal; they worked without issue. The were easily adjustable with a wheel at the top of the device.

Major complaints:

Other than the distance messing up, one thing would have liked to see was a trigger, so I could tap the screen without taking it out. Many games take advantage of this considering the cardboard had one. 

 

Conclusion:

For $30USD, I can't complain. It's a neat toy to have around. It even has some practical uses, if you need to view a 3d model. I had great fun with it, even on my not so ideal Moto G. It works best on faster and bigger phones, i.e. iphone 6. I got to try it on a 6s and a 6plus. Both amazing experiences that can be compared to Oculus DK1 demos. 

 

In comparison to a Samsung gear, I'd get this over that considering the uses are pretty limited. For a phone, it's mostly a gimmick. As for over the Google cardboard, I'd recommend this if you have a bit extra money and would rather not hold a piece of cardboard to your face like an idiot. Overall excellent device.

Can you use software to turn your phone into a VR headset for your PC? would it work? Well?


 Just because you don't care, doesn't mean other others don't. Don't be a self-centered asshole. -Thank You a PSA from the people who do not say random shit on the internet.

Not sure, I'd have to look into that.
