Wear it with ease and comfort. It's easy to get lost in the world of virtual reality because the Gear VR is engineered to feel lighter.
Samsung Gear VR - SM-R325 - virtual reality headset is rated4.00 out of5 by26.
Rated 5 out of 5 bycrow49 from More than what I expectedBefore splurging on an expensive unit, I tried this out with my 8plus. Needed to know if I was going to get "car" sick with VR. Some games will have me feeling woozy, so I avoid them. I get nauseated easily with any kind of motion. But most games are fine. I play a lot of High Roller slot game and absolutely love it. The environment is encompassing, putting me inside the game room. Game is colorful and fast and the bonus rounds take me far beyond any casino game can. Other games like zombie shooters are also lots of fun. What I like is that the games are fluid, no stuttering, colorful and detailed as much as the phone can provide. This setup is equal to the Odyssey offered by Samsung in image quality, which is better than anything else out there. I believe you will enjoy it as so many others have. I notice a lot of others out there on the Gear VR so I know it is quite successful in its execution. Try it, you will like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 byjrewrew from Constantly DefectiveI've had two of these, both of them have broken and returned due to a faulty proximity sensor. I cared for both of these headsets, never dropped, or exposed to anything detrimental to it. It's a lot of fun to play with but 100% of the time, they break and become unusable. I don't think I can bring myself to get another one for at least another year until Samsung and Facebook can get this headset right.

Rated 5 out of 5 byJustForFun914 from Fantastic Gear VRThis review is based on a first time short usage of an hour or so and I have not used any VR in the past to compare with.After you get it to work, 3D videos are absolutely rewarding, 2D videos are just a closeup immersion to some extent is what I am finding so far. I am getting used to the device and how to operate, you have to consider limitations of technology, do not expect 100% perfection. Although the device has lot of plastic, I am afraid the strap holder may snap due to plastic, I have not figured out how to use the strap holder that goes over your head, I used the gear with out it.I could not get it to work after spending a few hours, finally I got it to work, hopefully it will keep on working. Down load the manual from Samsung Gear VR web page, and go thru it, it seems overwhelming, but not so bad. If you are using Note 9( or S9+ ?) you need a different device holder (see page 45 in the manual carefully), Samsung provides it in the box, or you have to call them to get it. I have Note 9, type C (not USB) device holder, and pay careful attention as to how to replace, and lock switch positioning, and position A or B for different sizes of phones. After I put the phone in, it prompted for VR app download and installed Occulus, then I took the phone out and followed instructions (make sure you have sound on not on off or vibrate before you do anything) to install. After installing and placing the phone back in, it did not launch Oculus VR app, no matter what I did, I even rebooted the phone. Next day, I went into settings I turned data on (settings, connections, data usage, turned on mobile data on, and data saver off. Previously I had my setting to WIFI only), may be because of this reason, it worked, don't know exactly why it worked this time. when you put your phone into device holder, make sure it goes all the way in, carefully push gently and give a little bit of time to launch the occulus. You need head phones to listen to the sound that gets plugged into the phone. I removed the phone case, and left the screen protector on. I have also seen a few Youtube videos to see how to do initial setup, I wish someone did a comprehensive video. For me, it is worth the money I spent as long as it continues to work, I like Note 9 and the VR Gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 byMAaron87 from Amazing!I'll be honest, my expectations weren't very high. I've used VR glasses before and wasn't impressed. These however, blew my mind. The quality was amazing. I played with these so long I got busy. I didn't want to take them all.

Rated 5 out of 5 byAnikaR from Really a lot of funExcept for the awkwardness, this device is a viewing pleasure.I havn't figured how to link the sound though. So, hearning the the phone isn't easy.Don't regret the pricey purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 byDNY1 from It's ok, has potential.For the price it's a neat little item to have or show off. Biggest problem for me is it's mostly blurry a bit. Some of the VR videos are great but no where near hd quality. Second problem is it freezes. Alot. At least every time ive used it I had to take it apart once because it's frozen.

Rated 5 out of 5 byjulugale from Great VR Experience but design should be improved.VR experience with this product is great! I only find that the visor is heavy and it doesn't matter how many time I adjust the straps, the bottom portion never fits perfectly, something to improve on the design.

Rated 5 out of 5 byBachata from Not compatible with s8 active.Bought a new phone a and got the gear vr for free. I thought great deal with my new S8 active. Tried to hook it up and it doesn't fit GREAT JOB Samsung give away a free device that doesn't do me one bit of good. POOR, POOR PR. I can't even rate anything about it so this is your fault (Samsung) or giving away something that doesn't work with what someone buys.

Rated 5 out of 5 byNov1868 from Great,but ....Overall it's great but, it needs to be redesigned to be Otter box friendly. We spend money to buy cases to protect our phones.The Gear VR and DeX should be made for our phones with cases to fit. I dunno maybe make a 2018 model for case just a thought! Until then people with cases maybe should avoid

Rated 5 out of 5 byAntonioCm1987 from Its Okay i see a few things need to be fixedmy phone barley fits with ghost armor on it suggestion would be that since you have a power plug adapter for it to be used with micro USB and also type c USB plugs i think the adapter plug should be made a little wider for the galaxy note 8 for people that have protective covers over the screen i also think an adapter should be made for people using the note 8 that have otter box defender cases on there phone cant use the vr headset without taking my phone out of the case other problem is it pulls up my ghost armor screen protector because power adapter for the note 8 is to tight for the vr headset but since there adapters i would love to see wider adapters for the USB type c come out for case friendly and even screen protector friendly i would pay 50 buck for the adapters alone if they could be made to accommodate people that use protection on our devices

Rated 5 out of 5 bylovingorca from The Gear VR Is so AWESOME!I find it very therapeutic and fun. It’s a Great stress reliever too. I highly recommend this. I also use real good rechargeable batteries in my remote. The Oculus store now has YouTube VR. I have an app called Viso Places. You can also use your voice to find places. And you can book mark your favorite places. Having My VR helps me relieve stress. I also have two other apps. 1. Medication VR and relax VR. I feel that all therapists should recommend this. I also love riding the virtual roller coasters. Samsung Rocks!
