Samsung Gear VR (Virtual Reality) Headset Review

It might be extremely overwhelming to find a VR device for your phone, especially with a new product being launched on a regular basis. The Samsung Gear VR has garnered huge support and immense popularity among casual customers as well as gadget freaks. Samsung Gear VT is a great VR device when it comes to viewing your favorite movie or music videos. Often we tend to miss out on good films in theaters but when with a gadget like Samsung Gear VR, you are definitely not going to miss the experience.

The Plugins is loaded with great features and once was being provided for free with preorders of the Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy S7. The virtual reality world has been given an interesting twist by Samsung Gear VR. This product is way ahead of its contemporaries both in terms of features and quality.

Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition Features

  • 96-degree FOV (field of view)
  • Gyroscope
  • Accelerometer
  • Proximity sensor
  • Geomagnetic sensor
  • Focal adjustment dial
  • Navigational touchpad
  • Pre-loaded vr content in the Micro-sd card

It is quite similar to the old model and is built from plastic. However, you are going to find the black color even more appealing, while the overall look is nice and stealthy. Other improvements or additions might not be too obvious at the first look but then there are many, if you probe further.

The foam around the glasses is rigid and sits quite properly while you are wandering into the VR world. Even the head strap has undergone changes so as to enhance the comfort level. The product was always functional; however, the improvements have made it even better.

An additional external port has been provided with the headset and you can use that to attach other accessories to the unit. Plug-ins such as Gear 360 and game controllers can be easily attached.

If you are in the list of people who have already used the older version of this VR device then you won’t find any difficulty setting up. For those who are new to Samsung Gear VR, setting up will be no big deal. Just slide in your phone into the device and you will be rebooted to the Oculus interface. The touchpad too has been changed and replaced with a better directional touchpad. You can even switch out the USB post.


  • Samsung Gear VR is completely wireless and you enjoy every moment of your videos and movies
  • The head tracking us simply amazing
  • Preloaded content library has a wide range of content for customers of all age and taste


  • If you love your HD videos then you might be slightly disappointed with resolution, which fails to live up to customer expectations.
  • It is really expensive if you are looking to buy full game content
  • Compatibility is always an issue as it can be used with only a few Galaxy phones.

Go for the Samsung Gear VR only if you are an ardent fan of Samsung devices because this VR device falls short on some of our quality expectations. Overall it’s a decent set and you can use this if you are not ready to shop around for other VR devices.
