The easiest-to-use VR headset yet is affordable but imperfect
cnet.com
  • - 3.65
If you haven't yet bought into VR, the Daydream View could be the best way to get started -- but as of today, we've simply can't say for sure. Google says there'll be 25 apps live today and 50 by the end of the year -- plus a wider array of compatible phones -- but we've only tried 10 of them on a Google Pixel. But if you're already a VR enthusiast looking for the most immersive experiences, you should know that the Daydream may never be anywhere near the level of a HTC Vive, Oculus Rift or PlayStation VR.

New looks and lenses, but no new tricks

Want to try VR but don't want to break the bank? Look no further. With the new Daydream View, you get a comfortable fit, sleek-looking headset, and access to all the immersive Daydream VR apps in the Google Play Store. But you need a compatible Android phone, and you may get bored after a bit.

An improvement, but there’s not much here
techradar.com
  • - 3.5
Google Daydream View (2017) is well built and offers a decent VR experience piped in from your phone. Key changes make it an improvement over the original, though the changes aren’t quite enough to justify the price increase. And with higher-end, PC-powered VR headsets becoming less expensive and the arrival of new standalone devices, mobile VR headsets like Daydream View may soon be obsolete.

MOBILE VR DONE MOSTLY RIGHT
theverge.com
Daydream probably won’t be where I have my most amazing VR moments, and I’m hoping to see wilder and weirder things from Google now that it’s launched. But the View is a much-needed daily driver, a cheap and comfortable venue for the VR mobile apps and videos people point me toward every week. The only question is whether its platform can become something more — and, if it does, just how far it can go.

Small Changes Make a Big Impact

Daydream View's second act has shown that Google is ready to stop playing catchup and start taking the lead in the mobile VR space. The new headset's expanded field of view makes for a more immersive experience, and the aesthetic design changes — such as the bigger, plushier foam plate — cement the Daydream View as the most comfortable VR headset on the market. Overall, though, the Daydream View is an excellent choice for people who want to experience high-quality VR at an affordable price and don't want to be locked into Samsung/Oculus' ecosystem.

Google’s Pixel-perfect Gear VR rival
expertreviews.co.uk
  • - 3
Following on from its cheap and cheerful Cardboard initiative, Daydream View has been built to work hand-in-hand with Android 7.0 Nougat and Google’s new Pixel phones. At £69, it's a touch cheaper than the Samsung Gear VR, but you still need one of those aforementioned Pixel phones in order to use it, as the headset itself doesn't contain any kind of display or electronics. Instead, everything is handled by the phone, so you'll still need to spend a fair amount of cash before you get round to buying the headset

Powered by the Pixel, the first mobile headset of Google's new VR platform gives surprising comfort for very little cost

THE BEST THINGS about the Daydream View, Google's $79 mobile-driven virtual reality headset that comes out today, are what it isn't: Complicated. Heavy. Expensive. Finicky. Most importantly of all, though, it's not Cardboard. Google knows for Daydream to take off, the VR platform has to be as simple as as the assemble-it-yourself cheapo phone holster that's brought so many people into immersive virtual worlds for the first time—just better. Much better.
