Reviews of the Microsoft HoloLens 2
Hands-on at home with Microsoft's HoloLens 2
cnet.com
Microsoft's headset isn't meant to go everywhere. It's not great in bright daylight; it looks big and helmet-like; and the battery life isn't long. But it's probably the best prototype I've ever tried for what AR glasses will need to do next.

Lighter, with a better view
techradar.com
Microsoft's HoloLens 2 may look like it's designed for a very specific purpose, but the possibilities are endless with this mixed reality headset. The HoloLens 2 looks to improve upon the first-generation device in lots of ways, but whether you'll need to buy one right away is still uncertain.

$3,500 worth of cool
tomsguide.com
I only got a small taste of Hololens 2 and I’m already chomping at the bit to see how it will fare in the real world. But at $3,500, the target audience is clearly limited for now. Microsoft is hard at work tweaking the technology with the hope of bringing mixed reality to the masses. But for now, the headset will be found in only the coolest offices and retail shops, much to my chagrin.

Hands-on Microsoft’s HoloLens 2
immersiv.io
I think the Hololens 2 are a great tool overall, great OS, hand gestures, headset but not too bulky. I see it being used in the future by the most high-end tech companies, but I do not see Microsoft going to B2C as many competitors are already positioned.

The future on your face
digitaltrends.com
At the end of the day, as cool as these experiences all, it’s not for your average consumer. Microsoft says it is designed for enterprise. There are a few use cases, including remote assistance, training & task guidance, collaborative visualization, and contextual data access. Two of its partners are putting all of this to work with apps or services, which is where “Time to Value” comes back in.

The Best In Class For AR, But…
skarredghost.com
HoloLens 2 is considered the best AR headset out there, and after my short time with it, I confirm that it actually is. But I also have to say that it is worse than I expected, and I haven’t come out completely satisfied by it. Turning on the headset and see the “rainbow vision” as the first thing, has been a huge turn down for me. I also expected something more from the voice detection system, and also from the UI/UX, that in my opinion could be better and make hand interaction more effective. The bugs in the OS were also quite annoying for a headset this expensive. Also, not having a demo that can give WOW effect is an issue for this device, which is so harder to sell if you want to show it to your bosses to ask for funds for an AR project.

Ahead Of Its Time, For Better And Worse
uploadvr.com
It’s not an all-day wearable that seamlessly bounces back and forth between productivity and play. It’s often sold directly to businesses for specific purposes, most likely used in bursts of 10 – 20 minutes. Specific as that may be, there isn’t anything else that can match HoloLens 2’s feature-set. The technology to make AR a truly viable new medium can be glimpsed in HoloLens 2, but it’s going to be a long time yet before it’s fully realized. When it finally arrives, though, Microsoft will no doubt be very glad it had this head start.

HoloLens 2 Sets the Benchmark for MR Headsets
xrtoday.com
Barring a couple of cons (like the slightly heavy form factor and limited RAM), Microsoft HoloLens 2 promises a nearly perfect MR experience for enterprise users. A $3500 price tag places it squarely in the large enterprise segment, which is precisely the market Microsoft is targeting with the new HoloLens 2 Industrial Edition. Simply put, HoloLens 2 sets the benchmark MR experiences and brings a slew of innovative features that make it truly best-in-class.
