When you compare the Oculus Quest 2 to the HTC VIVE Focus 3 you can see which VR Headset is better. Let's take a look of the comparison, and see which model of VR Headset out ontop.
A comparison of two virtual reality headsets, the Oculus Quest 2 and the HTC VIVE Focus 3, reveals a number of both pros and cons. Both headsets offer many of the same features, such as standalone VR capabilities, room scale 360 tracking and Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 processors. However, there are also some significant differences between them that should be noted.
The field of view offered by the Oculus Quest 2 is 97° while that of the HTC VIVE Focus 3 is 120°; this is undoubtedly a pro for the VIVE headset as it offers users a wider angle from which to experience their games or videos. Additionally, resolution on the VIVE headset is 2448 x 2448 px compared with 1832 x 1920 px on the Quest 2; again this clearly provides an advantage to those using the VIVE headset who will enjoy higher quality visuals than what’s available with its competitor. Furthermore, refresh rate on the HTC model can reach 90 Hz whereas it caps out at 72 Hz with Oculus – another bonus in favour of its competitor here.
On balance though I preferred using the Oculus Quest 2. Its lighter weight design meant it was much more comfortable to wear and less obtrusive when exploring virtual worlds; plus I found its controls easier to use and navigate my way through menu systems which could save time in certain situations. On top of this was great battery life which gave me plenty of time before having to recharge it again – something not achievable currently with most models on today’s market (including its rival).
To conclude then: if you are looking for superior visual fidelity then opt for the HTC VIVE Focus 3 but if comfort and user friendliness are your primary concerns then go for Oculus Quest 2 instead – either way you will have purchased yourself a great piece of tech!
