Comparing the Oculus Quest and YVR 2 virtual reality headsets, I found a few similarities and some major differences. Starting with their field of view, both have a 95° FOV, but this can be considered a double-edged sword; while it gives you an immersive experience while playing games or watching movies, it also causes some of the peripheral objects to appear distorted in your vision. As for resolution, the Oculus Quest has 1600 x 1440 px compared to the YVR 2's 1600 x 1600 px, which is slightly better on paper; however in my personal experience there wasn't much difference between them in terms of image quality. The refresh rate is where I feel like the two differ most – with 72 Hz on the Oculus Quest and 90 Hz on the YVR 2 – giving more fluid visuals when using YVR 2.
The biggest difference between these two headsets lies in their operating systems: The Oculus Quest runs Microsoft Windows while the YVR 2 uses its own operating system. In terms of Room Scale Tracking and 360 tracking capabilities, both headsets performed very well in my tests; however if you are looking for more precise tracking capabilities then I would recommend going for the YVR2 as it offers slight advantages over its competitor here.
Finally we come to personal preference: After spending time with both headsets I preferred using the Oculus Quest due to its ease-of-use factor - being able to quickly set up and start playing made it easier for me than having to learn how to use a completely new interface as required by the YVR2 headset. Additionally, despite costing slightly more than its competitor – which may turn off some buyers – it felt worth every penny due to its high quality build design and materials that provide good comfort when wearing them during long gaming sessions.
In conclusion, both headsets offer great features that should appeal to different kinds of users; while those seeking higher refresh rates and increased precision tracking should go for YVR2 , those who prefer an easy setup process with good build design should opt for Oculus Quest instead.
