Samsung Gear VR's best feature isn't the Galaxy S8, it's the controller

The revamped Gear VR feels similar to Google's Daydream View VR headset, but its impressive library and software design still make it great for entry-level VR viewing on the go.

XR Today puts the Samsung Gear VR headset to the test in 2021
xrtoday.com
Compared to some of the other market-leading VR headsets on the market today, the Samsung Gear VR is a little limited. There’s only so much you can accomplish with a smartphone strapped into a VR headset. However, this product does offer a good entry point to the world of VR for companies that don’t have a lot of cash to splash on extra technology. If you’re a true beginner to the world of VR, or you already have a Samsung device and want to explore new features, give the Gear a go.

Why It’s Much Better than Google Cardboard
360rumors.com
Gear VR is a solid VR system. It is truly capable of creating a convincing VR illusion that is far more impressive than what you can experience from Google Cardboard. Watching through Gear VR feels more similar to Oculus Rift than the Google Cardboard. True, the Gear VR doesn’t have positional tracking but it is more affordable, accessible and portable. Most importantly, it is supported by many third parties and there is a growing number of apps.

A New Way to Play

  • - 4.5
The Samsung Gear VR continues to be one of the most popular mobile VR headsets on the market. But that doesn't mean Samsung is resting on its laurels. To coincide with the launch of the new Galaxy S8 and S8+, the company has once again revamped the Gear VR, debuting a new color and a new peripheral in an effort to make your virtual reality experiences that much more immersive. Throw in the Gear VR's ever-growing library of content (over 600 apps and counting), and you've got one the best VR headsets around.

Samsung Gear VR

If you’re a newcomer to virtual reality then the Gear VR is an affordable try-it-out option. It’s not going to compete with the PC-powered or standalone VR headsets, but if you’re already a Samsung Galaxy owner then it’s a pretty good pick. The content selection continues to grow and it’s also easy to use once it’s set up. The fact there’s now a controller means that it’s so much easier to play games too. However, if you don’t already own a Galaxy Smartphone, then it’s probably not the best choice given that it won’t be compatible with your existing phone.

The Gear VR supports all four Galaxy S10 phones

If you’re interested in VR and are looking for a new smartphone, then Gear VR should be sufficient reason to turn your head Samsung’s way. You don’t have to spend a fortune, nor will you need a high-spec PC to run any of its games, unlike with the premium Oculus and HTC headsets. This 3rd generation Gear VR is also much more comfortable than previous editions, which means you can play for longer periods of time, and the addition of a motion controller vastly improves the interactivity of the VR experience.

Samsung Gear VR (2017) Review
pcmag.com
  • - 3.5
I just can't recommend Gear VR enthusiastically until I feel the store and platform are richer and more stable. And if games aren't your thing, there also just isn't enough there. VR content platforms like Samsung VR and Within still feel like a stack of early demos and short movies made by content creators who did a few things and then left. There's no continual stream of new, engaging apps. Samsung's Gear VR headset becomes much more usable with a handheld controller, but finding good virtual reality content is frustrating.

The best of the best when it comes to mobile headsets, but only if you have one of the compatible Samsung phones

This headset is exceptionally comfortable to wear and is incredibly immersive. It's easy to use and while it doesn't offer quite the same level of interactiveness that the tethered headsets have, this product retails at a fraction of the price.
