Rated 1 out of 5 by from FALSE ADVERTISEMENT The description clearly says that it is compatible with Galaxy 8+, yet when I purchased this my 8+ was too large to fit. The adaptor that comes in the box extends the USB port by a centimetre, which means there's no room for my phone to fit after that. On the Samsung website the VR Gear comes with both the Micro USB and USB Type-C ports (interchangeable), yet this one only came with one. Now I have to go spend extra money on a port that is supposed to be included? There is no tech support at Indigo either, so they push you to call Samsung, but Samsung refuses to do anything since this is being sold by Indigo. So frustrating and a waste of my time. Would not recommend for other S8+ users.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gear VR Meant For Note7 Although this VR headset was meant for the Note7, and i had to return my perfectly working Note7 due to the recall, the headset works great. I do wish there was more of a variety in games. When i did turn in the Note7, i got back an S7 Edge, and no matter the VR app, i would always get interruptions in signals or i would get slow reactions or just a slow game. Now i have just an S7, and the biggest issue i have with this phone is that its a smaller screen, which means adjustments have to be made for the S7 to fit into the Gear VR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product just wish there was more games Bought this to go with my Note 7 and was in love, the images were clear and crisp. After I had to return my Note used it with the S7 edge. The screen was not as good as the Note but was entertained none the less. Scared my friends and family, just wish there was more content in the game store. There are ways to make it work with cardboard( do a search to easily found out how) so you can get more games. I highly advise you to read the reviews and look at the comfort levels of the games. Some games I can play with no problem others make me feel "car-sick",

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gear VR 2016 is fantastic Since I've had my Samsung VR, I tossed those old ones away. These will really put you in the drivers seat, sure surprised me, so I put them to a test, and my brother almost feel out of his seat, he's wanting a set now. They are really quite impressive. The fitting is quite comfortable, and I have not had any problems with moisture colleting on the lens piece. All I need now is a wireless handset, and I will be set. Thank You,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Vr headset on the market Got this back in october. This is one of the best Vr headsets you can get for the price point. I have had other Vr headsets and the Gear Vr beats all by far. I use the Gear Vr on my samsung S7 and S6. Wish it worked on my Note II, but it dosnt. Watching movies on This is really enjoyable. It is also really comfortable to wear for long viewing. I would recommend This to anyone wanting a really good Vr experience. Already got my brother to pick one up And i will get another one when the samsung S8 comes out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from refuses to down load Have had this for about three months now and it refuses to download any software from VR site. I have tried on several forums to address this even down to enabling my FB app (which I dont want too). THis does not work..I have several items that I have purchased from Samsung one most recently I came back for the S6...The VR is a great disappointment. I can even use it due to not being able to down load any software.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fun!! There is a grainy quality to the videos that I've watched, but it still feels like I'm in the action or in the city I'm visiting. The apps are very cool and I have a few favorites I show to my family and friends to wow them! No one can believe I got this for the price that it was. I've had a great time using it and I can't wait to explore more of the gear vr and explore the world from my couch until I can one day explore the world in real life. The only thing that could really use an improvement if the fit/comfortability of the device on my head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!!! They work great, are easy to use (as long as you pay attention to the booklet when setting it up and get to the page where it tells you there are 2 settings for the 2 sized phones), It's so much fun. Got slightly nauseated at first, stopped for a bit, then put them back on and was fine. My son also got one and you can "add a friend" and play together, haven't set that up yet. My husband wants one but he has an iphone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SAMSUNG GEAR VR Unable to register my product because the serial number inside the Gear VR or the box appears not to be the right numbers/alphabets. Also, 20mins into the viewing of the VR , it gives a message to let the battery cool down. That can be annoying when you watching a movie or enjoying the scenery.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Samsung gear vr. so disappointing!!! Samsung did not take into consideration that we that own Samsung Galaxy S7 phone have protective shields for the screens and cases. I bought my husband this for christmas this Samsung gear vr. He was so disappointed because to use the gear vr, he would have to remove the case Cover and the protective glass shield to make connection with the USB connector. I called Samsung and now waiting for instructions to return this item. Very Disappointed!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from VR is entertaining Overall enjoyed the VR. Great to get it free as part of S7 purchase. Inserting the phone to VR has been problematic some times. Some times VR mode kicks in and some times it does not. Else this is a good start. Wish the dinosaur video was longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Lot of Fun My husband bought this for me for Christmas and I have hardly put it down since. The graphics are really good and most are quite realistic. So far I have only tried the free apps and have enjoyed most of them. Some of the horror ones are quite scary. I really like Face Your Fears and the game Bait!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good value Based on price I had assumed this would be a reasonable, but not incredible step up from Google Cardboard, which I had found impressive a year earlier. The difference, however, is night and day. This is much more comfortable, much better at tracking movements, and much clearer. Highly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Promising tech, but the free apps are disappointing so far. The 360° content is quite interesting, but too frequently only its computer generated menus have any 3D depth-perception that isn't worth the reduced resolution of what functions as mostly an expensive hands-free convenience. Most of the free "VR" apps I've tried so far deserve that designation even less, maybe I'm just spoiled since I setup my PC for 3D Blu-rays and got limited stereo-optic 3D compatibility with many of my existing games while staying in high definition. GearVR's Oculus just released 8 more free apps around Christmas Eve 2016, hopefully they will be encouraging enough for me to try buying a VR app. Also, even my newest gamepad is apparently an incompatible or proprietary version of Bluetooth so it will only work wired, which will probably drain my smartphone's battery even faster.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Tech! After receiving the gear VR, I was so excited. I'm big into the technological world, and this is definitely the future of technology. You can tell that just by the way you emmerse yourself into the games/apps. It's a great way to have a break from reality. I really hope that they work on expanding the games and apps, and I'm excited to be a part of that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The future of virtual reality... I must say that this is pretty amazing and technology will only get better. There is no perfection on HD quality when looking through, even with the focus knob adjusted. I am sure that going forward with this technology it will become more clear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, but if you wear glasses... Works great. If you wear glasses to see things clearly in the distance, go ahead and wear them because if you don't wear them, it is just as if you are driving down the road without your glasses because things are blurry. However nothing gets really really sharp in focus even wearing the glasses. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty awesome but... The gear VR is an awesome accessory and I enjoying it so far my only complaint is that you are not able to insert your Samsung Galaxy phone into it if you have any kind of case on it I think they should have made more room for the phone and instead of when you insert it having to plug it in to the adapter at the same time they should have made some kind of little cord that hang off the side and plugged into your phone to give it more flexibility. Also they should have made it compatible with more phones like the Galaxy 5

Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for, and mine was free. Terrible design! You have slide in the correct USB adapter which slides easier than it slides in. 1 out of 5 times it will slide out. Graphics are all pixelated. It is fun for the first day and then all the problems get annoying. The most frustrating part is it takes at least 5 attempts to get it to work. When you open the app, it instructs you to connect the phone, but even being extremely careful, somehow it returns the the home page and you have to disconnect, retap the VR, reconnect again. Very frustrating. I am selling mine on eBay, [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive VR product Overall the gear VR is good. It allows you to jump right in and experience what VR has to offer. The graphics for games are ok. They are not at their best just yet. Watching videos is really awesome with the VR. It allows you to look around the video and explore the environment (given that your watching a 360 video). The only downside is having to use your phone as the content display. You are unable to use it for long periods of time without getting a message on the screen stating that the device needs to cool down for optimal performance. If you ignore the message it will eventually tell you to let device cool down before you are able to use it again. For the price I can't argue with it. I would recommend this as a starter to the VR experience.
Date published: 2016-12-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gear VR is the best VR out there for the price Considering how little it costs if you use a Samsung device, this beats all of it's competition. I can't say that I've used the others, so I can't compare it, but it beat my expectations hands down. I love that I can watch 3D movies while laying horizontal in my massage chair. Add a pair of Bluetooth Level Over headphones and a controller and you have basically a head-mounted game system. Pretty amazing

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The future has come started to come to fruition At first things seem seem frustrating but you soon truly realize how awesomely amazingly cool just taking a 5min roller coaster ride or watching the start of what is sure to be a game changingredients animated movie can truly be. I have witnessed over and over with friends and family I make try it out have them same reactions, myself included. You can't help but be swept away to feel part of what has become the world your eyes can see but your body not feel, except maybe that gut wrench going over that first fall of the coaster lol. My only issue has been the time is short lived bursts, my phone gets too hot within 30/45min if that, and requires dismount to cool. Cooling fan accessory is a definite must buy for presents. And every now and then lens will get foggy, but usually after temp changes I'm taking. Can't see where we will be in just 5yrs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product I love this thing. The games are amazing and more are added regularly. The only thing that I don't really like is how quickly my phone gets hot when I'm playing, and have to stop mid game. Hopefully, they'll find a fix for that. It's definitely worth the money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Piece of junk. The Oculus software has been updated 3 times or more times, it still is a piece of junk that only works occasionally. Don't waste your money, it's pretty cool but only if it works. Nothing I have done will make it work. I have restarted my phone several times I have uninstalled and reinstalled all of the software. I have contacted Oculus support, I have spent money on games that I can't play because this junk won't work. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would not have thought I am almost 50 and the gear we got was for my 2 boys: I bought another! These things are so easy to use and so much fun!! We also bought 2 wireless remotes. The scary "games" are REALLY scary!!!! We love them. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow this thing is amazing I love the Vr I saw a cheaper one and when I put this on all I could say was Wow! It's simple design and use. Feels durable. The limitations to this primarily revolve around software and phone capabilities. I quickly found out that the phone overheats with intensive use but can be managed. This is not supposed to work with a Note 4 and there are videos to show you how to modify it. Don't follow those videos as I opened the box and popped my Note 4 in and it works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product This VR is great easy to use. Comfortable, lightweight, overall great. Only complaint, clarity I feel no matter how I fine tune the focus it's still blurry a bit at least in menu options. But that could be normal. Videos and games still play crystal clear. I love this and am gonna tell everyone they need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another excellent product from Samsung After I had to turn in Note 7 I stayed with Samsung with my S7 Edge. While looking for accessories I decided to get the VR. Definitely a Good choice. Extremely comfortable and well made. Samsung has done it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME I was very skeptical especially when it was a promotional offer for buying the 7S edge. It arrived and I downloaded the oculus and Samsung VR apps. I couldn't believe how dynamic the 3D color and picture detail were. The only issue I have is that I was supposed to $50 worth of free selected videos from Oculus and I never received a code. Still figuring out all the options and functions but I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 2016 model of the Gear VR is the best yet! There are several differences between this 2016 version and the 2015 version that definitely make it worth the upgrade. Many improvements have already been listed in previous comments: -Headset is smaller. -Improved, thicker padding (especially around the nose) for better comfort and allows less light in while still allowing room to wear eyeglasses. -Field of view is noticeably wider. -Resolution is sharper. -It's much lighter in weight. -The touchpad is now smooth - no unnecessary up, down, left, right grooves -Instead of just the volume rocker and the 'back' button, the back button has been enlarged and another dedicated 'home' button has been addednext to the 'back' button above the touchpad. -Proximity sensor is fixed in this model. -It's has more ventilation: with the phone in the Gear VR, the back of the phone is completely exposed to the air for maximum heat dissipation. (My GS7 Edge would still overheat in the 2015 Gear VR... and the GS6 Edge lasts much longer in this headset before it overheats). Lastly, -With the addition of interchangeable MicroUSB and USB-C connection points, as well as a USB-C charging port on the underside with an included adapter for MicroUSB charging cables, it was designed to be backwards compatible with existing Galaxy S and Galaxy Note models and at the same time work with future Samsung Galaxy phones. For example: compatible phones are the GS6, GS6 Edge, GS6 Edge+, Note 5, GS7, GS7 Edge, and the Note 7... EVEN THOUGH NO ONE SHOULD HAVE A NOTE 7. Future models of the Galaxy S series and Galaxy Note series will all convert to the latest universal standard port, USB-C.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't believe my eyes! I can't believe virtual reality has been made this affordable! Would be good if more apps were available like YouTube without crazy workarounds and Samsung control game pads would be helpful too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Was great to use on the Netflix VR app Simply put, the Netflix app was the best. Unfortunately I only got to watch 2 movies until Oculus decided to stop supporting the Note7 during the recall.
Date published: 2016-10-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did not expect to fall in love with these! I have had them for about 2 weeks now and I love to watch movies on them, it feels like you are really at the movies or in whatever setting you choose. I seriously use them every night to watch movies while I'm laying down. They are great! I haven't really played any games on them but for the price you can't beat it considering your phone is the most expensive part. Just make sure you don't need to make phone calls while using them, but you can always call people back if they do call you while you are wearing these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my 2nd Samsung VR - Improvements Made I like that this VR it is capable and compatible with more than one mobile phone like my last VR which could only work with my Note 4. My Note 4 died and with its demise so goes the ability to use my first VR. I think the quality has improved but I attribute this to now using a Samsung S7 Edge. Bottom line it's great fun and is a good educational tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great goggles for the price The Samsung Gear VR 2016 goggles is a great product for the price. The new control pad is much easier to use, allowing users to make selections in a much smoother fashion. I also like that an interchangeable handset (cellphone) plug-in capability was added. My only negative about this device comes from the lack of a cooling fan to prevent your handset (cell phone) from overheating, causing you to end your VR experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value entry into VR Let me start by saying that I'm impressed by the technology. I was shocked at how well a phone paired with this Gear VR worked. I didn't think it was possible. I tried cardboard and thought it was ok, but this is a true upgrade from that, without having to buy a Rift and new computer. It is truly immersive and fun to play with. Two major cons from me telling the everyone I know to go buy one right now: 1. My phone overheats within about 5 to 10 minutes of use (Galaxy S6 Edge). I am hoping to try using a fan to get me longer runs. 2. I would love to see the ability to have a wired controller that can plug into the headset, rather than buying a Bluetooth controller. Otherwise and excellent looking device and works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product will blow your mind! The Gear VR is the next step in mobile vr simulators. It looks great, comfortable, and is extremely light so you don't need to worry about it feeling like a weight. The features of the Gear VR are amazing. It puts you in your own world and just everything is crisp and beautiful. The controls are very easy to use and become second nature after a couple times. The apps you can get aready great. There are plenty of games and entertainment. I especially like Oculus Video. This is basically your theater for movies in HD and even 3D and you can choose from different perspectives of watching it. Overall this product is amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hours of Fun and Exploration. I have the Note 7 with the promo 256Gig card. I ordered the VR a couple of weeks ago and i have to say that this is one of the most innovative technologies to come along in a long time. Every friend that has seen this has said the same thing 'WOW'. I had friends over this sunday for football and I didnt get to look at my phone for 6 hours. They kept passing the VR back and forth and were all amazed. The growing library is great and i can't wait to see the continued product offerings from Oculus. It does get a little warm after an hour or so, so keep the fan on you! I will be purchasing the 360 degree camera from samsung next boating season so i can share our fun times out on the lake with my friends.....

And it's twice as much fun to watch other people try it out. Great product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok The reason I'm giving it three stars is because I could never got to get a clear image of the pictures, and the writing was even worse to be able to read. I used the note 7 which is the best phone so far, so it's not the phone problem and also watched the pictures and videos that was on the demand specific for the device. I have a perfect vision and, after looking through it for about an hour, I needed two hours to recuperate. The design is nice and very easy to use, no doubt about it, it just didn't work for me even though I've wanted it so bad since it came out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My First Voyage into VR OK so I really didn't know what to expect as I have never tried VR before. So when I decided to get the Note 7 I ordered the Gear VR 2016's. When I got them it was about a week after getting my Note 7. So when I broke them out the box I was pumped because I had heard so much about the VR experience. I can say I love watching movies on this thing especially 3D movies. I am not really happy about the clarity because I expected it to be totally HD since I had the Note 7 that has the best screen I have ever seen on a phone. But all and all I love it -- cant wait to see the development of more VR content.
