Interesting low cost, but high quality VR experience

The VR is great if you already have a Note 4, S6, S6 Edge or S6 Edge+. In those cases it's an amazing experience for the money you get. If you have to buy a phone to make this work, then that might not be the case anymore.

Your phone clips into the VR smoothly and keeps it safe. Even playing taxing games will only drain your battery about a third per hour. If you are worried, you can even plug in power while playing, though that removes one extremely good thing about it: The freedom to move without cables. Other VR systems tether you to a computer and this is where you will come to love this particular gadget. You twist and turn without being cable bound.

The tracking is nothing short of amazing. With the wheel in the center top of the device you can adjust the sharpness so even if you have strong glasses you can use it without contacts or glasses. Then every move you make feels like you are in that space it projects to you. There is no lag or delay like in older systems. Some people I showed this to even felt like they were standing at a cliff in one of the games and had slight anxiety of falling down from that. That says it all.

Having tested it on about a dozen people now, only one said he felt a little queasy after using it for a couple minutes, everyone else had no reaction whatsoever. The tracking is so good that you don't get motion sick or simulation sickness in most cases. Only if you start to do some rather violent head movements (headbanging) you can get the sensors to twitch a little, nothing you would do while playing the games or watching the videos.

On the software side, it uses the Oculus store and app. So you can buy games and videos (and play a few interesting demos for free) and could also use them later on other devices using the same store. So buy once, use again. There are not many items available at the time of this writing (middle of January 2016) but it seems to have more added all the time.

Passez votre chemin.

Ayant acheté ce casque pour but d'utiliser le logiciel Trinus sur mon PC pour jouer à mes jeux PC sur un casque VR de smartphone, je peux vous dire qu'il est décevant.

Déjà votre téléphone est encapsulé dans son petit espace donc impossible de brancher un câble micro USB directement à l'appareil, vous allez me dire "La sortie micro USB à l’extérieur du casque", Ouais mais non, cette sortie à l’extérieur du casque ne sert QUE pour charger votre téléphone et encore...Donc branchement du téléphone au PC IMPOSSIBLE.

Ensuite j'ai voulu avoir Youtube pour visionner une vidéo, eh bien, impossible. Vous êtes bloqué dans l'application merdique de Oculus où le 90% des applications il faut payer, vous ne trouverez pas d'application Youtube.

La seule chose bien c'est la qualité de fabrication du casque, il est de bonne qualité, le reste ? Laissez tomber sérieusement.

Très déçu de Samsung et encore + de Oculus...

    Lustige Spielerei jedoch nicht zu vergleichen mit VR-Brillen

    Habe es zu meinem S7 mitgeliefert bekommen. War cool um mal VR zu erleben jedoch ist die Auflösung nicht sehr gut.

    Will collect dust after a few days

    Not even PCs are ready for VR let alone consoles and mobile. If you want to experience VR just to have an idea and out of curiosity go for it. For the rest pretty useless, in best case you can use it to watch low definition netflix. 

    Pro

    • Cheap way to get an idea of how VR works

    Contra

    • Mobiles are not powerful enough for VR
    • Not many app which usually are bad too
    • Low resolution
    • Many Samsung devices tend to overheat after 10 min

    Nur für zwischendurch

    Ausprobiert mit meinem Samsung S6. Preis/leistung stimmt absolut. Die Pixel sind zu sehen und leider überhitzt das Natel bereits nach 15-20 minuten und muss abgekühlt werden.
