Disclaimer: I own an Oculus Rift DK2 and take keen interest in VR. As such, this is a review comparing the experience to DK2 and upcoming consumer version.
I received this as part of S7 preorder. The phone needs to download the software after being connected for the first time, after which you're free to explore what it offers.
Consider this a preview of VR tech. Lack of positional tracking hurts the experience, but it's still quite impressive - and with a catalog of commercial software you get to see its potential. In fact, due to the use of the already well supported Oculus SDK, it's quite easy to develop for.
GearVR is light and comfortable on the head, and easy to put on. There's no extra battery to charge, as it is powered by the phone itself.
The focus adjustment range is impressive. I have a -5.5 myopia, and I am able to use it without eye correction. This will not be the case with Rift/Vive. However, this has non-adjustable IPD - if yours is outside 55-71mm range you will have an uncomfortable time with it.
Note that some extra purchases are recommended:
1) A Lenspen + microfiber cloth. The lenses are a dust magnet, and your phone has to be clean when you put it in. It's a shame no cleaning solution is included.
2) A gamepad. It's a more natural control scheme for some of the apps. This depends on what you're planning to do with GearVR.
There's also no carrying solution included. I have not found a suitable one yet.
