It came with a controller, which, unfortunately, had no instructions with it. It took a little bit of fiddling to figure out that you plug it into a USB cord to charge it (it didn't come with one, but my Galaxy S6 charger worked fine on it). Then you press the tiny start button in the middle and hold it down. It helps if you have a flashlight, since the labels of the buttons are in black -- on a black background. Then I had to go into my phone's settings, under Bluetooth, enable Bluetooth, wait for it to find the device, and select it.
I tried it with the DebrisDefrag for Cardboard app (the first one I could find that needed the controller). To shoot things, I had to switch the little slider on the left to "game" and then press the X button to shoot down the space rocks. The explosions were very satisfying.
Wearing it does get a little hot, since the leather is padding is tight against your face.
It is EXTREMELY immersive. I also tried it with my favorite app -- the Go4DVR app from Goggle Tech, where you're walking around a space station. It really felt that you were there. I kept reaching out for things, and ducking under stuff.
So why not five stars?
No adjustment for distance between the two lenses, and the distance between the lenses and the phone. Most other mid-priced headsets have at least one of those, usually both.
The Freefly guys say there's a reason for this, because of the extra-wide lenses they use or something like that, and they picked the distance that would work for most people.
I do have funky vision and wear glasses sometimes, and I do appreciate it when I have the opportunity to adjust the lenses.
With the Freefly, everything seemed a little out of focus to me, especially when there was text on the screen.
I have a couple of other headsets -- a Goggle Tech C1-Glass, which is open sided, a couple of cardboard ones, and a Sunnypeak.
The Sunnypeak would be the closest comparison in terms of price and form factor. The Freefly is much, much lighter than the Sunnypeak and is much more comfortable to wear. It also seemed a big sturdier and better designed in the way it was put together and how the phone fits into it. But the Sunnypeak has both kinds of lens adjustments, so everything is in focus.
The Sunnypeak had a narrower field of view -- the Freefly screen took up pretty much your entire field of vision, thanks to those special lenses.
And the Sunnypeak also didn't come with a controller, but the Freefly controller worked fine with it (since it actually works with the phone itself -- the headset is just a plastic holder.)
If you don't have vision issues, of the two, I would definitely recommend the Freefly. If you do have vision issues -- well, you definitely can't wear your glasses with the Freefly (I just tried -- nope, nope, nope). Check the return policy before you buy it, or have a friend get it and try theirs, first.
It's currently $85. I got mine with a promo code for about $60 (sorry, the promo already expired). The controller is sold separately for $10, so, the headset itself cost me about $50 -- and it is definitely worth the price.
Especially compared to, say, the $37 Sunnypeak. And if not for the everything-slightly-out-of-focus thing, it would be worth the full $85 to me.
Oh, and the Freely also comes with a nice padded carrying case. So that's another plus there.
This was my first smartphone VR headset. Boy is it comfortable! It's nice and soft and snug around your face. The field of view, 120°, is incredible. It will absolutely fit an iPhone 6 Plus. That's what I used.
I had to return it because there's no manual adjustments for inter-pupil-distance or focus. I tried the Sunnypeak as a replacement but that unit is uncomfortable and the field of view is considerably more narrow. However the adjustments on the Sunnypeak at least allows stuff to be in focus. Next, I tried the Imoch. It has a larger field of view, but, again isn't very comfortable -- ugh.
The Freefly does fog up, like so many others mention. This can be reduced by using an anti-fogging product like "Spit". Also, once it heats up from 10 minutes or so of use, the fogging diminishes.
I didn't find the remote to be useful when pairing with an iPhone 6. I didn't spend too much time trying to get it to work though. It doesn't come with a charging cable (a little surprising). I have several micro-usb cables, so this didn't bother me at all. However, for a $80 unit, you'd think they could include a cheap charging cable.
I'd be keeping this and I'd even pay more if this unit just had the ability to adjust focus and IPD. Fiddlesticks!
For what it's worth, I *HIGHLY RECOMMEND* installing Media Station VR when using ANY VR headset with an iPhone. To me, it's the Killer-App that got me highly motivated to get a good quality VR headset.
If you have an android, I'm sure you'll enjoy this product. It fit my iPhone 6s Plus just fine with some wiggle room left. It's comfortable on the face and will fit glasses. It has adjustments on the outside of the headset so you can easily adjust the view without removing the mask to turn the lenses like I've seen on cheaper models. If I had an android phone I might give this a 5 star review, but it's upsetting that they stopped supporting iOS without much of a warning..
