The Samsung Gear VR with Controller
The Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus allows you to enjoy 2D, 3D, and 360-degree content by connecting it with your mobile device.
You can also view webpages and your own 360-degree images or videos. Connect other devices, such as the included Gear VR controller or other Bluetooth game controllers, with the mobile device for a more immersive experience.
Included Controller Helps You Navigate Your VR Experience
Swipe the touchpad to move to the next or previous item, and tap it to select. Press the home key to return to the Oculus Home Screen, or the back key to return to the previous screen. Rotate the focus adjustment wheel for a clearer image. The controller trigger intensifies first-person POV.
Samsung VR is your go-to app for all the latest 360° video. Watch clips from MLB.com, NowThis 360° and more, and experience the biggest live concerts and events from the UFC and X Games. You can even upload your own videos captured on Gear 360 for your chance to be featured in the library.

How does this Note 8 Edition of the VR Headset differ from the previous Gear VR headset?
This model of Gear VR offers the same great Gear VR experience but extends compatibility to now include Galaxy Note8. The volume adjustment rocker has been removed (you can still adjust volume using the controller or your phone).
How do I set up my Gear VR?
Insert your compatible Samsung phone into the interchangeable USB-C or microUSB connector on front of headset – an audio cue will prompt you to remove your phone and follow on-screen instructions for installing the Oculus app and controller pairing.
Do I need a Facebook login in order to use Gear VR?
No, when setting up your account, you can either connect your Oculus account to your Facebook account or setup a separate account by clicking the link at the bottom under 'Don’t Have Facebook?'
Can I adjust the image to make it sharper?
Use the wheel on the top of the headset to adjust focus. The area inside the headset is also wide enough to allow most users to wear glasses inside of the headset comfortably. Adjusting where the headset sits on your nose can also improve clarity.
Gear VR not for children under 13. Read included health and safety warnings before use and see the official website for more information.

All in all, such a great buy, so glad I did it. Highly recommend!
A tip for those that love watching movies run them through handbrake (a free video program) to get them to a proper size and codec so the phone doesn't get hot!
I would think they would come in a box like mine did. Plus no controller as well and no manual or registration card.
I don't believe that this VR was new. Tried calling and got nowhere. If I don't recieve a new product I will just return it. I will also change this review if this is corrected. This just looks like a horrible Christmas present 📦
There are lots of comments online about the Gear VR working with Models other than the specific ones they mention.
They Are Wrong.
The J7 Pro has a Gyro (verified by installing and using - successfully, a level App).
Simply it does not work, because Samsung did not install the snippet of code in the J7 Pro that recognizes the Gear VR and initiates it's auto App load program.
This piece of code residing in the phone is essential to getting it to load the App, their is no way to do so manually.
Clearly this was a choice Samsung purposely made to make the Gear VR intentionally incompatible with the less expensive J series, because in all other aspects the performance would be sufficient for the Gear VR.
If you have one of the listed Samsung compatible Galaxy's it should work fine, as far as I can see, it will absolutely not work on anything else, because only those phones have the Gear VR start code sequence already built into them.
I also have an Oculus Go which is the virtual equivalent and it works fine.
If you have a listed Samsung phone, the less expensive Gear VR will work for you, if you have anything else it absolutely will not.
I suspect that if you could manually load the Gear VR App that it would work properly on the J7, but Samsung has not made it possible for you to do that.

This is almost unreal experience.i used some chip VR but they don't even come nearly close to this level of immersion.i used Galaxy note 8.
This is awesome.cant describe it.i am gonna connect to all my desktop, laptop,pad with virtual desktop app.the price is high.but I got a sealed pack real product.& I am constantly using it for browsing,seeing movies,360 videos.you can even see normal videos in 180 mode.its not Google cardboard.the characters of vr movie/videos aren't jumping to you with cheap 2 color spec trick.you will be in the movie.worth it.
Plz go to gear VR & Oculus site before buying them.there were a crap load of software+updating to do.it took me more than 8 hours.plus if prob persists desable anti virus.once set it will update automatically.but not the first time.
Delivered in time and well packed, thanks.
