    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.

    Compatible with a Range of Devices

    Made for Galaxy

    Place your Galaxy phone into the Gear VR headset to instantly go anywhere. Gear VR is compatible with a range of Galaxy devices, including:

    Samsung Galaxy USB Type-C models: Note8, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+ and Micro USB models: Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy Note5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S6 edge+.

    Galaxy smartphone sold separately. Requires Oculus app download and account.

    Is the Gear VR compatible with Galaxy Active handsets?

    Gear VR is not compatible with Galaxy S6/S7/S8 Active smartphones. Gear VR is compatible with Galaxy Note8, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy Note5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S6 edge+.

    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.

    3.0 out of 5 stars ***BEWARE OF OLDER MODEL & HOW TO SPOT IT***
    By PJM on March 17, 2018
    I purchased the 2107 version of this device (SM-R325) which -- compared with the earlier model -- has been modified by Samsung to work with the Note 8. When the product arrived the text on the box showed that it was compatible with S8/S8+ and earlier only. However, a sticker over the barcode said "Samsung Gear VR w/Controller (2017) - Latest Edition- Note8,..." I assumed Samsung/vendor was just reusing packaging left over from the earlier model. When I tried using it with the Note 8 I could get it to work, but the fit was terrible and inserting/removing the phone was very difficult. After reading the Samsung site I realized I had received the earlier version device. So how to tell? There are two easy ways: 1. The newest model does not have a volume rocker. On the older model the volume rocker is on the right side of the headset immediately in front of the on-device touch pad. 2. The model number is listed in very tiny print behind the removable front cover. If it shows "SM-R324" you have the older model. When you receive your package make sure you get what you've paid for! Returning for replacement.
