This would be a five star item if it didn't overheat my phone (Samsung Galaxy S6) EVERY SINGLE TIME.
I purchased this for my 10 year old son's birthday. I'll say the graphics on the games we downloaded are awesome, especially the ocean exploration game. And it was fairly easy to set up and very easy to download games. But you can only play about 10 minutes before you get a message that the phone (or the headset) is overheating and needs to be shut down. I called Samsung tech support and the nice young lady walked me through some steps which involved clearing the phone's cache, starting the phone in safe mode, waiting an hour (!) then restarting in regular mode.
That seemed to work a little bit, because the next time he was able to play for about 20 minutes before it overheated. But after that, it was back to about 10 minutes. Very, very aggravating! Am I supposed to do the cache clearing and waiting an hour for every 10 minutes of play? Plus I don't know if the consistent overheating is damaging the phone. When I disconnect the phone from the headset after the overheating incidents, it does feel very hot to the touch.
Anyway, this is a frustrating problem. If not for this problem, this would be an awesome, outstanding product.

Very pleased, and arrived on time. Awesome VR for the price, my brother has the $800 HTC VIVE VR System, and at 1/10th the price I was shocked at the image quality, smooth movement and how many free or <$10 apps and games. You can also use the GEAR VR for internet browsing and YouTube including 360° videos which may be the coolest thing about this technology. Phone battery does drain quickly (3600mah S7 EDGE lasts ~2hrs) but having the charger plugged into the headset does slow battery drain and I can possibly get ~4hrs before my phone dies. Great purchase!!!
This VR device is very simple. Just a case with two lenses and a remote. But it does make things simple, add ll the needed buttons and a touch pad on it, the provided remote is very simple to use, and you can attach a usb cable to provide energy to your phone and enjoy longer experiences with this type of media. If you have a Samsung Gear360 (2017) camera, then you have to get this VR set to fully get the best experience.
This Gear VR device is not just for VR but also 360 media, augmented reality (AR) media, and 3D media.
One issue for me is that my Galaxy S8 is almost too short for it. You have to be careful putting it in or it won't latch it in place. A bit inconvenient because if you put the phone all the way on the connector, and then push to latch the phone at the other end ... the latch misses the phone cause the phone is too short. You have to push t the phone and latch at the same time. If the phone was 1/4 inch longer ... or the latch was, you wouldnt need to worry about this issue.
Really like having all the controls at my fingertips on the headset and the remote. Its great, but a few issues that keep me from rating a 5.
There are a few interesting apps, but for the most part this is really just a tool for 360 videos and virtual big screen viewing. That's not the disappointing part though. The disappointing part is that even with a Galaxy 8 you will soon discover the phone is overheating your eyeballs. It is just not comfortable.
