Style Name: Virtual Reality Headset (US Version with Warranty)
I love tech but I haven't been overly excited over it of late. VR is one of those things that is hard to describe. No matter how many reviews of it I read, I just couldn't grasp what the reviewers were trying to tell me. I fear I will be no better but I will give it a good shot for those on the fence about it.

I Pre-ordered mine for Best Buy. I use it with my International, unlocked, Galaxy Note 5, 64GB model. I mention this because after I ordered I saw the phone would require a carrier update, since my phone is carrier free, I wasn't sure if this would be a problem. Its not. My Note 5 detected the Gear VR and installed the needed software. Set up was easy and painless. Some of the things I've done with it.

I took a trip through our solar system in an experience called Titans of Space. It made it feel like you were in a little ship, flying up to each planet and some of their moons. The information panel or hud, gives information on each(Planet,Moons, Stars), then sped you through space to the next planet. I'd look up and see space and stars, turn around in my real sit to see part of my virtual chair, look down I could see the controls, and out the windows more space and whatever planet I was near. I am a sucker for space and this just blew my mind. After the tour of our sun, it started showing other suns in scale so that you could see how much larger it was over our sun. I saw a blue sun in the Orion system, another red sun that was so large, if dropped where our sun is, it would reach close to Saturn. And of course the demo in this part of the tour was to give you a sense of scale. I was completely immersed and it made me see just how much potential this tech has. Something like this for learning and retention beats a text book and teacher lectures any day.

Style Name: Virtual Reality Headset (US Version with Warranty) Verified Purchase
I’ve been waiting for these googles my whole life, but sadly I’m afraid I might have to wait a little longer.

NOTE: I’ve paid for these goggles. They were not a freebie in return for a review (unfortunately). Although if someone wants to send me some free ones they are more than welcome ;)

First some background. I’m a military pilot. I have 20/20 vision and have never required any vision correction. My vision gets tested annually. I also don’t suffer from motion sickness. I only mention this now, not to brag, but it will become pertinent later when I bring up a couple of things I’ve learnt about myself from operating with Night Vision Goggles (NVG’s). I’m also not an optometrist/ophthalmologist so hopefully my opinions are close to correct.
I’m using my goggles with a Galaxy S7 Edge (no screen protector – as instructed by the goggles instructions).

First the good stuff…

- The Oculus app, and store (that come included – and are indeed required) is great. The Oculus app is it’s own ecosystem of apps… and all other apps are launched from WITHIN the Oculus app. It looks professional and sets the tone for a great VR experience. It’s your very first look into the VR world, and as soon as you put the goggles on you know you are in for something special. Oculus have done a great job and Samsung has done well to pair with them.
- A good number of the apps you can access for free, through the Oculus store, are pretty impressive even just simply accessing their main menu screens. They really leverage the VR experience.

MY TIPS:
(1) The download and installation of the REQUIRED Oculus app is fully automatic once you connect your phone. The setup is really easy so don’t stress if you are concerned about a big setup process.

I will first say that this thing has a few major cons:
1. Overheating - It will run on my Galaxy S6 Edge for maybe 10min with video before it overheats. This makes it very tough to enjoy with friends out of the box.
2. Most of the games can not be played because there it does not come with a controller. It is hard to even find the Samsung controller. I have purchased four games that I was excited to play and still have not been able to play them. I have tried the PS4 controller, but it does not work.
3. The sensor that detects if the device is being worn also makes it very tough to let little people watch or use the device. It will shut off when removed and requires the new wearer to press a button. As you are not wearing it, and can't see what the wearer is seeing, it is tough to let them use it.

HOWEVER, This thing is amazing. For the cost of a family of four to see a movie with drinks and a popcorn (wow, that use to be about $10!), you get to experience whole new worlds. Even the pictures of foreign and local places are amazing! I love watching my little ones reach around to touch things that aren't there or watching friends jump while watching horror videos.

Below are some workarounds to the issues above

1. Build a cooling unit. I have some images of what I built for about $20. This fan is dead silent and keeps my phone cooler than it normally is in my pocket (~70'F).
2. Controllers are available, I just haven't ordered one yet. I hear the Moga controllers work well.
3. Put a piece of tape over the sensor. It will then stay on so that the device can be shared with other less capable people.
