iPhone 6s and 6S PLUS impressions. Thumbs up!
on December 23, 2015
So I've been looking for a cardboard replacement for my iPhone 6s. I have a DK2 and was looking for something that would give a pretty good experience for the iPhone, (knowing that it couldn't live up to DK2 experience). With the iPhone and cardboard, the right and left edge of the screen bevel is too noticeable and I was hoping that a higher quality cardboard substitute would fix this. First I purchased a Homido, but it suffered from the exact same problem as well as being really small on the face, and with not great focus abilities. I read a few bad reviews about the noon, so my expectations weren't too high.
Got it yesterday and I have to say for an iPhone 6, it really is quite good. It has these little plastic knobs below the phone that you adjust so the phone sits at the right height, and the white strap is solid and durable looking and is really pretty easy to pull on and off. With the iPhone 6, the black cover DOES fit (a problem with bigger phones) and the focus knob DEFINITELY works and I was able to get sharp focus with no problem. The inability to change the lens pupil distance was not an issue at all. The FOV is very good and unlike every cardboard and the Homido, although you can just barely see the bevel, its almost invisible. The app for the noon is ok, and the tap on the back of the screen to bring up settings (this uses motion sensors on your phone, not a physical button) worked perfectly for me and I don't see what others were complaining about. There is NO physical mag button though, so this could be a problem with other apps that use this. The foam is not that comfortable, but if you use the top strap its not too bad a fit and shouldn't be too big an issue.
All in all not a bad device while we wait for the consumer Oculus or a more expensive iPhone targeted device. if you have an iPhone 6, you will definitely be happier with the noon over the Homido.
i would imagine it would work well with the iPhone 6+ which would completely fix the bevel issue. the black snap on cover would not fit though.
Got an iphone6s Plus for Christmas and it fits perfectly although you can't snap on the cover over the phone. Heavier phone puts weight on the nose and this can cause problems with extended use as the nose pad isn't too thick. Will try to add some adhesive foam tape which should fix the problem.
