Great Product and Terrific Value
on November 25, 2016
I purchased this from Target (at the time of this review, it was not available through AmazonPrime) after researching VR headsets on various websites. I bought this specific headset -- and recommend it -- for three reasons.
First -- it accommodates most smartphones with an adjustable, spring-loaded clamp. We've used Samsung Galaxies and iPhones. To use your phone with this VR headset, you simply open the door to the headset, center your phone in the clamps, and close the door. DONE! Other VR headsets require specific holders for each brand of phone; this VR headset, however, allows you to swap out phones in seconds.
Second -- it has adjustable straps and adjustable optics; it works for adults and kids, and it fits for those who wear glasses. I will say that it is front heavy and a little tough on the bridge of the nose; I've countered these issues by positioning the headset just a hair higher on my face. Other reviewers have commented that the hinged front door -- on which the phone is secured -- can open if you move forecefully; I've not encountered this problem, and it does not appear (at least from my research) to be a universal issue.
Third -- and most importantly, it has an "action button" (a large silver button on the upper-right-hand side). Though the "action button" is simply a rubber tip that extends to touch the screen, that means this "action button" works with ALL touch screens (compared to other VR headsets that work only with android devices), which is all you need to play VR games/apps that require interaction. Note that, in my research, I haven't found many other VR headsets in this price range that have this universal "action button."
I paid approximately $65 (although I've seen it on sale for as little as $49), and I have purchased a few additional headsets as gifts.
I hope this review was helpful!
