    Do things you've only dreamed of doing. Go places you've never been. Take your gaming to the next level by becoming part of the action. And do it all from the comfort of your favorite chair. Just snap your Samsung Galaxy smartphone* onto the Samsung Gear VR 2016 Edition and escape to a virtual world limited only by imagination. Developed in partnership with virtual reality leader Oculus, Gear VR 2016 is portable, comfortable, and simple to set up.

    Take the next generation of virtual reality with you.
    Samsung Gear VR 2016 is made for your active, mobile lifestyle. The lightweight design makes it portable and comfortable. And because it's completely wireless (you just snap your smartphone into the headset), you can enjoy immersive, 360° content even away from home. Gear VR 2016 even has room for most eyeglasses.

    Powered by Oculus.
    Oculus technology makes virtual reality feel completely natural. No matter which way you look — up, down or around — Gear VR 2016 provides a truly smooth VR experience. The immersive Super AMOLED screen and powerful processor create vivid surroundings and movements so realistic, you'll swear you're part of the action.

    Updated touchpad, new home button, more.
    The redesigned touchpad and home button provide super-easy navigation. Also, to accommodate the new USB Type-C technology on Samsung smartphones like the Galaxy Note7, the Gear VR 2016 features an interchangeable adapter tip for backward and forward compatibility. And new dark colors minimize internal reflection for a truly immersive VR experience.

    Re-imagine your dreams.
    Fantasies become reality as you explore the outer reaches of space or relive scenes from some of your favorite movies in full 360° detail. Drop right into the action of your favorite games, such as Eve's Gunjack (new titles are added constantly). Sit front row center at a sold-out show in a virtual concert hall. Experience Netflix and Hulu like never before on your spectacularly big private screen.

    Purchase movies, TV shows, games.
    Hundreds of TV and film titles are available from Oculus Video. Plus, purchase from a growing assortment of incredible premium games in immersive 3D. And stream more than one million short films and videos from Vimeo.

    Create your own 360° content.
    Create your own dynamic, high-resolution content in true 360° with the Samsung Gear 360 camera (sold separately), and enjoy it over and over with your Samsung Gear VR 2016 Edition headset.

    Samsung Gear VR 2016 Edition is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive I got one as black Friday giveaway promotion when I upgraded to the Samsung S7. I was skeptical at first, thinking that maybe I can get the $100 credit instead. But I'm glad I decided to just keep it. It is very impressive and easily blew away my expectations. We just need more people to get these goggles and join virtual reality the gaming community!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works good but... It is fun and you want to just keep playing videos and games but... it very quickly uses all of your phone storage and you cannot transfer Oculus downloads to external storage. Crazy right? Seems if they want you to spend money on downloads then they would happily support SD card storage.
