    Gear VR is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FUTURE IS NOW Gear VR is more like a HD 3D immersive movie, at least it is for now and for the most part of the content i've seen available at the moment in the store. It's still new and content is a bit on the light side, but i'm sure that will grow over time. 3D more than virtual reality. Since for now you can not interact as of yet. True virtual reality allows you to interact. This is more passive. Game controller and other accessories are soon to follow. It's still an awesome piece of hardware and software. It can only get better, so enjoy =)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time Experiencing VR I bought these last month and I really like them. I've only had two issues with the goggles. First the right lense is always kinda blurry. I try wiping it with glasses cloth but it only helps a little. My second issue is that my Galaxy s7 overheats super fast while using the goggles.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its a fun toy I picked this up because I can’t control myself and buy all the little cool things that come out for my phone. I was a fan of Google cardboard so I said to myself "well this comes with a head strap so that’s better" but its way different than Google cardboard. The VR draws power from the attached phone and has volume, direction and a select key that allows you to control things on the screen which is very nice. When you pop in the phone for the first time it auto launches the screen to download the Oculus app. You take the phone out, download the app and pick your apps. After that you can download additional apps using the VR. There are a lot of good apps. I’ve only tried the free ones so far. The paid apps seem to be a bit on the pricey side but I may buy one to see if it’s worth it. The unit was comfortable but those of us with big noses may find some discomfort. You need to adjust it on your face just right to get the focus down. I watched an episode of The Office on Netflix using the VR and it was great. It puts you in a virtual home theater setup which will make you feel depressed after you take the unit off and see where you actually are in comparison to where you virtually were. The unit allows for a wired headset to be used but get with the times and go Bluetooth. All in all I’m glad I bought it. It’s a good accessory to my S7 edge.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome pictures This is the best thing I have bought in a long time. It is a must have thing if your phone is compatible with it

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gear VR I got this is part of the free promotion. It's an amazing experience all around. You can't charge your phone while wearing it. And it doesn't have an internal power source. However you can't deny how magnificent virtual reality is until you put something like this on your face. I wish I had access to more apps that had more content on it. At this point in time it's too expensive to buy at 360 camera with 4K resolution. So I don't imagine the everyday customer going out and purchasing these to make videos. It's great to show you what VR is capable of. So all in all it's a great product, but needs improvement.
