Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gift Features are good. Light weight. Comfy to wear. Sound ok, little jumpy/crackly on some games. Makes a great gift!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fun Good build quality. Fantastic fun to use. Only downside is phone overheats quite quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than I expected Lightweight, comfortable to wear, low cost and powered by your mobile phone so this can be used anywhere or plugged in to continually power the phone and VR Gear. The apps are brilliant and there are more available than you will have time to watch. A brilliant invention. A way for those who cannot travel easily or cannot afford to view places they would never have previously been able to experience. A safe way to get the thrill of a roller coaster or dive the Ocean or sky dive or simply view the beautiful sunset from 360 degree angles from thousands of places around the World. Some videos dI'd make me feel slightly queezy like the roller coaster. There are so many free things I haven't even bought any games yet. Tip-Best used on a swivel chair to save twisting around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most incredible VR experience, at an affordable price. This headset is incredible. It creates a virtual world with your own floating house, where you can load games, play music, or watch videos. And somehow, they've simulated surround sound through headphones. If I turn away from a sound, I hear it behind me! Then moving on to the store... Every game costs so little to buy, but amazes you in a different way every time. I'd recommend this to anyone; it's the best VR experience for the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of kit I was slightly dubious as to whether this would be a worthwhile purchase, but upon having and using it, I'd say to anyone with a Samsung handset compatible with the VR to get one. It's not perfect, nothing is, but it's getting better and better all the time. The headset is comfortable, easy to use and set up and is pretty amazing value considering the competition is asking as much as 8 times the price! The content could be better, but as I said, it's improving all the time. As more and more companies get on to VR, more and more content will become available. It's still very very impressive though. There are a lot of additional downloads, so make sure you have sufficient memory available and decent wifi. The only flaw I've found, and it's minor, is the touch pad. It's great for what you really need it for, but it can be a pain when in use with apps, such as when needed to move around! To summarise, it's a truly remarkable piece of kit, well worth the money. Don't hesitate, you'll love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit of tech I've had the Gear VR for a week now and I have to say... wow! As more content becomes available for it I am sure I will use it even more. Love watching Netflix, with headphones on it is really immersion.
