Today is the day that the true consumer model of the Gear VR, the 3rd iteration of the product, hits shelves and doorsteps after going on pre-sale earlier this month. The Gear VR itself costs $99 and requires Samsung’s Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, or Note 5 to run. Not only is this a way for Oculus to get VR closer to the masses, it gets the masses more interested in their devices. Drew Olanoff takes the new Samsung Gear VR for a spin.

  1. I bought the Samsung, Gear and a Note 5 both big mistakes mine did not work even with talking to a Samsung, expert for an hour and a half so I returned both got a cheap but very good ZTE phone with a 5.7"screen and a similar head set like this one that is just called VR Glasses which has a 120 field of view and headphones attached that adjust and they are awesome far better fitting that the Samsung ones and the video was perfect after I converted them in a program for android phones. So don't believe the hype about the more you pay the better I did get the Samsung headset to work for a little while and I have no idea how it did but the video quality was no better with them and the Note 5 than with the cheap set and my ZTE as a matter of fact it was better and smother running. Sorry Samsung I am a firm believer in your products and have many like a 3D TV and your Best tablet etcetera but this product needs to go back to the development department and get those bugs fixed. For even 100.00 it's just not worth the aggravation.
