Oh yeah i remember you. Didn't at first, but i recognize the username. You changed your avatar.
I am very hyped for VR. But my first impression wasn't that good.
see, i just bought a Samsung Gear VR. It's a good for the price, but i am still a little disappointed.
- The headset gets uncomfortable after just 10 minuts.
- Can't find the Gear VR oculus home app for my rooted Galaxy S6. (it's not in the play store, and finding an apk proves to be difficult. So be aware if you like rooting)
- Your field of view reduces quite a bit, So you are not fully immersed in the content on screen. This also adds a problem when watching 2d videos on youtube. It actually cuts off all corners and even a little of the sides. (yeah i also use it for 2d. It's nice to lay on the bed watching videos).
- The edges of your field of view are blurry. You will have to turn your head a little to see clearly what's going on to the side in the video. This isn't as big of a problem on 360 videos, because you are ment to turn your head around, but it's still annoying.
In real life you can move your eyes to focus on a thing to the left without having to turn your head. Not with this.
But the things listed above just makes me more excited to try out the Vive and oculus rift.
Gear VR is a cheap alternative to the real deal.
