While nobody is going to go out of their way to buy a Samsung Smartphone to own the Gear, it does have some potential. For those of you who own the right Samsung, this should be a formidable tool to add to your Virtual Reality arsenal.


Unlike most VR headsets, the Gear actually has its own eco system of apps and things to do. Some of them aren't half bad either.


One of the major selling points of the Gear VR is how easy it is to plug in and play. Just place your Samsung into the headset and have access to all kinds of 360 degree videos and images.



What does the Virtual Porn Website think of the Samsung Gear VR?

In terms of current VR headsets - the Samsung Gear VR forays onto the scene with a modest price tag attached to it. What you get for that price, is acceptable hardware and a fairly simple to use delivery.


When watching our VR Porn videos using the Samsung Gear VR you will definitely be able to appreciate the quality, just not the full 4k experience which is not supported.


In all honesty however, when comparing this headset to the Virtual Reality headset frontrunners - the Oculus and Viva massively outshine the Gear VR. Which is fine, because those two headsets are in another price bracket altogether.


To sum up whether a Samsung Gear VR should be waltzing into your life anytime soon, we'd hinge that bet entirely on whether you own the corresponding Samsung Smartphone.



Pros:

  • Includes volume button, back button and tracking pad for interaction.
  • The user interface is extremely easy to use and looks great!
  • Multiple apps allow you to do a variety of things in Virtual Reality.
  • The headset is wireless and relatively light making it easy on the neck, head and shoulders.

Cons:

  • Does not support 4k videos, the maximum quality is HD 1080p (which is still good, but not as good as our best VR Porn!).
  • Only supports Samsung smartphones. Still a large demographic!
  • The lens can sometimes steam up when using for long periods of time.

Our Score

7.5

Overall

The Samsung Gear VR comes in at the medium level of virtual reality headsets. In its own right, this device stands out from its competition providing you have a Samsung smartphone.

Made by the creators of the Oculus Rift, you can expect great virtual reality with considerable technical support. It doesn't make much of a difference when you really immerse yourself into any VR scene!
