Engadget Review

Samsung's latest Gear VR is a joy to wear, and it's even more immersive than before. It's an easy buy if you own a Samsung phone, but be aware that Google's Daydream VR platform is on the horizon.

Pros
  • Comfortable and easy to wear
  • Larger field of view than before
  • Large library of VR content
  • Inexpensive
Cons
  • Only works with recent Samsung phones
  • Could quickly be overshadowed by Android Daydream headsets
