    Samsung SM-R323NBKAXAR reviews

    Gear VR 2016 Edition Virtual Reality Smartphone Headset is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 179.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product just wish there was more games Bought this to go with my Note 7 and was in love, the images were clear and crisp. After I had to return my Note used it with the S7 edge. The screen was not as good as the Note but was entertained none the less. Scared my friends and family, just wish there was more content in the game store. There are ways to make it work with cardboard( do a search to easily found out how) so you can get more games. I highly advise you to read the reviews and look at the comfort levels of the games. Some games I can play with no problem others make me feel "car-sick",

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gear VR Meant For Note7 Although this VR headset was meant for the Note7, and i had to return my perfectly working Note7 due to the recall, the headset works great. I do wish there was more of a variety in games. When i did turn in the Note7, i got back an S7 Edge, and no matter the VR app, i would always get interruptions in signals or i would get slow reactions or just a slow game. Now i have just an S7, and the biggest issue i have with this phone is that its a smaller screen, which means adjustments have to be made for the S7 to fit into the Gear VR.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from VR 2016 and Note7 got me into VR and I love it A definite step up from the Cardboard but then I have more control of what I can do with the 'touch pad' and 'back and home' buttons. This gizmo put VR within my grasp (financially) and now I am hooked on learning about a whole new field of art and science. I now get to explore the development platforms, the technical specifics of the viewer, and read all about what makes for a good experience as opposed to creating sea sickness. There is so much to learn. I am happy to invest in the learning experience and cope with the initial frustrations. Thank you Samsung.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This came with my S7 Edge bundle This is actually pretty cool and there are lots of free apps. So far I like the Face your Fears app the best. It has this scary clown in it that scared the chit out of me:) The phone is actually installed in the front of the headset after you remove the front cover. You will also need to remove the case you have on your phone before installing it. Homemade videos can also be watched through the headset. It puts you in a movie theater setting with a big screen when watching custom videos. The picture is not as sharp as I thought it would be but it is definitely clear enough and it came free with my S7 Edge. That is the best part:)

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for, and mine was free. Terrible design! You have slide in the correct USB adapter which slides easier than it slides in. 1 out of 5 times it will slide out. Graphics are all pixelated. It is fun for the first day and then all the problems get annoying. The most frustrating part is it takes at least 5 attempts to get it to work. When you open the app, it instructs you to connect the phone, but even being extremely careful, somehow it returns the the home page and you have to disconnect, retap the VR, reconnect again. Very frustrating. I am selling mine on eBay, [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hours of Fun and Exploration. I have the Note 7 with the promo 256Gig card. I ordered the VR a couple of weeks ago and i have to say that this is one of the most innovative technologies to come along in a long time. Every friend that has seen this has said the same thing 'WOW'. I had friends over this sunday for football and I didnt get to look at my phone for 6 hours. They kept passing the VR back and forth and were all amazed. The growing library is great and i can't wait to see the continued product offerings from Oculus. It does get a little warm after an hour or so, so keep the fan on you! I will be purchasing the 360 degree camera from samsung next boating season so i can share our fun times out on the lake with my friends.....

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing experience Although I only recently purchased the Gear VR, I have to say, it's an amazing experience. Friends at work introduced me to Google Cardboard, and, although it was a great initial experience for the price, you are definitely aware that you are looking into a little box versus the experience of true VR, as you get with this device. If there was one thing I would improve, it would be ventilation. I have always had an issue with goggles or the like steaming up to some degree, and this is no exception. It would be nice if there was a small fan or other ventilation to allow air flow. Other than that, it is an exceptional device. I am eager to see what content is in store, and were the Gear VR takes me next!
