Gear VR FULL Review!

Gear VR is a 3D virtual reality headset that allows you to experience a virtual reality like never before.  You will need to have a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to use it.

What you have here is actually a full-3D device that you wear.  The only difference between a 3D TV and Virtual reality is that with virtual reality you can watch in 360 degrees, imagine having 100 3D TVs connected together and making a dome around yourself, that’s what VR 3D feels like.  3D TVs just have things popping out while with virtual reality, you are immersed in a virtual world where things seem almost real.

Many of you probably heard of Oculus Rift, which is a virtual reality headset that sells for around $350.   Gear VR is a the red-headed step child of Oculus Rift, a result of collaboration between Samsung and Oculus.  The best part?  Gear VR doesn’t need to be tethered to a PC and all you need is your Note 4 to make it into a full virtual reality headset.

The Gear VR brings a new type of experience you’ve never experienced before.  When I first saw 3D movies at my local theater couple years back, I was amazed at how things popped out.  Well, the Gear VR takes it to another whole level, it’s like you are one of the characters in the movie, nevermind just watching it.

My favorite feature on the Gear VR is the 360 degree experience it brings without having to risk your life.  Imagine being able to see/feel what a hang glider, jet pilot, skydiver feels without actually risking your life, that’s what Gear VR allows you to do.  If you wanted to travel and see the world, you can do that.  Travel to places like Venice, New York, Seoul, and Bangkok without ever leaving your house!  Even if you travel a lot, you can easily get a preview of where you are traveling to.

    • Jay says:

      It is stated in the Dynamic Kat ROM forum, you have to use a different kernel than the stock one to use the Gear VR. People have reported success using the AEL kernel. All of this can be found at xda-developers.com.
