Samsung Gear VR
One of the best parts about buying a Samsung device is that you can use it with the Gear VR headset. Samsung’s take on virtual reality is quite impressive, and recently it got even better when a modified 2016 edition arrived offering improved field of view, improved built-in controls, and more. So what do you get with the Gear VR? You’ll get access to the Oculus Store, where you can download Gear VR-exclusive titles to enjoy whenever and wherever you’d like. The headset is pretty lightweight too, even if it does look a little big in pictures. You can buy your own Gear VR 2016 headset from Amazon for just $99 or you can opt for the older version for just $69.
Want to try out VR but don’t have $100 lying around? Try a Google Cardboard headset. They’re cheap, easy to use, and you can even make your own out of a few pieces of cardboard.
