Samsung Mobile Gear VR
The Samsung Mobile Gear VR works with certain Samsung phones. You snap your Samsung smartphone to the Gear VR and watch movies or play games.
What Will I Watch On Samsung Gear VR?
Samsung Milk VR brings 360 degree virtual reality to your Samsung smartphone every month including documentaries, music concerts, exotic destinations, celebrity lives and much more.
The Oculus Video app offers full movies and TV shows to buy.
Vimeo offers over 1 million videos to watch.
Twitch is a community for gamers with videos for you to watch and games to play with the Gear VR.
You can watch Netflix in a whole new way. The Netflix app on the Gear VR brings your home theater experience anywhere you are.
There is also a virtual world for you to socialize with friends.
Using the Gear VR
My first concern when I heard about the Gear VR was comfort. Will it be comfortable on my face. You can see from the photo below that the part that touches your face is soft and cushy and is comfortable.
It weighs just a bit over 11 oz, so it won’t feel heavy on your face. If you wear glasses, the Gear VR fits over most glasses too.
Free Samsung Gear VR With Select Samsung Phone Purchase
Through June 18, 2016, when you purchase (or lease AND activate) certain Samsung smartphone, you receive the Samsung Gear VR + $50 worth of virtual reality content at Best Buy.
