Our headset has many advantages over the Samsung Gear VR:
- Sound is build in, the Samsung requires additional headphones to be attached which means more wires and hassle
- You can use any mobile VR apps including all those available for cardboard, with the samsung you only have access to what is in the Oculus store and their app
- The headset body is manufactured from lightweight foam meaning it's more impact resistant and tougher than the Gear
- We have a much faster and easier way for you to remove and re-attach your phone during use
But perhaps the biggest thing is that you don't need a Samsung phone to use it and can use almost any phone with Opto!
