Warning:

● Do not forcefully insert the connector into the Samsung GALAXY Note 4. Doing so may damage the connector.
● Do not twist or bend the Gear VR’s connector when you connect or disconnect the Samsung GALAXY Note 4. Doing so may damage the connector.

 

Note: If the sound is not emitted when you insert the connector into the Samsung GALAXY Note 4, the Gear VR may not have recognised it. Reconnect the devices until you hear the sound.

Warning: Do not walk or drive while wearing the Gear VR. Always be aware of your surroundings while using the Gear VR to avoid injuring yourself or others.

 

Note:

● Wear the Gear VR properly. If you wear the Gear VR tilted to one side, it may cause discomfort.
● When the screen is tilted, adjust the Gear VR until the screen becomes clear.

 

When wearing the Gear VR, please be reminded of the following:

 

●  The Gear VR is compatible only with the Samsung GALAXY Note 4.
●  Factory lens protectors are pre-installed on the Gear VR. Remove the lens protectors before you use the Gear VR so you can see clearly.
●  Keep the lenses clean and protect them from getting scratched. If the lenses get dirty or steam up, clean them with the lens cleaning cloth.
●  The foam cushioning may get dirty if your face is sweating while wearing the Gear VR. Doing so may cause the foam cushioning to deteriorate. Ensure that you keep your face clean and dry when wearing the Gear VR.
●  When you remove the Gear VR from your head, the Samsung GALAXY Note 4's screen locks and the touch pad stops working.
●  When you are not wearing the Gear VR, do not place objects on the proximity sensor inside the Gear VR. Doing so may cause the proximity sensor to remain on and drain the Samsung GALAXY Note 4's battery.
