Connecting your Samsung phone
Connect your Samsung phone to the Gear VR headset:
Note: Do not forcefully insert the connector into your phone as this may damage the connector. Improper installation may also scratch your phone.
Note: If the phone is not securely locked, it may separate from the Gear VR and become damaged. Do not twist or bend the Gear VR’s connector when you connect or disconnect the phone. Doing so may damage the connector.
Note: If you the phone is tilted to one side when it is inserted, it may cause discomfort. In this case, the phone's screen will not be aligned properly to the lenses.
Important: 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. Do not leave the Gear VR in a direct sunlight. Exposure to a direct sunlight can damage the Gear VR and the connected phone.
