Gear VR - How do I switch the device holder on my Gear VR with controller (SM-R325)?

Last Update Date : May 09. 2018

Device holder

The USB Type-C device holder is attached to the Gear VR by default. If your mobile device's multipurpose jack is USB Type-C, you can connect the mobile device to the Gear VR. If your mobile device's multipurpose jack is Micro USB, replace the device holder with the Micro USB device holder before connecting your mobile device to the Gear VR.

Note: The provided information refers to Gear VR sold in Canada. The available settings and options may differ for devices sold in other countries.

Presentation of the device holder

Note: The device holder can be switched to allow USB-C and Micro USB compatible smartphones to be used with the Gear VR.
