Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, infinite possibilities and realms! Using with my Note 9 with gear VR, u need the Note 9 Type C adapter for it to work. It is awesome watching a movie or netflicks on a huge screen in your own VR theater. Going to live events, in VR like private concerts and comedy shows and sports games with other VR participants mixed in with real audience is crazy mind blowing, the future is now. Gaming in Samsung VR is awesome. Everyone needs to get a gear VR to use with there phones! Note 9 works great in the Gear VR especially with the 4000mah battery and beautiful display.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time VR User I have to say that I went Gear VR because of my reputation of being a Samsung user. TV, tablets, washer and dryer. The quality of the device is excellent. Its weight is not a burden on the nose or neck. I do wear glasses and was able to wear them with the Gear VR or without with the Gear VR. The price I got it at why I went with the Gear VR plus I did not want to be tethered to a PC. I have to say that at this time, I have no regrets buying the Gear VR and moving into the Virtual Reality. Thank you Samsung for a well made product and at the right price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Incredible Really amazing and fun. Like having an entire gaming console on your face and more. See the world without leaving your home and go to the theme park and not pay to get on a roller coaster. Only lost one star because after a couple hours it hurts your eyes a bit. Really amazing technology and will be using it for a long time to come.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from a nightmare for something they gave away free Got one of these things free with the purchase of my S8, samsung had only sent out one display model at the time and i had received a card to mail in. The card got me a gear VR which has a Micro USB port, which is not compatible with the S8. theres only one for sale but there are 3 models at least and dont even try to explain this to samsung, most of the people i talked to didnt know what a USB C was. Buy at your own risk or it may be an ineffective paperweight
