Homdio Grab Review is right in time and soon after the Homido V2 Review because that is when Homido decided to go for the Homido Grab as a simple VR headset which would stand out with the different exotic colors it is available in. Homido Grab reminded me of the Mattel VR headset but it just seems like Homido has improved the quality in comparison to the Mattel ViewMaster VR headset which was mainly targeted towards kids.
The Homido Grab has a more premium look to it in comparison to the Cardboard which looks like a cheap version for VR headset and the Mattel VR headset which would come across as childish to many. Homido Grab is a simple VR headset which would be perfect for watching demos and short clips in VR. Let’s get into the detailed Homido Grab Review.
Weight: 240 grams
FOV: 90 degree
Phone Compatibility: Android and iPhone from 4.5 inches to 5.7 inches.
Apps: Comes with a magnetic Trigger making it compatible with Google Cardboard apps.
What I liked about the Homdio Grab
1. The Homido Grab is a really simple and lightweight VR headset without any head straps. You need to hold it up to your face in order to get into the VR world.
2. It has a secure placement for your phone and does accommodate any phone which has a screen size ranging between 4.5- 5.7 inches making it compatible with most of the android phones and iPhones.
3. Homdio has been doing a great job in making quality VR headsets and the Homido Grab is pretty light in weight, easy to use and at the same time very rigid and firm. It sports a premium quality and does not make you feel like you are holding a cheap Chinese VR headset.
4. The Homdio Grab is compatible with all the Google Cardboard apps and even has a magnetic trigger which would help you in selecting menu items while your phone is inside the VR headset and even assist you with gaming.
5. It gives you a good enough VR experience even without the interpupillary distance settings and the focus settings.
6. It is excellent for kids since they have a lot of app options and since it does not have head straps they would not waste time using this VR headset for long hours of gaming.
What I did not like about the Homido Grab
1. They could have included the interpupillary settings and the focus settings. Although when you look at it as a VR headset that would be just used for a while, you might actually ignore these setbacks.
2. There are no head straps so you can not use this for long hours of gaming.
Content on the Homido Grab
Since it goes well with all the Google Cardboard apps, the Homido Grab has a lot of content and demos that you could experience. It can be one of those VR headsets which you could use to initially understand how the entire VR concept works and how it feels to be gaming inside the VR world.
The content on the official Homido app is ever increasing and with lots of apps and games being released every day, it is sure that VR content is here to stay. The Homido app is expanding its content and its apps. However, this VR headset is more for watching 360-degree videos and having VR experiences.
The Homido Grab is a lightweight VR headset which is mainly designed for demo purposes and to check on the functionality of an app during VR presentations. It is an amazing VR headset to carry along if you have to show some VR content to more than one person as it is more sanitary since it does not cradle your face resulting in a low rate of contamination due to sweat.
The VR headset does have an amazing lens quality and is definitely an upgrade from the Google Cardboard and the childish Mattel ViewMaster VR. It is definitely one of the best VR headsets that you could go for if you want to use it for VR presentations or demo.
Another great use for the Homdio Grab is that it would be a wonderful gift for kids. Due to the absence of the head straps, they would not overuse the headset for gaming and keep the VR exploration moderate. It is a great way to introduce them to the VR world.
However, for the price that it has been offered, I still think that the Merge VR is a way better choice. Merge VR has a great price/feature balance, hence before buying this VR headset do check out the Merge VR goggles Review. If you have a Samsung phone then there is no reason that you should buy the Samsung Gear VR headset which comes under the same price.
