This Chinese headset has been all over amazon and I do hear a few people actually saying good things about it so couldn’t stop myself from reviewing it and letting you guys know if this is worth the buy or not. So, without further ado lets get into things.
Before starting off the version that I’m mentioning here is the new modified one with the magnetic trigger.
What I liked about the product
1.The previous version of this headset had a tray which was used to put the phone in the slot, however this one has a snap lid in the front, And the phone is kept pushed in with the help of a sponge and it is a much better way than the tray method used before.
2.You can adjust the lens spacing according to the width of your face and this feature was even present in the previous one so that remains the same her.
3.The added new feature in this was the magnetic trigger that is like the ones that google cardboard has, so you could use it with all of google cardboard apps and that was pretty clever of them to include in the newer version of the VR headset.
4.It has openings on the side which gives a lot of room for ventilation which never happens in most of the headsets, however would talk about that in a bit.
5.The field of view is pretty okay.You could use this like the non cardboard version of Google cardboard.
What I didn’t like about the product
1.It fogs up pretty quick and that is something I was afraid off, however it has done better than other headsets when it comes to this zone. Still the fogging up is a little too quick.
2.I did find it a little clumsy at places and to be honest maybe that was the issue just with my headset and would not be the case with your headset.However, do let me know in the comments section if you already have one and even if you feel the same.
3.At times, you can see the edges of the phone, however that totally depend on the size of the phone as well and the only VR headset where you do not have this problem is the Samsung Gear VR.
I really feel it is good if you just want a slight update from Google Cardboard, but any day I would prefer the Google Cardboard with head straps over this because at least there would be no guilt involved in using it and leaving it somewhere in some corner of my closet.I really do not recommend this to you because it isn’t worth so much as at the end of the day it uses most of the Google Cardboard apps, so I would rather go for the Google Cardboard over this headset.However, if you want a little bit of the premium headset feel you can still go ahead and check it out on Amazon.
