Why use Gear VR to watch Movies?
Honestly, when I’m alone and want to get into my zone, I usually strap on the Gear VR and launch the Netflix VR app in order to watch my favorite TV series. You can even lie down on your bed and enjoy Virtual Reality as it gets really comfortable.
If you are traveling then you can carry your Gear VR with you and immerse yourself into a Virtual movie without being distracted. However, make sure that you are removing the headset once a while to check your surroundings if you are outdoor and in the case you are low on battery then you might want to first charge your phone before you put it into some use.
Do remember to take breaks while watching movies with your Gear VR as your phone can get heated up and if you are not using a cooling pad then make sure you have enough of those before you decide to invest your time wholeheartedly into a movie.
Watching a movie with your Gear VR can be fun and in the case, you have not yet watched any movie then go ahead and download any of the above apps and get started with watching your favorite movies.
