There are a ton of positives when it comes to this headset. It is completely premade right put of the box, so there's absolutely no assembly required. It can fit just about any smartphone, but I tried it with a Samsung Galaxy S5. You put the phone into the headset, slip the straps onto your head, and you're ready to start! Compared to cardboard kits this one really is super easy to get started with.
The headset includes controls to adjust the distance of the lenses and the closeness of the phone which makes it easy to get the best possible VR experience. The headset works well and is very easy to use, and you can even adjust the straps while wearing it, which makes it easy to fit. But there are some issues I had with it.
This headset contains no suggestions for what to actually use the headset for. No apps, no videos, nothing. For those wondering, 360 degree videos on YouTube are a great test, and for apps you should try InMind and InCell, both great games.
The bigger issue I had with this headset was the fact that I found it surprisingly uncomfortable to wear, and very heavy on my face. This headset is heavy enough that I actually found it distracting. The uncomfortable straps and the feeling of the headset pulling my face down made it much harder to get immersed in anything I was doing.
-Easy to use
-No apps suggested to use with
Overall, this headset does a lot of things right, but I can't say I recommend it any more than the cardboard VR kits. Both have their strengths, but in this case I really found the weight of this kit to be its biggest flaw.
