Six things you need to know about Samsung's Gear VR Headset

Al Sacco | Sept. 4, 2014
Samsung's Gear VR headset provides a truly unique virtual reality experience that's designed to take advance of the Galaxy Note 4's impressive display resolution. But the headset has a notable Achilles heel: It only works with one device.

The sound quality was also impressive -- though the audio quality was a product of the headphones provided by Samsung. At one point, confetti shot up into the air during the concert. It was probably the most lifelike example of 3-D virtual reality I've ever seen.

My only complaint is that I couldn't seem to get the focus right, so my vision was always a bit blurry. However, it's hard to say if the issue was related to the device or some other factor.

Overall, Gear VR pleasantly surprised me. Both Samsung and Oculus might really be on to something.
