However, be careful with one issue. My phone's (S8) WiFi connection kept cutting out when I was watching videos, which caused the content to stop. After looking into this for a while, I found out that the Bluetooth controller clashes with the phone's WiFi signal, because I had a router which was broadcasting on 2.4GHz (the same frequency as Bluetooth). Searching around for a solution to this, I found that a lot of people have this issue and the only way around this is to use a router's 5Ghz band. My router didn't have a 5GHz band so I ended up having to buy a link router which allowed me to broadcast on 5GHz. There is no other way around this as I can see so if you've got a 2.4GHz only router, beware that this might cause you headaches as you can't really use the headset with any online content if you end up with this problem.
One thing i would advise is to use a tripod of selfie stick as if you hold the camera directly your hand will be in view, well thats what i could see when i tested the camera on my iphone
So far seems ok... will fully test once i have a memory card and update !
Played with that for few hours and it juiced my galaxy s9+ to half. So not bad considering non stop video and sound playing.
As for connecting your phone to it, due to the VR headset being made of plastic you need to be very careful as it is very easy to break and the times that I've used it so far have broken off the phone connector each time trying to insert the phone into the unit.
The controller that comes bundled with the unit is a law unto itself, I guess it's designed to be similar to a (virtual) laser pointer the theory is it works by blue tooth connection to your phone, I spent 20mins last night trying to get it to work and despite the phone saying that the 2 of them were connected the controller begged to differ. At this point I should mention that the controller is essential for the usability of the headset, there's no ideal way to operate the headset without it. When the controller does decide to work it seems determined to not respond to your commands and the pointer seems to point everywhere but where you want it to go.
So far, the limited use I've managed to have, has not been brilliant. Watched a music video on youtube and as much as it's impressive being a larger video, the sound hasn't been great and had great problems with adjusting the cinema screen that you view it on as it was off-centre. I also watched a rollercoaster video, which, I assume, is supposed to mimic you actually riding on the rollercoaster. Firstly, the rollercoaster itself was rather tame and your position is rather weird as you seem to be sitting above the passengers and when I decided to look around, I looked down and could see the base of the camera that was used to film it, if there was any VR illusions of being there they were well and truly shattered after that. Admittedly I have only skimmed the surface in terms of apps etc, due to the problems with setting up the headset, so I would like to think there are more thrilling experiences to be had.
In summary, if you have infinite amounts of patience and have measured expectations of what you are getting for your money then you may like this headset. The only saving grace so far is that I paid £70.00 rather than the original price of £100.
