Anonymous, 25 Sep 2015i dont see ur comparison logic here.... Really? :D Let me break it down for you then. I'm comparing what you can get for $99 from both Samsung and Apple. From Samsung you get the current best mobile VR device when paired with any latest Samsung flagships where you can play cool vr games, watch amazing 360 vr videos including 360 YouTube videos or watch movies and shows like Netflix on a large virtual screen where you can get the max from that 2K Super Amoled screen. And from Apple you get this amazing stylus that they call pencil that can do sketches and writings on one specific iPad (which reminds me an awful lot of the S-pen from Samsung, except it's free!). You get my comparison logic now? :)
This is the third Gear VR made by Samsung. The rest of big company still fall behind Samsung after all these years. Samsung have become an expert at this by now. Samsung path the way to make VR market more mature. I'm pretty sure Apple will follow suit a few years later only after the market had mature enough with high demand just like the phablet and smartwatch.
One year passed, and they doesn't support already the galaxy note 4?!?
Hmm should I sell the old one? Lower price of the new one = cheapier material?
Harmonica, 25 Sep 2015another fearless innovation ;-)Fear for what?
Well it is a first. It is a first VR using high quality display super amoled screens, It is a first since no other brand took this challenge (except google with a totally inferior carton product), it is a first with an inbuilt track pad and a beautiful design. It is a first (non carton product) to be available for $99. It is a first 'genuine' VR product with a fairly good amount of software, movies and games available for all of us to experience VR without having a cerial box attached to your face...
Wow! But for $99 you can get the amazing Apple S-pe.. I mean Pencil! And you can use it to write on your iPads and iPhones.. Um.. Maybe not iPhones.. And it's just for one iPad.. But, but.. eventually, right?? :D
PARAG B, 25 Sep 2015Seriously man , why is there so much hate for samsung on gsmarena.lolBC Shamesung deserves all the hatred.
adlk, 25 Sep 2015samsung launches this thinking "its innovative", but it will lack something. then apple gonna ... moreand then...finally...you will get your brain back and stop living in this fantasy
Honest Observation, 25 Sep 2015ahahahaha very funny.
Can you give me a quote or video where apple claims they did it first ... moresorry my mistake :
samsung will imitate it and will claim they already did it first
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2015dont forget , they will claim they already did it firstahahahaha very funny.
Can you give me a quote or video where apple claims they did it first but it was already done by someone else ?
It should be a 100% copy.
adlk, 25 Sep 2015samsung launches this thinking "its innovative", but it will lack something. then apple gonna ... moreSamsung released it but they don't personally make or design it. They only integrate the design made by Oculus with their phones. It is pretty much 80% Oculus made and 20% Samsung made. This is not innovation. It just a new market. Samsung never said they make the Gear VR or claimed it is their innovation.
Making VR affordable.
Google Carboard is a joke, not comfortable at all.
but is a good kickstart to let more people to experience VR.
eventually, Samsung Gear VR will the purchase for people who have experienced Google cardboard.
