people always has bad comment on free stuff. I know that 1080p is really bad for the VR thingy but guess that its free so why whine? lets just wait until Samsung releases the PAID VR then lets compare.

It should be at least 5k (4 times the pixels), else the pixels would seem as big as in a 360p phone (if it was a 5k phone, when in VR the pixels would be as small as in a 720p phone, so muuuuch better. Not perfect though, for "perfect" yo need at least 8k ... on a phone)
kevin97, 12 Feb 2016Well...I can't wait to get the Gear VR with my S7. All the reviews I read about it were great,... moreHow can one read reviews when the phone is not yet out? I tend to love Samsung but every flagship they release I get my hopes up with the previews...then it comes out and I end up preferring to stick with my S5 :( hope the same won't happen with s7
Anonymous, 11 Feb 2016Pentile 2.5k? Bleh. I have a Note 4 as my daily driver, so of course I tried one. What a w... moreThere is no other screen on a mobile phone that beats the Note 4 or Note 5 camera so again (Scientific fact from testing). So again stop pretending like you own a Note 4. Use your iPhone and be happy.
kevin97, 12 Feb 2016Well...I can't wait to get the Gear VR with my S7. All the reviews I read about it were great,... moreLol,I don't have an iPhone.
Also good luck with your 360p experience, it would be very ... eye-widening.
As for me I'll wait for the tech to mature, I don't want catch cancer of the eyes by watching pixels all day long :p
kevin97, 11 Feb 2016Who cares, I'm getting one ! advanced congratulations for buying a samsung phone !!!
if you buy it during release you need to shell 800 odd usd .. if you wait for 2 months , you can get it for 500 usd .. if you could wait for further 3 months you can get it for 400 usd

All the reviews I read about it were great, and I want the technology now. Remember, Oculus Rift, the best technology, has even lower resolution per eye. Getting and using a (praised by all reviewers) technology now for free beats the heck of complaining about it like the fox and sour grapes. Of course, in 5 years Apple will probably have it too. See you then :)

4K non-pentile should be minimum. Or if they insist using pentile, 5K is the minimum, else it's a pixelated mess, like using a ViewMaster or something ... garbage.

The minimum should be 4K on a 5 inch screen for VR to be just about acceptable. That is not even considering pentile matrix.
Harmonica, 11 Feb 2016Without free stuffs , samsung cant sell any of its premium phones !!!They can and they do. You know that well.
But they wanna catch ppl on the VR wave. Besides this is valid only on pre-order and limited offer

It's not free for all.
it is the way of market breakethrough...
in economics either first wave is cheap and is accesible to more users and after period is over price levels up.
or product is available for higher price in first period of sale and presale, and after price get lowered fos mass.
Like apple and samsung.....
Apple... first prices of new products are high over sky
pay a fortune if you wanna be first in a row...
6 weeks after .... pay as much as you have in your pocket...35$ yes please
on other side samsung in preorders give lot of accesorise and when thing in no matter of time goes global...they rise prices but not much because product is allready global, now all is on numbers...
Sorry for bad language.
MbP, 11 Feb 2016Really ?
Because they expect to make more money in the end with the content you'll donwnload ... moreSo if Sony, HTC or LG are including a free VR with their phones, you will praise it and that they are doing a good thing, but if its Samsung you make up an excuse that they are doing something stupid?
Why would you even complain if your phone comes with something included and its FREE?
