The Gear VR is compatible with certain Samsung phones - the Galaxy S6 and S7 lineups, as well as the Note 4 and Note 5. The Gear VR uses the phone as the display, speaker, and brains - the headset itself is just a head-mount with lenses and controls on the side.

    "I think this is a decent solution for the topic, however it is slightly inaccurate. It doesn't satisfy the term Virzoom, although someone who found this solution probably wouldn't be too mad and may even buy it!"

    "It is not compatible with my Samsung J3 Emerge BUT I can still do "Cardboard" videos with it and I downloaded some games that did not require the touch pad as it does not connect or download software or have power because of the phone. I will upgrade to the required S6 phone or higher soon to enjoy the rest of the features but for someone that has never experienced VR at all, I'm enjoying it. You can go to youtube and watch videos and click the 3 dots in upper right corner and choose "View in cardboard" and have some free fun. They do have some full length 3D animated movies from Disney/Pixar etc that look great in the headset. I've only been playing with it for 24 hours and can't even do everthing and I'm HOOKED. This thing has amazing educational value if you homeschool or self learn. Last night I went to space, swam in the coral reef, rode rollercoaster, flew in a spitfire, visited a cave and much, much more. People are never going to see me again. :) (For the record I am a middle aged woman and not a "gamer" but I did play a couple of games in this thing and it's awesome.) *I did have a little motion sickness at first but it passed after a bit. For $14, GET ONE. "

    "I picked up a Samsung Gear VR for only $11.98 on Amazon and for that price it does some really awesome things. I'd say its one of the best budget-friendly virtual reality gadgets you can buy if you own a Galaxy S6 or S7 phone. Its also compatible with Note 4 and 5."

    "This device did a decent job in assisting me with my problems in finding a good set of VR goggles for a Samsung product. Compared to other products, I would describe the goggles as being well-refined. Just ensure you definitely have a phone that's compatible with them first."

    "These Samsung Gear VR headsets are wonderful for playing games, I would go as far as saying the best! I use these daily for game play with my S7. They fit comfortably over my glasses and are so lightweight that I almost forget that I am wearing them. "

    "Yes to Samsung for making this product. I love playing games with this console. It works nicely and the screen is extremely clear. It will make you feel as though it is indeed real."

    "Honestly my nerdy friend has this he says its great i used it a couple of times and its awesome for those who love to exaggerate with technology a little bit. I love the fact that their not expensive what so ever and they do such an awesome job. "

    "The Samsung Gear VR is the best Samsung Gear out there. It works well with several top end Samsung mobile devices. The headset isn't too heavy and is pretty comfortable."

    "They do not support the PS4 controller on s7 at all. There was a workaround, but they deliberately patched it. This is clearly a power play, because of sony's new VR device - at least in my opinion"

    "Samsung Gear VR (2015) is an easy to use touch pad designed to be light and easy to watch and play. It offers virtual reality with its wide view, perfect head tracking and low latency. "
