Google Daydream View (2017)

 

Google Daydream View 2 (2017) review: Price, release date and compatible phones for Google second edition virtual reality headset

Comfortable and compact ; Google's wealth of content ; Works with more phones now

Slightly fuzzy picture ; Pricier than before ; Not much of a jump forward

A comfortable, easy-to-use headset – but not a huge leap forward.

Google Daydream View review: mobile VR done mostly right

 

Nearly a year ago, I wrote about a then-new product called the Samsung Gear VR — a mobile phone-powered headset that promised cheap, mainstream virtual reality, but it delivered something I wasn't...

Clever, ergonomic hardware design ; Versatile, convenient controller ; Lots of potential for Android integration

Only compatible with Google Pixel at launch ; Finding the best fit takes time ; Still waiting for killer apps

Google Daydream View

 

Google's Daydream View VR headset is a comfortable gateway to virtual worlds—there just aren't many to visit yet.

More comfortable than other mobile VR headsets. Included remote control is easy to use. Affordable.

Very little hardware and software support so far.

Daydream is the best mobile-phone VR platform so far. But so far, it's a nearly empty platform. It's hard to enjoy a party when nobody else is dancing. And no mobile VR platform holds a candle to PC-based systems like the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, or...

Google Daydream View review: Google’s Pixel-perfect Gear VR rival gets a 2017 facelift

 

Google's Daydream View is the perfect accessory for your new Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL, and it's seen a 2017 update

Soft, comfy design

Not particularly secure on your face ; Right now there's a severe lack of 'must-have' apps

In its defence, though, the Daydream VR platform is in its infancy right now, and in a couple of months its app support will be vastly superior to what's on offer right now, so watch this space: in 2017, Daydream VR could well become the mobile headset...

Google Daydream View review

 

For use with its new Pixel phones (and more soon), we tried out Google's first Daydream VR headset. Here's our Google Daydream View review.

You'll need a Daydream VR compatible phone but the Daydream View VR headset is certainly an accomplished device. Its attractive style is complimented by a comfortable fit, although an over the top strap might be an oversight for more energetic tasks....

Google Daydream View review

 

Cardboard is cheap. Gear VR only works with Samsung phones. The pricy Oculus Rift ( £400.00 at Amazon.co.uk ) and HTC Vive ( £649.99 at Amazon.co.uk ) require an expensive gaming PC and loads of setup, and the PlayStation VR ( £259.00 at Amazon.co.uk )...

Affordable, portable and easy to set up. The bundled motion controller is convenient and easy to use. Exclusive YouTube, Google Street View and Google Photos feel like potential killer apps.

It only works with Google Pixel and Moto Z for now (more on the way). The headset is front-heavy and frequently needs adjusting. There's limited app selection at launch and you can't walk around or grab things in VR.

The Daydream View is the simplest, most affordable way to turn a phone into an immersive VR headset.

Daydream View review: Google's 2017 version is a modest improvement

 

Google Daydream View is more than a mere accessory, and now it's getting a facelift for 2017

With the Cardboard, Google took a knowingly anti-tech approach to VR, and this attitude continues with a headset that feels more like an item of clothing than a holster for expensive hardware. It works. The Daydream View makes pivoting into virtual...

Google Daydream View (2016) review

  (Rating Hidden)

The first iteration of Google's VR headset signalled it's involved in the world of virtual reality, and although it's been superseded, the original is still available with decent discounts on offer. Is it still worth buying, and how does it compare...

Google Daydream View Review

 

The Daydream View is an excellent mobile VR headset that has a wider set of compatible phones than our top pick

Highly immersive, easy to setup

Not terribly interactive, smaller set of compatible phones

The is a solid, all-around headset that provides a great introduction to VR without a huge investment. It's very easy to use and will work with the flagship phones for most major manufacturers. It's definitely a product to consider.

Google Daydream View VR review: The headset for Google Pixel users

 

Google's Daydream View VR headset is now available in India. The Daydream View VR headset was launched along with the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones in October last year. The Daydream View VR headset is priced at Rs 6,999 and available on Flipkart.

My overall experience with the Daydream View VR was on the fun side. But virtual reality is still the kind of fun that leaves me with a dull headache, after using it for under 15 minutes. Oh, and those 15 minutes felt like half an hour. When it comes...
