Test: Gear VR for Galaxy S6

Samsung takes a few steps forward for mobile virtual reality with Gear VR but stumbles while over himself.

My breathing has become deeper, I sweat all over your body and eyes me lightly on the shoulder. I see black smoke. I look at the wall in front of me, I can’t see can’t hurt me. The black smoke I recognize from earlier, there is some sort of supernatural creatures, who are waiting for me to abandon the idea of survival. Not that it actually has exposed me for anything before, but Dreadhalls is a horror game in virtual reality and I don’t trust anyone or anything.

Virtual reality can make you sweaty and cold today. But the technology has a long way to go. Technologies that simulate the sense of touch, higher resolution, much larger field of view and “binaural audio” that focuses on realistic sound recordings are still evolving. Those who want to make themselves do not forget either that the path to the image quality in today’s mobile phones have not been completely painless, and it comes all the time new software which presses the hardware more. Samsung’s latest Gear VR is an updated variant of the we reviewed in February. This model is designed for the Galaxy S6 and comes with better weight balance.

But Gear VR feels like to carry around a pair of goggles with black edge. It is even clearer now than in the model for Galaxy note 4.Screen size limit your field of vision but thanks to the smaller pixels will be everything also significantly sharper. Weight balance is excellent and is now possible to use in further rounds. Gear VR has at times overwhelmed the eyebrows for longer sessions, but this was addressed by simply taking the unit in one or two minutes.

A big plus in the edge is that there is now a USB port on your headset. VR-apps require much of your phone battery tends otherwise to lose charge quickly unless one switches Gear VR via USB. A touch panel that controls the apps and a back button is still on the right side.

Nausea and headaches
Nausea still exists. But that does not mean that Gear VR isn’t worth a purchase. The most important thing is to know what influences the nausea so that you can avoid it by how you act and what settings you’re running with. The major cause of nausea during testing was that the body was standing still while your character in a game or a camera in a video was moving sideways. You turn in the same direction as you travel at a reduced also the nausea.

There are many apps with films made for virtual reality to Gear VR but many of the previous films released to Gear VR has horrible video quality. It does not contribute as much to the nausea that you strain your eyes too much which is lucky, but we sometimes skip any eye strain too.

Materials
When we put on us Samsung’s portable headset for the first time felt the available material mostly as entertainment. Today, the market has matured a bit more but offer is still not enough.

You can see on a news report from Vice where you ushered forward at a demonstration in Washington Square Park. It’s more engaging and emotional than regular news reports but it is easy to get a little queasy. Biggest reason for this is that the camera is moving constantly and that resolution has not reached high enough levels yet. Not only is this video material errors. The resolution 2560 pixel is simply not to bid on a flawless experience. Even when we played up video with the exact resolution, it was difficult to identify items that were farther away. The further away the smaller objects, the smaller the object, the less the pixels of the object.

Despite its shortcomings is wrapped from Vice engaging and there are other films that also surprises. Particularly enchanting is a video where you are at the heart of a private circus. You sit inside a room filled with circus performers. Ultraviga akrobatiker going gets on Rails into the room on top of a giant iron fist, a little lady giggles on your right and a human cat coughs up invisible hair balls. Around you there is always something you miss. It is a great example of what film-makers can do with the technology when it does ripen in future.

 

Competition
From the lenses in a carton box and magnetic swipe to a hard plastic product with touchpanel and a back button. Google Cardboard stands in the ring against Gear VR and although Gear VR in direct comparison is technically superior to Cardboard, there are other options. Several manufacturers betting that create their own headsets with support for Cardboard. This makes apputbudet the decisive, unfortunately Samsung here locked up a little bit in the corner.

Reattach the Galaxy S6 in Gear VR linked its micro USB port automatically in your headset and kicks VR app Oculus. Here both purchase, install and start the apps that are for VR on your phone. The problem is that it is not possible to avoid that the app is started automatically. Even if you force the app to close down is started up automatically when the phone is switched on, Android had so much material on the Play that had to do with VR, it had not done anything. But there is already a plethora of titles, and movies that are customized for the virtual reality on mobile beyond the Oculus and the Samsung app. It is therefore a pity that it is not possible to squeeze in Galaxy S6. For who would have to buy two separate entities that do essentially the same thing?

We tried to unscrew the USB part that prevented the phone got place without be. The screws were small and so hard that they even came out with the smallest chisels.

Experiences and games
Ironically, work Gear VR at its best with the games and what is called the “experiences”. It’s still not a huge variety but is the digital store more well-stocked with apps than before. In the games and experiences that render the graphics themselves come the resolution to its rights. To make sure their characters from above, without adopting the game character’s point of view works smoothly. Unfortunately it is Samsung that puts a spanner in the works for themselves here by, as we mentioned earlier, making it more difficult than necessary to use apps outside their own system.

There is new material, but it is limited by that Gear VR is not for all consumers yet. For those who are looking to experience what is possible in VR first, it might be worth to shell out $200 but for a, it is still difficult to argue.
