DEAD. $149

"Innovator Edition" means the "prototype" version.

The actual RELEASE consumer version is coming very soon (Samsung says November) with an announced price of $99.99. If you have an S6, unless you absolutely can't wait, there is no reason to purchase this version when the new final release version works with more phones, is significantly lighter (22%), and has a bunch of tweaks learned from the "innovator/prototype" version at the exact same price.

This deal is just capitalizing on those that aren't aware of the imminent same-price release of the final Gear VR consumer ready version, or are so desperate that they can't wait a few weeks.

CONSUMER VERSION ONLY WORKS ON:
Galaxy Note 5
Galaxy S6
Galaxy S6 Edge
Galaxy 6S Edge+.


If you have a Note 4 this one on sale is your only option.

Is the note4 VR headset the same updated light weight design or did they just lower the price of the earlier heavier model

Thought I read somewhere that the newer design was compatible with note4 bwdik.

Its half price, so its a great price for this headset IMO. Especially if you own a Note 4 and don't plan on upgrading phones soon.

This is for the slightly heavier models which are compatible with the Note 4 or S6/s6 Edge, the newer model will be compatible with the S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge Plus, or Note 5. It will have a switch to change between any of those 4 phones. It is expected to be released in November of this year for $99.

I got in on this for the same price on the Samsung website deal and can confirm that the Netflix update works on the Note 4 version, at the least.

This is so worth the money. I got it last time it hit $100. I mainly use it for watching movies on a "big screen" since I don't have a home theater. I strongly recommend this for anyone even remotely interested in VR or even watching videos in 3D. Although the consumer version is coming out this holiday season, the new Gear VR will not be compatible with the Note 4.

So, if you own a Note 4, this is a no brainer. This is absolutely worth the money.

I bought this from the $99 Samsung deal about a month back for my Note 4. Watching 3d movies is pretty cool with this. That being said, I really haven't used it much. I tried a few games, and even bought a Moga Bluetooth controller for it. I got a little sick from some of the games, like Dreadhalls. That game was spooky as hell in vr though. It really felt like I was exploring dimly lit hallways, waiting for something to jump out.

I would assume this is the standard price for the older version now. So, am I glad I bought this? I think so, even though I haven't used it much. Watching movies in vr on the big screen is awesome. However, I wish the resolution was better, and picture adjustment wheel did a little better job at focusing. Oh, I may have viewed a few adult vr videos. Strictly for research purposes Wink definitely recommend researching that topic.

$100 vr set powered by a phone. Interesting. My guess is it's nifty but not great?
