The 2017 model made minor changes to physical dimensions (to "better" hold the S8/S8+), but the 2016 holds and charges both just fine. In fact, unless I look very closely, I can't tell the difference, and my S8+ works perfectly fine in both (I received the 2016 with my Note7, and 2017 with the S8+).

The "significant" difference is that the 2017 model includes the controller, which is arguably essential, and changes the experience quite a bit. However, the controller is available separately as well (currently $35 on Amazon [amazon.com]). Again, in use I can't tell the difference between the 2016 with add-on controller and the 2017 with the included one.

2017 model = $99 (Amazon)
Gear VR Controller ($35) + this deal ($34) = $69 = good deal!

There may be other slight differences that I'm not aware of, but having both, I definitely wouldn't spend more for the 2017 - and I'm definitely someone who likes having the latest and greatest.

Is it the same as this one? https://brickseek.com/walmart-inv...u=54389145

My local walmart has a bunch at $25, just putting it out there in case others have the same deal.

I got one two weeks ago for 25. THey had three more when I left. This is still a good deal considering not many Walmart has this in stock.

I'll wait until the 2017 S8+ version with wireless remote comes down to this price, since Samsung screwed me over for the free one that I should've gotten because I pre-ordered it.

This is pretty much the price at Amazon, it's not a particular deal. And yes, the s8 and s8+ work fine with it, because I know how to use the Google machine.

Agreed. People here will point out that $34 vs. $40 (Amazon price) is significant, but if I were going to buy the controller as well, I'd simplify things and just get both from Amazon, letting go of the extra $6. Of course, I've seen deals with far less savings receive a lot of love here.

Do you really need the Gear VR controller or could I just use any android controller for it?
