Don't do it. It was like $20 a couple of weeks ago. Regardless, don't buy the white one. Get the black one for a few dollars more. Once you go black you'll never go back.

Where did you get the black one for $20, not seeing it anywhere.

The black one wasn't $20. The white one was. That's what I meant when I wrote, "It was like $20 a couple of weeks ago."

Worth noting this is the old-gen model, in case that wasn't apparent.

Thus my post above. It's just not the color. The black ones also have better lenses. These white ones had a more limited FOV and the lenses didn't have a very large sweet spot.

I think I played with both black and white ones, Didn't notice any difference in lenses could you elaborate?

The black one R323 says used and refurbished say connector USB-C but states compatibility with the micro usb phones. Also is this the new version? https://www.a4c.com/product/samsu...-used.html

Do you mean this specific model cause it only officially supports up to the 7(Edge). If so, how well does it work with your 8+?

I've ordered the newer black model headset which is a substantial upgrade imo for $23 on amazon warehouse in the past without even trying. The FOV alone on the newer model is worth it. This is not a good deal imo. As a side note. I picked up the 2017 version with usb c compatibility and controller for $40 brand new on CL. Used on average can be had for $55 on the bay from what i remember.

what is the difference between the Samsung gear VR and the VR developer's edition?
The VR developer edition is the first generation older version that was not really commercially available product primarily targeted for the developer community.

The general public consumer version was called the Gear VR. (White versions).

Then the 2nd generation (black) ones came out with better internals such as lenses and newer design and pads.

Finally the 2017 version of the Gear VR includes the motion controller with even better fitting and (not 100%sure) better lenses.
