Basically exclusively works with GearVR, there are no other uses for it unless you can write your own code https://hackaday.com/2018/02/27/r...ontroller/

$2 seems like a steal, but GearVR and Cardboard are dying/dead, and thus buying this is likely spending $2 to put something in the landfill. Sucks but IMO this is a no go.

Just bought one, don't need it, I have a Samsung VR, but it's the old micro usb model, which doesn't fit my Galaxy S9, hopefully I find a deal for Samsung Vr that fits Type C

I've never owned the headset or controller. Do I need the GearVR headset to use this or does it pair directly to the phone?

Price is tempting, no doubt but where, why and how this is used?

Maybe I will dig out the old S7 and the Gear headset. Only played with it for awhile because it would make the phone overheat.

I'm not sure that everyone feels like that. I have an old note 5, gear VR and this controller. The only things I do is watch YouTube and/or Netflix. I have no desire to play VR games but I do enjoy watching movies and videos on a giant 150 inch screen in my own private VR theatre room and this hardware works perfect for that. No need to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars if that's all u want and I can def see myself still using this down the road. Anyways, that's why it's a perfect for me and not just a landfill Smilie

I don't get the appeal; Samsung phones don't have enough pixels to get 1080p in each eye, much less the resolution to cover the entire field of view.
But VR porn is GREAT.

I have the same setup and it had it's pros and cons. It was tedious but quality was good. I'm guessing it would be a lot less tedious with the remote. The main problem I ran into is heat, battery life, and you had to remove your phone case. I find my cheapo Oculus Go much more practical but for $2 I'd buy a remote and toss it in a drawer just in case.

Where do you get a Gear VR headset? Is it discontinued?
And does it work with the latest Galaxy phones? 10 series)
