Samsung Gear VR INNOVATOR EDITION Description:

Top Customer Review:
This is a great VR headset, plain and simple. It's light years better than Google Cardboard and overall it's better than the Oculus DK2, despite the lack of positional tracking. With that said there is excellent head tracking and it feels amazing, definitely 1:1 as there is no perceptible lag. The 3D effects that you see for the menus and other Oculus apps are very well done and quite convincing, though towards the edges of the lenses where your peripheral vision starts to reside the 3D effect does suffer as you can see objects on screen beginning to split into two images or becoming a little blurry. It's subtle so it shouldn't be distracting by any means but it is noticeable if you're taking the effort to look for it.

ADVANTAGES:
I own a Galaxy S6 Edge (excellent phone) and the curved edges are not noticeable at all with the headset on, which of course is a good thing. So if you're interested in the S6 Edge then rest assured that you don't have to worry about the curved screen somehow interfering with the VR experience.
DISADVANTAGES:
The phone's high 1440p resolution and high PPI count (577) keeps the "screen door" effect down to a tolerable level, but it is still quite noticeable (which is my only gripe with the current version of Gear VR) so don't expect amazing clarity and fine detail.

I was lucky enough to be able to buy the Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition directly from Samsung. It was one of the reasons I bought a Note 4 when they came out. I am not a VR fan boy, and have never used an Oculus VR system of any type. After installing a phone update from Verizon, and an application from Oculus (there are easy to follow directions with the system), I was ready to go.
ADVANTAGES:
Overall, I was completely thrilled with the Gear VR, and the $200 cost if you already have a Note 4 is a no brainer. If you don't have a Note 4 and don't want one, I am not sure it is worth the cost of both, but if you can justify a Note 4 for everyday cell phone use and can afford the $200 for the Gear VR, I would highly recommend it.
DISADVANTAGES:
The phone slides in pretty easy but the downside is that I have to remove my S-Flip cover and use the original back. The phone won't fit properly with the flip cover installed.
