Amazon is offering the
Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition Virtual Reality headset (for Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge) for $99.99 shipped (matched at Best Buy). That’s $100 or 50% under the regular price and the best we can find.
Samsung has teamed up with Oculus to offer Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge owners “an unparalleled 3-D 360-degree video-watching or game-playing experience.” Along with a wide selection of 3D content (VR games, experiences, 360 degree videos, apps) available through the Oculus and Samsung store, it ships with the headset itself, a pouch, replacement face foams and a lens cleaning cloth. It has a 4.4/5 star rating from over 100 Amazon customers.
The Galaxy S6/S6 Edge’s amazing AMOLED screen and processor combined with the power of Oculus technology deliver an ultra-fast, ultra-smooth and ultra-immersive experience for you. Together, Oculus and Samsung have pushed the limits of mobile virtual reality technology to make you feel like you are really there, in the experience.
Samsung Gear VR is easy to use with a touchpad control, dedicated back button, and a USB port for supplemental VR accessories and power.
