Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus - Review

Check out the new Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus

The Samsung Gear VR Includes:

Fucus Wheel
Touch Pad & Back Button (for built-in navigation)
Mounting Plate (allows you mount your Galaxy Note 4, a possibly other devices in the future)
Bluetooth Functionality
2560x1440 Display (4K)
2.7Ghz Quad Core 805 CPU - LG Snapdragon Processor

With all the great new features of the Samsung GearVR, there are some downsides.  The main downside, seeing as the device has no cables, means you'll have a very limited battery life and limited performance.  The limited performance means you won't be able to run all Oculus ready games, such as Star Citizen and other more demanding games available to Oculus devices.  However, not having any cables means not only will you be able to focus on objects straight in front of you, but you'll be able to see all around you as well, which is an obvious upside for any Oculus device.  If you're willing to sacrifice a little performance, and many games, the Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus may be the route to go.
