5 reviews for Oculus Go

  1. DaegenLok

    First Things First: Separate your expectations comparitively to the PC VR experience.The one thing that this has going for it is the increase in resolution and H. This allows;1) Less Screen-Door Effect (SDE)2) Higher Level of detail due to higher Pixel Density Per Eye.3) Up to 75hrz depending on the app dev to allow a VERY smooth experience, hence lower sickness feeling when turning your head.This is a completely stand-alone system. Setup is straight forward.1) Go to the Android App Store (Play Store) or the comparable iOS Store and download the “Oculus” App.2) Open the App & create your account. Choose your Username that can be anything you don’t mind the public seeing. It can be changed once every 6 months. Your full name will come next.3) After Creation verify your email with the link that was sent to your email address you registered.4) Head in to set up your Oculus Go. Very straight forward. You can use the app to “purchase” apps as well. That way you don’t have to use the Oculus Go to scrounge through apps when you can do it on your phone. You can even go to Oculus’ website as well on the desktop to purchase.At the moment there are already a ton a major media appsI.E. Netflix/Hulu/HBO/Showtime/Etc./Facebook/3D Video & Image SoftwarePlex Media Server also has an amazing app they are working on. It currently is avail as they wanted to push it out real quick. They are going to be updating it quite soon to work even more flawlessly with your home Plex Media Server.ALSO! Bigscreen VR is on here as well. They are staying in contact with the public about their developments and it’s coming along well. If you are interested in utilizing your PC on your Oculus Go this is the App that will allow you to do so. I wish they had some sort of Chrome Remote Desktop App but Bigscreen VR is pretty great. They are currently working on optimzing it. At the moment I believe they have 1080p @30FPS. They are working towards 60FPS and higher resolution I think.Overall, the picture quality is impressive compared to the Rift/Vive/WMR (Lenovo/Dell/etc). This will put the resolution to the Samsung Odyssey and the HTC Vive Pro. Do note that this will not be on the same level as the Odyssey and the Vive Pro. They are hooked directly to the PC with a dedicated GPU pushing high demand 3D gaming. This device is more a fun “3D/VR Experience” but mainly a nice multimedia portable device. This is one of the best public VR experiences avail though. It is completely standalone. Doesn’t heat up anywhere as much as your phone does when you used the Samsung VR HMD for phones. This allows them to gut out useless phone hardware.The experience is smooth and more impressive than I imagined it could have been. I will say that the experiences are closer to mobile games than anything you’ll get for a full PC VR setup. There is a lot of free content.NOTE: There is no MicroSD slot. At the moment there is no support for Micro USB port to read USB Flash Drives but from what I have been told, later software updates will add in support for those. There are several decent Micro USB Flash drives avail. If you want to use a regular size drive when the support is added, check out OTG to USB cords.Overall:I was impressed. I purchased the device knowing the limitations already. If you do this knowing the limitations you shouldn’t be let down. It would be nice to have 6DoFs but this is only 200 with a decent controller. I do with they had a couple little things here and there but at 200 it is essentially an overclocked Galaxy S8 phone + Gear VR. This is by FAR cooler running and by FAR cheaper than a $600 phone + $100 Gear VR HMD adapter + Controller.1x Downfall: Currently the only thing that is slightly disappointing is the lack of battery life. As the devices main use is multimedia (videos/pictures/”experiences”), the device only last around 2-2.5hrs if you are lucky. When most movies are >2hrs this may become quite a problem. I’m planning on purchasing an Anker 15000mAh battery to carry with me. It’s been suggested by Oculus NOT to charge and use it at the same time but heat shouldn’t be bad if you are using it for a movie as opposed to a 3D experience which taxes the system a good bit more.Best Wishes to all.**Edits**5/2/18 – After a tweet by Palmer Luckey showed up, we were shown a simple teardown. He confirmed that there is an 18650 – 2600mAh battery cell. This should be quite interesting. If this is the case, someone could easily come in and make a direct replacement upgarde. After iFixit does this teardown difficulty grading we should know more. 18650s can go up to 3500mAh batteries. This should be interesting when more information comes to light. We might be able to add another 1hr of battery life if this is the case. I will keep this updated as long as people continue to find this review useful.5/3/18 – After a bit of time with it I’ve readjusted my rating to a little more realistic rating. I thoroughly enjoy the device. Setup is easy. From what I hear you can hold the Vol up+down button at the same time and it’ll access some WiFi menu instead of using a phone so you might be able to setup the device without a “new” phone. I am disappointed by the fact that Google is somewhat avoiding this device. There are no Google apps like Google Earth or Google Photos or YouTube. You can access YouTube VR/360 videos through the browser but they are somewhat limiting in the resolution.I will play with this tonight some more, but from what I have read it may already be possible to use a Micro USB flash drive to transfer content. There might be a side-loading trick so when I receive my Micro USB drive I will check it out and post an update!I will continue to update as I learn more!

    I ordered this and pre ordered the Lenovo Mirage Solo to see which I’ll like. I’ll eventually return one and depending on what I like. Originally I had the Gear VR and this Oculus Go is a huge step up from the Gear VR. I couldn’t use the Gear VR more than 10 minutes before I had to put my phone in the freezer to cool it down. This Oculus has no overheating issues whatsoever. So that’s a major plus.The controller: Works everytime, comfortable, and the trigger makes it fun to use.The speakers: Sound much better than expected. It’s clear, has enough bass in it considering their size. It sounds better than expected. I don’t even need to use earbuds (unlike Lenovo’s)Apps: Apps are more pricier than I thought. I’d say on average they’re more expensive than the play or app store. But there’s a ton of free content and apps so you might only end up buying a few apps if you really want.When wearing the headset there’s a bit of a gap around your nose, it doesnt sit as tight against your nose as the Gear VR did. If you look down while wearing it youll see your chest a bit. But i understand why this is, they did this so when youre wearing it, it’ll have ventilation by your eyes so the lens don’t get foggy. My Gear VR i had to take off every minute to clear the lenses as the heat from your eyes would make the lens foggy but this doesn’t do that. The solution to the nose gap was to place the headset just a little bit more down on my nose. It isn’t a deal breaker.I purchased the 64GB version thinking I’ll need the space but there is nowhere that says how much storage you have left which is really weird. I can’t find how much space I’ve already used and what’s left over. I’ve searched all over I can’t find it. That is really odd. I’m sure an update will fix this.As of right now this Oculus Go is a go. For $200-$250 you can’t go wrong. Most likely will end up returning the Lenovo altought it has more functionality with your head movement. (6dof). Lenovo’s battery does last longer, but it is a bit heavier and the controller, oh it’s just horrible. What was google thinking. Oculus claims a 2 hour battery life, I’ve only had it a few days and even when I’m so excited cause i just got it, I still don’t get to use it that much that I go through the entire battery. (your usage may vary). This thing is off my head way before the battery hits 50%. By the time I put it back on I’m already charged at a 100% so battery is no issue.

    Pros: Light weight, easy to use and immersiveI gave this to my wife for Christmas and she absolutely loved it. Cons: The problem came after only two weeks when the headset would not charge or turn on any more. I checked out the ac adapter and USB cable and they were still working so we contacted Oculus customer support. First problem was the fact that there is no phone support what so ever, you must submit an online ticket. So we submitted the ticket and four days later we finally received a response. Their response was have you tried charging the headset. This response would be fine in the context of a phone call but when I wait four days, I expect more than the first step in their troubleshooting tree as a response. An online search shows other have had similar problems. Bottom line is they have poor support and apparently have a quality control problem. I am returning it. Overall Review: I would not recommend this item based on the poor customer support and the fact that it quite working after two weeks.
