Google Daydream. CAN’T use it outside of Google’s Daydream VR app. The free “games” and “immersive” content is such low quality (not to mention that there’s only a handful of apps), the recalibration is constantly off, the sides peek through (I have a Pixel 2 XL. Cant imagine it on an iPhone or something smaller), even if you bite on the paid “games” they’re like $8.99 and the “demos” don’t make it a confident purchase. It was cool for an hour, then I burnt through all of its content. Could’ve done this with cardboard. Oh, the fit is very uncomfortable too. The nose hole gapes light, so I had to temporarily pad it with foam. Very uncomfortable with glasses. Videos are always constantly losing focus because the center of the lens have to be right at your eye-level, but the headset isn’t very stable. I’ve worn it tight, loose, and padded; viewing experience was still awful.
It works well with our Google Pixel 2xl phones. We tried another headset that required placement of the phone in a tray. This headset makes it easy by allowing you to simply place your phone into the headset and strap it down. It also has a remote that allows for easy app navigation which is something other headsets do not include. The headset is also very comfortable to wear, and it is easy to adjust for all ages.

This is much better quality than other VR headsets I have tried. It is also the only one I could find that actually worked with my Pixel XL 3. Most other headsets I could find were only able to be used with a screen size up to 6″. It is comfortable and easy to adjust. I only wish that there was a cover for the lenses on the inside of the headset (where you would look through them) so that they don’t pickup dust and scratches.

Alas, Daydream is going away. I got one so that I could use it to test WebVR while I still had the chance, but unfortunately it tends to have annoying calibration issues. Also, a phone screen can still have very distracting smudges under the Daydream lenses, even if it’s fairly clean by day-to-day use standards.

It said on NUMEROUS websites, including Google’s, and website it was advertised on. That it supported my phone. But when I received it. It obviously didn’t work. Than wanted me to download all these different apps to make it work. When it should just work without having to download content that the phone warns you not to download
Super bad picture quality

Great product, but totally useless if the seller doesn’t ship you all the parts. Replacement remotes for the google daydream headset DO NOT EXIST and when starting google daydream (the app designed for the goggles) you are required to turn on the remote to boot into the app. In essence, if you don’t receive your remote, the headset will not turn on. AND THAT’S NOT ALL, if you decide to NOT to the use google daydream app, the sensor in the headset will open a pop up prompting you to download it EVERY time you put your phone into the headset.In summary, FRICK YOU AMAZON, and FRICK YOU GOOGLE.
this headset was very uncomfortable, the picture quality was terrible and I got a headache within minutes of use. I think the headache is a unique issue for most people but the other complaints made this product useless.
