In the world of virtual reality there are few big players, but there are some worth keeping an eye on and one of the earliest is Samsung with its Gear VR. Right now you can pick up the latest version of its Gear VR headset which comes with the controller for navigation of content and controlling games and such, for just $92 down from its original price of $129.99. Samsung's latest version of the Gear VR which launched in 2017, is compatible with most of Samsung's more recent smartphones from the last few years, including this year's Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, along with the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, the Galaxy Note 8, and more.
Though Samsung does handle the hardware here, Oculus takes care of the software and the user interface so you'll find plenty of VR content to dive into, ranging from VR video in 360-degrees so you can explore the stuff around you as the video plays to immersive games with exciting stories. As this is powered by your smartphone this is also a mobile VR headset, so you can take it with you pretty much anywhere you want to go. The headset also features controls on the side and top. On the side you can find the touch pad, as well as the home, back, and volume buttons, and on the top you can find a dial for adjusting the focus.
