  1. […] There are still lots of differences between smartphone headsets, we use faux-leather for wearable comfort, 120° lenses (FOV). Just read our Virtual Reality comparison chart. […]

    Comparison isn’t very good though is it considering your website is about this…

      Different headsets are great for different things. We are proud of our headset as a fantastic choice for a lower price point phone powered device. We also think the Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear are amazing too, we’re not going to lie about that! 🙂
