Samsung Gear VR R323 2016 Overview

Samsung Gear VR R323 2016 Clove UKSamsung have been pushing the boundaries of affordable consumer VR since the original Gear VR Innovator Editions.

Last year's Gear VR refined this concept into something that could showcase the concepts of VR to a wider audience of Galaxy smartphone owners.

The new 2016 R323 edition has a wider field of view and is compatible with the Galaxy Note7 and future USB Type-C phones, while still being comaptible with the existing range of Note5, S7, S7 Edge, S6, S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.

It's also important to remember that the content library for VR has grown massively in the past couple of years. There are now more games, applications and videos than ever before.

If you own or are planning to purchase one of the compatible Galaxy smartphones, the Gear VR is the ultimate accessory.


With redesigned foam padding around the eyes and a universal nose bridge, the Gear VR has been developed to be a comfortable fit to as many people as possible.

The focus wheel at the top allows you to adjust the VR's output. Users with prescription eyeglasses may be able to put them aside and match the focal length to their own eyesight - if not then contact lenses are recommended.


Once you have locked your smartphone into place via the micro USB or USB Type-C connector, you can control the Gear VR with a combination of the touchpad, back and home buttons.

With the Gear VR correctly placed on your head, the 4-way directional touchpad will sit around your right temple. The back and home buttons are just above this, with a volume rocker in front.

As standard, sound will be played from your smartphone speaker, so for a more immersive VR experience, headphones (not included) are recommended.

Oculus Home

Samsung Gear VR R323 Oculus HomeOculus are the company responsible for making VR related headlines in the tech industry for the last few years. Their standalone VR headset is due to be available in 2016, however for now their imaging expertise and software is at work in the Gear VR.

Oculus Home is an application for your Galaxy smartphone that allows you to access and load a variety of VR content. The app launches automaticlally as soon as the smartphone is placed into the Gear VR (or you are prompted to install it).

The Oculus Home app has been custom designed to be suitable for viewing in a VR environment, providing an immersive, landscape-oriented interface with a 3 dimensional depth of field.

Apps and Content

There are now hundreds of individual apps and games ready to download from the Oculus Store. More are added every week!

Some are free and some are paid, and every one introduces you to a new immersive world.

Games such as Land's End, Eve:Gunjack, VR Karts: Sprint and Adventure Time: Magic Man's Head Games all put you directly in the action in a way never before imagined, as your movements are tracked in a fully realised 360 degree environment.

Settling down at home to watch a movie on Netflix has never been more appealing as you can see a story unfold right in front of your eyes.
