          Comments about Samsung Gear VR 2016 Edition Virtual Realty Smartphone Headset:

          Unable to register my product because the serial number inside the Gear VR or the box appears not to be the right numbers/alphabets. Also, 20mins into the viewing of the VR , it gives a message to let the battery cool down. That can be annoying when you watching a movie or enjoying the scenery.

                  Using it with my phone (Galaxy S6 Edge) is great but I can't use it long before my phone runs hot. (approximately 15-20 minutes). If there is anyway to manage this so that I can use it longer would be great.

                        Samsung did not take into consideration that we that own Samsung Galaxy S7 phone have protective shields for the screens and cases. I bought my husband this for christmas this Samsung gear vr. He was so disappointed because to use the gear vr, he would have to remove the case Cover and the protective glass shield to make connection with the USB connector. I called Samsung and now waiting for instructions to return this item. Very Disappointed!!!

                          Overall enjoyed the VR. Great to get it free as part of S7 purchase. Inserting the phone to VR has been problematic some times. Some times VR mode kicks in and some times it does not. Else this is a good start. Wish the dinosaur video was longer.

I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND TO ANYONE THINKING ABOUT BUYING.
