VR (Virtual Reality) is a fascinating form of technology that we have been catered to, from a past few years. Being taken virtually to a complete different place while you are still sitting in your home or somewhere else, looked completely alien to all of us a few years back but certainly technology made it possible and now with all big companies rushing in this new form of technology to try their hand and to add different features according to their theories, users can certainly expect a lot to happen in VR headsets.
HTC Vive/Steam VR
If you have already tried your hands on virtual reality and you assume that you have experienced everything, HTC Vive can be a good surprise for you. HTC Vive is one of best VR headsets that delivers the most raw and powerful virtual reality experience that you can ever expect. You can walk around and meet the virtual worlds by using specialised controllers that come packed with the Vive.
Though available at a seemingly very high price of £759, the device won’t appeal to many users, but you have enough bucks with you, this can be an experience that cannot be stated in words.
Sony PlayStation VR
If there are biggies that rule the world of virtual reality, Sony PlayStation VR is definitely one of them. Distinct from its rivals- Oculus rift and HTC vive, the PlayStation VR is available at a much cheaper price but still at the same time but comprising with its quality. Even if it does not outdoes the HTC vive in terms of video and picture quality,it doesn’t remain too behind either.
PSVR uses a single 1080p, 5.7-inch OLED screen, while both Oculus and Vive deliver a 2,160 x 1,200 resolution to each eye. The headset is priced at £349.99.
Samsung Gear VR
The Samsung Gear VR was unveiled alongwith the Galaxy Note 7 and is capable of being used with a number of Samsung Galaxy phones. Samsung gear VR is an attractive headset with a good sleek design and wireless feature. It does has a few cons, like the lens gets misted up and until the lens adjust themselves to the temperature of your face, you will find yourself rubbing lenses again and again. Priced at £100, this Samsung VR headset certainly offers a good fun experience and if you own a Galaxy S6 or S6 edge, Samsung gear VR is highly recommended. Although if you do not,then spending a few extra bucks for a HTC vive or Sony PlayStation VR won’t be wrong.
Oculus Rift is a kind of VR headset that certainly has the capability of impressing you with its first impressions. It is light yet robust and feels comfortable unlike some of the other headsets which need to be adjusted time after time. When compared to HTC view, it certainly can’t get better of it in terms of video quality but oculus rift can be considered if you are a game freak as it can provide you with a gaming experience that you haven’t witnessed before. Also oculus rift doesn’t demand much space and can be used effectively at home. It is available at a price of £499.
Google Daydream View
If you aren’t a virtual reality freak and want to try hands on this new piece of technology, Google Daydream View won’t be a bad choice. Available at a much affordable price and offering good video quality it is certainly for users who aren’t capable of investing for something like HTC view or oculus rift. Although there are a minor bugs that needs to be fixed, like it has a heavy front head and is only compatible with Google Pixel. It is available at a price of $79.99.
