Google DayDream View: The New VR Headset

Google has been trying to bring VR technology to mobile phones. One of the most popular trails was the Google Cardboard, which was a disposable VR headset. It aimed at providing VR experience for users at a low cost with simple design. However, it was not that robust, at least not like other fancy VR headsets available in the market of course, such as Samsung Gear and Oculus Rift which we have reviewed in a previous post. In this article, we get to know the new Google VR headset.

Google DayDream ViewAlong with the announcement of the new Pixel Phones, Google has revealed Daydream headset. And of course, Pixel and Pixel XL are among the first mobiles to be supported by Daydream. Daydream is going to provide higher VR experience than its ancestor Cardboard. However, Daydream is still a cheap alternative to the other fancy VR headset, providing high quality experience for Android Nougat users.

DayDream Design

DayDream view has a material design. It also has a latch in front to drop your phone in. For phone support, Pixel and Pixel XL are already DayDream ready. They are your best choice now if you want to try DayDream soon. However, many manufactures such as Samsung, HTC, Xiaomi, LG, Huawei, Alcatel, ZTE and Asus, are producing phones that are ready to use DayDream.

Let's See What Some Have To Say

  Collin is the master. I had a broken iPad mini. Began by getting a quote from Collin. He answered me right away before this business hours even started. I dropped off the broken iPad mini screen and he was finished in about three hours. They called me up and had it ready. Collin was friendly and knows his stuff. I suggest anyone who broke their screen to check them out. "

  My husband and I just got both of our iPhones repaired at the Shirley location. We couldn't be more happy. Our iPhones look and feel brand new!! Both technicians, Ali and Marisol, are wonderful, knowledgeable, professional and caring! Being, that we walked into the store fifteen before eight we were afraid that we would have to leave our iPhones there until tomorrow. "

  My 9 year old dropped his iPad mini shattering the screen and was devastated. I found this place through groupon and immediately purchased a voucher. The carle place store is amazing. Very clean and faster than i had expected. I went in and Nora greeted me. She is courteous and professional. I asked how long it would take and she surprised me by saying less than an hour. "
