Samgsung gear Vr low quality?

#1 Post by Ravenous222 »

So I went and bought myself a new phone on black friday and was pretty stoked to find out it came with a free mail in samsung gear. Awesome! So it comes in today and I set it all up and checked it out. Gotta be honest, it's cool as hell but the video seems just kind of lackluster, like i'm looking through a windowscreen at the actual video. Anyone know a fix for this or if this is just how the graphics are on these things?

I've only tried the Vive but I know this tends to be somewhat common for headsets right now. IIRC the Oculus DK1 was pretty screen-door heavy too. Even the Vive has that but it wasn't too overbearing. Though I remember there was one vr headset being designed almost with... Overscan? On each pixel, so they joined together more continuously

some people put a diffusor layer onto the screen of the headset but that won't help that much. the biggest thing I miss with the gear VR is the awesome headtracking of the Vive (which increases the immersion a LOT).
All in all the gear VR, Google cardboard and such are "ok" to play around with but nowhere near a good VR experience...
I'd love to get a Vive but it's so expensive :<

I'm waiting for the tech to get better before investing some heavy cash into a nice headset for sure.
