    Stay comfortable and in control

    Take ultimate control of your virtual reality experience with the Gear VR's first ever handheld controller. It means that you don't just visit virtual worlds – you can interact with them too. From exploring cityscapes to fighting epic battles, your experiences will feel more lifelike than ever. Both the controller and the headset are designed to be comfortable too. The controller flows with the shape of your palm, and the headset has an adjustable strap and suede cushioning. So you'll forget they're there at all.

    Immerse yourself in VR

    Dive deep into your virtual reality worlds. Discover how it feels to fly; submerge yourself in an underwater world; or feel the light of a sunrise all around you. The goggles have a super wide view and precise head tracking, so you'll be fully immersed in the action. And you'll be able to see every detail on your phone's AMOLED display. If watching movies is your thing, your Gear VR is your own private cinema – no heads blocking the screen, no rustling sweet wrappers and no having to share the popcorn.

    Keep it fresh and fun

    You won't get bored with the Gear VR. There are thousands of 360 degree videos to choose from, plus over 1500 premium movies, apps and games. And you can choose content from the likes of Warner Bros and CNN. From battling through the latest game, to exploring caves, to hanging out with your friends in a virtual Oculus Room – when you're ready for a change of scene there's always a new adventure to dive into.

    Use it with the latest phones

    Can't get enough of your Galaxy S8, S8 Plus or Note8? Good news. The Gear VR is compatible with them. You can use it with the Galaxy S7, S7 edge, S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+ and Note 5 too. Just pop your phone into the headset and you're good to go.
