A few days ago we were speaking to you in our blog about the best devices, which work connected to a computer, to enjoy the virtual reality, between them we were standing out the Oculus Rift and the HTC It Lives.

Today we continue speaking about devices VR, but this time of the HMD for smartphones, that is to say those glasses that only need a mobile phone to be able to submerge us in virtual worlds.

The principal difference between both possibilities is the quality, because only have possessed the processor and the graphical card of a telephone, the visualization of the applications is necessarily minor whom we can enjoy connected to a PC of high performance. Nevertheless, it has the advantage of being an option much cheaper and easy to use, and in addition without unpleasant cables that obstruct our movements.

For this new entry we have done a selection of the glasses for Smartphone more distinguished from the market 2017:

Samsung Gear

f we speak about glasses VR we have to underline Samsung, one of the companies that more is betting for the sector of the virtual reality. According to information of Super Byline Research Report, the Korean company sold in 2016 2,3 millions of units of his Gear VR, advancing all his competitors, though far from the indisputable leader of the sector: the Google Cardboard, which managed to distribute the amazing number of 90 million units.

 Samsung Gear developed in collaboration with Oculus, offers a field of vision of 101 degrees, accelerator, gyroscope and sensor of proximity. His latency of movement to photon is lower than 20 ms. The hull is comfortable enough in spite of his size and his weight of 345 grams and, in addition, it is possible to choose between several colors. In it adds one of the best options of the market.

The trick, like you can imagined, is that the Gear only work with devices Samsung.

Recently, the company has presented an update of the device that includes wireless control. You can know all the details in the article that we dedicate to the Samsung Gear VR [2017].

The starting price to the market in The United States (foreseen for April 21, 2017) is 170$, with the option of control included.

Google Daydream View

Google’s great bet in the world of the devices #RV are these elegant glasses compatible with any telephone Android. It offers a simple and simple system to experiment with 360 games, movies and panoramic photos.

As the new Gear of Samsung also it incorporates a control that improves the experience of navigation.

Trough  Google Play  it is possible to unload enough applications and games, included Netflix VR or HBC VR.

In regard to Samsung it has two important advantages: the comfort, on having had a minor weight, and the price: 80 €.


VR Box v2.0

For those that do not want to do an important disbursement or which smartphone is not compatible with any of two previous models, for example the users of iPhone, we include an option low cost compatible so much with iOs as with Android.

Attending to the opinions of the users the biggest disadvantages that the VR Box is that they turn out to be uncomfortable when they are used during a long time, specially in the zone of support on the nose. In addition, to the being a valid device for diverse models of telephone the quality of the vision changes notably from a few telephones to others, being the level of immersion fewer dip that with the Gear or with the Google Daydream.


But the great advantage is his price. In these moments, to date of April, 2017, we have seen numerous webs where they can be acquired for less than 10 €, which places them in a very profitable position for all those that want to enter in RV without the pocket scratching itself. Undoubtedly, a good relation quality – price.

Microsoft Hololens

In spite of not being a device VR, it does not work with smartphone either, we want to mention also the product of Microsoft focused on Mixed Reality, point of convergence, according to numerous analysts, between virtual reality and augmented reality in a not very distant future.

Microsoft HoloLens is the first holographic autonomous device, which allows to interact with digital content and holograms superposed in our real world. The device is a combination of “glasses to ski ” with a great diadem that possesses holographic translucent lenses and two engines of light HD 16:19.

Now, there comes the part in which we begin to tremble: its cost on the market is of 3.000$, therefore it is very far from a hollow being able to be done on the market of the users, though undoubtedly soon we will see improvements in this point.
