It isn’t the games that really wow me when I ship on the Daydream view VR headset. It isn’t the world that the Google Maps app allow me to visit. It isn’t even the immediate sensation of wonder that VR still in stills me. It’s how comfortable the headset is.
“It looks like wearing a sweatshirt on your face” My coworker coos, and I feel the sudden pressure of sudden pressure of hands on the headset, gently stroking the soft jersey knit fabric that the headset is Wrapped in.
The VR experience, and the Daydream app stores, are virtually identical to the Samsung GearVR store. Which means the menus are all the same, the VR is still a little difficult to get into focus easily, the battery drains super fast, and the phone gets hot enough that you wouldn’t want to put it in your pocket afterwards.
