The Samsung Gear VR with Controller
The Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus allows you to enjoy 2D, 3D, and 360-degree content by connecting it with your mobile device.
You can also view webpages and your own 360-degree images or videos. Connect other devices, such as the included Gear VR controller or other Bluetooth game controllers, with the mobile device for a more immersive experience.
Included Controller Helps You Navigate Your VR Experience
Swipe the touchpad to move to the next or previous item, and tap it to select. Press the home key to return to the Oculus Home Screen, or the back key to return to the previous screen. Rotate the focus adjustment wheel for a clearer image. The controller trigger intensifies first-person POV.
Samsung VR is your go-to app for all the latest 360° video. Watch clips from MLB.com, NowThis 360° and more, and experience the biggest live concerts and events from the UFC and X Games. You can even upload your own videos captured on Gear 360 for your chance to be featured in the library.

How does this Note 8 Edition of the VR Headset differ from the previous Gear VR headset?
This model of Gear VR offers the same great Gear VR experience but extends compatibility to now include Galaxy Note8. The volume adjustment rocker has been removed (you can still adjust volume using the controller or your phone).
How do I set up my Gear VR?
Insert your compatible Samsung phone into the interchangeable USB-C or microUSB connector on front of headset – an audio cue will prompt you to remove your phone and follow on-screen instructions for installing the Oculus app and controller pairing.
Do I need a Facebook login in order to use Gear VR?
No, when setting up your account, you can either connect your Oculus account to your Facebook account or setup a separate account by clicking the link at the bottom under ‘Don’t Have Facebook?’
Can I adjust the image to make it sharper?
Use the wheel on the top of the headset to adjust focus. The area inside the headset is also wide enough to allow most users to wear glasses inside of the headset comfortably. Adjusting where the headset sits on your nose can also improve clarity.
Gear VR not for children under 13. Read included health and safety warnings before use and see oculus.com/warnings.
