    Not a bad price but I don't see VR taking off on mobiles. Got the Cardboard and it's cool for the first 10 minutes and when you show a few friends but other than that there's nothing noteworthy yet.

    So do you still need to put a phone in this thing?

    A lesser man may have commented that for R1400 he could get something much better to sit on his face...... Good thing I'm not such a man.....

    So, anyone else gaming or playing with GearVr?

    I have to say I am enjoying the stories more than the games although lands end is quite fun (but also short, so I am pacing myself).

    I feel the same about cardboard, I check if there are any notable apps now and then and i'm not impressed with the new VR demo

    Maybe they can use phones to lighten the load of the pc processes and connect wirelessly , although with current battery technology i don't see this happening anytime soon.
