Interesting topic for sure =)
from what I noticed during a month of playing with it, trying some test renders & such..well, resolution is too low..whatever way You look, but..it's enough to merge Yourself/sink into that #VR, experience metaverse ..
This tech piece is something mind-blowing/mind-bending for those who are not related with tech too much - for instance I always love to see reaction of my parents or even older people =)
diziness is still there & video content is far from being pleasant (for resolution, bluriness stitching errors, playback or mix reasons).. but static stuff (rendered in OctaneRender) looks great!
=) we stand somewhere (& that's something for sure). Limitations are not bad, but we need to understand them - when that happens (in the industry) we'll come to see more & more Great content coming out!
for Samsung..-I don't know.. (I can't step over myself, but..) I dislike that messy operating system - not a fanBoy of Apple products either (do have some), but this mess on android operating system is too much..
Curious to test things out on something like Zeiss VR One
- at elast mobile OS will be more pleasant (pluss this company are good with optics..- just photo lenses are some of the best in the market..)
for the best experience I do count on that new device Oculus is going to be realeasing in the beginning of next year - from what I've read so far - that should be game changer, but..
..but You need pretty powerfull system to use it =) Guess..some stereo panoramas migh be powered by phone/ tablet/ phablet/ ultraportable - but more serious stuff will require powerfull rig to explore the content (good most of us at least in this forum do have that gear..-question how portable is that?)
Note4 vs S6 - think that later has one more advantage - it heats up less compared to note4 (in my case I have to cool device once in a while as it pops the message that device need too cool down for optimal performance, or something along those lines).
Would love to hear/read some thoughs from others about this, especially from those having both devices =) still trying to gather information around. Talking about it, here's something I've came up latelly (haven't read that yet) : Exclusive Interview With Oculus on The Future of The Samsung Gear VR
