The Gear VR and the Samsung S5

Virtual reality is one of those things that many people have gotten very interested in over the past few years. The technology is more accessible than ever and, because of that, there are a lot of different ways which you can try it out. The Gear VR is a device that was put together with the express purpose of allowing people to experience virtual reality with their mobile devices. At this point in time, the Gear VR is only compatible with certain devices.

This can be a problem for those who still have devices from the previous generation. For example, there are still a number of users who are using one of the many Samsung S5 models that are out on the market. This is because the phones are still some of the best out there and many people still get a lot of life out of them. But, because of the way that the Gear VR is currently set up, only the newest models have it available at the time of writing this blog.

So, what are you supposed to do if you find that this is a problem that you may be encountering on a regular basis? You could upgrade your phone, of course. The most recent Samsung Galaxy S7 models have all of the capabilities necessary to ensure that you can utilize the Gear VR in your own way. While you may not want to upgrade, you may have to if using something like the Gear VR is important to you.

You may also be at a point where you want to wait as well. The fact of the matter is, the Gear VR is always adapting and they are working to make sure that it is compatible with as many devices as possible. Because of that, it may eventually become compatible with the S5 and other older models of the mobile devices. This could be very advantageous to them, because it makes it that much more likely that they are going to be able to sell the Gear VR to more people, thus expanding their base.

There are other models that work with the Samsung Galaxy S5, however. Some of the newer models have the capability to give you that experience that you can only get via a VR device. That being said, if you take a look at the phones and plans that we have to offer at, you will be able to find a wide array of possibilities.

Leave The Weight Of The World Behind With Samsung Gear VR!

Samsung MelbourneAs long as computers have been connecting to each other through cables and wires, people have dreamed of Virtual Reality. Why not? Who doesn’t want to know what it’s like to fly, or be someone else for a little while?

Movies have been predicting the rise of VR since the ‘90s, when films like The Matrix or 1995’s Strange Days set our imaginations on fire with the possibilities. Would it be a new Golden Age or the beginning of the end? We’re about to find out, as Samsung is rolling out their first VR headset, the Samsung Gear VR

Introducing The Samsung Gear VR

The Samsung Gear VR has been a firm fan favorite since its debut in 2014. The website stated “There’s currently no better way to get started with virtual reality.”

If you own a Samsung phone in Melbourne, the Samsung Gear VR is your best best to see what the exciting world of virtual reality is all about.

The premise is simple, especially if you’ve seen any of those ‘90s cyberpunk films. A pair of wraparound shades provides a panoramic view, while high-definition headphones provide a deep 360-degree listening experience. It’s a fully immersive experience.

Entertainment companies are already starting to take advantage of the format to create complete imaginary worlds, full of vibrant colors and otherworldly sounds. 2015’s breakout hit The Martian will be unleashed in a virtual reality edition for the Samsung Gear in 2016, transporting the audience to the dusty red planet instantaneously, saving us the arduous 300 day journey.

It should hopefully be a less distressing experience than 2014’s Oculus, one of the first films to take advantage of the Oculus Rift technology on which the Samsung Gear is based.

The only thing for certain, at this point, is that we’re heading into a strange new world of media, and Samsung is at the vanguard.
