Oculus Go

 

The Oculus Go is a new headset offers a completely self contained VR experience. It's completely wireless, and it doesn't rely on a phone for its screen.

Decent screen resolution and refresh rate ; Tracking feels accurate ; Plenty of software available at launch ; Motion controller included as standard

Battery life could be better ; No killer app

There’s a very solid foundation here for a great VR experience, with good motion tracking and a decent screen, but the Oculus Go doesn’t quite have itself a killer app at launch.

Oculus Go review: Finally, cheap and easy VR for everyone

 

The Oculus Go is the virtual reality headset we've been waiting for -- not because it's incredibly powerful, but because it's inexpensive and easy to use. You won't need to give up your phone or have a powerful computer to get this up and running. It's...

Comfortable and easy to use ; Inexpensive compared to other VR headsets ; Large library of VR apps ; Remote is comfortable with accurate motion tracking

Still a bit limited by its mobile hardware ; Battery life could be better

Notches, drones, VR vacation spots? Oh you!

Oculus Go hands-on review

 

The Oculus Go is clearly a step forward for accessible, mobile virtual reality.

Completely untethered ; Good value ; Fits comfortably ; Impressive app selection

Doesn’t support 6 degrees of freedom ; Battery is limited

Oculus Go

 

The Oculus Go is an affordable, comfortable standalone virtual reality headset that lets you try out VR without making a big investment in hardware.

Relatively affordable. No phone, PC, or game system required. Cable-free. Crisp, fluid display.

Doesn't track position. Just one motion controller. Underpowered compared with tethered and flagship smartphone-powered headsets. Limited software library.

Bottom Line: The Oculus Go is an affordable, comfortable standalone virtual reality headset that lets you try out VR without making a big investment in hardware.

Oculus Go review: this is the VR headset the world's been waiting for

 

The technology may not be cutting edge but with no wires, a low price and 1000+ games and apps already, Oculus Go is a winner

Decent quality VR on the cheap ; Everything you need in one box with no wires ; Attractive and comfortable headset with excellent built-in speakers ; Numerous fun games and experiences

Basic head tracking only ; Tunnel vision simulation via narrow FOV ; There's lots of stuff to play with but no apparent 'killer app' ; Controller is decidedly basic

Oculus Go, reviewed: The best $199 VR

 

The first standalone VR system has arrived, no phone required. Here's our first week with one.

A completely self-contained, standalone, no-phone-or-PC-necessary VR system. Comfortable design and feel. Sharp-looking display and effective built-in speakers with spatial audio. Hundreds of apps. Oculus setup app works with iOS and Android phones....

Two-hour battery life. It's a sit-down experience (no room tracking). No expandable storage. No kid-safe settings. Lacks multiple account options.

Oculus Go is VR for the masses: A self-contained, standalone virtual reality headset that's portable, affordable and delivers a great experience for the price.

The Oculus Go improves mobile VR, but there’s still a long way to go

 

It still has the basic shortcomings of phone-based VR.

Works without a phone or computer ; Low-key but solid hardware ; Reasonable price

Limited motion tracking ; App ecosystem is still iffy ; Bulky and silly-looking — like every VR headset

The Oculus Go makes improvements to the Gear VR, but its biggest achievement is just making mobile VR content easier to access. It’s a reasonably priced device that doesn’t require having a specific phone, doesn’t force you to clumsily lock that phone...

Oculus Go review: Affordable VR for the masses

 

The Oculus Go is a well-crafted virtual reality headset. It doesn't need a smartphone or gaming PC to run, so it's incredibly affordable and open to

Wireless VR is joyful ; Easy-to-use controller ; User-friendly interface and intuitive navigation ; Affordable pricepoint ; Brilliant design features ; Spatial sound without headphones ; Comfortable to wear

Some issues with motion-sickness ; Battery life is a bit short ; Straight edges of the screen are visible at times ; Some experiences are blocky and underwhelming ; HTC Vive and Oculus Rift are still that much better

The Oculus Go is a well-crafted virtual reality headset. It doesn't need a smartphone or gaming PC to run, so it's incredibly affordable and open to anyone and everyone. The fact it's wireless makes it a joy to use, while the focus on design comfort...

Oculus Go review

 

The virtual reality headset you've been waiting for? Probably not...

Comfortable in short doses ; Easy to setup ; Audio is well done

Lacking for content ; Screen is so-so

A well-made VR headset that’s once again lacking for content

Oculus Go review

 

The headset that will take VR mainstream

Experience is almost as good as Oculus Rift ; Minimal screen-door effect ; Premium device for an affordable price

Sits heavy on the face ; Light comes through the bottom ; Battery-to-charge-time ratio isn’t ideal

Oculus Go marks a new era for VR, one in which anyone can simply slip on a headset and dive into virtual realms. Though not perfect, it offers a comfortable fit, solid build, excellent visuals and the promise of more great content to come. For the...
