I was scrolling through my facebook wall when I saw a sponsored ad from Kimstore. It’s a VR headset and it’s dirt cheap like P400 so I thought, K why not? I received the VR headset 4 days after placing my order online and here’s what I think.
- Fits 3.5-5.6″ devices so it’s suitable for almost all kinds of smart phones
- Adjustable head strap that gently wraps around your head
- Soft leatherette cushion
- Rotating knobs to adjust viewing distance for viewing comfort
- Adjustable wedge in middle of the headset to adjust for blurriness and focus
What comes in the box?
VR glasses, user manual, cleaning cloth, some promotional brochures, and 2 mini pads.
Setting up the VR headset is fairly easy, just flick the cover open, fit your smartphone in snug and tight. Close. Easy as.
Use the 2 knobs on each side to adjust the viewing distance and the middle knob to prevent double vision.
I was worried at first because I have severe astigmatism so I am almost blind without my glasses.
I realized I won’t need my glasses while wearing the headset and I just need to adjust the knobs and the wedge in the middle for better viewing experience. It’s also super lightweight and I didn’t feel any strain while wearing it.
Watching Virtual Reality Videos
Scion’s VR headset is compatible to Google Cardboard so it works with the thousands of Google Cardboard apps. You can watch any videos in Youtube in VR mode and to activate the setting, just launch the Youtube app, tap the three-dot icon in the upper-right corner of the screen and tap Cardboard.
For more immersive Virtual Reality videos, just type in #360video into Youtube app’s search bar.
Virtual Reality Games and apps
I have a strange obsession of scaring the shit out of myself so I’ve downloaded a bunch of VR horror games in my smartphone to test it out with Scion’s VR headset.
Predictable but still a pretty good app. Show it to a friend who gets scared easily.
It’s like 11:57 where you just sit, look around and wait for shit to happen.
One of the best Android VR apps out there. A must try.
For starters, this is a pretty good device for a cheap price. It’s easy to set up, lightweight and comfortable to use. However, I just find it annoying that I have to take my phone out every time I have to switch to an app or go to the menu but overall, I am pretty satisfied with it.
If you’re looking to buy a cheap VR headset, I recommend to check this one out.
Til next 🙂
