This is about what you'd expect in the way of VR phone holders. The price is a little below the "As Seen On TV" VR goggles I recently saw in store, although these don't come with any form of control, which is indeed a drawback. It does list in the listing that this doesn't come with a bluetooth remote, although it would be nice to at least have magnetic control or tap control like the Cardboard V1 and V2 respectively. I was able to use Cardboard designed games by using a roll of adhesive magnet I had laying around from something else, emulating the control of Cardboard, but I would recommend getting a Bluetooth remote with this. I probably will get one sometime. Another drawback when compared to Cardboard is that there's no place for your camera to look out of. This does, however, reduce light entering and distracting you from your screen. That being said, light finds its way right through the white one, so perhaps black is better for that, as well as a bigger phone than my S4 Mini. As far as comfort, this is not the most comfortable thing, it started to hurt my nose a little after a while, but no where near as much as the Cardboard does. Other than that it's not bad though, and the straps adjust quite easily. The build quality does seem really nice, I have to say. The plastic isn't super high end plastic, but it's actually pretty much exactly the plastic you want to use for this application. Very sturdy, but not too brittle. You don't have to baby it, although I wouldn't start beating on it either. The design is overall pretty nice. It allows for lots of adjustments to make it work for you and your phone. The suction cups that mount your phone work quite well, having no issue with my S4 Mini's mildly textured, but nearly smooth back. I imagine if your phone had a matte finish maybe that would be an issue. This thing seems to be able to accommodate a wide range of phones. Also, there are slits in the sides allowing cables to come out for charging and headphones. Overall, I'm quite happy with this VR viewer, my only main criticism being any lack of control, although I feel like a lot of VR viewers are the same way. It is important to note that I received this item for free in exchange for an honest review.
