Samsung’s Gear VR headset is on offer at O2 right now for an unbeatable price
VR is no longer the plaything of the rich and successful thanks to the Samsung Gear VR. This smartphone-ready headset is always wonderfully cheap, but O2 is pulling out all the stops to bring you the cheapest VR experience maybe ever: £20 for a Gear VR headset.
The Samsung Gear VR headset itself is really just a pair of goggles with two very strong VR lenses inside. There’s no cables, no technology to stress over; all you need is a smartphone, and enough room to swing a cat.
Of course, I’d be remiss to ignore the fact that you’ll need a Samsung Galaxy smartphone in order to use the Samsung Gear VR headset. You can find a full list of compatible Samsung phones on the relevant support page. If you don’t qualify, I’m afraid you’re out of luck.

If you own one of the compatible Samsung Galaxy phones, however, you’ll just need to slot it into the housing at the front of the headset to begin your Gear VR experience. The headset has touch controls built in so you can navigate menus without too much hassle: making use of the Oculus app, store and user interface, there’s a respectable amount of content to explore.
Usually, the Samsung Gear VR costs £60. Provided you have a Samsung phone, and enough of an interest in VR to want to give it a try, £20 is honestly the least you can expect to pay for a real VR experience. This deal runs until stock runs out, so the sooner you take the plunge, the better.
