This version of the Gear VR works perfectly with my Galaxy Note 7 and Galaxy S7 flat. The FOV seems bigger and the headset is more comfortable than the previous version. I highly recommend purchasing this accessory with your Galaxy phone.

After using this HMD for over a month, it has become my go to Netflix in bed device. I used my Note 7 with the USB C connector and ever since the recall I've been using my S7. The games run smooth no matter which device you use. The biggest improvement seems to be with the back button, the touchpad, and the added home button.
The touchpad is smooth and lacks the tacky feeling of the last gen model.
The addition of the home button gives the ability to exit out of any application and return to the Oculus Home dashboard.
Overall this is a much better product than the last generation and is a must buy for all Galaxy device owners.
I love the Samsung Gear VR. I bought the 2015 consumer edition several months ago and play with it every day. When I noticed there was a new dark blue version out for 2016 I wondered if it would be improved enough to warrant buying another one. I am glad that I did. It is slightly larger to better fit over my glasses, it is less prone to fogging up, it focuses in more clearly and it is lighter in weight.
Would be a 5 star if I could just adjust the PD. Not having the right PD gives off a slightly blurry appearance, and then there dust. Dust is your worst enemy with this. Make sure you give your phone and the lenses a good wipe down with a clean cloth before use.
