If you own one of Samsung's flagship line of smartphones (Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ or the revised Galaxy Note 7 Fandom Edition), then the Gear VR is the best way to dive into some decent quality Virtual Reality experiences without spending a huge amount of money for the likes of an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive and a compatible PC (although they deliver much better quality with more content to choose from). For that of course you will need a Gear VR headset.

Samsung-Gear-VR-2016-1

The 2017 version of the Gear VR headset with comes with a 3DOF controller is currently being sold with a discount of $32 and costing just $98 from its original price of $129 for the headset-controller bundle. The new Gear VR headset brings some much needed upgrade such as a larger Field of View of 101 degree compared to the 90 degree FoV of the previous versions. The headset also comes with both Type C and Micro USB compatibility making it both backwards compatible with the previous Gear VR compatible smartphones on micro USB and the future ones including the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ based on Type C ports.

The Gear VR controller also brings in some much needed impressiveness to the VR experience allowing users to interact with the Virtual World. Further on, if you are a Galaxy S8 or S8+ user, then the Gear VR (2017) with its controller should be on top of your accessory list to go with the phone as it supports both Gear VR based content as well as Google's Daydream apps making them the only smartphones currently to support the both the major mobile VR platforms.

You can buy the Gear VR (2017) with the controller from the Buy Now link below:
