In relation to the Samsung Gear it claims to be "Powered by Oculus." Do you believe that phroot's library would be better or the Google Cardboard support be better for this?
I haven't looked seriously yet into VR development but after my experience I can't deny that this is going to the future.
It looks to me right now that the Gear priced at $99 and compatible with Samsung S6 and S7 as well as the Note 5 makes it the most reasonable and capable VR device.
I also encourage those people who haven't tried this device to give it a try. I extremely impressed with it.
