Description: The Omimo Virtual Reality is the most fashionable and affordable all-in-one VR headset on the market according to its makers. But just how good can a full VR headset be that does indeed cost not much more than some mobile VR headsets?!?
To be fair there are some good stats with this headset. A 124° FOV, Octa-Core Cortex-A7CPU@up to 2.0GHz Chipset and a full 1080p screen! Add to all that you can also plug it into a PC or gaming console! But that is part of the Omimo Uranus One’s problem. It tires to be everything to everyone, but is not master of any of them. Sure it will be a bit of fun to play with, but in the long-term it is nothing more than a fancy pair of video glasses with some VR options.

Review: If I am honest with you I really wasn’t expecting much from the ‘Omimo Uranus One’ and mostly it isn’t much of a VR headset at all. But yet…for watching videos on I found it one of the better cheap Chinese VR headsets. It was easy to navigate, semi-comfortable to wear (if a little too heavy for its own good) and the viewing experience was surprisingly good with a nice wide FOV (wider than normal anyway). Sure, it isn’t going to blow anyone away, but if you can grab one of these for pennies over on eBay you might well be surprised at how good it truly is.
