Overall Packaging Presentation: It has the classic Polaroid colours on the box and it is very shop friendly. Featuring all the relevant information you need to decide whether or not to buy it as well as some nice images of the headset and some random people. Inside the box, the headset is stood upright and looks nicely displayed in a cardboard frame. So overall well presented and quite good protection inside of the box. A dust bag would have been nice, but beggars can’t be choosers.

First Impressions: Looking at it inside of the box with the headset facing upwards it looked a lot better than I thought it would do! But sadly from the moment I took it out of the box and held it n my hands that quality soon started to fall apart. It feels cheap, on closer inspection of it, it looks cheap and doesn’t feel very nice to hold at all. I can only hope the experience it offers is better than it looks.

Features Review: And now this headset starts to fall apart. While it does have independently adjustable pupil distance, that is just about all it has when it comes to features. Even the head strap isn’t worth talking about. These days I expect a little more from a mobile VR headset so this is a real let down.

Final Verdict: Overall this headset is cheap and nasty. Sure it works OK and the view isn’t the worst I have ever seen, but I can’t suggest anyone buy it. Get this headset as a gift for your very first headset and you might be OK with it. But personally, I would have a basic Google Cardboard headset than this.
