Final Verdict: At long last the “A” range of Galaxy smartphones is getting a Gear VR approved version. What this means is good quality VR now isn’t limited to more expensive flagship devices making them cheaper and within just a few generations time very, very affordable. With its new Super AMOLED display running at 1080 x 2200 resolution it isn’t going to be the sharpest looking of the Gear VR compatible smartphones, but it’s going to be pretty good. Let’s just hope the active series of Samsung phones join in on this VR compatible trend.
