Final Verdict: When it comes to use for VR there is simply no better smartphone. With both Gear VR and Google Daydream compatibility its the only phone range (at the time of writing this) that can indeed do both. With its stunning screen, fast processor and pretty impressive battery, this is a phone that will handle anything you can throw at it. While it does still overheat while playing Gear VR games, it doesn’t happen nearly as much as its younger versions.
