    As a 3D VR photographer and s/w developer, I’ve tried a lot of phone-based VR viewers over the past two years. Only 3 of them earned an “acceptable” rating from me: the Hasbro My3D, the Goggletech C1 and the Samsung GearVR. Everything else had crummy optics and/or mechanics and/or was impossibly cumbersome to use. My3D and C1 have good lenses with decent eye relief, and and let you get a finger or two on the screen. Negatives: My3D only works with old, small, low resolution phones, and is off the market. C1 has a very insecure attachment tot the phone. GearVR is too cumbersome for viewing web based content, because its native UI has to be disabled in the OS and you have no access to the phone screen.

    Now Wearality Sky is #1 on all counts. Best optics, best mechanics, best screen access.

    Until I tried the Sky, I thought GVR and C1 had the best optics possible in a phone stereoscope. No way. In addition to a bigger field of view, Sky offers a huge ‘sweet spot’ — you can move the lenses quite far, relative to your eyes, without losing focus or gaining color fringes. An amazing feat of optical engineering, with a real payoff in terms of usability.

    This is not an ad; but I recommend Sky so strongly that I want you to have this link:
