FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Uniify Verge Lite VR Headset

Uniify Verge Lite VR Headset UV005: 3D Virtual Reality Headset Glasses for iPhone 6/Plus, Galaxy S7, Note 6 Compatible with Google Cardboard and Daydream, Blue

If this is representative of VR I am disappointed.  However I do recognize that this was $14.88 when I purchased it compared to $70ish for a Samsung Gear VR rig so there is a pretty big price spread.   Now that it is $10.88 it is really cheap but... you do get what you pay for.  When I opened it's box one of the lens was rolling around inside.  I put it in the headset but that may be why things don't focus very well.  I downloaded lots of VR aps from the Google playstore and some of them were ok.  Most were like looking through an old ViewMaster if you are old enough to remember what that is.  Kind of 3D ish but no real great.   The still photos of places where you can look up at say the Eiffel Tower and then look around you in a 360 degree manner were the coolest thing but again, not really clear or in focus. I had hoped for a walking type tour through some place cool but I didn't fine one.  I wasn't interested in games so maybe there are good.

It was interesting the way you could focus a spot on a target to change scenes.  I did hook up a Bluetooth mouse to my Samsung S4 and it worked in some of the programs.   The S4 seemed fine.  My S7 seemed a little big for the unit.  

 You can wear glasses but it is very snug with glasses and was quite uncomfortable with my glasses on.  I did not find more clarity with or without glasses. For the money  this is adequate.  I didn't want to spend $75 to see what VR was all about but if this is all there is to it, I'm not impressed.
