Xiaomi's Mi VR Play 2 looks exactly the same as the Google Daydream headmix — và that's probably by design. Save for the color of the headset's fabric, a laông chồng of remote control, (and the $29 price difference) the two headsets easily look lượt thích cousins. But once you put on the Mi VR Play 2, you'll see its $đôi mươi price at work.

Mi VR Play 2 doesn't have sầu a dedicated VR phầm mềm like the Samsung Galaxy Gear VR or the Google Daydream, running VR apps that are only compatible with Google Cardboard. Essentially what you're getting is a souped-up, more comfortable, version of Google Cardboard with an adjustable strap.

When looking at VR headsets, it's important to lớn keep in mind the level of immersion you're getting. This phối isn't an Oculus Rift và it doesn't offer some sort of paradigm shifting VR experience. At around $20, the price range sits directly between nicer VR sets like the Samsung Gear VR and cheaper options like the Google Cardboard sets. But it has plenty of competitors that offer a similar experience, such as the Pocket 360 and Fiit VR.

Design

The Mi VR Play 2 is designed to lớn fit any smartphone with a display kích thước from 4.7-5.7 inches và is actually compatible with far more điện thoại devices than many of its competitors. That said, if you're an OtterBox user — or have sầu any kind of protective case — you'll need to remove sầu it before putting your phone in the Mi VR Play 2.


The headset itself is lightweight và relatively comfortable, with plenty of padding around the mask area. The Velcro strap is easy to lớn phối up, and its soft material keeps it from agitating the user's skin. Unfortunately, the strap doesn't fit particularly well around the ears, and while this isn't a huge problem, it could get annoying during long VR sessions. On top of this, the strap prevents the use of over-ear headphones, which can hamper your ability khổng lồ enjoy horror games that rely heavily on sound.

The Mi VR Play 2 lacks a remote control, and in exchange you get a button located in the top right corner of the headmix. While it's easy khổng lồ reach, continually touching your face isn't a particularly natural inclination when playing a Clip game.

Still, most of these small issues can be overlooked. The major thiết kế flaw is how front-heavy the device is. Because the frame is so lightweight (183 grams), once a phone is inserted into the slot, it can feel as though the headmix is pulling your head forward or slipping down the bridge of your nose.

Performance

The device's cài đặt is relatively simple. All you do is scan the QR code, slide your phone inkhổng lồ the holster, và you're ready to lớn play with any Google Cardboard compatible apps. Unfortunately, the QR code that came with the box was unreadable and I had to resort khổng lồ scouring Google for a valid one. Just something to note.

The mask itself lets in very little light noise, và the small amount you see is completely negligible. While in use, the Mi VR 2 allows for a 93 degree turning radius, and although that's not perfect, it does enough khổng lồ keep the user feeling immersed. The virtual reality views, while not crystal clear, aren't blurry, & the headset's visuals work perfectly fine for its price range. When you're playing, however, the action button can be a bit temperamental and occasionally seems to have a mind of its own, randomly deciding when the button is and isn't going to work.


Verdict

This device is pretty easy lớn pichồng apart. The basic kiến thiết coupled with the fact that the headmix doesn't have sầu a dedicated ứng dụng, limits the Mi VR Play 2's ability khổng lồ do anything revolutionary. On the other, it's still a good, cheap alternative sầu to Google Cardboard và provides a relatively comfortable và intuitive sầu VR experience.

Overall, the Mi VR Play 2 is a functional device, but there are plenty of headsets that bởi the same thing, for the same price, và you get controls that work when you want.

Pros:

• Price

• A lightweight headset

• Compatible with Google Cardboard VR apps

Cons:

• Uncomfortable, front heavy, not a great strap

• Instructions are not clear

• Doesn't have sầu a dedicated VR App
