Deal: 2nd-gen Samsung Gear VR on sale for just $50 on Amazon
Amazon has the 2nd-gen Samsung Gear VR on sale at just $49.81, down from the usual price of $99.99 at the retailer. Samsung itself sells the same device for $69.99. A discount of 28% compared to the best alternative price is something you might want to consider.
Note that, unlike with the HTC Vive or similar standalone headsets, the Gear VR needs to be paired with a compatible Samsung phone. The list of compatible handsets includes the Samsung Galaxy S6, the S6 edge and S6 edge+, the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, as well as the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note 5.
Before committing to a purchase, note that this deal is good for the second-generation Gear VR headset. Since launching this particular model back in November 2015, Samsung has released a newer model, named the Gear VR (2016), which included Note 7 compatibility as well as other minor tweaks.
