Samsung has been working with VR heavyweight Oculus for quite a while now, and while the promise of a VR headset for Samsung phones has been compelling it's also been mostly a developer kit until now. The Samsung Gear VR marks Samsung and Oculus finally making this smartphone-based VR experience something everyone with a Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy Note 5, and Galaxy S6 edge+ should check out, and if you're on that list you should seriously consider picking on up.
Here's where you need to look to grab a Gear VR of your very own.
Of the places Samsung has been selling the Gear VR, Amazon has been the most capable when it comes to delivering the headset in a timely manner. If you're an Amazon customer, and especially if you're an Amazon Prime subscriber, you're probably going to want to get your Gear VR from Amazon.
Finding a Gear VR in a brick and mortar Best Buy isn't happening just yet, but you can try out a demo of the headset if your local store has a Samsung Experience section to it. When it comes to placing an order, however, you're probably going to be sent to BestBuy.com for a little while to get your Gear VR for in-store pickup or delivery.
Like the Innovator Edition before it, if you want to order your Gear VR directly from Samsung you are able to do so. The price is the same as you'll find everywhere else, but Samsung is up front on their order page about how long it will take to arrive so you know exactly what to expect before adding the headset to your shopping cart.
