Huawei VR Headset: Giving you more for Less



The headset looks a lot like Samsung’s Gear VR with similar features, but runs on Google’s new VR platform, Daydream. Despite the exterior, the headset still has a lot of similarities with Google’s headset in terms of the visual experience.

I’ll compare Huawei’s VR headset to Google’s and Samsung’s, with an emphasis on Google’s Daydream View as the software is the same, making it much more comparable.

The Design
In terms of navigation, the developers have included a slightly raised touchpad and a “back” button. These are both conveniently located on the right-hand side of the unit. There is also a knob to adjust the focus that is found near the USB port on the bottom half of the headset. So, making minor adjustments while playing a game or watching a video is made simple. Although not yet available, Huawei has promised to release a 360-degree surround sound system which is said to provide a truly “immersive” viewing experience. It has yet to be seen whether this claim will be transformed into a reality during the coming months. With a display of 5.5 inches and a weight just over 250 grams, most users will find the device quite comfortable to wear.

Although the headset integrates its own LCD displays, it isn’t standalone. Indeed, it requires a connection either to a smartphone or a PC.
Regarding the minimum PC requirements, users’ computers will need at least an Intel Core i5 CPU as well as an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 GPU (equivalents or higher).

The Huawei VR contains a Mali-T880 MP4 graphics processor and a Kirin 955 chipset, so the display and functionality will inevitably be smooth. The manufacturers observe that the device pack a “full HD “experience and this claim does not seem to be far off of the mark considering that 1080p resolution and an impressive 401 pixels per square inch are present. Still, let’s not forget that this display is still considered to be the “middle of the road”; the Samsung version boasts no less than 577 pixels per inch.

User Comfort
While the Daydream View is lighter, it is built with some relatively hard foam padding. The foam used in Huawei’s VR headset on the other hand had a very soft feeling to it, but at the same time the headset was quite heavy. If the Daydream View had softer foam, it would be the preferable option for comfort, but as they are, which ends up being the most comfortable for long term use may depend on the individual’s facial structure.
