    Basically cardboard is disappearing and Google Daydream is the new cardboard. Phones and VR headsets need to support it ZTE Axon 7 being one of the first. Guessing OP4 will be first real VR phone with Daydream VR compatibility. Just a heads up.. VR is just a gimmick unless Daydream VR phone or Gear VR.

    Doesn't daydream need Android N? Which is possibly a reason why Axon is not yet available?

    I think Google has to approve the devices ahead of time also so only new approved phones work not just OS dependant.

    Make no mistake... Daydream and Gear VR are also gimmicks

    I had a S6 with gear VR and it was marginally better than cardboard. VR won't be worth using until we get 4k phones

    Hmm, Good point. Kind of forgot about that.

    I was already looking at the Gear but I know it is only comparable with the 6/7 Edge, but knowing the 3 might not be compatible with either, I just might pick up a 7 anyway, if I don't like the 3 that much.

    What does being daydream compatible even mean anyways? I already have VR on my OPO, isn't that good enough?

    Cardboard was just a beginning. Daydream compatible means better screen & better sensors & lot of other improvements to deliver realistic & immersive experience.

    Daydream is just initiated.. So it will take. Lot. Of time to mature and come as mainstream.. So till then buy a popcorn and enjoy with your op3.. Or buy a Playstation VR if ur a VR fan..

    Am I the only one who thinks strapping the phone to your face is the stupidest thing ever? I can understand actual vr devices like oculus rift or whatever, still very dumb but at least those are actual devices made for this task, but strapping a phone to your face? I'd rather get a Nintendo virtual boy. Really don't understand this vr fad that's going on lately. This is all going to fail again just like it did in the nineties. I just hope this will at least help developing vr porn games in my lifetime.
