Not sure if this device has been mentioned on the boards, but was wondering if anyone used this device with their Note 5 and/or S6's? If so, do you like it, or dislike it?

I spent about 30 minutes with the prototype and a note 4. It was cool to watch a movie in a theater and some of the demo stuff. I dont see myself buying it but its neat.

I'm interested in getting one. I went to Best Buy earlier last week, asked a sales associate if he could help me find one. First thing he said was, "Sorry, but we sold out a while back, and don't know when we'll be getting more." Then he mentioned back orders that will take forever to.

I noticed yesterday, everyone has them in stock online again. I've read about users being annoyed by pixels while watching Netflix, fogging of lenses, and phone overheating. Have you had any issues?

Yes, yes and yes. Some of the experiences like streaming just doesn't look good. Netflix is around standard def to the eyes even though its playing 1080p because of how close you are but it doesnt bother me. Overheating can occur particularly when viewing video for 2 hours or more but games won't make it over heat which is weird. Fogging happened at first because I was so amazed I would sweat while using it but now it never happens and I don't sweat. No one has compalined about fogging that I have let try it. So to sum it up. Netflix 480p res and always download videos over streaming because streams have lots of problems, fogging should go away and varies depending on the person, overheating is a issue if viewing video for a long time.

Yeah is pretty damn great. I really want the rift but at $600 I will wait a year or 2 til the prices come back to reality.

I've been reading about that, and seen a ton of people saying the same thing. Forget paying $600!

Any of you with the S7/S7 Edge that got the VR enjoying it so far? If you get the opportunity, check out NextVR showing live NCAA basketball tournaments. FYI, games tend to freeze during live games, but the rebroadcast games doesn't. Talk about cool angles being courtside, and behind basket seems like you're there! A must see!

If you like fishing, Bait is a fun game. Check out this Pigskin Puffer I caught last night, which snapped my line, fighting not wanting to be reeled in just before I began recording.

    • I posted the below on the essential subreddit.  Wonder if others on sprint have the same issue?   "It is well noted that the essential has reception / radio problems but today, when I roamed on to US Cellular, it completely abandoned 1x and connected to LTE only. Which is fine when connected to Sprint because the phone can pass text messages over LTE. However, while roaming, the phone would not send or receive text messages and could not make or receive calls because it was latched to USCC LTE and needs a 1x connection to do this. My 5X (and I assume every other phone), when it connected to USCC LTE, would somehow get notification of a text or call and idle back over to 1x to take care of things and then dump the 1x connection until needed again (signal check shows all of this happening). Same deal when I would try to send a text as well. Seems the essential is dead in the water under these conditions and just can not bring it self to go to 1x when needed while roaming, at least on USCC. I do not have other roaming carriers up here to test with. I am sure we do not need to go into the problems with being completely unable to make a phone call in the very large areas that Sprint uses USCC to roam on. I can accept if it was just the area I was in. So in that case, any other Sprint users roamed on USCC LTE without any voice or text problems recently? I am on Oreo Beta for what its worth."
    • Twitter might give you better results. 
    • Essential's reception to the reception issues was not very receptive because their reception at the time was poor and they did not receive full receipt of the reception issues. AJ
