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.

    • The 123 subway station at Penn Station finally has B41. Its from the Transit wireless DAS but in the past it only had B25 LTE. Nice to see more B41 lighting up underground. I'm going to check the ACE side sometime this week as well. 
    • I'd just wonder how long it would take to get the networks to mesh.  How integrated would they need to be to have seemless handoffs, especially with voice.  Then how long will this integration take to get to that point. That's if they even integrate networks. Maybe they could say just point Sprint's equipment to TMobile's servers, push some updates and be integrated.  Not knowing a thing about how their networks work, this is the grey area and the area I'd be concerned with.  For data, I can see just open up bands to each others customers, retransmit requests/packets if hopping networks.  But not sure that will go well for VoLTE.  Plus there could be a lot of lost packets which wouldn't be good for a lot of services.  I'd imagine at first say as a Sprint customer I would be able to use the TMobile network, but when the phone scans it would scan for Sprint channels first then scan for TMobile if it can't find Sprint.  
    • Apparently the MiniMacros was an actual order placement.  But I don't know how long of a period a time this order is for.
    • Hmm makes sense kinda, I've noticed my battery has tanked a lot myself. Probably going to disable it and see if it makes a difference.
