Experience Virtual Reality in Your Budget!
18 May 2018
I wanted to try out the Virtual Reality and decided to buy a VR headset under 1K as I was on a budget. I wanted a good quality VR headset, after a lot of research on YouTube and Amazon, I bought this VR headset from Irusu. I have been using it for almost a month, So I guess this is the best time to review it. In this review, I have mentioned in detail about the product and my experience of using it. I also mentioned some of the pros and cons of this VR. So let's start the review.
Packaging and Delivery
The sales package was inside an amazon box with necessary protection to prevent damaging in-transit. There is also some protection inside the sales package, So we don't have to worry about damaging the VR in-transit. The VR headset and the remote was securely packed inside the sales package. I also attached some pictures of the packaging for your reference.

Build Quality of the VR
The build quality of the VR headset is great indeed. One of the most important feature of this VR is that it can hold phones up to 6 inch. This is the only VR that is suitable for mobiles like Mi Max 2. The VR was made of good quality plastics and the padding is great for the price paid. The straps are also good in quality. There is sponge and padding on the front side of the VR, Where the phone is placed. So we don't have to worry about scratching your phone. There is no button on the VR, that makes it difficult to use the VR without the remote. Overall the VR was good in terms of build quality.
The main reason, I chose Irusu over other brands is their lens quality. I have seen many reviews and comparisons, most of them recommended Irusu for better lens quality. The 42mm bigger lens gives better Field of View (FOV). We can adjust the Inter Pupilary Distance (IPD) as per our requirements. The lens quality was great (as per my experience). Irusu provided a lens cleaning cloth, it was really useful for cleaning the lens. Irusu was the best in terms of lens quality (as per my research and experience).
Build Quality of the Bluetooth Controller
The build quality of the Bluetooth controller is good indeed. The Bluetooth controller runs on 2 X AAA batteries. The controller works both on IOS and Android as well. The IOS button works as a power button, The Android button works as the pairing button. The controller has two buttons on the front side of the controller. The controller's design was really good and it is comfortable to use (based on my experience). Irusu is providing a Bluetooth controller along with the VR headset for a price lower than some other VR headset. You can also use the Bluetooth controller as a selfie clicker and as a wireless mouse and use it to switch between music tracks. I particularly use it for playing VR games.
Compatibility and Apps
The VR works on all phones with gyroscope. The remote works both on IOS and Android. Now about the apps, Irusu has their own range of apps apart from google cardboard, Which no other brands seems to offer. We can download their apps from playstore or appstore for free. I particularly like the theater app, it gives an experience of watching our favorite movies in a virtual theater. It also has another app fully loaded with VR content. Irusu's apps are designed with creativity.
I have been using this VR for almost a month. It was a great experience using it. The lens quality is the main reason, I chose this VR. Their apps are designed great and was very useful. I had a great experience using the theater app. The VR and the accessories are great in quality and are very useful. Even though the VR is not like an expensive VR headset, but it performed well for the price paid.
😊 42mm Bigger Lenses.
😊 Good Build Quality.
😊 Remote Controller.
😊 Range of Apps.
😊 Cushion Padding (Not great but good for the price).
😊 Light - Weight.
☹️ Lack of a Button on the VR.
That's all I can find now, Will update the review, If face any issues in future.
If you are on a budget and need to experience Virtual Reality, You can go for this one. If you can spend some extra bucks for the VR, You can go for Irusu Monster VR, it was the best VR under Rs.2,000. Although the mini VR is not like an expensive VR headset, but it performed well in its range. Overall considering all things, this VR is a value for money product.
That's all I have to say. I am happy to share my experience with my fellow buyers.
Thank You for reading the review.
