Hello internet! Today we going to unpack and review new Xiaomi VR headset.

If you following Xiaomi, you may know that It is not the first attempt of company create a VR helmet.

I have already used this helmet for quite a while and may say that this time they have created one of the best VR headsets, at least among those that requiting smartphones to function.

It is very comfortable to wear, has nice appearance, but of course not without drawbacks.

I should warn you that I will speak about the Chinese version of the device, and I have no idea if there going to be any international version of this headset.

So, device packed in the simple white box with picture of the headset on the one side and short description in Chinese on the other.

Inside you will find VR headset itself, remote control and very short manual.

Xiaomi VR has gorges futuristic appearance with nice sleek edges.

Those who familiar with VR industry will notice that overall design strongly inspired by Playstation VR and has huge amount of similarities.

Device has halo ring that will fit almost every head size by simply pressing button on the back and pulling or pushing the halo for adjusting.

The special design allows the headset to distribute the weight to the back of your head so it does not put pressure on the face, like in cases of majority of other helmets.

Moreover, with such construction you don’t need to remove the headset from your head all the time when you returning to the real world.

You can just simply pull helmet up and it will be securely fastened on your head.

It is quite heavy and even without smartphone weight about 420 grams.

Moreover, it is also very big and can’t be deconstructed.

It doesn’t really matter when you wearing the headset but it can create difficulties for moving the device, for example during the trip.

Unfortunately, Xiaomi VR supports only Xiaomi phones.

What is even more disappointing it does only compatible with latest devices such as Xiaomi mi 5 series that including original, Plus and 5s, Xiaomi Mi Note and Xiaomi Mix.

I don’t know if in the future there will be support of any other than Xiaomi devices.

The worst part that it only work with one particular app which haven’t been translated, at least, to English.

Before connecting your device to the headset you need to install Xiaomi VR application by scanning a QR code on the manual.

After app will be installed need to remove the lid, put you phone on the clip with USB type C, then fix it with clip on the other side and close the lid.

Helmet will automatically enter the installed app.

Thanks to dedicated motion sensor, the movements and images on the display are fully synchronized, that preventing motion sickness, however FHD resolution on the most of the supported devices not enough for VR, that is why image going to be a bit blurry no matter how accurate lenses have been adjusted.

That is especially noticeable when you have to read some text on the screen or even when you watching some videos movements and images on the display are fully synchronized, that preventing motion sickness, however FHD resolution on the most of the supported devices not enough for VR, that is why image going to be a bit blurry no matter how accurate lenses have been adjusted.

That is especially noticeable when you have to read some text on the screen or even when you watching some videos.

For playing games and navigation Xiaomi VR also includes 9-axis inertial motion controller, which you will have to connect to you phone via Bluetooth.

In total, Xiaomi VR is the device that still have space for improvement, especially in terms of software and compatibility, however, even with this critical shortcomings, thanks to flawless design and amazing performance, it still far ahead most of other phone based VR headsets.

And that is all for today.

I’m Elijah.
