Android based mobile headsets like the GearVR are the cheapest hardware that supports Vivid Vision Home. They use select Samsung phones combined with the GearVR headset to provide a high-quality virtual reality experience.
If you don't already have a powerful computer and don't want to spend $1,500+ getting a PC-based headset and compatble computer system, we recommend getting a GearVR and one of the supported phones for $400-$800 instead. Another advantage to android-based headsets is that they are mobile, allowing you to bring Vivid Vision Home with you wherever you go.
You can get any GearVR compatible phone with a phone plan, and that is often a good way to save some money on the cost of the phone. If you are not planning on switching plans, you can still get the phone without a plan and use Wi-Fi to connect to the internet.
