Cotton On VR



Virtual Reality…

Everyone is trying to get on-board now…

And surprisingly, I was able to buy an inexpensive Virtual Reality headset from…Cotton On!

Since they we’re having a “Black Friday sale,” I was able to purchase one for only SGD 15.00 at Cotton On Vivo City

I initially wanted to buy one from Typo, sadly it was sold out!


Basically, this thing is made of cheap plastic… Similar to those inexpensive ones you’ll find online.

It also uses a tray that holds your phone.


For it’s price, do not expect external controls like you’ll find from a Gear VR or a Daydream.

But it isn’t that bad. It has 2 straps (one is over your head), it is also well padded, and you can actually make small adjustments to its lenses.


Thanks to the lack of external controls, you will need to load your video and quickly insert your phone on the VR to use it.

Another issue I’ve found (with my 6P) is that the phone tray’s holder is hitting my phone’s power and volume buttons… I can insert the phone upside down, but the other side of the tray does not have holes for headphones and power cables.

The holder was big enough for my Zenfone 3 with case and the case was thick enough to protect the phone tray to press any buttons.

I honestly would have preferred Typo’s VR… It looks better. But functionality wise, it would have been the same…

Having Cotton On sell an inexpensive VR is good for everyone who wan’t to give it a try… Daydream looks great, but you’ll presently need a Pixel to use it and good luck in finding one now outside the US.
