    I was impatient and got the S6 innovator edition.
  • How do you like that one? I think there's actually a couple more features in it than the consumer version (such as a fan to keep the lenses fog-free).

    The lenses are CONSTANTLY FOGGING. I got some anti fogging wipes and they help quite a bit. Other than that I really like it. the new one has a redesigned touchpad which looks like it will be much easier to find and use, though I prefer to to use it at all. The only other problem is the thermal throttling of the phone after some time playing, though that's an issue with the phone and not the GearVR.
  • Thanks @xxann5 That's some good insight into the Gear VR. I didn't realize fogging was such an issue with it. Hope the consumer version doesn't fog up as much.

    Well in another thread it turns out that if the HMD is cold it will fog more. and I keep my GeaVR in the basement which is naturally cold.
