    So, I read somewhere that the headset is going to have a 90-95 fov depending on which pixel phone you use (the bigger, the better obviously). Personally, I find it quite low. The Gear VR is at 101 and the HTC Vive is at 110 degrees. Can anyone confirm that's the case? I'm still gonna get it mainly as a developer, but as a user it sounds quite disappointing. If anyone was lucky enough to try both of them and could share the differences/experiences, it'd be much appreciated!

    I know Russell has tried one out...he'll be able to weigh in. 90 does seem quite low though, doesn't it?

    We've not gotten an official answer yet, but from my experience it looked like it was 90. Not quite as wide as the most recent Gear VR.

    What's your typical 5 incher in Google cardboard work out to? Just for reference.

    I'm using the nexus 5 with cardboard and it's not THAT bad. But it's really only for simple things. If you move around too much you'll see the slow refresh of the IPS display which at best is going to be annoying, at worse it's gonna make you feel dizzy. So always go for a phone with an amoled display.
