    I have the Viewmaster headset. Well built. Easily modded to add strap. Best of all...... only $15 at Target.

    I like my cardboard (added strap for it for better usage), and use it with some apps to try (free) vive titles. But there are a lot probelms in my Samsung S4 that makes it not fun for long period of time. First the quality is not there for me (but with interesting content it can be unnoticed), battery is drained really fast, and i think i have some problem with gyroscope, because it keep sliding to left side (without any movement). I like to look at it as a window to vr, until i get the real stuff.

    Root around in Ebay and you can find hard shell viewers for $5. Like the VR Box.

    It worked pretty well for me using the low res Galaxy S3. I was blown away by a video of minecraft in VR. Just wow!
    And think about the effect of it when using a better phone.

    I'm starting out with a plastic box, lenses, head strap sort of "Cardboard" and it does have a left side mag-switch.

    I'm driving it with an Alcatel Idol 3 (5.5") so I think I've hit a usable minimum.
    • 5.5" display, 1080p, 401ppi
    • Snapdragon 615 octacore (4x1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4x1.0 GHz Cortex-A53), Adreno 405
    • 2GB RAM
    • Gyroscope and magnetometer
    • Marshmallow 6.0.1

    I really couldn't see doing it with less...
