Samsung Gear VR, Google Daydream View?

So there seems to be a ton of different VR headsets, some are standalone, some require a computer and some, like the two in the title seem to use smartphones.

Whats the point of the smartphone headsets? How do they work? Are they worth the price tag?

They’re ok. I’ve tried both google cardboard and Samsung gear vr. You can forget about google cardboard if you want a decent gaming experience. Gear VR is fun and will run some ‘ok’ apps depending on your phone. I would just get a oculus go though as it’s only a couple hundred bucks and your phones not gonna overheat like crazy!
