Optimize the image quality of Samsung Gear VR
In order to enjoy optimal picture quality on the Samsung Gear VR, it is important to adjust both the virtual reality headset and the accompanying smartphone. Keep in mind that even the smallest particle of dust on the phone screen or on the lenses of the headset can be a distraction once in virtual reality. It is therefore essential to keep your equipment as clean as possible. Here is the best way to clean Gear VR lenses and optimize picture quality.
Clean the smartphone screen and Gear VR lenses
First of all, start by cleaning the screen of the smartphone using a microfiber cloth. Scrub carefully until the screen is completely clean. It is also possible to use special cleaning products. We you recommend using a solution of 60% water and 40% vinegar, then wiping until the screen is completely dry. You can also find special wipes for optical lenses online, such as Zeiss Lens Cleaning Solutions. Then use a compressed air canister to remove any particles stuck to the Gear VR lenses.
Adjust the focus of the Samsung Gear VR
Now put on the Gear VR headset. Use the + / - dial located at the top of the camera to adjust the focus according to your vision. The people with perfect vision will use the highest setting by turning the dial to the right towards the + symbol, while the more short-sighted should turn the dial to the left towards the - symbol. If you are not sure, turn the dial to the right as far as possible, then turn to the left until you reach the desired focus.
Adjust the straps and position of the Samsung Gear VR
After finding the right focus for you, adjust the helmet to your head by moving it forward and back. The most comfortable position will not necessarily be the best in terms of image sharpness. Conversely, pushing the headset to increase readability may reduce comfort. It's up to you to find the position that suits you. The easiest way to find the perfect setting is to attach a piece of text and adjust the headset until that headset is totally clear. For example, you can fix health warnings that appear when starting the Samsung Gear VR.
After achieving optimum sharpness, check the helmet straps. For maximum comfort, make adjustments so that they are neither too tight nor too tight. The ideal setting is both comfortable and stable enough that head movements do not reduce focus.
Optimize the sound of Samsung Gear VR
By default, the sound of the Samsung Gear VR comes from the external speaker of your smartphone. same if the latest mobiles benefit from speakers of astonishing quality, nothing beats the quality offered by an audio headset. It is possible to connect a Bluetooth headset to your Samsung smartphone, but Oculus recommends the use of a wired headset. For good reason, Bluetooth can increase latency and affect audio spatialization. For maximum immersion, opt for headphones with active noise reduction.
After choosing the right headset for you, simply plug it into the smartphone's jack. The Samsung Gear VR has a space to let out the headset wire even if the smartphone is installed. Plug in your headset, then launch your Samsung Gear VR.
