    Hi everyone, so I got my s8+ today and was wondering does the 2016 Gear VR work with the S8+?

    I think so. Not 100% sure but I would hope they wouldn't promo it with the 8+if it didn't work. I registered for my vr today and it said 6 to 8 weeks!

    I've been trying for about an hour now and it still will not fit, If anyone else could give me some help as well would be great.

    Dont try anymore unless you want to damage your phone and Gear VR. S8 uses USB type C and previous phones uses micro USB

    It won't work with the plus definitely too tall. I was disappointed with it myself.

    That explains it I'll take it back because this is the one that store gave me with the phone. Should change it for the 2017 model.

    There is an adapter in the box with the 2016 VR.
