    The main difference is the software behind it (powered by Oculus VS 'normal' Play Store apps), the lenses are better than, say, Google Cardboard, it has the built-in controller pad (not awesome, but useful), and it fits the phones it's designed for much better.

    On other headsets, like the HTC one, Oculus' hardware itself, or LG's, you don't rely on the phone's screen to display things, and HTC's and Oculus' are powered by computers, not phones, which makes them, in theory, more capable.

    Any particular VR headset you're considering? That might help talk about more specific things with someone who might have used both.
