    I got a VR headset for my Note 5. I was curious for any of you with the VR if you bought a controller for it. I searched Google and seen multiple styles ranging from Xbox types to single hand remotes. I was curious what type you bought.

    Any replies are appreciated!

    Pretty much any Bluetooth controller will work with the Gear VR. I have a beboncool that I picked up cheap on Amazon a while ago. No where near as comfortable as an xbox 360 controller, but for the price, at least it lets me control things that "require controller"

    From what I read via a google search a PS4 controller doesn't work.

    I got this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...cUvbUpU5624825 which is probably the same as the poster above mentioned. Works well with GearVR and other Android games. About the cheapest controller you'll find.

    Wow that's a cheap and cool controller. I love being able to use it with just the phone and the VR, think I'll be ordering one heh.

    I have the White one as well (Note 5). It works and should work on both.

    Yep. One and the same. I got mine in red (not that it matters one bit).

    It also works outside of VR... As long as the phone can see/use the controller, it's good to use with Gear VR.
