    With the s7 you couldn't use the headset with a screen protector on the phone was just curious if the s8 is the same way. Thinking of upgrading soon from the s7.

    I have a screen protector on my S8+ and the VR headset doesn't have any issues.

    You may see a slight drop in clarity but it depends on the screen protector. I have read reports of some screen protectors showing patterns etc while in vr. I have an armor suite and have no issues.

    Depends on the screen protector. I've noticed that full coverage protectors lift when placed in the VR and case friendly ones don't.

    Mine works perfectly with a screen protector on. No loss in clarity on the VR that I can see.

    I have zagg glass and it works fine. I thought I read where some can even use their case, but it's a definite no-go for my Spigen neo hybrid.

    Depends on which VR headset you have. The new version doesn't put pressure on the screen above the USB slot. I had that problem on the last gen. The new gear vr leaves no marks or indents.

    Kind of off the original post, but does anyone know where the Oculus app and games etc are stored? On the S7 they were on the internal memory which limited how many you could have at one time. You could not play them from the SD card but could store them there due to the backplane not being able to pass the info fast enough for smooth game play.

    I was wondering since they offered the 256G miniSD, it would be nice to store them all there and play them from there as well....
