    I have a Droid mini 4.3'' screen. I have $80 to spend on a vr headset but is it worth it?

    Personally, I would just look into getting a Google Cardboard unit... Like actually one made from cardboard. You can get them pretty cheap ($10-$20 bucks) and that should let you decide if you want to spend more on a nicer one or not.

    Pretty sure there are known issues with the Droid Mini, Maxx, Turbo and RAZR with Google cardboard. Something to do with the magnetometer.

    In any case, look here for Google Cardboard under $2 New Cardboard Quality 3D VR Virtual Reality Glasses iPhone Samsung Nexus Google | eBay

    The cardboard app works fine. I'm just wondering if I'll still get the full immersion effect with my screen size. Was looking at getting the homido

    Definitely try a cheap one first, like Jerry posted above. However, I've used cardboard on my iPhone 5 (which is a 4-inch screen) and it worked OK... The screen will literally be inches from your face.

    I have noticed though that the whole "immersion" thing and how well you like VR in general varies from person to person. Some people love it, others feel it's a gimmick and aren't that impressed. With units as cheap as what Jerry has found above, I'd try it for myself and see.

    Just my .02....
