The VR box design is inspired from the ‘Storm Trooper’ of Starwars. The extra grill details on the front makes it feel a little more premium. Attached to the side and top is a stretchy elastic strap that you can easily adjust to fit your head no matter how wonky it is.
The Optical adjuster on top works well. You have the option to move each lens individual forwards, backwards, left & right allowing you to get the optimal focus.
VR Box has done a good job with the sponge cushioning around the rim. The material is very soft and feels well padded (it feels a lot softer than it looks in the pictures).
Setting up & testing the VR Box
The VR Box comes pre-assembled in a cardboard box with the few essentials you’ll need to get you going.
Work Procedure: The VR Box uses side-by-side images and dual-optics to create the illusion of one 3D image or video.
Open YouTube and search “3D VR”.
Select a video
Place your smartphone into the VR Box plastic insert panel
Fit panel into the VR Box.
Put on the headset
Adjust the optics until the image becomes clear.
Inserting your phone is easy, just pull back the spring mechanism and insert your phone. The insert pressure feels just about right keeping your phone held firmly. Once your phone is secure you then slide the tray into the headset (top tip: much easier with the headset off than on). The VR Box takes phones with a maximum width of 3 inches (7.5cm) and a maximum length of 6 inches (15cm).
Official specifications say the VR Box fits phones between 4.7 – 6 inches. There is a slightly curved edge so you may be able to squeeze a slightly longer phone in depending on its size and shape.
It’s also worth mentioning that if your phone has a full HD screen then definitely look for Full HD VR content as anything less can look at little grainy when viewed in VR.
Getting VR Games & Apps
Your best bet in finding a decent VR experience is to search VR on the Google Play store.

Watching VR Videos:
If you are going to use headphones with the VR Box, (which you definitely should be to get a more immersive experience), then make sure your headphone port is facing right so that when you remove your phone the headphone wire comes out with the insert.
