The 10 Best VR Games For Android
Virtual reality is the next revolution for home entertainment. With tech giants like Sony, Oculus, and HTC bringing the powerful experience of virtual reality to right in front of your face, there is no doubt that the smaller display of your smartphone is taking over the large screen TV. Newer higher resolution phone displays will be pushed forward to keep you from seeing pixels at close range while experiencing virtual reality with phone resolution of 4K or even higher.
Sony Playstation VR and Oculus Rift are both very promising in delivering the virtual reality experience and let us not forget about HTC Vive which is equally impressive. Compared to these products, Google Cardboard might not be the most impressive choice but it is so cheap and will let you experience virtual reality today nonetheless.
