Aesthetics and comfort aside, what sets the Daydream apart? The answer lies not within the headset itself, but its accompanying accessory. The Daydream's motion-tracked controller is a small and sleek device comparable to a presentation remote. Its intuitive use and lack of wires make it accessible when compared to the Gear's offerings.
As far as app offerings go, so far they are relatively slim. For those still under the spell of Pottermania, the Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them VR App is a safe bet. Also included at launch are a number of games, museum tours, and VR experiences produced by news sources such as The Wall Street Journal, CNN, and USA Today.
