Best Buy Samsung Father's Day Sale

Is your father an early tech adopter?  You know, the kind of dad that wakes up at the crack of dawn and waits in line to be the ‘first’ person to get his hands on the latest piece of technology?  Or how about the type of dad that enjoys reading tech magazines or perusing the internet in his spare time?  If so, then you are the proud child of a cool tech dad!  By the way, I am too.

My father loves to research the latest tech gadgets and then go out and purchase them.  He is the first in line on Black Friday, the first to order a new computer on Cyber Monday and the first to look in a Sunday newspaper for tech deals.  He is the tech king!  So this year for Father’s Day, I am considering getting him a Samsung phone + Gear VR from Best Buy!

Gear VR has the ability to convert Samsung Galaxy smartphones into a full-on mobile virtual reality experience.  Once you put the headset on you are taken into a world of exciting video games, Hollywood movies and more.

With a super AMOLED display, wide field of view, precise head-tracking and low latency, Gear VR brings virtual reality directly to the viewer.  Furthermore, since the headset is cordless, light weight and fits over most eyeglasses, you can take it literally anywhere you go.

Additional Gear VR features include:

  • The ability to purchase and watch hundreds of movies and TV shows from Oculus Video
  • Stream over 1 million short films and videos from Vimeo
  • Download and watch Netflix with The Netflix app
  • Purchase and play premium games
  • Socialize with friends in your own virtual world

Gear VR is compatible with these select Samsung phones: Galaxy Note5, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5ch.
