REVIEW: from a PRO to an ENTRY LEVEL user

First impression
I was handling an inexpensive but robust device.

Features review
With its easiness in adjusting the pupils distance and focus, the LEJI – VR Mini 3D Glasses are suitable for whoever is looking for a friendly approach to a VR experience on mobile platforms.

The box contains:

  • the glasses
  • 3 points head strap
  • a card with 2 QR codes to access to the LEJI web site
  • a microfiber cloth.

To prevent the mobile from sliding, there are some small circular rubber elements plus a bigger one in the back of the front Detail of the front panelpanel: a very good choice, but having used a Galaxy Note 4 for the test, with a screen of roughly 6” and not really thin, I have experienced some problems placing it into the slot: the front panel is really stiff and the rubber element at the back is too thick.

For those who want to have a better experience I strongly recommend to buy a bluetooth controller to easily interact with the mobile while it’s in use into the LEJI VR. It is really annoying to have to remove it if the interaction with the touch screen is needed.

A good bundle is available on amazon.co.uk at £14.50 

I solved the problem using the app Samsung SydeSync that allows the full interaction with the Samsung devices via PC.

Final verdict
Working as VR and 3D CGI producer, I recommend this device as a valid alternative to a cardboard one, thanks to its robustness and adaptability to different mobiles.
