We will also address the important question, is WMR (Lenovo Explorer) worth buying in 2019. Lets’ get started.
Design & Build Quality
Lenovo is a well-known company and it is known for its quality products and Lenovo Explorer is no exception. The Design of Lenovo Explorer may look identical to the Oculus Touch but there are some differences which make the Lenovo Explorer more unique. It features the visor-shaped headset which you can flip upward. This small design move is very useful as it allows you to lift the headset up and do things without taking it off.
Oculus Rift is considered to be one of the best VR platforms that you can find out there. It looks great, it’s very consistent and it has a stellar game library accrued over the years. But that being said, is it still an option for 2019 or are there better options out there?
Design and Comfort
The Oculus Rift comes with Velcro straps and a comfortable padding for the faceplate. The unit is actually lighter when compared to the VIVE for example, which makes it a bit better when it comes to moving around and using it for a few hours. The sleek, fabric coated exterior leaves a small footprint and it’s very good to use. While the design still seems quite futuristic, it’s something that does stand out and it’s a pleasure to use. Of course there will be discomfort if you use this device for hours without stopping, but if you just play for an hour and then just take breaks, you will be fine.
