Google Daydream VR discounted to $50 for a month (US only)

A week ago, a $500 “Oculus Ready” PC was unveiled, but still the cheapest way to experience VR is through a smartphone headset. Google’s entry, the Daydream, is discounted in the US to $50 (usually $80) from today until February 25. Yep, US only.

We were quite impressed with Daydream and especially the remote – something both the Samsung Gear VR and Google’s earlier Cardboard lack. Of course, the headset itself isn’t enough, you’ll need a compatible smartphone – here’s the list:


  • Google Pixel
  • Google Pixel XL
  • Moto Z / Moto Z Droid
  • Moto Z Force

Upcoming support

  • Huawei Mate 9 Pro
  • ZTE Axon 7
  • Asus Zenfone AR

Of these, the Axon 7 is the most affordable – $400 in the US.
