Powis VR Reviews
This was my first foray into the world of smartphone based VR and this product was a real disappointment. The build quality is appropriate for this price point. The individual lens focus adjustments are a nice touch. BUT, and this is why I have to give it a poor review….I just could not get the two images to merge into a 3D image with my S3. I saw two images somewhat overlapping, but not all the way. This was the case when I tried the basic cardboard app and a couple of other VR apps.
This is most probably because this device does not allow interpupillary distance adjustments. It is set for a single IPD and if your eyes are set closer (as mine are) or further apart compared to the set IPD in this device, no matter how much you try, it is quite likely that the two images just won't merge. As it stands, for me, this device cannot be used for its intended purpose and I'm in the process of returning it. My recommendation to the manufacturer would be to include a simple means to adjust IPD on this device, even if it is as simple as sliding slots that can be operated by pulling two tabs on the side of the device.
