    What does it matter now if men believe or no?
    What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside,
    To murmur in pity that my words were true

    So how much does the phone upto spec cost? it isn't cheap is it (I can't chuck my lumia 520 in).

    So the cost to rift is similar, yes I suppose if you already have such a phone fair enough but I will just wait for the rift production unit.

    More and more phones these days are greater than 4.7". The S5, Samsung's flagship 'mainsteam' phone is over 5". iPhones excluded, probably the majority of new Android phones and perhaps Windows Phones as well sold now will be 4.7"+ and a good proportion of Android phones already are.

    To be honest I never want to own a phone that big so I am out.

    Would be interesting to get a performance comparison of this + S5 vs rift DK2

    Samsung is thought to be working on a similar 'strap-on smartphone' headset; http://www.engadget.com/2014/05/22/samsung-vr-headset/
