Samsung has been working with VR heavyweight Oculus for quite a while now, and while the promise of a VR headset for Samsung phones has been compelling it's also been mostly a developer kit until now. The Samsung Gear VR marks Samsung and Oculus finally making this smartphone-based VR experience something everyone with a Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy Note 5, and Galaxy S6 edge+ should check out, and if you're on that list you should seriously consider picking on up.
Here's where you need to look to grab a Gear VR of your very own.
Of the places Samsung has been selling the Gear VR, Amazon has been the most capable when it comes to delivering the headset in a timely manner. If you're an Amazon customer, and especially if you're an Amazon Prime subscriber, you're probably going to want to get your Gear VR from Amazon.

Finding a Gear VR in a brick and mortar Best Buy isn't happening just yet, but you can try out a demo of the headset if your local store has a Samsung Experience section to it. When it comes to placing an order, however, you're probably going to be sent to BestBuy.com for a little while to get your Gear VR for in-store pickup or delivery.
