A headset, and a controller. That's everything you need, no phone or PC required.

The Go does pair with a phone (Android or iPhone), but only to help set it up and make adjusting settings easier. You can also look at photos from your phone in VR.

There are PC-connected tethered VR headsets (HTC Vive, Oculus Rift on the left) and ones that work with smartphones (Google Daydream View, Samsung Gear VR, right). Oculus Go is in the middle: It has a similar headset design to Rift, but the function of Gear VR.

Go isn't really a "wear on the go" device. But you could set it up and stand anywhere, and experience VR just fine.

But you need to be standing still, or turning. Go lacks full motion-tracking for walking or leaning.

The headset feels great: the foam padding is comfy and the lenses have been redesigned.

The goggles press in on your face, but it's cozy and didn't fog up my glasses like some headsets.

Oculus Go doesn't support Bluetooth headsets, but there's a headphone jack. Or, you could use the very good built-in speakers.

Browsing apps on the phone app. Many are similar to what's been on Samsung Gear VR for years.

The included controller has a trigger, a clickable touchpad and two top buttons.. but no volume control (that's on the headset). It has motion controls for pointing and twisting the controller, like Apple TV or a Nintendo Switch Joy-Con.

The visuals look good: The LCD display is crisp and doesn't look as fuzzy as some headsets.

There isn't a focus-adjustment dial like Gear VR, but I didn't need one.

The speaker holes are cleverly embedded in the stiff side straps, and pipe spatial audio near each ear. It's like wearing 3D headphones.

I connected with west coast colleague Sean Hollister in Oculus Rooms, a social meeting zone with a TV for viewing Facebook videos and a game table. The chat sounds good with the included speakers and microphones.

There are already hundreds of apps, so plenty of options. But I'm not sure there are many killer apps that would make you rethink VR.

But its price, at $199, is the best for an all-in experience.

(That $199 roughly converts to £150 or AU$255.)

If you have a VR-ready smartphone, you don't need Oculus Go. But it's the best way to try stationary VR and 360-degree videos in a compact package.
