Design

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
3.adjustable IPD
HP Reverb G2
Interpupillary distance (IPD) is the distance between the center of your eyes. Without adjustable IPD, the lenses of a VR headset may not line up with your pupils, which can result in eye strain and nausea.
4.battery power

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
8.volume

1171.8cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
9.maximum operating temperature

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The maximum temperature at which the device can perform to the optimal level.

Display & Lenses

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
2.resolution

2160 x 2160px & 2160 x 2160px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
A wider field of view assures an immersive and realistic experience.
The frequency at which the screen is refreshed. Higher frequency results in less flickering (less noise) and more natural movement representation in action-intense scenes.
With adjustable lenses, the device can assure a sharp and clear image for a wide range of users, including users who usually wear glasses.
6.Has a display
HP Reverb G2
The device has an electronic display to present information to the user.
OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) displays are formed of organic materials that emit light. They have higher contrast ratios and wider viewing angles compared to LCDs. AMOLED and POLED are types of OLED displays.
8.lens diameter

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Lenses with a bigger diameter offer better image quality.
9.pixel density

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.

Performance

1.CPU speed

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
2.RAM

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
3.internal storage

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The internal storage refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.

Tracking

1.Tracks head movement
HP Reverb G2
As your head moves, the images move in real-time, assuring a realistic experience.
2.has a gyroscope
HP Reverb G2
A gyroscope is a sensor that tracks the orientation of a device, more specifically by measuring the angular rotational velocity. Initially, they were built using a spinning rotor to detect changes in orientation, like twisting or rotation.
The device can track your position in space and warn you if you are about to hit something.
The headset has multiple sensors and cameras that assure low latency tracking for 360° movements.
5.has an accelerometer
HP Reverb G2
An accelerometer is a sensor used to measure the linear acceleration of a device. A common application is detecting when a device changes between vertical and horizontal positions.
6.Has gesture control
HP Reverb G2
The gesture control function allows you to manipulate virtual objects.
7.tracking area

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The area of the surface that can be used for VR or AR simulations. A larger tracking area allows you more freedom of movement.
With an infrared sensor the device can detect motion by measuring the infrared (IR) light radiating from objects in its field of view.
The device can track the movement of your eyes and your gaze, making it easy to interact with the content.

Connectivity

1.Has USB Type-C
HP Reverb G2
The USB Type-C features reversible plug orientation and cable direction.
2.Bluetooth version

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
It is compatible with a range of Android devices such as smartphones and tablets.
It is compatible with a range of iOS devices such as iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch.
Allows you to connect to a display using DisplayPort.
6.mini DisplayPort outputs

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Allows you to connect to a display using mini-DisplayPort.
7.HDMI ports

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

More HDMI ports mean that you can simultaneously connect numerous devices, such as video game consoles and set-top boxes.
Newer USB versions are faster and have better power management.
