The H1 is clearly meant as a brand-agnostic competitor to the Gear VR from Samsung and if the software support for its hardware improves it may very well achieve that goal.

PROS
  • Durably made
  • Included 9-axis motion tracking
CONS
  • Limited Software Support
  • Problems with the lenses reported

Recomended Not Recomended

Coming from technology Mecca/Wild West Shenzhen in China, there may be more to the Dlodlo Glass H1 than a tongue-twisting name.

This is an ABS plastic HMD case, which is a tough but affordable plastic also commonly used in 3D printers.

It’s more than a case though and comes with a micro-USB connection to hook your phone up to the HMD’s electronics.

This includes a 9-axis IMU and a proximity sensor. You’ll also find a control pad and volume buttons.  Interestingly, the H1 also features automatic IPD adjustment, which is something we haven’t seen before on a mobile case HMD.

Dlodlo have said that their HMD will be Google Daydream compatible, but at the time of writing this did not seem to be the case.

Another current issue is the fact that the onboard sensors and controls only work with the Dlodlo app. That’s an issue, since the app is both low on content and what content there is comes from the Chinese market.

There have also been a number reports that the lenses are not the best, especially for an HMD that’s been priced a bit higher than the competition. That being said, the padding and the rest of the material has been positively received.

The H1 is clearly meant as a brand-agnostic competitor to the Gear VR from Samsung and if the software support for its hardware improves it may very well achieve that goal.
