If you have a larger phone, rather than a smaller tablet, this is one of the few HMDs that will accommodate your beastly phone without an impossibly tight squeeze. Whether that’s worth it is ultimately up to the individual.

Durovis is one of the better known names in the mobile HMD game and their Dive 5 has been quite popular by all account, but their larger version is not quite as well-known. So here it is, the creatively-named Dive 7.
For the most part this is a similar system to the Dive 5. The field of view is wider, by about 20 degrees for one thing, but otherwise you’d be hard-pressed to spot the difference in anything other than size.
As the name suggests, this HMD case is designed for tablets. In fact, Durovis have claimed that it is the first headset meant for tablets. Whether they are really first is debatable, but what’s even more debatable is whether this is really for tablets at all.
You see, this is specified for units up to 7-inches in size. There are tablets that are only 7-inches, but most are between eight and ten. It would be more accurate to say that this is the first headset designed to accommodate phablets which easily fit into that size ballpark.
One tablet that is often paired with the Dive 7 is the 7-inch Amazon Fire, although the actual VR capability of such a low-end device might be an issue for some.
Still, if you have a larger phone, rather than a smaller tablet, this is one of the few HMDs that will accommodate your beastly phone without an impossibly tight squeeze. Whether that’s worth it is ultimately up to the individual.
