Past the striking looks and the cost, the class-leading 120-degree FOV and innovative phone loading and retention mechanism may be enough to convince you.

We’ve seen some wacky smartphone HMD designs, but the Freefly definitely ranks close to the top in terms of strange looks. It has these weird wing-like structures on the front of the HMD which makes you think it might actually “freefly” away.
Overall however, it must be said that the Freefly is a really premium-looking product. From the faux leather padding to the quality of the smartphone holder plastic, it looks pretty extravagant.
One nice touch is the addition of capacitive touch triggers, removing the need for a controller (although a bluetooth controller is also available from Freefly). It also has anti-fog lenses and comes with a carry case and lens cloth. Overall you can really tell where the money has gone.
One major issue is the lack of diopter adjustment, which means that folks who need glasses probably should not apply.
If that’s not an issue for you then the class-leading 120-degree FOV and innovative phone loading and retention mechanism may be enough to convince you. You can fit a phone between 4.7 and 6.1 inches, with a little device which automatically adjusts to the thickness of the phone. This ensures a very stable and tight fit. The Freefly is a HMD worth considering if your vision is up to it.
