On paper the Riem 3 Plus looks like a pretty great deal. Realistically the best experience you’ll get is “ok”, but there are few options that are worth the money at its price range. This HMD is one of them.
VRS OVERALL RATINGRecomended Not Recomended
This is another HMD from an eastern brand with an untraceable website. While we did find a website for Hong Kong-based “Ritech”, there was no sign of VR HMD cases anywhere to be seen. So it’s not clear if it’s the same company or not.
In terms of the actual headset, this is a very white, very 90s-looking Fisher-Price thing. That being said, a closer look reveals an HMD with lots of little details.
The HMD is designed to require no focus adjustment by the “optical doctor team” at Ritech.
You can vary the distance to the screen in the same way as with the Gear VR, it seems. So you don’t need to wear glasses with it, although you can according to the marketing material.
One really important feature is the addition of lots of ventilation. Even with some of the $200 premium mobile HMDs you’ll run into overheating issues fairly quickly.
There’s an AR window and liberal foam padding for both the phone holder and your face. The Riem 3 Plus will take any phone from 4.7-6 inches.
One of the bundles comes with an Android Bluetooth controller. Given that the HMD by itself is a large portion of the cost, make of the quality of the controller what you will.
On paper the Riem 3 Plus looks like a pretty great deal. Feedback from people who have actually used one is mixed and realistically the best experience you’ll get is “ok”, but for the price there are few options that are worth the money. This HMD is one of them.
