If you have the 2016 model headset (2016 Black version)

If you have the 2016 model headset (2016 Black version) it does work. you have to go to the VR app, then go to ""more"" and then ""controllers"". From there is where you pair the controller to the Vr software. Just make sure you update the software first

It's an hour long project to connect it to the S7 unless you read this tutorial!

I'm giving the controller 3 stars because Samsung makes it excruciatingly difficult to connect your controller.I have an S7 Edge and it took me over an hour to make it connect. For those of you facing issues where the software says it needs to update before it can connect and then the window closes, or those of you who finally get past that mess and then have it say it failed to connect your Gear VR controller, here's how to navigate this annoying mess so you can use the controller your just paid for.TUTORIAL (Shorter version at the end of this review - no commentary)1. Try to connect it normally as the manual says. It'll most likely fair. If not, kudos to you for having an easy process. Most of us are not so fortunate that all we need to do is RTFM.2. Most likely in that last step you got a message in the Oculus app saying you need to update your your software, then when you try it gives you a message saying everything is up to date. (In other words, the app is just blowing smoke up your a and spitting in your face.)3. Now to get around that issue, you'll need to reinstall your Oculus app. Remember that Facebook and Samsung aren't bright enough to add it to Google Play, so long press the Oculus icon and click ""uninstall."" After that, just connect the Gear VR headset to your phone and it'll automatically install the Oculus app for you. (Don't worry. It's a shorter install than the first time and you won't lose all of your Oculus apps either.)4. Now relaunch the Oculus app and you'll see a message asking you to watch a video to get rid of the annoying health warning every time the app launches. (HOORAY! They finally did something to fix that.) It's well worth it and the video is pretty funny.OK, now back to business. Go to the More -> Controllers page again and you should see it says ""Pair"" instead of giving you useless error popups.5. Use the steps from the manual again involving the home button on the controller and click ""Pair"" in the app. See if it works, but most likely it won't. If you get a message saying ""Failed to connect the Gear VR Controller"" or some similar load of bollocks, go to the next step.6. I know, I know. It should work especially if you restart the app or reset the bluetooth controller, etc. Surprise, surprise it doesn't, so restart, restart your phone! lol (Just restart it once.)7. You're now nearing the end of our journey through Samsung's mayhem. (At least it isn't packed with explosives like those poor people who bought a brand new Note 8 last year, but I digress.) Now, you'll need to repeat the steps in the manual once more. This time it'll connect without issue. If not, perhaps you'd like to post a comment on this review showing people what you did to fix it.SHORT VERSION (No commentary)1. Try installing it as per the manual.2. Uninstall the Oculus app by long-pressing on the icon.3. Connect your phone to the Gear VR headset to reinstall the Oculus app.4. Watch the video to get rid of the annoying health warning every time to wear the headset.5. Take your phone off of the Gear VR and restart your phone.6. Retry the steps in the manual and it should connect without issue.

I have an older S7 and headset. No problem, paired right up and started shooting zombies. I do have one question, how do you attach the controller storage strap?

Great for navigation and burning through videos

This controller is great for navigation and burning through videos. It feels great in your hand and the buttons and touch pad work great. It doesn't work with all the games, so if you plan on actually �buying games, you better make sure it's compatible with that specific game first. Takes (2) - AAA batteries and is made specifically for Samsung compatible phones and the gear vr headset. It's compatible from the Note5 to the present galaxy phone. All in all, it's a pretty neat little motion controller,The Good: This controller makes navigating through menus much more convenient since it acts like a virtual laser pointer. Easy set up, very intuitive also works great for all the new content in oculus. Games that use the controller are made much the better for it, as the natural ""point and shoot"" mechanics feel so immersive, and there are new apps showing upquite often.The Bad: There is no positional tracking of the controller, only rotational and tilt tracking. Also there is no vibration at all to simulate actions in VR (i.e. shooting a gun). Together, these limit the final immersive feeling of the VR controller. The batteries are also not rechargeable. Finally, you will have to recenter your controller a lot in-app, but it's a single button press process, so you can pretty much ignore this problem.

How to get to work

Finely got it to work. Had to uninstall the oculus app, then reinstall it. Then it will update the controller. Not a thing on the Samsung site about what you have to do. Hope this helps

Feels good in the hand

Feels good in the hand. I like that it comes with the strap to attach the controller to your headset, so you don't misplace it. Also it comes with batteries in the package. Not too much available to utilize it, but I'm sure things are coming. Because it's Bluetooth it will connect to any galaxy device that is able to be used with the Gear VR.

I tried this from Samsung experience I had too much fun with this controller. I have old gear vr (2015 white) and told that it will be compatible so I got it with Samsung Gear VR Cooling Fan. Now I am having so much fun and all the interaction got so much easier as I don't have to use touch pad for all the actions. I hope more apps/ games will be supported with controller

Makes the Samsung Gear VR Headset MUCH easier to use!

Makes using the Samsung Gear VR headset a much more enjoyable experience. Works on two AAA batteries, which were included. Putting the strap on was a bit of a pain, but that's a one time issue threading it through the correct hole and looping it into place. Once I connected it to my cellphone, there was an immediate update for the device that only took a couple of minutes. Makes playing games and even choosing selections much easier. Should be included with the headset!

Almost perfect, but best one yet

Tried a few out there. They really didn't work that well. Or there was connection issues. No real problem with this one. Except occasionally you have to reorient the controller. Only takes a second and only about once every 10 minutes. But the press pig one button and you're done.

This connects to your phone, NOT your GearVR headset. Supported phones listed in the description and on Google. Not fair to give 1 or 2 stars because somebody is being illiterate. This controller is much better than holding your hand up to your head to swipe. For those who don't mind reading, there's a gear vr community with more than 25,000 members on a website called reddit.

I have yet to be able to use this thing. Sadly, I lost both my hands due to a virtual accident. Bought this for Gunslinger for the GearVR, fun! Love it. Makes a whole difference than the Game controller I used before. Each hand controller has it's use/differences, and this VR controller added a new perspective.
