Product Comparison: Lenovo Mirage Solo vs Oculus Go
- The controller is simple and effective and lasts a long-time (12 hours per manufacturer). I never experienced having the controller getting disconnected while in VR.
- The handheld controller is well designed and intuitive to use. I like that you can swipe in addition to point and clicking.
- The ack-ack controller on the Solo was just plain. It wasn't bad, mind you, it just needed an intuitive trigger button like the Go.
- One minor criticism is that the controller feels sort of cheap because it is very lightweight and basic plastic.
- Calling the Solo "wireless" was not quite correct, since it had no built-in speakers at all.
- Also the controller had horrible drift which made it very difficult to control. I ended up returning.
- It’s about the same size and footprint as a bike helmet. It’s front heavy, but after proper fitment, most of the weight will comfortably rest on the top of your forehead.
- I was able to move around comfortably and it with no problem. If you let the weight rest on your cheekbones instead on top of your forehead, you will feel uncomfortable.
- I use my Solo for 1-2 hours straight. And I have no complaints about its weight.
- Compare to phone based VR headsets, it is better weight-balanced, more comfortable.
- This product is pretty large, don’t expect it to be lugging it around the office or bar showing it off to your friends.
- The buttons on the remote are very convenient and easy to use.
- The headband adjustment is great, I can adjust it for my son and for myself without any efforts.
- The adjustment knob on the back is the most refined adjustment mechanism that I have seen.
- The Lenovo was distractingly difficult to keep on my head, I hated the "cinch up" headband; as soon as my head moved, the headband would lose its grip.
- It the headband is down right horrible. In order for it to be comfortable and not pull away from my face letting light in is to just set it on my head and don't move the band.
- There are no built-in speakers, which is very frustrating. Comes with two headphones that look scary.
