Hey! thanks for replying. I think this is the difference between India and USA, they are pro active and we are reactive. They are not providing the whole Gear VR but instead just the adapter so that the current Gear VR doesn't render to be useless. My one of the biggest reason to buy Note 9 was just because of this accessory and now it's a complete waste.
^ am using gear vr just fine with note 9. you have to push the phone in a little hard and it will work. some of my friends and i have been using it like that since launch and there's no damage to the phone although it clips a bit too hard to the screen. if you dont feel comfortable with that, use a metal nail filer on the insides of adapter to loosen it up and it will work even with a tempered on.
and lmao are we supposed to pay another 10k for a new gear vr just because you guys are too incompetent to give an adapter? just give us the option to buy and import the part from samsung US and we are sorted.
Samsung india doesn't give a shit about Note 9 users or VR. Can we pay to have the adapter imported from US? and dont give me that bullshit that it's not compatible, am able to use VR just fine after using a metal nail filer to slim down the adapter. i have no idea how they released a flagship and expect people to not use VR. should've just gone for google daydream.
