    Well, it's free, so once it's available, I have nothing to lose if it doesn't fit my Nexus 6 quite right. Except shipping cost. Bitches better not be charging $5 in shipping or something.

    Interesting, perhaps it may work with my Alcatel. I'll have to get my email in there, I'd love to have one.

    And if it doesn't work, I can give it away here.

    I think it is made specifically to fit the nexus 6 :)

    This one is by OnePlus and is designed for their devices, but the site says it can fit up to 6 inch screens.

    No, but what you aren't getting is that the V2 from Google had the Nexus 6 in mind. This is the OnePlus version of the V2, which means it was made with the OnePlus in mind. It's confusing because they're calling it V2 as well, but this is definitely their own version and not Google's.

    Its slightly thinner, and they changed the lenses to go with that, im not sure why, but yea, whatever. I would think that would be a worse change, but they probably know better, but perhaps they got those lenses cheaper, who knows worse comes worse, get it for the button and make your own v2 (if cheap enough).

    Well, the cut off for it is the very end of the day on the 29th, so I went ahead and tossed my application in. If I get it, it will be nice to play with a bit before V2 launches.

    Has anyone here tried Google Cardboard? Is this much of an upgrade from it?
