The Samsung Gear VR is one of the easiest ways to experience virtual reality, but some users are learning that convenience comes with its costs.
Owners of Samsung phones such as the S6, S6 Edge, S7, and S7 Edge are reporting that Oculus app is destroying their phone s battery life.
Samsung phone owners have been writing about the problem on Oculus forums, on Reddit forums, and in emails to Gizmodo.
The Samsung phone owners say their phone s CPU is running really high, even when the Oculus app is closed, and it s preventing the device from going to sleep.
The strain on the processor is burning through the phone s battery ridiculously fast.
Many users are reporting more than half of their battery being drained in just a few hours with the Oculus VR app installed and running in the background.
