You are required to have a working facebook account to use the device, despite having a FB account in long good standing, I had not used it for some years, and it had been locked. I am unable to activate the headset at all. Facebook customer service is non-existant, if they decide to lock your account, you have no resource to resolve the issue, their decision is final.
Facebook's terms and conditions require that you use your real name to make an account, and ID details, this means that you cannot simply create a new facebook account without the risk of loosing access to not only the device, but any software purchased for it.
There a great number of people in a similar situation posting on popular forums such as reddit, and that number is increasing at an alarming rate, either having facebook accounts locked and loosing access to large game libraries and the headset, or simply not being able to get the headset working in the fist place. This may also disable existing Quest 1, Rift and CV headsets once the existing Oculus account is irreversibly linked with a facebook account.
If you can live with having a £300+ piece of hardware and associated software being arbitrarily rendered useless with no recourse, maybe the quest 2 is for you, otherwise look for a HMD from another manufacturer without such opaque and destructive practices.
I'm still debating if I should sign up to one of the worst websites on the internet just to use this VR headset.
Sure its a good headset as far as I got with the setup at least the image quality was great. Just a shame I am not able to use it as Facebook automatically blocked all my attempts to get my account setup. I have had to return it as I am simply not able to use it. Very dissapointed.
So nearly perfect, but having kicked Facebook and its at best murky treatment of my personal data into touch - I now find myself having to sign up again... To ' improve services.' flimsy. As their vp points out, lots of company's make you do it. True. But few make you sign up to a toxic social platform to do it.
Shame.. I'll have to save up for one that doesn't sell my data.
First, I'll get the bad points out of the way, and unfortunately they're quite significant. The strap, to put it bluntly, is awful. It's flimsy, difficult to adjust and offers very little support. When the 3rd party efforts start showing up I'll definitely look into replacing it (I think the official Elite Strap is unreasonably expensive, plus currently out of stock everywhere).
The facial-cushion is also large downgrade. It's made of a cheaper material which is uncomfortable, with a rougher texture and it is much less breathable - I found my glasses instantly fogged up which wasn't a problem in the old headset. Again, I hope third parties will make better facial cushions.
Speaking of glasses, I found wearing them to be a squeeze even using the provided spacer, again this wasn't a problem with the old headset. The headset on the whole is very unfriendly for glasses users. I think I will eventually buy some prescription lens inserts.
The IPD adjustment now has three distinct settings only, no smooth slider for making granular adjustments like the Quest 1, so if your eyes sit in between the three settings you won't get the best image quality. This is also not adjustable while wearing the headset, so you have to take it off to switch between the three IPD settings, meaning you can't see the difference it makes in real-time.
The controllers, although improved in many ways, also seem to be made of cheaper material. Whereas the old Quest controllers had a bumpy, rubbery grip, the new ones have a smooth plastic which makes them feel they're going slip out of my hand easily, especially when playing Beat Saber which requires fast hand movements and can often cause sweating. Not a great combination!
Lastly, there has been much controversy about the Facebook account requirement but to be honest I personally don't really care about this.
Now the positives. The headset itself is noticeably lighter. The controllers are larger, which makes them feel more comfortable in the hand. The controller battery-life seems to be improved also - after a few hours they were still showing as 100% somehow.
One of the main improvements is the screen resolution. You can barely see individual pixels any more, the screen-door effect is all but gone, everything is crisp and smooth. Black levels suffer from changing the screen from OLED to LCD, so darkest blacks are now grey which nearly spoils the experience, but the pixel density goes some way in making up for this. The screen refresh rate is also 90hz now, although by default it still runs as 72hz for now. However you can change a beta setting to run the home environment in 90hz and the difference in smoothness is surprisingly noticeable, so it will be a huge upgrade when games are able to use this mode.
The other headliner is the much improved hardware specs. It will likely take some time for developers to take true advantage of the huge bump in power, but some apps have already seen upgrades to varying degrees. We should hopefully start seeing some generational leaps in graphics over the next few months.
I would say if you're planning on upgrading from the original Quest then it might be worth waiting for the next iteration. If it's your first standalone headset then it's a no brainer - what you're getting for your money is truly amazing value but you'll have to live with some compromises.
