Whether you want to play video games in solitude or with others, the Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset is everything you need! If you don’t feel like going to the gym, you can use the VR glasses to break a sweat for a fitness workout. In case you just want to sit back and relax, simply use your Quest 2 to watch your favorite movies. By the way, have you ever had the desire to discover your inner Jedi and fight with a lightsaber? No problem. The device includes a free copy of the popular VR game Beat Saber. So get ready for a fun and futuristic gaming experience where you can slash boxes flying towards you to the beat. If you just don’t feel like wielding that elegant weapon from a more civilized age – as Obiwan Kenobi would put it – you can choose from hundreds of VR games that offer something for everyone. Rest assured, once you try the Oculus Quest 2, you’ll find it hard to put the controllers down!

Design and Comfort

The Oculus Quest 2 looks pretty similar compared to its original version. The biggest change, however, is the color, which has been changed from black to white. Aside from the color, the Meta Quest 2 is sturdy, ergonomically shaped, and hence fits like a glove when worn. Moreover, the Oculus Quest 2 is held by two soft fabric straps that go once over and once around the wearer’s head and reliably keep the headset in position. The battery, which is built into the front, caused discomfort during longer gaming sessions with the previous Oculus version. This issue has been minimized with the Quest 2. The overall weight of 503 grams reduces the weight of the device by 68 grams and makes it noticeably less front-heavy and more comfortable sitting on the head. The built-in IPD (interpupillary distance) can be adjusted to one of three settings, allowing the user to choose between an IPD of 58, 63, or 68 mm to meet the needs of different users.

Storage and Battery Life

Facebook / Meta has increased the storage capacity by 64 GB, so the base model now has a total of 128 GB. We think this amount of storage should be enough for the average gamer, but hardcore gamers should consider the 256 GB version. Unfortunately, there is no other way to get more storage, so you should make sure that you buy the model that suits your needs best. As for battery life, we aren’t thrilled about the fact that games have to be interrupted after 2 to 3 hours for a recharge. So we hope that there will be improvements in the future.

Display and Sound

As for the display, we have great news for our enthusiastic gaming community! The Oculus Quest 2 Advanced All-in-One VR headset comes with an improved resolution panel that offers 50% more pixels than its predecessor thanks to the Snapdragon XR2 processor. The higher resolution of the panel translates directly into ultra-sharp image definition and a more exciting gaming experience. In addition, games can now run at 90 Hz all the way up to 120 Hz (the original Quest ran at 72 Hz), making gaming even more realistic and immersive!

The Oculus Quest 2 has two built-in speakers, located on the left and right at ear level. The sound quality is quite good, but we found you can improve it even more by simply plugging a pair of headphones into the Quest 2’s 3.5 mm jack. Alternatively, you can also connect your Bluetooth headphones to the headset. In our opinion, it’s great to have these additional audio options, but the speakers already deliver a much better sound than the original Quest. Plus, the cinematic 3D positional sound makes the gaming experience even more stunning and immersive!

Touch Controllers

The Oculus Quest 2 controllers are just as well-designed as the original version. They only differ in color and in slightly larger dimensions. The headset’s cameras detect them effectively and reliably, and their shape gives a great feeling when you hold them in your hands. Both are pleasantly light and weigh 150 grams each, including batteries. The controllers can run on AA batteries, which gives them an excellent lifespan. So you can play for hours without worrying about the battery running out. In this generation of touch controllers, not only the haptic elements have been revised and improved, but also the vibration feedback is now even smoother and more sensitive.

Motion and Hand Tracking

Like its predecessor, the Meta Quest 2 features four built-in, inside-out tracking cameras. Honestly, we are absolutely blown away by how flawlessly the positioning feature works. It’s most likely the best available on the standalone VR market. Another big advantage of the Quest 2 is the built-in hand tracking. It allows you to control the headset with your bare hands. Even though the hand tracking isn’t quite as precise and fluid as the controller tracking, it works fantastically and feels really impressive.

+ Intuitive controllers

+ Impressive hand tracking

– Short battery life

– Facebook account required


At the moment, the Oculus Quest 2 remains the only headset on the market that offers outstanding performance at such an affordable price point. The top specifications, such as the 4K display with up to 120 Hz, the hand tracking, as well as the fact that it’s easily convertable to a PC VR headset, distinguish the Quest 2 from its competition. However, we noticed a few areas in which there is room for a little improvement. For example, the short battery life and that you can only use the goggles with a Facebook account. Summing up, VR users who don’t have a problem with Facebook collecting and using the data will find a technically sophisticated product at a very reasonable price in the Oculus Quest 2 All-in-One VR headset.
