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!

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.
