Are grainy images normal?

I got my Oculus Quest on launch day and I mostly love it but since this is my first VR headset I'm not certain what is normal to expect for screen quality.  When using it, the resolution seems poor compared to TV's and other game systems I've used.  There are sometimes jagged edges and images are grainy.  If this is normal, it's definitely not a deal breaker for me--I know VR is still a developing technology and the Quest has a mobile chip. It's just the game play images I've seen seem sharper and I've adjusted the straps on my Quest to the point where I can get it any clearer. 

If this is normal, just out of curiosity are there any PC headsets on the market that look more clear like the upcoming Valve Index?

    I guess you see the screendoor effect. Absolutely normal.

    Yeah I'm new to VR too and had the same experience as you. In this post HD era where have 4 and even 8k TVs I was expecting pin sharp visuals, but we've got to remember VR is still a fairly new tech in those terms, so it might be a few iterations till we have something as sharp as we're used to. 

     It's noticeable, but not a deal breaker. Loving the Quest so far.

    put your face 1 inch from your hdtv and you will see each pixel just like in the quest

    I'll try that, as soon as I find a headstrap.
