Which VR Headset should I get?

So back then, I didn't know that my Gear VR wouldn't be compatible with iPhones. I no longer have any Samsung phone to use my Gear VR with. It's about time for an upgrade anyway, but which one should I use? I'm not really a gamer girl and when I do play games, I don't go too crazy with any sort of games. I'm more the type of person who just wants to escape. I mainly used my Gear to watch the videos I had on my phone and movies. Also, I'm not sure if what I used was a part of the Gear or if it's an app I can just download through the headset, but I'd love for whatever I get to have to give me the opportunity to watch my videos or movies in places like the void, or on the moon, or in the Imax theater, because those settings were just fun to watch videos in. That being said, which kind of VR should I get that I don't need Samsung phone for?

    Probably an Oculus Quest would be your best bet.  However, if you are really only interested in VR media then the Go would be a good, less expensive option imho.

    Custom built gaming desktop; i9 9900k (water cooled) oc to 5ghz, gtx 1080 ti, 32 gb 3000hz ram, 1 tb ssd, 4 tb hdd.  Asus  ROG Maximus xi hero wifi mb, StarTech 4 port/4 controller sata powered usb3.0 pcie card, PCI-E PCI Express to USB 3.1 Gen 2 card, Asus VG248QE 1080p 144hz gaming monitor, Oculus Rift cv1 w/2x sensors, Vive Pro w/2.0 base stations/controllers, Quest w/Link and VD wireless (good/close 5Ghz wifi and PC with Ethernet cable to my Router).

    Oculus Go's already listed as a Boxing Day sales item on BestBuy Canada.

    Personally, I'd get the Quest, only because once you have the Go, you'll wish you had the Quest. Even if you aren't a 'gamer', you'll still want Beat Saber, and simple games like that.

    ^^ Beat Saber never really interested me, but there are games almost similar to that that I'm sure I'd like. Better safe than sorry then I guess! Thanks!
