.... be more humble about it considering that they are in fact piggy backing off of the success of many "lads."
But Gear VR is not the same price as the GO. You can't assume the same adoption rate. It's also possible that many potential GO consumers who owned iPhones already bought a PSVR or switched to a Samsung phone.
Zenbane said:Lets see, I'll do some super rough math here to make my guess:
- 55 million Galaxy S7 phones have been sold
- 5 million Gear VR units have been sold total (2016, 2017, 2018 combined)
- Based on these estimates, 10% of Galaxy S7 users will buy a Gear VR
- 216 million iPhones were sold in 2017
- 10% of 216 million is about 21.5 million
- Gear VR is powered by more than the Galaxy S7
- These are just estimates, combining single year with multi-year.
- This does not account for returns, defects, etc.
I would say that in 2018 around 4.5 million GO units will be sold. Assuming they release no later than March 31st.

Zenbane seems to think OGO is in the very same potition GearVR was in when it launched. The difference is GearVR still exists as a direct alternative to OGO at half the price. Daydream now exists and is cheaper than GearVR open to more mobile phones than GearVR and in direct competition to GearVR.
Here we go again....
Ill get the popcorn.
What's this toxx thing all about?
