Xiaozhai BOBOVR Z5 review

The Xiaozhai BOBOVR Z5 is a virtual reality smartphone headset made by Xiaozhai, a manufacturer based in China. The manufacturer also produces the Xiaozhai BOBOVR Z4.

This Google Cardboard VR headset is compatible with both iPhone and Android smartphones with display sizes between 4 and 6 inches. Depending on the size of the smartphone, the field of view (FOV) ranges from 96° to 120°.

Users appreciate the wide FOV which offers an immersive experience. The overall opinion of users is fairly positive for the price point, especially regarding the comfort of the design.

However, although the VR headset was designed to work with Daydream, some users found that it was not the case.

BOBOVR Z5 main features

  • IPD and lens-to-eye adjustment: the design adjusts to the user’s sight.
  • Balanced HMD design and soft foam for comfort: reduces fatigue, and provides a comfortable user experience.
  • Built-in adjustable headphones: provides audio for a more immersive user experience.
  • Third-party controller compatibility: users may use a Daydream-compatible controller (not included) for a more intuitive user experience.
