The headset does not support prescription glasses, but you can adjust the lenses to accommodate myopia down to -7.00.

Huawei VR provides a 95-degree field of view as compared to the Samsung GearVR which provides 96-degrees and HTC Vive which provides 110-degrees.

Huawei is offering up to 4000 free movies, most of which will be in 2D; over 40 free games; 350 panoramic images and around 150 panoramic tours.

As of now, the Huawei VR is only meant for the Chinese market. There have been no details about availability of the price.
