Obviously the Oculus Quest as a stand-alone headset will not have as much horsepower as a PC but that does not mean the Quest is a under-powered VR-headset. In fact, even with a “mere” Snapdragon 835, not even the fastest mobile chip out there, the result is impressive.

One aspect the Oculus Quest comes behind it’s brother the Oculus Rift S is the refresh rate which is 72 Hz instead of 80 Hz (which itself is a step down from the 90 Hz of the original (Oculus Rift), not that I had any issue with it.

The headset comes with a long USB-C charge cable. This is a USB 2.0-cable so should only be used for charging. The headset has a battery that holds it charge around 2-3 hours depending what you play with it.
