Just a quick video how to easily put the new VR Cover for Samsungs Gear VR (Consumer Version) on. Go ahead and do it this way instead of wrestling with the foam padding directly.
Just make sure you pick the right one. If you have an older Gear VR (the Innovator Edition) it most likely has the old Oculus Rift logo on it. If you have a newer Gear VR that was released in November 2015 or later it has the new Oculus Rift logo on it and is the Consumer Edition that also works with the Samsung Note 5.
