Vision Pro in the practical test: Joanna Stern from The Wall Street Journal

You can find Joanna Stern's Vision Pro test report on The Wall Street Journal's YouTube channel and embedded below this paragraph. She tried out Apple's Spatial Computer for 24 hours and e.g. For example, you can cook with it, make FaceTime calls, work, watch films and record spatial video (3D videos). Their conclusion is that the device has the usual problems of a new product: too heavy, too little battery life, not enough good apps. But she also sees the potential of the device and the advantages of using a mobile computer without having to hold a smartphone in her hands.

Vision Pro Review: Nilay Patel from The Verge

Nilay Patel's experience report is somewhat more critical and philosophical than Joanna Stern's practical test. The video, produced for The Verge, puts a greater focus on Apple's vision for using a computer that sits on your face. And what consequences that might bring with it. But practical use is also addressed, including both the heavy weight of the device and the fact that you can ruin your hairstyle with both fastening mechanisms (Solo Knit Band and Dual Loop Band). Overall, the Vision Pro is treated much more critically, which is of course justified given the high price. There are also comparisons with other VR headsets.

Vision Pro Unboxing: Marques Brownlee unpacks

If you've seen the two videos above, then you've probably noticed the FaceTime calls that were held between three people. And the third person in the group was Marques Brownlee, probably the best-known smartphone reviewer on YouTube. He also received a Vision Pro to test. His first video for the new Apple device is about unboxing, i.e. opening the packaging and taking it out and explaining the scope of delivery. Among other things, the $200 travel case is on display, which is reminiscent of early Apple accessories from the 80s and 90s. The actual use will then follow in further videos, which will probably appear over the next few days and weeks.

Vision Pro at a glance: iJustine offers a little bit of everything

If you want to have various aspects of the Apple Vision Pro summarized in one video, you can also watch iJustine's Vision Pro review. It combines unboxing with a technical overview, practical use and a test of various apps. Marques Brownlee (see previous paragraph) is also present in their FaceTime phone call - along with Brian Tong (see next paragraph). The FaceTime rating was significantly better than in the first two videos, so it's clearly a matter of taste. One thing that wasn't addressed in the previous three videos is guest mode for other Vision Pro users - but the topic is covered in iJustine.

Apple Vision Pro review: almost an hour with Brian Tong

The longest video in this collection comes from the aforementioned technology YouTuber Brian Tong. At just under 55 minutes, it probably offers the longest first insight into how to use the Apple Vision Pro. He goes into the setup, the gesture and Siri operation, various apps and their use, Vision Pro Gaming, FaceTime, films, spatial video and other media, the system's teething problems and additional points about the technology use. Brian Tong's conclusion is that Apple's first spatial computer is a luxury item that he likes to use, but that it is not made for the general public.
