Meta Quest 3 Takes on Apple Vision Pro!

Welcome to the Oasis! My name is Mike, and I’m back here in the UK with the Apple Vision Pro. I’ve been using this headset over the past week to really try and get a good feel for what this device is all about. And I think my takeaway so far is that this headset is best used for productivity and watching movie content. Believe it or not, I don’t think the best use case is going outside and using this thing in public. But the fact of the matter is, this headset is insanely expensive at $3,499, which got me thinking – how much of the Apple Vision Pro experience can you get on the Meta Quest 3, which is just $499?

So, I decided to put this to the test and do an Apples to Apples (no pun intended) comparison. I’ve got a list of tasks with me, and we’re going to go through them to see how the Apple Vision Pro handles them compared to the Quest 3. Let’s dive in!

One of the first things I tested was multitasking. On the Apple Vision Pro, I had a bunch of browser windows open, music playing, Twitter, email, text messages, and even the Apple website all visible at once. I could even take an image from the website and place it in my space, rotating it around. The multitasking capabilities were impressive.

On the Quest 3, I could only have three browser windows open at once, but I could still listen to music and have Twitter open. I couldn’t pull images out of the browser like on the Vision Pro, but I could still get some work done.

When it comes to productivity tasks like typing documents, both headsets required a physical keyboard for optimal use. The Vision Pro had a cool feature where I could see a preview screen above the keyboard as I typed, while the Quest 3 also supported a physical keyboard for typing.

Email was another task I tested. The Vision Pro had a dedicated email app, making it easy to access and send emails directly from the headset. On the Quest 3, I had to use the browser to access my email, which was a bit less convenient but still functional.

One of the standout features of the Vision Pro was spatial video, which provided a 3D-like viewing experience. The Quest 3 also supported spatial videos, allowing users to watch them in the headset.

Sending text messages was a breeze on the Vision Pro, thanks to voice commands and a synced US account. On the Quest 3, I could use WhatsApp or Messenger for text messaging, but voice commands were limited to US users.

Watching movies was a great experience on the Vision Pro, with a native Disney Plus app and virtual environments for viewing content. The Quest 3 required an app like Big Screen for movie viewing, but still provided a good viewing experience.

Gaming was where the Vision Pro fell short, with noticeable latency and a disconnected feeling. The Quest 3, on the other hand, had impressive hand tracking capabilities and smooth gameplay.

In conclusion, while the Apple Vision Pro offers a more seamless and capable experience, the Meta Quest 3 provides great value for its price. If you’re interested in trying out VR, AR, or spatial computing, the Quest 3 is a solid choice. I hope you enjoyed this comparison, and if you have any questions, feel free to drop them in the comments below. Don’t forget to like and subscribe for more VR, AR, and spatial computing content.
