The gloves are off when The Zuck uses Apple’s Vision Pro

Meta chief Mark Zuckerberg took to Instagram on Tuesday to knock Apple’s new Vision Pro headset while praising his own company’s Quest 3 alternative.

In a video that is 3 minutes 40 seconds long and shot entirely on Quest 3, The Zuck just has two Positive things can be said about the Vision Pro, praising its higher screen resolution and “very good” eye tracking. For the rest, he praised Meta’s Quest 3 headset while tearing apart Apple’s rival device, which launched earlier this month.

“I finally tried Apple’s Vision Pro and I have to say, I was hoping the Quest would be better value for most people because it’s so good and seven times cheaper, but after using it… I think the Quest is the best. better products, period,” Zuckerberg said at the start.

In addition to that huge price difference — $500 for the Quest 3 compared to $3,500 for the Vision Pro — Meta’s CEO also claims that he finds his device more comfortable to wear, in part because it weighs 120 grams less than Apple’s product. He also noted how there are no cables to get in the way, unlike the Vision Pro, which comes with an external battery.

“Apple’s eye tracking is great,” Zuckerberg said, noting that Meta plans to bring the same technology to future Quest headsets after not including it in the Quest 3.

The Meta boss also said how the Quest’s library of immersive content is “much deeper, we’ve been working with studios, building virtual mixed reality games and other content for a long time,” although Apple is expected to catch up here with more. developers are starting to get interested in Vision Pro.

Now, when you watch the video, keep in mind that this reviewer is not just any reviewer. That’s Mark Zuckerberg, the head of a company that is investing huge amounts of money in virtual reality and the so-called “metaverse”, so they really don’t want to see Apple come in and take all the glory.

If you’re a potential customer torn between the Quest 3 and the Vision Pro, the wise thing to do would be to seek out a review from a neutral party rather than relying on the person at the helm of the company that makes the product, although in fairness Zuckerberg does make some valid points. And try both devices before you buy, if possible.

While many believe that Apple’s Vision Pro could indeed threaten Meta’s efforts to succeed its Quest device, others argue that Apple’s entry into the market could also increase interest in face-based computers and ultimately lead to more headset sales for Meta.
