Notes :
  • low persistence is better than full persistence (no motion blur)
  • external sensors are better than the phone internal sensors (higher frequency, less latency, less drift, more precise)
  • very low latency (< 20 ms) is very important (less nauseous, world feels solid)
  • field of view is very important for immersion (80° is a minimum)

Latency on Android should be ~70-75 ms at best, for comparison the Oculus DK2 has < 20 ms and the Oculus DK1 had 30-50 ms latency. Sensors reading rate is generally 100-200 Hz on smartphones and 1000 Hz using external sensors, the corresponding latency is 5-10 ms vs 1 ms respectively.
