The Apple Vision Pro, with its hefty price tag of $3,500, has a lot of features that surpass the Meta Quest 3. It boasts micro-OLED, high-resolution 4K displays, better hand tracking, eye tracking, and sophisticated materials. However, the Quest 3 holds its own in several key areas.

1. Weight Distribution

The Apple Vision Pro weighs about 1.4 pounds, while the Quest 3 weighs 1.1 pounds. But it’s not just the weight difference that makes the Quest 3 feel lighter. The Meta headset likely has better weight distribution, making it more comfortable to wear for extended periods.

2. Access to Steam Games

The Quest 3 has access to a massive library of mixed-reality and VR games, both from the Quest Store and Steam. The Vision Pro, on the other hand, only has access to 250 Apple Arcade games, which are not as immersive as VR games.

3. Totally Wireless

The Quest 3 is a completely wireless headset, while the Vision Pro requires an external battery pack that adds weight and bulk.

4. Native YouTube and Netflix Apps

The Quest 3 has native YouTube and Netflix apps, while the Vision Pro does not. This makes it much easier to watch videos and movies in VR on the Quest 3.

5. Price

The Quest 3 starts at $499, while the Vision Pro starts at $3,499. This makes the Quest 3 a much more affordable option for most people.

Conclusion

While the Apple Vision Pro has some advantages over the Meta Quest 3, the Quest 3 comes out on top in several key areas, including weight distribution, access to games, wireless connectivity, native apps, and price. If you’re looking for a great VR headset that won’t break the bank, the Meta Quest 3 is the way to go.
