Samsung has a huge success with the gear vr + S7 edge because it's 5.5" and the VR option is cheap

Speaking of that, I actually have an S6+GearVR (the S6 was a very expensive mistake). The Gear VR has made it easier to accept being stuck with the S6. The only problem is there is still not a lot of VR content, and most of it costs money. With the Gear VR, you are locked into Samsung/Oculus content (I'm sure there are ways to sideload things, but it seems like a hassle). I can see the pixels, but the field of view isn't too bad. I experimented with Google Cardboard before, and it was not nearly as complete and satisfying as the Gear VR experience.
I will also say that the S6 hardware and build quality is exceptional. I underestimated Samsung. However, the software is still pretty bad, the Touchwiz slowdowns are real and it's bloated as hell with crap I don't need.
