Just got my Daydream View and tried it out with my Pixel XL, all seems good except I get extreme drift to the right hand side, you can hold down home button for a few seconds to recentre, but I am having to do this about once every 30 seconds. Is there a way of calibrating this, or does it indicate a fault with my phone?

I did, they got me to reset apps download manager and play store, to reset the auto date/time, but it did not make a difference :( just trying to work out if this is normal, or my phone is slightly off?

Might be a daydream software issue. I know my note 7 always had drift using cardboard, but worked fine on gearvr.

Ha, mine drifts to the left.
The battery in my controller finally just died on me today, It seems to have gotten worse the lower the battery got.
I'm hoping it will drift less with a full charge.
