Pico 4 & Meta Quest 2 comparison

The Meta Quest 2 VR headset is among the most popular on the market. Since there is not much else available on the market that compares to Meta's flagship VR headset, options are limited. The Pico 4 VR headset, on the other hand, could be on its way shortly to compete with the Meta Quest 2 VR headset.

This article compares the Meta Quest 2 and the Pico 4 VR headsets' benefits and cons along with key differences to determine which is ideal for you.

1. Design

Meta Quest 2

The Meta Quest 2 features one of the most well-known designs in the VR industry, and it has made some great advances in display and optics. The display, batteries, and processing power are located behind the lenses in front of the VR headset. The Meta Quest 2 has a Fresnel lens optical system, which makes the box larger. Although the battery pack serves to balance the weight, it is front-heavy.

Pico 4

The Pico 4 features a redesigned pancake lens optical system and a next-generation design. Since the lens and display are so close together, the front box is smaller. For improved weight distribution, the built-in battery is located in the back of the headset.

2. The Controllers

Meta Quest 2

The 3rd gen touch controllers are included with the Meta Quest 2. Generally, they feel solid in your hands and well-constructed. The controllers run on AA batteries and have long battery life. Their combined weight of 150 grams is still remarkable, as are the haptics plus feedback. The IR LEDs are positioned in a ring placed in front of your hand.

Pico 4

The Pico 4 has controllers that appear considerably different from both its predecessor, the Meta Quest 2, and the Neo 3 Link. The Pico 4 VR controllers now include a tracking ring that runs diagonally across the top of the device from the top to the bottom. This improves the controllers' tracking precision.
