Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg thinks his company's Quest VR headset is a better product than the Apple Vision Pro—and said so in a video shot on his company's VR headset and uploaded to Instagram, a social media company that Meta has owned since 2012.

"I expected that the Quest would be the better value for most people since it's really good and it's like seven times less expensive," he said in the video, which was shot in his living room. "But after using it, I don't just think that Quest is the better value. I think that the Quest is the better product—period."

In the video, he referenced the big difference in price. The Meta Quest 3, released in 2023, retails for $499. Meanwhile, the Apple Vision Pro starts at $3,500.


Zuckerberg said he thinks Quest's screen compares favorably to Apples on some—but not all—specs.

"Our field of view is wider and I found our screen to be brighter also," he said in the clip. "I also noticed that Apple's headset has this motion blur as you move around, while Quest is just a lot crisper."

But he did concede that Apple's screen has a higher resolution than Quest's, before jumping back into talking about the ways in which he thinks it falls short. One of the big gripes he has with Apple's new device: Its somewhat short list of content integrations.

"You know we've been working with studios, building virtual and mixed reality games and other content for a long time now," Zuckerberg said. "And if you want to watch YouTube or play Xbox on a big screen anywhere you go, that's only available on Quest for now."

Curiously enough, Zuckerberg side-stepped one of the features at least some users wish the Apple Vision Pro had: VR porn. But the Google results speak for themselves. Many people have figured out how to watch porn on the Meta Quest 3 and taken to the internet to share their hacks.


He ended by preemptively addressing the angry Apple fans who might take issue with his candidness.

"Now look, I know that some fanboys get upset whenever anyone dares to question if Apple is gonna be the leader in a new category," he said. "But the reality is, is that every generation of computing has an open and a closed model. And yeah, in mobile, Apple's closed model won—but it's not always that way."
