A head mount should be comfortable enough for long sessions. Look for something with foam cover to rest on your face. Additional adjustment options to tweak lens positioning is a plus.
Field of View
FOV is key for an immersive experience. Google Cardboard has about 90 degrees FOV. Cheap plastic models might tend to have lower field of view, while better models may have 100° or more.
It is important to find a head mount that will fit your smartphone nicely. Some models are flexible enough to support many different sizes.
You can enjoy Virtual Reality even with the cheapest, cardboard type mount but, for a great experience, you should consider higher range models.
