Google Cardboard is a kind of a Virtual reality headset. You can buy either Google Cardboard headset or other VR headset based on Google Cardboard design. Virtual reality is not that perfect, it is, but only with expensive hardware like Google Daydream, HTC and Microsoft’s VR handsets. On the other hand, Google Cardboard is very cheap and you get to experience virtual reality at home.

  1. Thanks a lot for compiling this list of compatible phones and the advice in choosing a phone that will work with Google Cardboard! It’s amazing that Google doesn’t supply an easy list on their own website. Most consumers would not know that a gyroscope is required. Thanks for picking up Google’s dropped-ball!
