VR Compatible Phones List and Check VR Compatibility

VR compatible phones List - Check VR Compatibility

This article will tell you if your smartphone is VR Compatible or not. VR (Virtual Reality) is a simulated experience that can resemble the real world or be completely different. The VR environment is created using computer technology. Thus, users will be able to explore and interact with 3D (three-dimensional) worlds. It is not a new concept, and Google first introduced it with Google Cardboard. Over time, many smartphone companies began manufacturing cheap VR headsets.

Using our smartphones, we can explore virtual reality (3D worlds). VR headsets and VR Compatible phones are all we need. You can purchase a VR headset from Amazon or any local market for under $10. But if your smartphone is not VR Compatible, you won’t be able to watch or experience 3D.

Now you must be thinking, and many smartphone users ask, “Is my phone VR compatible?” So in this article am going to tell you the easiest way to check if your phone supports VR or Not.

Before buying a Smartphone, you need to check the following for VR compatibility.

Requirements For Virtual Reality.
  1. Gyroscope
  2. Magnetic Field Sensor
  3. NFC (optional)
  4. Internal Compass (recommended)

These sensors are required to experience VR, but many smartphones lack them. So for virtual reality experiences, make sure you check the sensors on the Phone Box. You can also check specs on GSMArena if you’re purchasing a Smartphone online.

If you already own an Android smartphone, then here are three ways to check if that phone is VR Compatible or not. But if you don’t have enough time to do that, you can check VR compatible phones List.

Method 1: Check VR compatibility using the YouTube App.

YouTube is now available on every smartphone. Install it on your smartphone via Google Play if it isn’t. Most people are unaware that we can watch YouTube videos in 3D. It is the easiest way to determine if your smartphone is VR capable.

Search for “360 Videos” in the YouTube application by using the search option. Then, play any 360 YouTube video, and you’ll see a cardboard icon appear on it. Tap on that icon.

VR Compatible - youtube 360
VR Compatible - youtube 360 degree

You have successfully enabled Google Cardboard mod. Now all you need to do is move your smartphone around 360 degrees. You’re good to go if the video also moves in 360 degrees. If the video does not move and remains in the same direction, your smartphone lacks a Gyroscope sensor.

Unfortunately, no external device is available to retrieve sensors that are not available. So, it would be best if you got a smartphone with a gyroscope sensor.

Method 2: Use Sensor Box App to Check VR Support.

If you’re unable to understand how to check, VR is Compatible or not using YouTube App. Or I can assume that you don’t have fast internet to play and check the video. Then here is the simplest way to check; all you need is a sensor Box Application.

Get Sensor Box Application.

So basically sensor box application is used to check the available sensors of your smartphone. And as I mentioned, the main sensor required to check is the Gyroscope sensor; you can check availability using the app. Open the app and check the 6th no’s the sensor. If there is a red sign on that, then the Phone is not VR Compatible. And if there is no sign, then you can tap and check for more confirmation.

Method 3: VR compatible Phone List.

Here is the complete list that allows you to check if your smartphone is VR compatible or not. If your smartphone is not on this list, please try the above method to check or confirm. Or, you can comment.
