VR compatible – Virtual Reality is the use of computer technology to create a simulated environment. So user or a person can immerse and interact with 3D (three-dimensional) worlds. Although this concept is not new and it was first introduced by Google as Google Cardboard. Later many smartphone companies started manufacturing VR headsets at a cheap price. 

We can experience Virtual Reality (3D world) on our smartphone all we need is a VR headset and VR compatible phone. You can buy or get a VR headset from Amazon or from any local market for under $10. But if you’re smartphone is not VR compatible then you can’t 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 some easiest way to check if your phone supports VR or Not.

If you’re planning to Buy a Smartphone then you need to check these things before buy.

Requirements For Virtual Reality.
  • Gyroscope
  • Magnetic Field Sensor
  • NFC (optional)
  • Internal Compass (recommended)

These are basically sensors of smartphones and many smartphones don’t come with these. So if you want to experience virtual reality then don’t forget to check this sensor’s on the Phone Box. Or if you’re buying Best Budget Smartphone online then check specification on GSMArena Site.

But if you already have an Android smartphone then, here are three methods to check Phone 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.

Nowadays every smartphone comes with a YouTube application if your’s not then download it via Google Play. Only a few people know that we can experience 3D on YouTube Videos. And this is the first and easiest way to check If your smartphone VR Compatible.


Open YouTube Application, and use the search option and search for “360 Videos”. Now play any 360 YouTube Video and you’ll get a cardboard Icon tap on it.

VR Compatible - youtube 360 degree

Done, you have successfully enabled Google Cardboard mod. Now all you need to do is just move your smartphone around 360 degrees. If the video also moves in 360 degrees then you’re good to go. And if the video doesn’t move and stay in the same direction then you’re smartphone lack Gyroscope sensor.

And unfortunately, still, there is no external device available to get unavailable sensors. So you need to buy the latest 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 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 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.
