Most virtual reality headsets are super expensive, and they typically only work with one smartphone, so if you want to explore virtual worlds, you have to shell out big bucks for both the VR headset and the phone. Luckily, we’ve got an awesome giveaway for one lucky Digital Trends’ reader: a Sprint LG G3 smartphone and the VR headset for G3.
Even though LG’s G3 is a year old now, and the company has launched its successor the G4, it’s still one of the very best phones that money can buy. The G3’s Quad HD screen and powerful camera with laser autofocus put it ahead of its competitors last year, and really the only spec that’s slightly outdated is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor. Regardless, the G3 is fast and responsive, and our positive feelings for the phone still stand. We gave it our highest Editor’s Choice award when it came out, so the G3 comes highly recommended.
With this deal, not only do you get one of the best flagship smartphones from 2014, but you also get LG’s take on Google’s DIY VR headset Cardboard. The VR headset is made of plastic, which is a step up from Google’s Cardboard, and you don’t have to put it together either. Much like Cardboard, VR for G3 uses a neodymium ring magnet that, when used in tandem with the G3’s magnetic gyroscope sensor, allows you to switch between applications and navigate menus by tilting your head a certain way. The VR headset even comes with Robobliteration, a VR game, as a free download.
