Product Summary

LG made it’s debut into the Virtual Reality market with a controversial piece of kit which differed from most other major competitors. An experience very different to the Samsung Gear VR, the LG360 VR is worn like a pair of glasses with it’s own internal display. Unfortunately though, unless you currently own a specific LG phone (listed in compatibility below) you won't be able to use the device at all.

LG have taken a completely different approach to VR. Whereas some feel that LG’s effort could have been better, others praise them for their intuitive entry into the market. Currently the headset is priced in a much higher price bracket over it’s over phone competitors and even though it features its very own internal display it still relies on a phone to be able to run. This makes the target market for this device very unclear as it’s neither an entry level viewer nor a professional grade headset. It’s somewhere in between.

LG have somehow managed to pull off a headset which doesn't look two bad. It’s small, compact and looks pretty stylish in it’s sleek silver finish. By being so small and compact, LG have opened themselves up to some criticism over how comfortable it is along with aspects to light leaking. All this aside, the headset has an attractive design that will appeal to a mass market of consumers.

It functions similar to how a headset may work in terms of the graphics being completely internal and it’s drivers being run through an external device (but in this case the external device is an LG Phone with a Type C usb port. Luckily the headset also comes complete with additional sensors which make the VR experience much more reliable and immersive overall.

LG have so far not stated that the headset could work with any other future phones but does give you the ability to use headphones with a 3.5mm jack within the headset itself (cables and phones are not provided). There’s also, currently, no native apps or additional add ons for the headset to add to its immersive qualities. None the less, if you posses an LG device and have the money to spend, this will prove itself the fun and quirky headset for you.
