Best smartphones for VR in 2019

VR has been around for a while now, but we know there are some people out there who might not have tried it yet.
If you want to see what it's all about, yet you can't or don't want to spend a ton of money on a high end Virtual Reality headset, we thought you might be interested in checking out the most economic option in the market.

You only need 2 things: a cardboard VR viewer and your smartphone.
Since smartphones are constantly changing and improving we are putting together a list of the best phones in 2019 that you can use with your cardboard VR headset.

Before starting you should consider a few key points:

  • It will work with phones that have a gyroscope, you can find about this with a quick search, but pretty much every modern smartphone has one.
  • The usual cardboards work with phones that have a screen size of between 4-6 inches.
  • A good screen resolution is key to make sure your vieweing experience will be optimal. We recommend starting at least from a full HD display with resolution of 1920x1080 pixels.

Below you can find our choices for best smartphones for VR in 2019:

- Samsung Galaxy S10/S10+

- Google Pixel 3/3XL

- Moto Z2 Force

- Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+

- HTC U11+

- LG V30
