    You need something that is compatible with Cardboard for any of Google's current efforts. For Gear VR, a Samsung S6 series, S7 series, or Note5 or 7(NEW MODEL ONLY). LG G5 has its own system.

    Here's some links. https://support.google.com/cardboard..._topic=6295044

    Do you mean Software maybe? What type of phone do you have and what are you looking to do?

    I have the honor 5. I really just want to try out VR. When i say hardware I mean like parts inside the phone. Accelerometer, and things like that. Thanks for the answers but not really what I was looking for.

    Ah yes. I thought maybe you were referring to what apps people use to view in vr. Such as 360 or Plain Vr. Those are what I use but I also use a Windows Phone so..

    To answer the clarification, most modern Android phones have the accelerometers needed to get positioning. The higher density the screen, the better - the resolution is cut in half due to the stereoscopic viewing. The faster the proc and more RAM, better.

    Google cardboard will work for you. As a side note cardboard also works for Apple phones.
