    I'm looking to upgrade to a newer smartphone without paying $800 or so. I've seen several G6's on Ebay for about $150-175 and was wondering if I could watch 3d or VR video on it.

    Thanks.

    Hello!

    This is a great question! This is not a knock on LG by any means, but this is certainly not the phone to get for a solid VR experience. The headset they came out with last year is showing as not compatible with the current G6 model according to their site. Plus, a lot of users complained about total lack of content when it arrived with the G5. I can confirm that the G6 works with some generic VR headsets, but the amount of content/experience is going to vary. The G6 is also NOT Daydream compatible which limits a lot of content choices as well.

    As a word of caution, please be careful using eBay to purchase a device. Especially, if you see ones for $150-175. This is virtually a new flagship device, and if prices are hovering around there, I would be sure to read carefully . I just don't want you to lose out on your money! A G6, even under a bad IMEI should really run you between $300-349 if everything else with the phone is fine.

    Have you looked at the Alcatel Idol 4s? It ships with a VR headset, has decent mid range specs with the inclusion of a crispy 2k display, and is very affordable at $329.99 new on Amazon right now. Alcatel doesn't have a huge VR content library, but it does have YouTube VR which is huge for consumption. Here is a link down below.

    Best of luck!
