Great news, Pocketnow fans! LG has partnered up with Pocketnow to give away five VR headsets for the LG G3. You might remember that LG gave away a bunch of these a just a couple of months ago, in select markets. These headsets are basically plastic Google Cardboard variants that are designed for the LG G3. Yes, this is the one time when “plastic” is actually an upgrade.

Our readers will have a chance to win one of these headsets in five different areas of our online presence. Keep in mind, this is just the VR headset, not the phone itself.

First of all, let’s be clear about a couple of things –

1. This is a US/Canada only giveaway. Don’t blame us. Blame FedEx and international shipping tariffs. Seriously, in some cases it’d be cheaper for us to fly there and hand it to you.

2. This particular VR headset is only compatible with the LG G3, specifically. Not just “an LG phone.” This is specifically designed for the LG G3. If you have a different phone, this will not work for you. We’d ask you to sit this one out so an LG G3-toting fan can have a fair shot at it.

So how do you win these things? You’ll have five different opportunities. One each on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, and the Pocketnow Weekly.  Here’s how these will work.

For a chance to win, you must do any of the following:


  1. Follow @Pocketnow on twitter.
  2. Tweet the following: “Hey @Pocketnow. I want the full VR experience with the @LG G3 VR Headset! #VRForMe” <– don’t forget the link.


  1. Like Pocketnow on Facebook.
