Will Google Cardboard VR work with all Android 4.4 phones?

I have a LG phone with Android 4.4, but it’s not one of the devices listed as compatible. Will it still work with Cardboard VR kits?

Will Google Cardboard work with my LG Tribute 2 phone?
It should. The specs on that phone are decent but not cutting edge, so some of the more demanding VR apps might not run smoothly.

Before you buy the Cardboard headset/glasses, go to Google Play and see if you can install the official Cardboard app to see if it is compatible. http://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadtop.aspx?c=us&lang=en&prod=hl2270dw_all
If you did not buy a oficiel site, there may not be smart to set the phone snaps into cardbord mode
Looks like you have a good answer already, but here's a link to an Engadget article that explains what Google's Cardboard VR is for those who aren't familiar with it:


On the Google Cardboard site it says it should be compatible with most Android phone with Android 4.1 or higher. I have an LG Volt, and Android 4.4 phone with a 4.7” screen, and it is a good physical fit. However, the motion function won’t work for some reason, which means that you can’t really do anything with Cardboard. The cost is pretty low; I’ve seen some kits for around $20. Perhaps I’m just unlucky, but Cardboard definitely will not work will all devices, even some that are 4.4 like mine.  


Note that I have only tried the official Google Cardboard app. I need to try some of the others and see if they work.
