It works well. Recently however I've had an issue on my LG V30 where everything in vr mode is flipped 90 degrees clockwise. I haven't used the vr functions for a long while, but when I tried to do so recently, this bug kept occurring and made vr unusable. If there is a fix out there, please let me know, and I'll be able to bump the rating back up to a four or five stars. In its unusable state, it is currently, and unfortunately, only a one star for me.

To simple. Needs setting menue. It would be nice to be able to disable movement and manually lock the image in position for YT and compatibility with random AR devices for example. It would also be nice to have the full android experience available in this view. It would also be nice to be able to resize the over all output and move its location on the screen to he compatible with random devices.

Two stars for a fun idea and making a successful connection, but it just doesn't pass my bluetooth keyboard through and without that it is pointless. My keyboard works fine everywhere else. Also, the display for the left eye is larger than that for the right and both are shifted from where they are in the standard cardboard viewer app. I received warnings at startup that it was for an old version of Android. Needs work to be useful.
