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?

It should can work. But maybe it needs an external device to converte LG Phone Signal. Like LG Phone hdmi converter. Maybe you can have a try !

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.
