Giveaway: Win 1of 3 LG G3 Units With VR for G3 Headsets

To help spread awareness for LG’s VR for G3 headsets, we have in our possession three, count ‘em 1, 2, 3 LG G3 headsets to give away. Each is for T-Mobile’s network, so if you are already on T-Mobile or plan on switching to the Uncarrier, these will be a nice little prize for you.

With VR for G3, which is based off of Google Cardboard, G3 owners can experience a somewhat basic virtual reality, complete with games and apps, all of which are available directly from Google Play. The VR for G3 is available directly from LG when you purchase a new G3 and select retailers, plus LG couples a QR code on the box where you can grab a few exclusive VR titles for your enjoyment.

So, if you are interested in winning, let’s get to it.  (more…)
