LG G5 does support VR gear. The quality of the VR support is not at par with the models such as Samsung S7 Edge though. Still you can experience the VR with the headset gear. Here are some of the available options for you for VR gear.

1. LG 360 VR : This gear allows you to view the content in 360 degrees You can also view the content created by others using this gear on their official site.

2. LG 360 Cam : If you wish to create your own 360 images then you should take a look at the 360 cam.

3. LG Smart Controller : This controller is designed for the drones and bot to be controlled for images and videos.

There are some of the non-branded VR gears designed for LG G5 that can be used. In such case however the VR gear will be more generic rather than phone specific feature.
