    This might be considered necroposting, but I will leave this here in the hope that someone finds it usefull and stops tearing at his/her hair, like I did with the aforementioned bug. After countless tests and even fooling around with:

    Input.compensateSensors = false;
    Input.gyro.updateInterval = 0.01F;

    I finally tracked down the cause of the gyro lag on google vr and specific android devices. DISABLE automatic brightness setting on your phone ( When you put the phone inside the vr headset the sensor constantly reads the small changes in screen brightness and alters screen dimming resulting in lag from the gyro sensor. This worked on a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Xiaomi Redmi 4 Prime and a Samsung Galaxy S7 which all had the same problem.

    Problem still exists in Unity 2017.3.0f3 on Android Samsung Galaxy S6. Any workaround? @JAMES-DECARLO : Do you have a solution? I tried with Input.gyro.rotationRate, it is faster but it drift really fast...

    Also seen with Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL devices running Android 8.0 on Unity 2017.2.0f3.

    Any updates on when can we expect a fix for this? It is affecting flag ship Android phones.
