There are more than 200 phones so this is not a complete list but it will really help you finding a gyro supported phone.

Gyroscope is really important and useful for virtual reality headsets. If you have a smartphone without gyroscope. You can view 3D movies but since you don't have gyroscope, You can't actually enjoy virtual reality games/experiences but only 3D movies. Gyroscope senses motion of head and thus will be important if you have ideas of buying a virtual reality headset.

You can re-check to confirm gyro availability in a phone through GSMArena by looking into phone specification.  I may update the list directly with GSM Arena spec page later on.
