Wikipedia for our device says yes.

However, on Cyanogenmod, Phone Tester app shows no gyroscope when you click on sensors:

Can anyone on stock rom test? It might just be cyanogenmod.

The only reason I'm curious is because the 4.3 leaked camera is reportedly allowing many non-nexus devices to have a working photosphere. Photosphere won't work if the gyroscope isnt recognized / working. If it is indeed just cyanogenmod, I'm going to petition @mdmower to get the gyroscope working so I can get photosphere working

No gyroscope showing on my stock. No unlock or s-off.

Damn, Wikipedia lied to me. Some other sites list this device as having a gyroscope as well. Wonder how that misinformation went around.

It kinda worked. It was extremely glitchy. Seemed like it didn't exist. l cannot clarify what this was for sure.

According to the "hardware info" app, the Dinc4G... Doesn't have a gyro! (the same app does show a gyro on my gf's Sensation)

Here 's a snap that list all 5 hw sensors that we have:
