Unlocked Asus ZenFone AR is cheaper on Amazon than the Verizon-bound model
If you've already placed your pre-order with Verizon and purchased the Asus ZenFone AR for $649 outright, you probably made a mistake. Amazon now offers the unlocked version of the smartphone for just $599, but there's a catch.
While Verizon sells the 6GB RAM/128GB version of Asus ZenFone AR, Amazon offers the 6GB RAM/64GB ROM variant. Still, if you're the patient type and can afford to spend more, you can get the 8GB RAM/128GB ROM of $699, but it ships within 2 to 4 weeks.
One other aspect worth pointing out is that customers can get the Asus ZenFone AR for no upfront price at Verizon, but they will have to commit to payments of $27 per month for two years.
Keep in mind that the unlocked Asus ZenFone AR does not work on Verizon or any other CDMA carrier in the United States. On the flip side, buying the unlocked version from Amazon will allow you to use the ZenFone AR on any GSM carrier in the country including AT&T and T-Mobile.
