Asus Zenfone AR Review

Being the first mobile device to support both Tango and Daydream, Google’s AR and VR platforms, the ZenFone AR retails as much less of a niche product than it would have only a few short years ago. Instead, Asus’ newest phone is also their most high-end, and can easily be viewed as a flagship...

It's AR will be superior to Apple's AR by a mile, especially when it has hardware designed to take advantage of it. Plus it has proper software. It has both Tango and Daydream VR. Plus for 600 it comes at a reasonable price for what you are getting. This Corey guy talks about how Google Assistant is missing. Yet like All Androids it's so easy to install a launcher, which will fix that. Corey why a score of 6.5? What are you comparing this device to? Please explain yourself, especially when you have it that score and never stated why it got that score.

Every post you write reads like a classic case of Aspergers Syndrome. Everything from the structure, to your obsession with posing as a source of knowledge despite being proven false on NUMEROUS occasions. You should probably see a doctor and get the proper diagnosis.

Yeah OK, I will believe what ever you say, especially when it comes from an iDiot.

Yes, I'm aware that you can remedy the Google Assistant today screen, I was simply noting that this is a change on the Verizon variant, not that Google Assistant was missing. As for the score, the camera is not very good, the device gets too warm too easily and too often, battery life is awful, and for the price you can get a number of flagships which perform much better in all these categories. Like I say though, if AR is super important to you then you can buy this phone and get good execution in this area, but you'll be sacrificing the aforementioned areas to get it. You can find all this in my conclusion/pros and cons : )
