In January at CES in Las Vegas, we got our first look at the Asus ZenFone AR. It's the first phone that lets you use Google Tango AR and Google Daydream VR, and on Wednesday we were finally able to get our hands on it to review.

We'll need some time to test the iphone battery replacement , along with all its AR and VR goodies, but it's exciting to see it's available to buy. The ZenFone AR comes in two different unlocked models, one with 64GB of storage and 6GB of RAM for $599 (which converts to £455 or AU$755) and another with 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM for $699, which converts to about £530 or AU$880.

In the US, Verizon will sell an exclusive model with 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM for $648 which converts to £490, AU$815.

See the world in new ways

If you've ever wanted to try virtual or augmented reality, the Asus ZenFone AR is worth a look. It's compatible with Google's Daydream View VR headset and apps and has a revamped tri-camera system that can achieve depth-sensing 3D scanning and augmented reality through Google Tango.

The only other Tango phone in existence is the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, a huge 6-plus-inch monster phone about the size of the Nintendo Switch display sans Joy Cons. Last year, we reviewed the Phab 2 Pro and had mixed feelings about it

The ZenFone AR, however, has a little more going on under the hood. It has a faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor and 6 or 8GB of RAM compared to the 4GB of RAM on the Phab 2 Pro.


It's also smaller than Lenovo's Tango iphone digitizer , with a 5.7-inch screen inside a body that's just a bit taller than the iPhone 7 Plus. The ZenFone AR's normal size is due to a trimmed-down Tango camera design. The "Tri-Cam" system combines motion, depth-sensing and a 23-megapixel camera into a smaller housing on the back. It makes a difference.
