ASUS ZenFone AR review: A 'better' Tango phone doesn't mean much


ASUS's ZenFone AR is the second Tango phone on the market, and it's a big improvement for people itching to try augmented reality. It's markedly more powerful than last year's LenovoPhab2 Pro, it brings a much better camera, and is compact enough...

Support for both Daydream VR and Google Tango ; Great display ; Impressive audio quality ; Surprisingly good camera ; Solid performance, even with Tango apps

ASUS's ZenUI feels like overkill ; Disappointing battery life ; Many Tango experiences miss the mark ; Not compelling if you're not interested in Tango

Lenovo's Phab2 Pro might have been first, but the ZenFone AR's superior hardware makes it the best Tango device yet. That's not really saying much, though: The Tango experience isn't much better than it was a year ago, and there still isn't much there...

Asus’ ZenFone AR is both futuristic and behind the curve


AR and VR together in one phone

Nice, bright display ; Supports both Tango AR and Daydream VR ; Good camera

Poor battery life ; Not water resistant ; AR apps aren’t compelling

The ZenFone AR phone is a nice phone, and it’s impressive what Asus has managed to do with the Tango requirements. But the AR in the phone itself is just okay, and the “AR” attached to its name won’t have staying power. Soon phones will just have...

Asus ZenFone AR


The unlocked Asus ZenFone AR puts Google Tango in an accessible form factor with solid hardware, but the AR experience still feels unpolished, and the price is high for what you get.

Fun AR apps and games. Sharp Quad HD display. Solid performance. Good battery life. High-quality audio. No bloatware.

Underwhelming Tango apps. Heavy UI layer. Pricey.

For $699, the Asus ZenFone AR is a solid phablet that serves as a showcase for the potential of AR. The slimmed-down design and relatively powerful hardware make it more accessible to the average user than the Phab 2 Pro, but it also costs $200 more....

Zenfone AR review: A better phone for Tango AR but far from perfect


The Zenfone AR is the only phone to deliver support for Google's Tango AR and Daydream VR platforms, but is it a reality-bending beast or a dud?

Runs Tango AR and Daydream VR apps. ; Incredible screen with an array of color options.

Design is kind of meh, with big bezels and an old-school home button. ; Camera is disappointing for taking actual photos. ; Awful battery life, especially when using it for AR.

If it wasn’t for Tango, it would be hard to recommend the the Zenfone AR at all. At $650 through ( and unlocked through Amazon), it’s priced in line with the LG G6 and HTC U11, and significantly higher than OnePlus 5, all of which offer better designs,...

How the Asus ZenFone AR will bend your reality


Depth-sensing cameras and high-end specs add up to a lot of Android potential. If only there were more AR/VR apps.

Asus ZenFone AR (ZS571KL) Smartphone Review


Enhanced Reality. Asus's ZenFone AR combines Augmented Reality with Virtual Reality: it is, after all, the first smartphone ever certified for Google Tango as well as Daydream. The most interesting question is whether or not its AR- and VR-features...

AR and VR compatible ; high-quality sturdy case ; fast UFS 2.0 storage ; LTE Cat. 11 ; WQHD OLED display ; decent camera ; high performance

very expensive ; only few Tango apps available ; no hybrid Dual-SIM slot ; short battery life

No doubt: the ZenFone AR is the first smartphone to run Google’s augmented reality Tango apps smoothly. However, given the relatively low selection of apps (around 30) - most of which are gimmicks to boot - in its current state Tango is far from being...

ASUS ZenFone AR Tango Phone Review


This is SlashGear's ASUS ZenFone AR Review - complete with Google Tango onboard. This is a review of both the device and the AR - reviewed together and separately. While the device's full worth does take Tango into account, we've also considered the...

Has a super bright and sharp display ; Unique camera system onboard (thanks to Tango spec req.) ; Phone body has a no-frills premium build ; Battery life is generous (when not using AR) ; Has Google Tango AR inside

Tango app selection lacking ; Retail price a bit high for non-AR users ; Some AR apps drain battery fairly quick

There are several versions of the ASUS ZenFone AR out on the market today. One has 6GB Ram and 64GB internal storage that costs $600. That version has GSM connectivity and is available through Amazon. Another version also works with GSM SIM...

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...

Quick performance ; ZenUI affords a lot of customization ; Only phone with both Tango (AR) and Daydream (VR)

Heats up very easily ; Battery life is awful ; Camera is very inconsistent with color capture; details sometimes as well ; Confusing menu layouts, with no useful search option ; Price pits it against some of the best in smartphones today
