The Zenfone AR is the worlds first smartphone to include both Tango Augemented Reality and Daydream Virtual Reality. And the good news? Asus have brought it to the Philippines! This hugely capable phone is targeted more at developers and those who live on the bleeding-edge of technology. While augmented reality is hugely interesting, there’s still a long way to go in terms of development and user friendliness.
