    Ambilis maluma ng phone models ngayon. Madaling kalimutan ang zenfone ar kung 44-46k din ang price range ng lg g6+ at htc u11 128gb

    Goodluck Asus With that price.

    It’s really pricey at that point even if you bundle it with power banks. So what’s their selling point here? Are they banking on Daydream and Tango? These 2 technologies are still in a very slow start that only a handful of apps are available. Consumers could only care less for VR and AR since it couldn’t be more what people are expecting. Not to mention that they were not entirely received at this point in time and its popularity is on downhill.

    So, if companies like Asus keeps on making these 2 techs unreachable or impractical to spend money on, success is still at the far horizon and no one can tell yet what will happen next. Looking back at google glasses, its pricey but innovative. Sadly discontinued since it became so expensive and not so practical. It became a failed tech.

    Pass. I don’t need AR tech yet. I want the Zenfone 2 Max, or the Zenfone 4. My Zenfone 5 gave out earlier this year.

    I think the price is not acceptable in the Market, compare to the other brand… even the RAM is more adv. compare to the other.
