Google’s Project-Tango is still in its early days and there are not many smartphones manufacturers which can proudly boast of having a Tango-enabled device on their roster. There is, however, a valid reason behind this scenario.
The technology appears to be half-baked as of now and the lack of interest the buyers had in the likes of smartphones like the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro has let the big guns wait for a while.
Asus, however, appears to be pretty confident about the Zenfone AR which is available at a whopping price. This leads to the biggest question as to whether it can be a success in the Indian smartphones market or not.
That being said, the Asus Zenfone AR is an amazing piece of tech and those who savor true new in smartphones will definitely love this smartphone.

Asus Zenfone AR: Final verdict
Though there is absolutely nothing Asus has missed out on the Zenfone AR, we still can not say whether or not it will be a success in India or not.
