Asus ZenFone AR unboxing

So, we’ve finally got our grubby mitts on the augmented reality phone by Asus — the ZenFone AR. What is it about?

The Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) is the successor to the hugely popular and affordable original J5.
It replaces the plastic shell of the original with a stylish metal body, it introduces a thinner side bezel that makes it more comfortable to hold and it adds a lot of premium features, all at a very cheap price point.
