So we don't have HoloLens headsets for regular Joes, and apps that really use AR are still few and far between. But we're still in the cocoon phase -- the revolutionary butterfly will blossom eventually. And Silicon Valley knows it. Augmented reality was a big part of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's spiel at April's F8 conference. The company will use the tech, Zuck says, to "mix the digital and physical in new ways."Apple also has its eyes on the prize, with CEO Tim Cook telling The Independent in February that AR is just as much a game changer as the iPhone was. Apple has yet to announce anything official, but rumours point to some AR functionality in the iPhone 8 and even to a pair of AR glasses.
Meanwhile, Microsoft seems to have learned from Google's mistakes, as signs point to the tech giant building an ecosystem: In March it announced 150 apps have already been developed, And the second phone to use Google's Tango AR platform, the Asus ZenFone AR, is a much slimmer, sexier model that at the very least will make advanced AR iphone s case apple on a phone much more palatable to hold and use, AR is the future, all it needs is a champion, Whether it's Google, Microsoft, Apple or a contender we don't know yet, some company will rise to the occasion and knock us into a very new, very augmented reality..
Commentary: VR is here, but the true reality revolution is augmented. Remember life without your phone? No, neither do I. And in a few years, you'll feel the same way about augmented reality, or AR.

I see the G5's metal design more often on top-end phones with higher prices attached. It's comfortable to hold and I'm keen on the soft gold colour of my review model. There's a fingerprint scanner on the front below the screen. It works well and functions as a combined home and back button, once you've activated the functionality in the settings. You can read more about this button in our Moto G5 Plus review. There's no NFC, so for contactless Android Pay transactions you'll need to upgrade to the G5 Plus.
