Construiți o aplicație de augmented reality prin care clientul să-și poată compara (virtual) telefonul propriu cu orice alt telefon disponibil pe piata (functionalitatea trebuie demonstrate prin compararea cu minim 5 telefoane). Comparatia trebuie sa permita vizualizarea dimensiunilor 360º, a marimii ecranului si a pozitionarii butoanelor / camerei. Culorile si materialul trebuie reprezentate realist.
