Asus ROG Phone

 

Thanks to an overclocked processor and a big, responsive display, the Asus ROG is an excellent Android phone for gamers.

Overclocked Snapdragon 845 processor delivers solid performance. Gorgeous 90Hz AMOLED display for immersive gaming experience.

Poor battery life. Divisive design. Awkward fingerprint sensor placement.

If you're in the market for a gaming phone, the Asus ROG Phone is the one to get, with the best balance of hardware and features for hardcore mobile gamers. For casual gamers, however, the phone may be overkill. The OnePlus6T has excellent specs for...

Asus' new phone is the best way to play games on Android

 

Thanks to its thoughtful design innovations, the Asus ROG Phone almost feels like a portable console.

The Asus ROG Phone has innovative AirTriggers to expand game control beyond the screen, excellent battery life and a ton of optional gaming accessories.

It costs $100 more than the Razer Phone 2 and the design might be too out there for some. The screen was too dim in some situations and the detachable fan unit is just asking to be lost.

Let there be no doubt: this is a serious gaming phone. Nongamers should look at the Pixel 3, OnePlus 6 or Galaxy Note 9 instead.

Asus ROG Phone review: Too much gamer in one phone

 

In the growing space of 'gaming phones' the ASUS ROG Phone misses the mark.

Beautiful 90Hz AMOLED screen ; Fast and smooth hardware ; All the ports you could ever need and more!

The gamer aesthetic is laid on too thick inside and out ; Uncomfortable to hold in daily use ; The software is an eyesore

When the ROG Phone was announced I was excited. Being a gamer means I can appreciate silly things like RGB logos and active cooling—even on my phone. When improvements like front-firing speakers and high-refresh-rate screens improve daily use as well...

ASUS ROG Phone Smartphone Review

 

Let's ROG Stop Zen! After years of calm, ASUS has blown the mobile gaming world open with its first smartphone. The ROG Phone has more up its sleeve than a fast processor, plenty of RAM and energetic marketing material. ASUS has integrated trigger...

Trigger buttons in the frame ; Dock connector ; Cooler (included) ; Snapdragon 845 ; 8GB RAM ; USB 3.1 Type-C ; Dual-SIM ; front-firing stereo speakers ; dual camera ; Aura RGB logo ; bright display ; Gorilla Glass 6 ; Qualcomm QuickCharge 4.0 ; decent...

slow Wi-Fi ; short battery life ; non-expandable storage ; no VoLTE ; comparatively low display resolution ; heavy ; expensive

ASUS has set new standards with its ROG Phone, although the first generation has room for improvement. The company has gone all out with the ROG Phone’s gaming accessories, which are rather expensive. Moreover, its 90 Hz display is ideal for gaming,...

Asus ROG Phone Review

 

We spent some quality time with the ROG Phone to see if Asus could properly marry its gaming traditions with its smartphone strengths to make the best gaming phone yet.

Great gaming performance and experience ; Cooling fan included and does its job well ; Camera performance that doesn’t compromise and competes well at this price-point ; Cool design that’s both fun and serious ; Offers a bunch of fun and useful...

Air Triggers, while responsive, are ergonomically hard to utilize ; Most accessories are quite expensive ; Low-light photos can get a bit noisy

Asus ROG Phone Review: Totally Over-the-Top Gaming

 

From its bold design, seriously lovely display and impressive performance, the Asus ROG Phone is a bonafide discussion starter. And the topic of said discussion: Does the world need a gaming phone?

Unique, eye-catching design ; Powerful performance ; Beautiful display ; Great cameras

Expensive ; Below-average battery life

With its bold design, powerful performance and innovative features, the ROG Phone is one of Asus' most compelling smartphones to date.

Asus' ROG Phone Is the Dumb Fun RGB Handset Gamers Deserve

 

A lot of people still aren't convinced gaming phones are something that should even exist. But if there was one phone that might be able to sway peoples' opinions, it'd be Asus' Republic of Gamer (or ROG) Phone. In fact, based on some recent corporate...

Asus ROG Phone review: this flagship has all the big guns | AndroidPIT

 

Smartphones for gamers are the next big thing according to many manufacturers - and Asus won't be left out. The new ROG Phone from the specialized gaming brand is packed full of high-end features and gimmicks for modern mobile gamers. Here's what we...

While Asus ROG’s PC gaming line was never really my favorite, I have to admit that the Asus ROG Phone has really impressed me. If you’ve got $900 to burn and you're in the market for a top smartphone that doubles as a high end handheld gaming device,...

ASUS ROG Phone review: The 'ultimate gaming phone' | Trusted Reviews

 

ASUS ROG Phone review: Glorious overkill for serious Android gamers

Great screen ; Innovative peripherals system ; Solid performance ; Airtrigger controls are a gamers dream

Battery life could be better ; Not enough games that take advantage of the hardware

The ROG Phone is the ultimate gaming phone, but for most people it’s complete overkill

Asus ROG Phone review

 

Every ROG has its day

It’s gamer and proud for life ; Delightfully odd extra bits

The most polarising phone design… anywhere ; Unsubtle screen calibration ; Battery life isn’t great

It’s the weird bits that make the ROG a notable phone, but the last thing we needed was another “normal” Android
