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

Asus ROG Phone review

 

Overkill, fresh and a lot of fun

Great gaming enhancements ; Punchy 90Hz AMOLED screen ; Really good camera

Heavy at 200g ; Awkward second USB port cover ; Runs Android 8.1

It may look like an irate Decepticon, but thanks to a really good camera, a great screen and excellent gaming performance, not to mention a suite of overkill accessories, the ROG Phone manages to get right much of what the Razer Phone 2 got wrong,...

Asus ROG Phone review: Hands on with the "world’s fastest" smartphone

 

The Asus ROG phone sets its sights on the mobile gamer, and is equipped with the fastest mobile processor yet

It’s burly build and ROG-flavoured design will not be everyone’s cup of Oolong, but the kind of people this is aimed at just won’t care – the ROG Phone is over-engineered to perfection.

Asus ROG Phone

 

The Aus ROG Phone is here with the aim to be the best gaming smartphone in the world, but can it beat the Razer Phone? Here's our full review.

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 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 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...
