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: An expensive way of showing off your gaming credentials

 

There's nothing inherently wrong with the Asus ROG Phone but you can do better for the money

Snappy performance ; Solid screen ; Clever gaming tweaks

So-so camera ; Too expensive

That’s essentially my main problem with the Asus ROG Phone. On many levels it’s a hugely impressive product. It runs beautifully, the gaming improvements are well thought out and it has a great screen, albeit one that’s a little on the small side. But...

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 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...
