I do miss not having a memory card slot. I'm too conscious about storage, whereas when I had the Galaxy S9 paired with a 200GB microSD card, I had nothing to worry about. Shame the 512GB version isn't available in the UK yet.

Always thought this phone was nothing special, but just noticed that it has a 90Hz OLED screen, which is great news. A 90Hz LCD is nothing to run home about, but a 90Hz OLED is industry first. I just hope 120Hz screens become the norm. Once you use one on an iPad, you will never ever want 60Hz again.

Thanks for the reply. true it is a gaming phone but the Note 9 dose not have that issue of the screen heating up that much.. I hope the next version will be better and with a 6.5 inch screen. I actually would have kept the ROG phone but never could get a 4G/LTE connection. Only HSPA+ was what I would get. I am In, USA, Honolulu Hawaii and should have not matter since the Note 9 would get 4G/LTE. So if anyone in the USA that has the phone and can get on 4G/LTE please let me know.
There is/ was an interesting sale in ASUS' own Shop /Spain
you can choose one orig. ROG Phone accessory free,
or from the expensive ones at discounted price of only Â€ 100.
That "flash sale" ends today,
so hurry up if you live in Spain.
ROG phone as a whole is a great phone overall with one flaw. Its screen. Due to screen refresh rate, even though you set it to a lower frame rate, really sucks the battery fast. But overall the phone is awesome.
SD Card would be a nice touch mainly for the 128G Version coming from someone that is used to having a phone with dedicated or shared micro SD slot. But that issue can be resolved with online storage. Granted it is an older phone but the sim / storage card layout for the zenfone ar and zenfone max plus feels more flexible with dual sim and dedicated micro SD. The battery capacity with heavy usage and heavy data usage may not live up to the all day power ...

What u are describing is a problem that most probably emerges from long playing times. After all, its still a phone... gaming phone... but phone nonetheless.
Nevertheless, is worth taking what you are saying in consideration, because, a lot of reviewers didnt address that issue. If your thumbs tends to get "stick" on the ("heated") screen, thats a problem that affects gaming experience.
Im not sure why overclock a phone @2,96 GHz when @2,8 GHz with Asus hardware tunning and setting would make it great enough.
I see a great gaming phone but a bit expensive... not sure if i wanna invest almost u$d 1k in a phone, that most probably is gonna get old in 2 or 3 years at most.

Just one advice. If you feel hot, that means that the processor is raising its temperature. Most probable it will not make any difference to the chipset, but sooner or later... well... to the battery is another story.
When you feel very hot, just let it rest without charging, just to avoid degradating the battery life. Remember that sooner or later, the battery is gonna get hot from da chipset.
¿5 hours of full gaming with PUBG? You are killing that poor thing, haha... enjoy and try to use it a little less... lets say 1.30 or 2.00 hours top before letting get a little rest.
Salut and congrats for "THE" (gamers) phone.
SavioR, 13 Nov 2018No external memory card slot? But WHY?!So that you spend more money to buy their 512GB version
Phecabooth, 25 Dec 2018I pre-Ordered it here in the UK for 699.99 GBP, it arrived 19th december, the very next day I ... moreHi there, ASUS overall quality is good, but not for their after-sales customer service or the quality of the service in their service centre.
Cyrax43, 27 Nov 2018I've had this phone for 2 weeks now and I gotta say I'm impressed.
I've had samsung s7 edge... moreI've had samsung s7 edge for 2 years and after using ROG, I wouldn't want to go back, you really can really feel the 1 ms response time, everything is smooth as silk, phone looks great, a tad heavy but it's something getting used to. The colors are beautiful and neat. What I didn't like was the glass at the back, it feels like it's always gonna crack when you place it on something rough, but it's still beautiful to look at.
And now for gaming, PUBG is my most processor hungry game app , everything on high graphics, 60 fps thanks to gfx tool, and the game is smooth. The back get's hot, really hot but I think it's just on the outside and not the internal, hot enough to make you uncomfortable, but it still is playable. But no matter how hot is becomes (been playing for 5 hours) the game still runs smoothly, everything still runs smooth.
all in all I give it a 10/10. Will try more games on it, but I have no doubt it could handle everything perfectly.
I pre-Ordered it here in the UK for 699.99 GBP, it arrived 19th december, the very next day I had to send it back due to the screen issue, there was a dead pixel on it.
The ASUS Customer Service looks like a complete joke to me since I contacted to them.
They sent me a youtube link of a 10 years old kid who try to fix his dead pixeled screen.
Now they have no more units in stock, so I am still waiting.
I have always laughed at ASUS. But not with the ROG Phone. Everything is superb except for the camera.
umm go to asus and search for the phone go to specs it says it has dual nano sim
for those who ask can u make phone calls :P i think ima buy this phone next year
