AnoM, 10 Dec 2019You now need to separate between hype and reality. 1. 4K resolutions, only Sony smartphone is... moreRemoving the sd card slot, they can also avoid that big hole on the frame to keep the water out and yea also our headphone jack. iPhone 11 is now swimming 4m underneath the water for 30 mins because of this for sure! What if the lightning and type c is gonna disappear one day and Qi charging comes up or I have seen there's a cheap charger with magnetic tips on it( type c and lightning) and who knows if the manufacturer is gonna adopt that or what! I like ROG phone by the way.
Melwis, 17 Dec 2019So I ordered the Strix Edition model for around €700 that has been released globally, thinking... more
This is a big trash on Asus! These differences matter a lot. in your place I would return the device! Asus must be sued for false information! Strix sold as EU model! Don't forget this! The behavior of Asus is unacceptable!
So I ordered the Strix Edition model for around €700 that has been released globally, thinking the only difference between the other two Elite/Ultimate models was the RAM & storage specifications... But as it turns out it seems the Strix Edition is more or less a copy of the Tencent Edition with reduced network speeds in Cat16 with 2x2 MIMO, no WiFi 6 support & limited LTE band support... The Elite Edition goes for around €1000 and Ultimate €1100 so I'm just wondering if it still makes sense to stick with the Strix Edition and that these drawbacks are not really anything to worry about? Seems like it might be better to save some money unless you really feel like thw additional storage capacity of the higher cost models might come in handy? The only thing that worries lie slightly is that it doesn't have support for LTE band 20 (800 MHz) which is used in my country (Sweden) and might make 4G connection unavailable in some locations...
What do people think in general of the Tencent Edition specs versus the Elite/Ultimate specs? Is it really just the differences in storage that should decide which one you go for and if 128 GB is enough for you there really is no reason to go for the higher priced models?
hey guys i have another question i look at youtube today and saw review that the tencent version of this fon is ufs 2.1?? is it true? and how is the mic quality when calling is it bad or good??
What is the sar value of this device in ll aspects?
satorhelyi, 11 Dec 2019Asus Rog 2 Srix Edition EU( !!!!!!!!) : Dual 4G SIM standby
Slot 1: 2G/3G/4G Nano SIM ... moreYeah I am so confused about this as well and I sent an email to Asus and got a late reply that the specifications on their website are supposedly correct for the Strix Edition model which makes it seem like a copy of the Asian Tencent Edition... I posted about this here a few days ago when I had concerns about it! Is it really possible that they would be selling this globally when it doesn't even have full LTE bands support to work in all countries???
What makes it even more strange is that several retailers here in my country (Sweden) have started selling this Strix Edition model and lists support for IEEE 802.11ad (WiFi 6, which Asus websites indicates it does not, only IEEE 802.11ac) under specifications for it... One of them also lists that it has the same LTE band support just like the Elite/Ultimate models while on Asus website it shows that it is lacking several of them under networking specifications (which can be seen in the post I am replying too)!
To anyone with knowledge about these networking specifications and the restrictions that the Strix Edition model seems to have (Cat16, 2x2 MIMO, no WiFi 6 support), how much of a drawback would you say this is overall and will you be able to tell a big difference in everyday use if you compare it to the Elite/Ultimate models which has LTE Cat18/20, 4x4 MIMO technology (4 antennas instead of 2 for better signal?) and support for WiFi 6? Is it worth spending around $300 extra to get this plus the additional RAM & storage that those models have..?

Loose Cannon, 22 Jul 2019EUR900 not make sense, Xiaomi Black Shark 2 is EUR450 and Nubia Red Magic 3 is EUR500. Too priceybro, the price is more than worth it.
