Sure there are things you can do much better on a computer since you can use a keyboard and a mouse but there are many others you can easily do on your phone and even feel more comfortable due to the beautiful screens on phones nowadays.
Anonymous, 19 Jul 2019No not really because back then people actually used their phones to make calls or send a few ... moreSo then, you only use your phone to make a few calls and send a few texts then? Are you still using a Nokia? Or Sony Ericsson? Perhaps BlackBerry...? Since Android or iOS is so derogatory to you...
Anonymous, 19 Jul 2019No not really because back then people actually used their phones to make calls or send a few ... moreLet people do whatever they want, If I want to install old console emulators and games on my phone plug it to any nearby TV, and play with a Bluetooth controller, I do it :)
If people want to watch movies on their "small" smartphones or plugged to a TV, they do it.
I don't believe smartphones are weak.
When Samsung introduced Dex and other brands introduced similar things, it gave people hope for some productivity, even if it's not the power of a MacBook Pro, MacPro etc.
Shadocx, 19 Jul 2019You mean calling and sending SMS only? That's so 2000. Smartphones are like pocket computers now.No not really because back then people actually used their phones to make calls or send a few texts here and there. People rely on their weak Android and iOS devices way too much, they're addicted to them and probably use them 24/7. If you're serious about consuming lots of content or productivity and efficiency or anything that doesn't require you to carry out simple, quick, mundane tasks then get a real computer lol
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2019IKR, I used to think 128 GB was enough , I got a mate 20 128 gb and now I keep deleting files,... moreWhy would you even do that?! Unless you're a frequent flyer or traveller and/or enjoy watching lengthy TV shows and movies on your tiny phone which causes eye strain and discomfort after a long period of time. Just watch it on a laptop or TV like a normal person, your deteriorating eyes will thank you.

Mr. Electronics, 18 Jul 2019what's mk i and mk ii?Mk.I = Version 1 = ASUS RoG Phone
Mk.II = Version 2 = ASUS RoG Phone2
PS: I think my large limits are:
(166 x 77 x 9.9mm dimensions)
~5.0 inch 13:9 or Root2 or IMAX
~5.8 inch 16:9
~6.3 inch 18:9
~6.8 inch 20:9
~7.1 inch 21:9
....otherwise it becomes obtrusive/less mobile for me to carry.
PS: I think my small limits are:
(120 x 60 x 5.0mm dimensions)
~3.8 inch 13:9 or Root2 or IMAX
~4.4 inch 16:9
~4.8 inch 18:9
~5.3 inch 20:9
~5.5 inch 21:9
....otherwise it becomes too small for my fat thumbs to use.
PS: I think my preferred size is:
(154 x 74 x 7.9mm dimensions)
~4.7 inch 13:9 or Root2 or IMAX
~5.5 inch 16:9
~6.0 inch 18:9
~6.5 inch 20:9
~6.8 inch 21:9
....this hits the sweet spot of big screen and small body.
AND my wishlist/intanglibles are:
- Flat display and No Camera Hump
- Slim Bezels to hold the device (NO notch/hole)
- Front-firing stereo loudspeakers
- Headphone Jack (and QuadDAC if possible)
- microSD Slot
- IP68 waterproofing and/or Removable Battery
- Access to bootloader/root/Custom Roms
- Decent Battery Life, Performance, and Cameras
Fellow readers, what is your preferred size of screen and dimensions???
Shadocx, 18 Jul 2019128 GB is enough for you? wowIKR, I used to think 128 GB was enough , I got a mate 20 128 gb and now I keep deleting files, to download a season for any tv show I start watching
I don't get it. Asus is still not able to release the Zenfone 6 properly. They haven't been able to provide stock of it for months, and yet a new phone is out? How long are we going to have to wait until the ROG Phon2 is released?
120Hz display, 5800 mAh battery, tons of accessories, top of the line cooling (helps in 4k recording too) and most importantly RGB. Love it, proper gaming phone!
If this supports a microSD card, then it's a definite buy for me. I gave up my Samsung Galaxy S9 (with a 200GB microSD card) for the ROG Phone. 128GB isn't enough in this day and age. I would have even considered the 512GB version but can't seem to buy anywhere here in the UK.
Go for red magic 3 it's cheaper and you don't need sd card if you buy 128gb plus fan and liquid cooling
Couldn't the fingerprint scanner be on the side as well instead of underdisplay
I don't like oled but if this is at 120hz for an oled that's impressive
But if they went 5th generation igzo LCD for that 120hz the battery would be god-like
And it wouldn't have touch jitters in games that oled is known for
