So basically - A mediocre phone...
Why it is marketed as gaming??!
AnonD-932544, 16 Jun 2020I mean, they toned gaming vibe down a little which is great so more people will buy it. Many o... moreIt looks ugly , even the iphone looks better than it . come o the new design is ugggly even for non gaming device looks
wait...how is this an upgrade ?
smaller battery, no headphone jack,
oh wow... 144hz screen because that measly 120hz screen is so outdated in 2020.
the rog2 12/512 variant that i have already has 30W charging, and that 4gb of extra ram wont make a difference to 16gb, just as the 12gb didn't make a difference for my version with 12 instead of 8.
The only reason i got this version was for the 512gb storage compared to the regular 128 version.
64mp camera compared to 48...The camera was never the main focus of this phone. It will still be average, even with an 108 sensor.
aside from the new chipset (because we all know that the sd855+ cant handle gaming and daily tasks in 2020) why would anyone buy this ???
Vegetaholic, 20 Jun 2020Lol, you muppets 144 ir 120 you NOT going to see difference, only your battery will die faster... moreGsmarena, Mr. whosetheboss, and others already acknowledged difference between 144hz and 120hz.
Although 120hz is the sweet spot until processors become capable of churning out 240fps frames in AAA titles.
Vegetaholic, 20 Jun 2020Lol, you muppets 144 ir 120 you NOT going to see difference, only your battery will die faster... moreLol, you muppet 144 ir 120 I WILL going to see difference, only your battery will die as fast as 60 hz 4000mah phones since here its 6000. :D smoothnes of UI :D 60hz already smooth for UI is what you think if you havent used anything above that, you need to exprerience it muppet. You can also have a life along with it, or is that too hard for you muppet?
Mediatek sux, 17 Jun 2020Oh if i had 144 id use it for the smoother ui over 120.Lol, you muppets 144 ir 120 you NOT going to see difference, only your battery will die faster :D smoothnes of UI :D 60hz already smooth for UI, you need to have a life people :)
will probably just skip the 3 pretty happy with the rog2 rn might just buy the 12/512 ver since its gonna take a price dip
Mediatek sux, 17 Jun 2020Sure the 865 is more efficient, but theres the 144hz display and external modem to suck batter... moreYou'd most likely set it to 120hz anyway buddy. The only games that support it 144hz
Dead trigger 2
Real racing 3
Into the dead
Couldn't imagine spending big money on a gaming phone only to end up playing a casual game (subway surfer ) in 144hz
Black Mamba , 17 Jun 2020More than 200 plus games currently support high refresh rate. Here's a list: https://zental... moreYeh I know that buddy but they support 120hz not 144hz. Having a 144hz is good on paper but when hardly any games support it then it's kinda pointless
PaxiFixi, 16 Jun 20205800mah? Thats a downgrade for sure. Plus it will be together with a 144hz screen which will s... moreI think rog 3 and red magic 5g has the same problem, they trade battery for 1 extra gimmick camera. But we'll see how efficient the SD865 gonna be
apprise, 16 Jun 2020Tbh buddy a dip from 6000 to 5800 isn't a big difference and SD 8x series are battery and powe... moreSure the 865 is more efficient, but theres the 144hz display and external modem to suck battery more. I guess you could just set the display to 120 to save battery. Would wait and see a gsmarena review for the battery life though.
The rog 2 also supported 30w charging, just that the cheaper version came with an inbox 18w charger. It made a 30 min difference.
apprise, 16 Jun 2020It's a slight downgrade comparing it to the ROG 2. But if u own the Rog 2. You probably won't ... moreMore than 200 plus games currently support high refresh rate. Here's a list:

You probably won't notice a difference because though the battery's smaller, the phone has a even more power efficient SOC.
it's rumoured to have 144hz but barley any games support it, from what I know it's Real Racing 3 and honkai impact 3rd. Don't think that because the phone has an option to enable 144hz that all your games will play in it . You can enable 144hz mode but if u play cod mobile or pubg you'll be playing it in 60hz because them 2 games only support 120hz MAX
