Last year Asus dropped good phone with not so great pricing in the form of Asus Zenfone 6. If pricing would have been little aggressive it could have literally gained a lot of market share and hence fans would have waited for Asus Zenfone 7. But wrong pricing for Zenfone 6 and people opted for One Plus 7T despite Zenfone 6 being better overall phone. Pricing is always keep post this Corona Pandemic.

I'm real glad that I got the RoG Phone II last year. Looks like I'm looking forward for Sony Xperia 1 III next year or the RoG Phone IV the year after that with bringing back the headphone jack.

What I meant is not the graphics quality that are crap, rather the mechanics and the gameplay itself. Same like PUBG Mobile. Lots of child costumes these days and ridden with excessive hackers. Gameplay is nothing special and the game lost rep this year.
I just want to point out while gaming smartphones are very powerful and has great specs but they are still a bit obsolette for now. Friend with Blackshark 2 only plays those generic games, while it does offer nice gaming performance but that's it.
TechLad, 16 Jun 2020Gotta be bit realistic with the pricing . Didn't the base model of the ROG 2 sell for £... moreRedmi K30 Pro is selling at 399 dollars with some of the features you mentioned. Sony sensor as well. Add 300 dollars to rest of the components. Anything beyond 750 dollars is DOA. Updates is bit of bummer as well. No need to spend so much of money on smartphones. If you don't care about 5G,then last year's flagship are good as well. You will get good deals on everything. S10 to One Plus 7T all are good products now. S20 hardly selling this year. Waiting for S20 Lite around 600 dollar price mark with snapdragon 865 by the end of the year.

Crap prices for Europe no matter which phone you buy. In China/India, Asus ROG 2 was between 400-500 dollars for 6+128 even though stocks were not so good. I guess it was same condition in US.
is it just me or GSMArena forgot to mention that it doesn't come with audio jack (based on the rumor I found on XDA)
wbpwns, 16 Jun 2020Does it have dual speakers? Can't see from the pic if it has bottom speakerit does come with stereo front firing speakers :)

I've just looked on the ROG phone 3 specs on TENAA's website and its weighing in at 240G, the exact same as Rog 2. Though a 200mah battery capacity isn't a big difference between the ROG 2 and 3, I was expecting a few grams being knocked off . Personally I think they should've kept it at 120hz cuz atm 144hz is useless, UNLESS tencent and Asus announces a partnership which allows Pubg and cod mobile to be played at 144hz. But I can't see that happening
good thing about this it won't throttle much atall
TechLad, 16 Jun 2020I'm confused. Are u asking why is the battery so huge or why is it a slight downgrade to Rog 2... moreBut it has 5G and 144Hz refresh rate display, there is an article about that, I don't think downgrading the battery was a good move but maybe the phone was just too heavy.
Looks like Asus learned from JerryRigEverything that the vent does nothing so they made the phone look more mainstream. I hope they keep the 2nd USB-C port, DAC powered headphone jack and enhance the two speakers a bit more. I hope next year's RoG Phone IV will be miles better enough to replace my RoG Phone 2.
Oh yeah, keep the radio. It's completely useful for my travels.
[deleted post]There are still non-hardcore games that require the best processors to run smoothly like ARK or SIFAS or Honkai Impact 3. So no need to bring out those games and call mobile games trash.
Does it have dual speakers? Can't see from the pic if it has bottom speaker
865+!!! How great is that!! Calling all gamers!!! We have never had it soooo good!!!! And it's going to be getting even better...!!! Red Magic 5G (S?) Will be launching in just 3 months time... 865+ in a Red Magic... The perfect Nemesis for RoG 3... Watch out...!!! Incoming!! From multi angles.
Mediatek sux, 16 Jun 2020There might be a tencent version like the rog 2. That was a great deal.Look carefully at the TENAA images... You will see that it is a Tencent version.
2GCA6301, 16 Jun 2020Why 5800 mAhI'm confused. Are u asking why is the battery so huge or why is it a slight downgrade to Rog 2. Either way SD 8x series are power and battery efficient . So if ROG have an optimised UI (which ROG UI 2 was) combine a efficient SOC with a good UI then a slightly battery decrease isn't going to make a huge impact
Hey, 16 Jun 2020You can clearly a thin bezel on the top and the selifie camera position is awkward for puch ho... moreYup, pretty much like ROG2 on front design, with thin bezels.
Really curious why the LQw guy says it has notch lol.
Surprised, the design is like a typical normal phone. No over edgy "gaming" design like previous ROG phones or Black Shark.
