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.
This ROG phone was kind great phone, but not the best at all. I'm pretty praised with its model, which looks like badass gaming phone that like "look, look ! My phone is cool, You're not". I also loved when they really care about some ergonomic design that brings up performance to next pinnacle of benchmark--which has lot heatsinks and ventilation to prevent Snapdragon 845 thermal throttling.
But this phone come with one question. Who was this phone for ?
There are many alternatives in "gaming" phone such as a bang for buck phone Pocophone F1 with ridicolously low price, Huawei's best gaming phone, Honor Play, with same price as Poco F1 with Kirin 970 in it, or maybe some Razer Phone for it's simplicity of gaming phone, or Xiaomi Black Shark with it's cool design with great chipset too.
I think ROG Phone considered as the most powerful Snapdragon Smartphone in 2018, even competes Oneplus 6T. This phone is most likely for people who wants gaming experience to next level and durable for about 5 year span due great quality of cooling that prevent hardware degradation
bayarfaj2004, 31 Dec 2018Bro, relax, do you have any problem if I want to buy them all?On point. We have the resources to purchase the phone and the accessory and we love the product since it is quality vs quantity. Regardless of the price, the phone itself is to the highest level of it being premium. I love the ROG phone because you have no problem at all. Whatever people will say or post here on the comment section are all irrelevant for me due to that I have the phone and I know its my money's worth.

Was a s7 edge user for a couple of years and this is such a step up, amazing phone, a bit pricey but it fits all my needs!
One of the best gaming phone I've ever had. No issues at all when it comes to hardware and software as what you have seen on the previous posts here.
Got mine.. an upgrade from Note Edge
Played PUBG on it and the air triggers are literally OP.
Played Ragnarok M which the battery life is really something.
Uninstalled asphalt 9, controls are boring compared with the previous installments. not a car fan
Played Honkai Impact 3 on high settings, graphics are superb and no delay
Tried Dragon Nest, Mobile Legends and AOV. no latency on the buttons.
Downside that found on recent experience, ive noticed there is no native video or music player installed. and the side port cover is a bit of a worry since inserting and removing whenever il use an add on is is a hassle
I dont get it!
how come off if you put that air cooler on phone it preform worth than when it is not installed????
Really how they managed to do so?
The best gamer,streamer,flagship phone made and built with only a better gaming experience as it's Moto. It would be a dream phone for many mobile gaming streaming community And living in the realm of pubgmobile and fortnite which can be played in many phones but cannot give the gaming experience this phone has to offer all the tech in this phone is for only gamers and not for mere mortals! With tech like binned chips,slow throttling,Advanced side triggers,X mode (performance) and the 90fps display supported by the chip and games. For the live of mother this the gaming holy Grail here ROG phone done right _/\_
I like this phone but it came too late with old processor, no fingerprint scanner under the display, a little bit small screen and high price too !! Hope to see next version at the right time with more improvements...

Just like everyone else. But the right words you are looking for, is Chinese brands. Apple and Samsung is basically the same today. All look and security, that is controlled by nsa and Trump. No quality or unique features anymore. Apple is slow on the hardware updates, while Samsung is slow on the software updates.

or have you to much to spend?
Some Acc-s are not really usefull or needs more work
and the review is partly very biased (as usual by asus products here)
and very-very contradictory as well
do you really like that kind of things . . .
Great review, many thanks GSMArena.

If there's no IP rating. How can I bring this on the bathroom then if I bought this?
HugoSteger, 22 Dec 2018How can you surely that the phone has IP ratings according to the site if no one has ever test... moreWell, that's what I said. It doesn't officially have an IP rating but Asus states that it has water resistance. OnePlus did the same thing to the 6 and 6T (gave it protection but no official IP rating to keep down the cost).
I'm not saying you're wrong considering we don't know how MUCH of the protection it has.
