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.
How much does the whole bag cost? The phone with all its accessories.

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.
Couch expert, 22 Dec 2018So a good phone shouldn't have a 3.5 port as well? Black Shark surely doesn't.No, that was something I put in.
The business manager schmuck was going to remove it, but he forgot.
If Xiaomi added removable batteries to the cheap PocoPhone, other phones including the RoG Phone would have been in bigger trouble!
Wow what a review. Thank you gsmarena for such a well detailed review. Was getting tired of typical battles of Samsung vs Huawei vs Apple. This was a breath of fresh air.

So yes, you are also using Chinese. Things I stay away from, is edged screens, slow updates, expensive price for the logo, locked system and low mah batteries. Even though op6's 3300 mah lasts just as long as the 4000 mah battery in rog phone. While gaming the same games on both.

Also, I never buy a chinese brand smartphones.
Zendroid, 22 Dec 2018Fps games are only played on the computer. So nope. Not anymore, More and more people are now playing FPS and RPG games on mobile. Why do you think that android smartphone has the capability of using a gamepad controller? I have an IPEGA controller for my samsung galaxy note 8. Why do you think that there are FPS games on playstore if no ones gonna play it in the first place?
Shanti Dope, 22 Dec 2018Really trying hard to find faults on a near perfect phone, huh?
If you're an average consumer... moreThere's no perfect smartphone. Don't you forget that!
You think I'm a dumb person? Then why don't you prove it if my cons are wrong?
That's a problem for a user like you. You don't think first before buying a smartphone.
There are reasons why users are asking if this phone is good for personal preferences like intense mobile gaming and such. You don't directly tell them that "YES, THIS IS A PERFECT PHONE FOR YOU". Only to find out that after a few months. There's a faulty sensor.
Remember, this is the only phone in the world that has a lot of gaming features. First gen. phones tend to have some problems with durability. And since this is a gaming phone. Were talking about the durability of the unit when overclocking mode is engage. As well as the protection and when using the phone. If this was a normal android smartphone. There shouldn't be any kind of discussion such as these.

It is the obligation of the manufacturer to include a demo of the unit which test IP ratings. Jerryrigeverything has tested this unit. And it survive the test. However, there was no water or dust test.
