Really appreciate the fact that these guys put everything they could, 3.5mm jack, FM, squeeze function, good DAC, stereo speakers. Sans the SD slot. While software improvements are warranted esp. for camera, this is almost a no-compromise phone. That dock is awesome too.
I like the design. Somehow reminds me (those orange accents, maybe) mighty Siemens M65 back from the past.

-Unique look and amazing build quality.
-Lavish packaging with plenty of added value.
-Amazingly cutting edge with Squeeze detection, AirTrigger tap pads on the side and awesome connectivity, incl. the 802.11ad 60GHz support.
-The high refresh rate OLED makes a noticeable difference in the smoothness and has stellar sunlight legibility.
-Asus pushes the limits of what is possible with the Snapdragon 845 performance-wise.
-3.5mm audio jack as STANDARD!! Most gaming phones this year don't even have that!!
In conclusion, if it have a microsd slot, it will be a perfect phone!!
Looks good all around but that battery life is unacceptable of a gaming phone that carries that high a price tag.
Thanks GSMArena.com for such a long and comprehensive review. I knew I would never buy it, but still enjoy reading the detailed review written with dedication and after all sorts of tests.
Asus ROG PHONE comes with two usb type c port and headphone jack , bigger battery ,
