Gsmarena u must be hating LG so much. While op 8pro, galaxy s series comes as alternatives, lg v60 is no where whereas the latter has a dual screen which helps normal gamers a lot. The only downside the v60 has is he screen refreshing rate. Yet, it's a solid phone compared to the non-gaming phones that u have mentioned!!!
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2020Just few websites give option to go black. Dark mode of browser does not change anything. ... moreLol LCD uses more power to illuminate black color than OLED as OLED does not illuminate light at all for black. The fact is LCD use same power to illuminate any color. So if we talking about power consumption, LCD is worse than OLED
s3xy, 22 Jul 2020Total fail:
- No OIS
- No Optical Zoom
- No IP68
- No Wireless Charging
- No Jack 3,5mm
... moreAll mentioned Camera features useless for real image quality. Most of the better pictures taken in best mobile phone cameras use Fixed Focal lengths, without image stabilisation. Any Zoom in mobile phone camera is useless beyond just gimmicks, EIS is available and with the amount of processing power it can easily show better videos if not the best.
Mobile phone cameras have limitations and they merely working around that with tons of processing because Mobile phones have that capability unlike DigiCams where it relies the expertise of the photographer and optics and NOT much of its processing(though there are inherent digital image processing is there but not like AI in Mobiles)
Wireless Charging makes sense if you have slightly smaller battery. But with 6000 mHs is more than enough for a single day use.
IP certification is obviously not possible with heat dissipation chambers and holes to let heat. Even Oppo Find X2 with hefty price tag(much much higher than ROG III) without Witeless Charging & IP rating.
I think ASUS ROG III, Lenovo LEGION, Xiomi Blackshark are best value for money if they keep their specs and prices in the same range like last year.
Only issues with ASUS ROG is their internals are not designed with lots of thinking and it all look more haphazard manner unlike Samsung or Apple or Huawei.
Anonymous, 23 Jul 2020Tsk tsk late software updatesAside from google pixel, all other brands also push late update. Even samsung and oneplus (2 or 3 weeks late after google release). So what the suprising thing here?
When I read that there's no 3.5mm jack, I stopped reading the review.
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2020No 3.5mm jack? WTFtry a wireless BT headphone/Neckband etc, you will love it. wires are always messy, and when it comes to headphones, it's triple messy!

I have a habit of watching movies/shows before going to sleep and tend to have all lights off and hence use it in low brightness (auto mode) where it becomes problematic, so much that I can no longer perceive dark scenes. If I decide to hurt my eyes and ramp up the brightness, then I'm faced with heavy black-crushing leading to further loss of detail. :/
iOS Succckkks, 23 Jul 2020What will you do with your previous phone? What do you think? 🤔

However, it is very minor and only appears at very few brightness settings below 35%. Honestly, if i wasn't looking for it, I wouldn't notice and I tend to be really particular about display issues like bleed, uniformity and DSE. Most OLED panels tend to struggle in one way or another at very low and very high brightness. I really wouldn't worry about what I am seeing on the review unit. Beyond that, if you are really picky, you just have to hope that the sillicon lottery is kind to you :)

This is what Gsmarena found while measuring the nits on the screen.
At 85% it is 200/480. So, 10-30% is really dim for the 120hz screen.
I don't know what nits is 30% but I'm sure it's below the real 30% nits.
Just put it on auto and the problem is gone.
Similar tint issues found on S20 ultra, OnePlus 8 pro, IPhone 11 pro Max.
