Rog Phone is one of the most powerful smartphones on the market, according to AnTuTu performance tests, and one of the few smartphones available only to gamers, so when there was a chance to see the device for the first time before launch, I did not hesitate. You will then be able to find items that distinguish the current ROG Phone from other similar devices.
ROG Telephone – Design
The ASUS game phone tries to keep the design elements of other gaming devices. The back is decorated with angular elements, the camera and fingerprint sensor are framed with irregular shapes that look inspired by the design. ASUS has released monitors and peripherals over the past few years. This is also the first smartphone used with ventilation slots to cool the chipset more efficiently.
At the same time, the ROG logo, the first phone ever seen in the backlight area, has been decorated with RGB LEDs that are compatible with ASUS's Aura lighting system. In terms of connectivity, it handles USB Type-C ports, audio jacks and USB Type-C dual ports, the latter used for connecting accessories.
Another interesting feature of this device is two "air triggers" (two left and right) that can be configured to detect user presses and use them as physical buttons in the game.
Finally, we are dealing with the AMOLED Full HD + 18: 9 format, which is compatible with HDR standards. This is the first product to be shown in the market at 90Hz, offering similar performance to a PC game monitor with a 1ms delay. It shows nice colors and is very bright. It is recommended for the Razer Phone's IGZO display with a frequency of 120 Hz, but the brightness is very low.
The audio system is not ignored, and the ROG phone has two front speakers located above and below the display, which are very powerful and are not used to hold your phone in your hands when you play.
