Reviews for the Asus ROG Ally Z1 Extreme

87.5% Asus ROG Ally Z1 Extreme Review - Gaming handheld with 120 Hz display and AMD Zen4 | Notebookcheck
The Asus ROG Ally is a powerful gaming handheld and a direct competitor for Valve’s Steam Deck. Thanks to powerful hardware from AMD, which is based on the latest Zen4 Phoenix mobile processors, the gaming handheld even handles modern games smoothly.

Who has the best handheld console? - Steam Deck OLED vs ASUS ROG Ally

85% ROG Ally review: A powerful alternative to the Steam Deck
Source: Hardware Zone English
So, the ROG Ally may not be the go-to choice for everyone. For a good number of gamers, the Steam Deck and Nintendo Switch OLED may still hold the top spots. But for those hungry for extra firepower or the enhanced flexibility that Windows offers, the ROG Ally is a remarkable contender. With a price point of US$699.99 (Singapore's pricing will differ), it's a fair deal and is recommended for those intrigued, though with a few minor reservations. If you're mulling over a gaming laptop, the ROG Ally, with its distinctive form, may blend into your lifestyle more seamlessly. ASUS deserves a pat on the back for this endeavour, and with potential for future software enhancements and personalised DIY tweaks, it could turn out to be a real winner for the right user.

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.
