Reviews for the Asus ROG Phone 2

Asus ROG Phone 2 Hands-On Review: A Beastly Gaming Phone Ever
Source: Igeekphone English
I think users’ attitude towards Asus ROG 2 should be two extremes. People who don’t like it can find many reasons, such as big, heavy, overperformance and low-cost performance. But for those who like it, all these shortcomings can be converted into advantages: the screen is big enough, the battery life is strong, the performance is hot, the armor looks cool, and the price of 3499 yuan is quite close to the people in the ROG series. Especially in the eyes of ROG believers, it is just a loser’s eye LOGO, probably more than this price.

Asus ROG Phone 2 Tech Specs: Most Powerful Phone Yet?
Source: Team Android English
Last year’s ASUS ROG Phone felt like one of the first gaming phones that actually made sense. But for its second attempt, Asus has doubled down on everything: Between its big 6.6-inch screen, a new processor from Qualcomm, and an absolutely massive battery, Asus may have just created the most powerful Android phone on the market. Let’s start with its display. Instead of sticking with a 90Hz refresh rate, Asus selected an OLED screen with an even faster 120Hz refresh rate, which is the first of its kind among phones and apes the trend towards more responsive displays we’ve seen on gaming PCs.

Plus, we just found out that gaming phones make a big difference and this one might just be the best gaming phone yet.

ASUS ROG Phone II Hands On and First Impressions
Source: B2G English
The first ROG Phone was a product that mobile gamers didn’t think they needed until it launched last Computex 2018. It’s the first gaming phone that has accessories which greatly improves the gaming experience of the user. ASUS ROG saw that mobile hardware can now play games at high refresh rates and the need for accessories in a “gaming phone.” The ROG Phone 2 was created out of demand and not because Asus can just do it. According to their studies, there will be a 14% growth rate of the eSports audience with 57% of the growth coming from the Asia Pacific. This projected growth has led Asus to develop the next gaming standard of the mobile market. Does the ROG Phone 2 live up as another game-changer in the smartphone landscape? Let’s take a closer look.
