Reviews for the Asus ROG Phone 6D Ultimate

80% Asus ROG Phone 6D Ultimate review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The ROG Phone 6D Ultimate justifies its name with an array of top specs and features. The Dimensity 9000+ is every bit as good as the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 that powers the 6 Pro. That applies to both performance and power efficiency, with battery life another real highlight. When combined with the large, 165Hz display, the gaming experience is among the best you’ll find on any mobile device – provided you’re happy with Android apps. When the phone inevitably starts getting warm, you can connect the included fan and make use of the 6D Ultimate’s new cooling portal. However, the latter will only be beneficial for long gaming sessions. It’s also a big, bulky phone, and that only gets worse when you connect the cooler. But despite the high price tag, it may still tempt avid mobile gamers looking for the absolute best experience.

Asus ROG Phone 6D Ultimate review: Take your game to another Dimension
Source: Pocket Lint English
What makes the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate special, is pretty much the same as what has made any other ROG Phone special: the multimedia experience. It's big and bold, but with its large, excellent display combined with the best stereo speakers we've ever heard on a phone, it's fantastic for gaming and consuming media on.

Asus ROG Phone 6D Ultimate review: MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000 Plus is one of the most powerful mobile chipsets ever made
Source: XDA Developers English
Having used this device, there’s no denying that it’s powerful. The MediaTek Dimensity 9000 Plus is really powerful in the computational department, but the GPU is where it seems to falter in comparison to the competition. I was surprised at how much this device struggled with The Simpsons: Hit & Run when I’ve had nothing but good experiences previously with this generation of chipsets. However, it did a great job with Genshin Impact. Whether it’s Asus’ implementation or the chipset itself I’m not sure, but nevertheless, it’s hard to say that this phone lives up to the “Ultimate” moniker. If anything, I feel like this phone should have been posited as an alternative edition of the 6 Pro, kind of like how the OPPO Find X5 Pro Dimensity Edition launched in China. “Ultimate” implies better when I think it’s more of a sidegrade between some of the downgrades and upgrades. There are benefits to both devices. Superior battery life and emulation performance go to the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, whereas the Dimensity 9000 Plus is an arguably more powerful chipset overall thanks to the beefed-up CPU and nearly-on-par GPU.

First Impressions: Asus ROG Phone 6D Ultimate Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Asus ROG Phone 6D Ultimate is clearly all-in when it comes to attracting gamers, which is especially evident in the high-performance internals (and their associated cooling system), along with the high-spec screen that even boasts a 165Hz refresh rate. From our early impressions, these have all functioned rather well, although it’s too soon for us to give a final verdict. However, I will also be keeping a keen eye on how some of the gaming-adjacent features stack up; for instance, whether the camera is worthy of such an expensive device, and how intuitive the software will be to use for all purposes. We were certainly impressed with the Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro, so I am hoping that this highly similar handset can confidently follow in its footsteps.

ASUS ROG Phone 6D Ultimate Unboxing, Quick Review Philippines: Snapdragon Slayer?
Source: Unbox English
The ASUS ROG Phone 6D Ultimate is made for hardcore gamers in the Philippines with the incredible performance the Dimensity 9000+ has to offer. However, we’re wary of its pricing and is a direct competitor to the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 version of the ROG Phone 6.

90% ROG Phone 6D Ultimate review: an unlikely hero underneath
Source: Phone Arena English
So, this is the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate… as powerful, as ridiculously overkill as you might expect. Is it better than the ROG Phone 6 Pro? We kind of… don’t feel like it is. It’s just as good, don’t get us wrong, but we couldn’t really feel a measurable improvement… an “Ultra-ness” if you will. However, gamers want what they want and we are pretty sure that some will love the new AeroActive Portal and the LPDDR5X module, even if it’s just for bragging rights. We did not find the MediaTek chip to be inferior in any way in real-life use and if we had to choose whether we want to use the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate or ROG Phone 6 Pro — we’d honestly just throw a dart. Or just choose between Space Gray and Storm White. Now, the 6D Ultimate does come with an AeroActive 6 cooler bundled in, so if the package price is lower than buying the ROG Phone 6 Pro and the fan separately, we’d recommend the Ultra. Simply because we find the ROG Phone experience to be at its best when you have the cooler as well. And, of course, some markets in the world will only get one or the other.

90% MediaTek's Dimensity 9000 Plus has entered the race – Asus ROG Phone 6D Ultimate review
Source: Techradar English
Asus and MediaTek have proven that flagship gaming phone power isn't a one-horse, Qualcomm race with the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate. A reimagining of the excellent 6 and 6 Pro and launching alongside both. With a new heat dissipation system, the phone games cooler than anything we've tested. Also packing excellent speakers, a mighty screen, and a fun, gaming-optimized UI. While the camera isn't going to blow you away, for a gaming phone, the 6D hits its mark.

92% ASUS ROG Phone 6D Ultimate review
Source: GSM Arena English
If it has been Asus' strategy to diversify the chip supplier and have an equally good ROG phone made with MediaTek silicon, well, they've succeeded. We don't think anyone would notice the subtle differences between the two phones. It's impressive to think that MediaTek is closing the gap on Qualcomm when it comes to flagship chipset performance. But the extra overclocking and cooling ingenuity it took on Asus' part also highlighted that the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipsets remain class-leading. MediaTek won't be breathing on Qualcomm's neck just yet - at least not this year. With all the extra work that Asus has put into making the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate, we'd say users will be happy with either flagship ROG phone. You might have your preference, but we'd say - go for whichever is more easily available near you or with whichever one is cheaper. They are both really good.
