Reviews for the Asus ROG Phone 6D

88.6% Asus ROG Phone 6D and 6D Ultimate Smartphone review – Gaming phones with great accessories | Notebookcheck
If you don't mind not having a Snapdragon processor, Asus' ROG Phone 6D or 6D Ultimate may be an interesting alternative for mobile gamers. The slimmed-down phones are equipped with a MediaTek SoC. But are they a really good choice for real gamers?
82% Asus Rog Phone 6D Review – It’S Great, But Why?
Source: Pokde English
The ASUS ROG Phone 6D is an excellent choice not just for gaming but also for everyday use. We’re already past the point of gaming phones severely lacking in the camera department and it has become a viable all-rounded with great performance to boot. Your only dilemma would be choosing between this or the standard ROG Phone 6 but either way, both devices will be more than able to serve you well. I do believe we have come to the limits, or close to it, for high end smartphones that the benefits of having a stronger chip is minimal for the most part. For next year, the focus should either be on efficiency, having more apps take full advantage of strong hardware, or an evolution to justify pushing the limits of performance even further other than just Genshin Impact. After all, what’s the point of pushing to 240Hz if most apps and games ends up throttling or can only do 60FPS and run at 60Hz at best?

Review – ROG Phone 6D: How’s the Dimensity 9000+ chipset?
Source: NLT English
And this also proves that it doesn’t really matter who makes your chipset if the chipset’s architectural design is not good in the first place. Both the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and the Dimensity 9000+ chipset are made by TSMC’s 4nm process, yet the Snapdragon is clearly better.
