90.2% Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate review: Currently the best gaming smartphone | Notebookcheck
The Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate is a gaming smartphone without compromises. Almost all hardware is high-end, such as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, 16 GB of RAM, 512 GB of storage and a 6.78-inch 165 Hz display. The list doesn't end there, because a 6000 mAh battery and an external fan are also included, among other things.

If you want the fastest phone ever, and you relish the quirks and weird options that make it so, the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate is the phone to buy.

ASUS ROG Phone 7 Ultimate review - Still the ultimate gaming phone in the market
Source: Tech Nave English
Undoubtedly, the ASUS ROG Phone 7 Ultimate is the best gaming phone to date which is no surprise. It has the best specs in its segment with a great display, large battery capacity and software settings that can be easily set. It also comes with a nice cooling fan, so we think this phone is worth RM4999. That being said, if you're looking for cheaper options due to budget constraints, you can still check out the Black Shark Pro 5 with a 108MP camera at RM3999. There's also the Red Magic 8 Pro, which has the same chipset but is slightly more affordable at RM4299. The choice is yours.

Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate Review
Source: Yugatech English
While there’s not a huge difference between the new ROG Phone 7 series now compared to its predecessor — the upgrades are typical and expected. Nothing mind-blowing really, but what else can you expect from a smartphone that has everything you’d wish for when it comes to mobile gaming? In hindsight, it’s really hard to top yourself. This could be a blessing and a curse — a blessing because you’re always the top choice in your category and you hold the trophy; on the other hand, it is also a curse because it will be very hard to exceed expectations coming from previous generations and fans might find it more wise to pick up the older unit instead of this new one if the performance and feature difference does not significantly favor the 7 Ultimate. Nonetheless, the Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate is the best gaming phone in the 2023 market.

80% Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate review: The king of gaming, but where are his subjects?
Source: Nextpit EN English
In what seems to be an annual occurrence. Asus releases the best gaming smartphone on the market. It's hard to argue with that. However, is the title 'King of Gaming Phones' really relevant? Battery life is excellent, making it the best on the market in my opinion. The 165 Hz AMOLED screen is sublime for consuming content. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2's performance is top-notch, and the temperature control is top-notch as well. But the photo quality is still tragically disappointing for such an expensive smartphone. I'm sick of the excuses made to include macro sensors and middling sensors on the grounds that this is a gaming smartphone. Asus is also always a rather poor advocate of a decent update policy. Personally, I'm much less enthusiastic about mobile gaming. We have overpowered machines that are perfectly capable of running AAA titles which is very close to a console experience.

ASUS ROG Phone 7 Ultimate Review: Small Steps To Stay Ahead
Source: Lowyat.net English
With there effectively being only one competitor left, the ASUS ROG Phone 7 Ultimate doesn’t have to do much to entice mobile gamers to pick it over the one remaining competition. Which probably explains the why it’s so similar to the generation that came before. That being said, the company did make improvements to the cooling system of the phone, which is not something that is usually only appreciated by those who engage in the hobby for hours on end. On that note, as mentioned earlier, the presence of the cooling vent is the only difference between the base and Ultimate models. With that in mind, hardcore gamers should have no real reason to pick the base model over the Ultimate.

If gaming is your priority and if you are ready to compromise a little on the camera performance, this is currently the most capable smartphone that is available in the market. A lower price could have attracted a bigger audience but the gaming hardware used in the phone aptly serves their purpose. Asus didn’t cut any corners with the smartphone’s gaming performance and it will surely help pro-gamers to stay ahead of the curve. If you don’t want to invest in a separate handheld console as well as a smartphone, the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate is quite an impressive blend of the two rolled-in one powerhouse of a device.

The phone does feel like a complete package for gaming enthusiasts as the Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate comes with the best specs offered in the flagship category phones. But like always, we will only recommend you to purchase this phone if you have certain money to purchase this device. Yet, if we have to choose an alternative, we suggest you go with the ZTE Nubia Red Magic 8 Pro. However, if you prefer something fancy, you can also consider looking for the Vivo X Fold Plus. It got better multitasking tasking attributes with foldable elements. However, Asus is a laser focus on delivering great value when it comes to the mobile gaming experience. It barely gives completion to some brands. If you want to experience high-level gaming and gaming only, you should consider the ROG Phone 7 Utmiate for sure!

After about a month, this is our review of the ROG Phone 7.

Despite looking very similar to its predecessor, the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate proves that ASUS knows how to make gaming phones well with its balanced, gamer-focused design and gamer-centric accessories that aim to give you the best experience even during long gaming sessions. The remaining factor that is unanswered is how much the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate will be priced in the Philippines. For comparision, the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate was priced at Php 69,995 last year. While the global pricing of the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate is 1399 Euros or around Php 85.5k, our best guess is that it will be priced somewhere around Php 70k.

ASUS ROG Phone 7 Ultimate Review: A Mobile Gaming Powerhouse
Source: Hot Hardware English
This phone is big, powerful, and too expensive for most people—we'd have to assume. ASUS hasn't specified the price for the Ultimate variant, but the regular ASUS ROG Phone 7 will retail for $1,000. You likely aren't most people, though, if you are on page-three of a gaming phone review. So, perhaps you like the idea of carrying a phone that can tear through even the most demanding mobile games without breaking a sweat even if it's crazy expensive. That's the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate. This device plays the most demanding mobile games of today in the highest visual and auditory quality, and it even does it for a long time between charges. ASUS has improved its software over the years, going from some painful shortcomings to only a few minor annoyances. We won't tell you the ASUS build of Android is as smooth or intuitive as what you get on a Pixel, but it's not a deal breaker either. The bugs are relatively minor, and ASUS managed to launch this phone with the latest Android software with several promised updates. We'd like to see longer update support a la the Pixel 7 and Galaxy S, but the two-year OS and four-year security guarantee offer here isn't bad. A cooling fan for a phone may seem a bit bit silly to some, and it's definitely not easy to carry around, but it does work as advertised. With the AeroActive Cooler attached, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 never throttles. In addition, if you like fancy RGB lights, the cooler has you covered. But at the end of the day, we're still talking about mobile games. Will a few extra frames per second matter in Apex Legends or Fortnite? Likely not, unless you're a pro gamer or eSports aficionado. Is a better, more powerful mobile gaming experience worth hundreds of extra dollars over other more traditional flagship phones? Not for most smartphone buyers, but in the gaming niche, the ROG Phone 7 makes makes sense and delivers serious performance where it counts.

The ROG Phone 7 Ultimate isn't your average gaming phone. ASUS made dozens of changes to the underlying Android kernel to deliver the ultimate gaming experience, and that's immediately evident the moment you start using the phone. This is a phone built to blaze through visually-demanding games, and it manages to do just that. Combine that with an aggressive design, sublime 165Hz screen, astounding hardware, a gargantuan battery, clean software with more customizability than any other phone, and you get an overall package that is just marvelous. This is the fastest phone I've ever used, and if you want a flagship that stands out, the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate should be on the top of your list.

Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate | Unboxing & Gaming Review
Source: Tech Spurt English
Unboxing the Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate with a review of the gaming performance, battery life and beyond. I've been testing the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate for a few days with Genshin Impact, Call of Duty etc and here's my impressions of (the best?) gaming smartphone of 2023. As far as specs and design goes, the Asus ROG Phone 7 series is very similar vs the 6D etc. The biggest upgrade is that Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 which ensures super-smooth gaming experiences, whatever you fancy. That near-7-inch AMOLED screen is another stunner with 165Hz refresh support, while the stereo speaker setup is unbelievably loud. Asus has bunged its usual Game Genie features onto the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate (and regular model). And even with X Mode enabled and Genshin Impact set to maximum visuals, I found the battery life on this gaming phone was good for five solid hours of action. So it ain't cheap, but the Asus ROG Phone 7 and 7 Ultimate are the greatest gaming phones when it comes to features and accessory support. Of course, Red Magic and Black Shark rivals offer the Snapdragon performance on a stricter budget, if you can't stretch to this premium price.

100% ASUS ROG Phone 7 Ultimate Review: A mobile gaming powerhouse
Source: Android Headlines English
ASUS has outdone itself once again when it comes to making what really does feel like the best phone available for mobile gaming. With a few key improvements to the cooling, and updated hardware for even better performance, the ROG Phone 7 and ROG Phone 7 Ultimate are the cream of the crop in this small niche of the smartphone market. But neither phone is perfect and they won’t be for everyone. No matter how good the device is, there are simply going to be more suitable options for some users. And that’s ok. Not everyone is into mobile gaming or into it enough to warrant spending the higher price that ASUS demands. Not to mention the camera definitely takes a backseat to all the gaming features. While more than fine for my personal needs, there are better smartphone cameras out there. And you may be a user that values that more than what ASUS is offering here. ASUS plans to launch the ROG Phone 7 and ROG Phone 7 Ultimate in the US sometime in late Q2. Which probably puts the official US release closer to Summertime. As for pricing, the phone will start at $999.99 for the ROG Phone 7. Pricing for the Ultimate model hasn’t been confirmed yet. If you don’t want to wait for the new model, ASUS is still selling it’s excellent ROG Phone 6 and ROG Phone 6 Pro devices.

90% Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate review: gaming phone royalty with some hidden talents
Source: Digital Trends English
Asus states that a massive 4 million hours are spent gaming on ROG Phones around the world every week, a figure that increased by 36% during 2022. With those kinds of numbers, it’s hard to still pass mobile gaming off as a niche, as there’s clearly a big audience for a phone that makes mobile gaming more fun and you a better player. The ROG Phone series has long led the pack, and the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate continues that tradition. It’s enormously capable, the design is cool without being silly, the special features are well thought-out and useful, and the software is mature and reliable. It’s definitely focused on gaming, but the twist is if you’re after a strong multimedia phone in general, the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate fits the bill too. It’s expensive, but so is every top-spec flagship smartphone today. It’s not a big leap forward over the ROG Phone 6 Pro, but Asus has refined and improved the device in all the right places. Is it only for mobile gamers? Yes, and no. The vast majority of the features are most relevant to people who play top, power-intensive games for a minimum of 30 minutes every day — but it’s also worth considering if video and audio performance is also important. The ROG Phone 7 Ultimate excels in all these areas and provided you’re happy to accept the compromises, this is a great purchase and a phone that will last you for years.

Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate First Impressions
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The ROG Phone 7 models really aren't for everyone. They only make sense for those who value gaming performance above all else. If you're extremely competitive, like being able to play games comfortably for long hours, and if you will use the triggers and software tweaks, you are Asus' target audience. At these prices, you could buy a very capable and slick modern flagship Android device or even an iPhone. However, if you're the type to spend a few lakhs on a good gaming laptop and upgrade your desktop PC every few years, the ROG Phone 7's price won't feel like such a stretch.

Overall, not a lot has changed about the ROG Phone for yet another generation. The ROG Phone 7 Ultimate gets the latest and greatest chipset Qualcomm has to offer and a few other specs touch-ups here and there, like the boosted display performance. Fundamentally, the core formula hasn't been altered, and that's arguably a good thing. Asus' laser focus on delivering the best mobile gaming experience remains barely challenged for yet another year, with most manufacturers focusing on creating more mainstream products. Even in the face of an ever-shrinking accessory ecosystem, we still believe the ROG Phone remains on top of the gaming crowd. Their dedication to gaming remains so impressive that it alone earns it the champion title. The ROG Phone 7 Ultimate leverages some of the best possible hardware in a unique way, optimizing everything from low-level integration to high-level software for the best possible gaming experience. The flexibility and number of tuning options on offer are still unmatched, and so is the versatility of the in-depth control mapping and macro system.

Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate review: The ultimate multimedia smartphone
Source: Pocket Lint English
Asus' reign as the best gaming phone maker isn't about to end anytime soon. Like a lot of phones in 2023, the improvements are quite incremental on the 6 Pro, but there's so much performance here for those who really care about getting the most from their intensive games. When you add that to a fantastic display, the best stereo speakers on any phone, a big battery and one decent camera, and you have a great all-round media consumption device. There are compromises with this phone. Beyond the usual expensive price point, there's the fact that it's a huge, heavy phone and the supporting ultrawide and macro cameras aren't great even if the primary snapper is actually decent this year. Still, as long as having a small, compact phone or having the best cameras isn't at the top of your list, it does so much really well. It's probably our favourite phone for watching movies and TV shows on and will remain that way until another manufacturer manages to up their loudspeaker game. It's a brilliant all-round phone, even if it's not for everyone.

Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate Preview
Source: PC Mag English
The Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate comes out as a winner in many categories. Its screen offers a crushing combo of size, resolution, speed, and responsiveness. The phone's Snapdragon processor, particularly with X-Mode engaged, should give gamers the edge they need to tackle torrents of foes. Its battery lasts long enough for you to mow down every last zombie, trooper, or NPC. And the advanced audio should tickle the ears of even the pickiest listeners. For a premium price, however, you miss out on some premium comforts like wireless charging, high-end cameras, and a more rugged build. If those features don't matter to you as much as the absolute best gaming performance, we can easily recommend the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate as a clutch weapon for your arsenal. But if you're looking for better overall balance in addition to gaming chops, you'll want to stick with our Editors' Choice winner, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.

The Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate is just that: the ultimate gaming phone. It has top of the range specs, a superb display, a battery big enough to cope with the games it churns through, and the most customisable software settings I’ve ever seen in a phone. You also pay big for all these features, with a price akin to the most expensive smartphones from Apple and Samsung. But this phone comes with 512GB storage and a charger and cooling fan accessory in the box, so if you are a hardcore mobile gamer at least Asus won’t skimp on the extras. It’s a big, heavy phone though and the design is garish, and you have to ask yourself if you really do need all its power. Asus’s four years of security updates is good enough for me to happily recommend this phone, but there are cheaper options if you don’t need something quite so overkill.

80% Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate review: A good gaming phone with obscene battery life
Source: Tom's Guide English
If you think of a smartphone as little more than a handheld gaming device that also takes phone calls, you'll find the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate (or the regular ROG Phone 7) pretty appealing. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset delivers best-in-class performance, the screen is bright and colorful and I can't get over that 18-hour battery life. The flaws begin to appear when you consider the ROG Phone 7 more as a smartphone instead of a gaming device. The cameras are adequate at best, software support is minimal and features you'd expect from a high-end flagship phone like extended software support or IP68 water resistance simply aren't there. For the price Asus has set, you might be better off turning to phones like the OnePlus 11 or Galaxy S23 Plus, which run on the same processor as the ROG Phone 7, deliver impressive battery life in their own right, and also have better cameras. Certainly, there are more complete phones out there than the ROG Phone 7, though as far as gaming-only features are concerned, this Asus phone stands out.

80% Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate is a superb gaming phone. It’s one of the most powerful Android handsets you can buy, has room-filling bassy speakers and a suite of features to improve portable gaming, including the AirTriggers which is a massive improvement on the touchscreen controls. You will need to compromise on the camera quality here though, with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and iPhone 14 Pro Max offering a great deal more versatility for the steep price. The biggest issue here, however, is that the extra features (namely the animation screen panel and enhanced cooling) provided by the Ultimate edition arguably don’t justify the inflated cost. With the exact same specs found on both of the latest ROG models, I’d recommend sticking with the more affordable Asus ROG Phone 7 instead if you’re not fussed about frivolous features.

The Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate is tailored for mobile phone gamers that want to tweak Android games while playing them at their highest graphics settings. New additions like the phone's new Snapdragon chip, controller options and upgraded cooling system further refine that experience, while providing a sharp refresh rate with fast speeds that benefit nongaming tasks like apps and reading. Most people will likely be happier with a phone like a Galaxy S23 that has better cameras and a slimmer body. Also, many Android games run just fine on regular phones. For a gamer that puts specs above all and wants lots and lots of customizable options, this ROG Phone 7 Ultimate is packed with them. We haven't yet reviewed the competing RedMagic 8 Pro series which has the same chip with a lower $649 starting price. However, the software experience on the Asus is very good, achieving a nice balance between being a gaming device and a mobile phone.

3 things we love about the Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate (and 1 we don’t)
Source: PC World English
To be fair, the photo quality of the ROG Phone line has improved over the years. It’s not a horrible camera—it just doesn’t come close enough to the other flagship smartphones in its price range and sticks out as a glaring weakness amidst a whole heap of awesomeness. And of course, it really depends on how much you personally care about camera performance in your phone, but it bums me out and I really hope Asus can continue to improve on it. Regardless of the weak camera performance, the rest of this phone is a beast. The Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate stands out from the crowd with cutting edge features. That’s the key, really. Fully loaded, enthusiast-class gaming phones like this help push the entire mobile ecosystem forward, and I’m thrilled that manufacturers like Asus continue to innovate in the space. Mainstream phones might not have adopted features like vapor chambers and high refresh rate screens as quickly if gaming phones didn’t blaze the trail first. Now if only we could get at least one headphone jack back on other phones…

80% Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate review: cool customer
Source: Stuff TV English
It might not mix up the formula, but the latest ROG phone is still deserving of that Ultimate moniker. It has a great display, stellar sound and superb battery life when you aren’t gaming – and impeccable performance, streamlined software and useful accessories when you are. There’s little else out there that’s as purpose-built for playtime. Frame rates aren’t substantially ahead of the current crop of Snapdragon-powered flagships, though, and while the main camera takes a decent enough daylight photo, the secondary lenses just aren’t up to the same standard as the ones seen on similarly-priced rivals. Those phones aren’t as in-yer-face as the Asus on the design front, either. If you’ve got a serious Genshin Impact addiction, though? The ROG Phone 7 Ultimate will be all the phone you’ll need.

Source: Phone Arena English
Would we recommend the ROG Phone 7? Yes... for some people. Those being gamers and phone geeks — it's pretty obvious. The phone's design and branding doesn't hide who it's for. But we also appreciate that improvements in the camera and software updates over the past year have made these phones more suitable for "generic" use. After all, if you are spending good money on a smartphone — it would be kind of nice if it can be mentioned in the same breath as Samsung and Pixel. Even though we spent our time with the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate, we would say the non-Ultimate is the way to go. The regular version is just as overkill. It has the same specs, cameras, speakers and screen. So, while we enjoyed the Ultimate, we would recommend one buy the regular ROG 7 and pick up the AeroActive Cooler 7 for it separately — it will still end up a cheaper package than the Ultimate. The ROG Phone 7 is launching in Europe right now, starting from €999 for the regular model and €1399 for the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate (bundled with AeroActive Cooler 7, a €110 value).

95% Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate review: High score
Source: Android Police English
Had Asus not sent me a ROG Phone 7 Ultimate to review, I would have still bought it once it launched in the US. With the ROG 5 and 6, Asus proved that gaming phones are my preference. Not only does the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate include a huge battery that can last for a couple of days, but you also get top-of-the-line specs plus an internal design that keeps things cool thanks to vapor chambers and layers of cooling material. It's a phone with a purpose that doubles as an excellent daily driver. Now that Asus has committed to longer support, addressed many of its camera woes, and is sticking to a specific form factor compatible with Asus-branded peripherals, there's very little to complain about. Yes, the price is high, but if you're looking for a budget option, Redmagic has your back. Then again, if you're looking for the best gaming phone money can buy, the Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate should be at the top of your list.

ASUS ROG Phone 7 Ultimate Review: Hardware Beast
Source: ben's gadget reviews English
The ROG Phone 7 Ultimate from ASUS brings a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, a 6.8-inch 165Hz OLED display, two touch sensitive shoulder triggers, two awesome symmetrical speakers, and a detachable fan that doubles as a sub-woofer. The whole package is pricey at 1300 euro, but if you're a serious mobile gamer, you won't find a more capable smartphone than this in 2023.

Qualcomm Adreno 740: Graphics chip for smartphones and tablets that is integrated within the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC. Qualcomm claims that it is 25% faster than the Adreno 730 in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and first benchmarks show that the GPU can beat the Apple A16 iGPU (previously the fastest smartphone GPU). 

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


SD 8 Gen 2: High-end SoC for smartphones that was introduced in late 2022 with a fast prime core based on a ARM Cortex-X3 architecture clocked at up to 3.2 GHz. Two more performance cores are based on the A715 and also support only 64 bit applications. The two additional A710 cores support also 32 bit applications as do the power saving Cortex-A510 cores. In addition to the processor cores, the SoC integrates a WiFi 7 modem, a Hexagon DSP (for AI acceleration) and a Spectra ISP. The integrated memory controller supports fast LPDDR5x memory with up to 4,200 MHz. 5G is included in the chip with the Snapdragon X70 modem.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


6.78":

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.
