Asus ROG-The Ultimate Gaming Phone + 4 Gaming Accessories

Asus ROG Gaming Smartphone has just been unleashed to the world especially to pro gamers who need a phone which can gratify their gaming needs. Asus ROG (Republic of Gamers) is a beast which boost insane performance and you can now play PUBG, Mobile Legends and Showgun Legends at HD frame rates without any hiccups. Here are some appetizers as to what you can find under the hood of ROG: 2.96GHz Snapdragon 845 Chipset (World's fastest speed-binned Snapdragon), a whopping 8GB of RAM and up to 512GB of internal storage plus a huge 4,000mAh battery. Are you game? Take my money already. *drooling*

Asus ROG-The Ultimate Gaming Phone!

Holding Asus ROG in your hand, you will be greeted by a 6-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with an unbelievable 90Hz refresh rate and response time of 1ms. Now your gaming experience will be more immersive and super fluid as if you are in the game. Throw in a wide-screen 18:9 aspect ratio display and you get a holy-gorgeous gaming visual. Moreover Asus has also added an independent image processing chip in ROG which will enhance HDR display for your gaming and video playback needs. Dayum!

Glorious 6-inch FHD+ AMOLED display...aww...

What else will you get with Asus ROG? Since it is essentially still a smartphone, there will be a 12MP + 8MP dual-camera for with wide angle set up for the shutterbugs in you. Flip it up front and you can take advantage of the 8MP selfie shooter. Besides, there will also be NFC support for such high-end device. Now here comes the important part: Sound system. For ultra-immersive gaming experience, ROG is equipped with two front-facing stereo speakers to let you fully enjoy your game. On top of that there will also be a 3.5mm headphone jack on ROG should you want to enjoy all the sounds alone which is sorely missing from Razer and Black Shark.

Yes you can still plug in your headphones to play on Asus ROG!

Ok! Let's admit it! The 4,000mAh battery will not be able to last you long when you are playing graphics-intensive games. Knowing that battery juice is one of the top priorities for gamer, Asus threw in their 20W HyperCharge direct charging which can charge your ROG to 60% in just 33 minutes. Interestingly, besides the usual bottom USB-C port for your charging needs, ROG comes with a second side-mounted USB-C port which will make it more convenient for gamers to charge their ROG phone while playing in landscape mode. Talking about excellent design here!

The extra side-mounted USB-C port.

It is obvious that the team behind Asus ROG has put in a lot of effort to make this device truly a gaming holy grail. Asus has added 3 AirTrigger Ultrasonic Touch Sensors that can be programmed for custom actions especially in games. Wow! Besides the front-blasting dual stereo speaker, ROG is also integrated with advanced haptic actuator which will give you responsive force-feedback while you take bullets through your chest. Ouch!

It is time to go X Mode.

If you feel like you need that extra boost for your gaming needs, turn on the ROG's X Mode! Yupe! Essentially when you switch to X Mode the performance of your ROG will be elevated even more as it raises the minimum clock speed and restricts tasks to its 4 cores. Apart from that, to further augment ROG's God-like performance, the device comes with 3D-chamber design for better cooling. Certainly you will not be caught off guard while unleashing your ultimate skill to savagely wipe out your opponents. No more freezing! Ha :D

Yes the Aura RGB lighting can be fully customized to your liking.

Another novelty that I truly love is the fact that Asus has added Aura RGB lighting around the logo at the back of its stunning 3D curved Gorilla Glass back panel-This is when artistry meets with performance huh. Will you be surprised if I tell you that you can even customize the lighting effects for notifications and calls? Goodness.

4-Mobile Desktop Dock
The 6-inch display isn't big enough for you to play games on ROG? No problemo says the developer in Asus. Enter the Mobile Desktop Dock which will connect your Asus ROG to an external 4k UHD monitor, mouse and keyboard which will of course translate to even better gaming experience. The phone will act as a secondary display while it is being docked and you also have the option to add 5.1 channel surround sound system. So now you will know where the bullets are coming from. Dodge!

Last but not least, yours truly is utterly impressed with this monstrous Asus ROG gaming phone. Though it will go up against some pedigrees such as Razer and Black Shark, I believe ROG will come out victorious with its 300, 000 points on AnTutu benchmark.  Slated to hit stores in America, India and Malaysia as early as July 2018, no pricing details has been released yet. Are you going to buy this ultimate gaming phone?
