Are you one of the mobile phone users who love to play video games when feeling bored? Although many people play video games on their smartphones, not many companies consider it a mainstream rend. Asus is one of a few companies that design high-end smartphones specifically for gaming. A lot of premium phones are advertised as gaming phones because of their high-powered processor, display design, and they do run games relatively well. However, the Asus ROG phone series is the best when it comes to gaming phone.
The ROG phone and ROG phone 2 were great but the company didn't focus too much on the design before, but what we have now is a relatively much better-designed version of the gamer aesthetic and slick looking phone. The front face is plain black, with two stereo speakers above and below the display, but there is also a 3.5mm audio jack. The front camera is in one corner of the screen which means you get a seamless user experience while playing video games or watching videos on the phone.
The rear side of the phone has a large centered ROG logo that lights up with different colors when Xcode is activated. A small transparent panel shows off the phone's elaborate cooling system and tiny vent to make it cool while playing games. Although, there is only one drawback of having such a glossy background. The phone slides around on most surfaces and leaves fingerprint marks on the cover. The company has used corning Gorilla Glass 6 on the front and Gorilla Glass 3 on the rear side.
The phone is slightly heavy and not for everyone. The main reason for its weight is due to the 6,000mAh battery and cooling system. This isn't a phone for you if you prefer slim sleek designs. Asus has gone with a 6.59-inch 1080x2340 screen, and its biggest advantage is an unprecedented 144Hz refresh rate. You can buy the ROG Phone 3 starting in early August with either 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for Rs. 49,999, or 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for Rs. 57,999. In other countries, Asus will offer a staggering 16GB / 512GB option as well.
ROG phone 3 features a 64-megapixel primary camera with a Sony sensor and f/1.8 aperture. The second camera is a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle one, while the third one is a 5-megapixel macro camera. The front camera features a 24-megapixel f/2.0 selfie camera. The ROG Phone 3 isn't going to be an option for everyone, but if gaming is a huge passion, and if you don't mind a huge phone, you'll definitely like this one. Our full review is coming up soon, so do stay tuned.
