ASUS has made a lot of ROG Phones since they first launched in 2018, and with each revision, it comes closer to perfection… Can innovation really keep moving fast enough to keep a smartphone interesting?

  • Proud owner of a ROG3 here but, I have no idea why Asus isn't pushing AOSP Custom ROM development community for the ROG devices. ROG phones with enforced custom ROM userbase WILL be nightmare to literally all other premium gaming phone manufacturers!

  • About Asus committing to updates, I have an Asus Zenfone 5Z (5 in some regions) and I have gotten 2 major updates, from Android 8 up until Android 10. I am satisfied with what I've gotten from Asus on the software side and their major revamp of their software was quite nice to see, both on ZenUI and the ROGUI.

  • Asus needs to do better with regards to it's phones releasing in the USA as well. Back with the ROG Phone 2, they released it first in china (which is fine) but it took them over 6 months to bring it to the USA and even when they finally did it was DOUBLE the price.

  • Is Asus doing a bad job with communication or what's the deal with almost every review/video missing the 8gb RAM, 128gb version of the regular 5? That one is 799€ which comes to just 945 USD. That's pretty nuts considering basically everything else is the same. Also many channels/sites seem to be under the impression that the Ultimate edition is the only white version which is false. There's a white version of the regular 5 too but the pro only comes in black as far as I know.

  • Unfortunately fails the JerryRigEverything test. Still the stereo speakers and gaming features are winning me back, However I didn't buy a ROG Phone 3 because the accessories weren't available in Australia and that's the entire point. I'm on a Pixel 2 XL and been desperate to upgrade for years. The ROG has been the only one to come close. The camera is now decent enough, since I got Sony WF-1000XM3 I no longer care about the stereo jack but it's good to have back. However I am concerned about longevity, my PC gets updates and so does my Pixel Phone, the only reason I need to upgrade my Pixel is due to wanting new features better controller, more performance and battery life. However if I could replace my current battery easier I'd just keep my current phone, so now I'd seriously buy a phone with a replacable battery again. Rooting a phone for upgrades is an important feature to have but not one I will use as it breaks being able to pay things with your phone or watch unfortunately. Still Google has broken that many things I almost prefer to be on the original version the phone came with they always tend to be the best, however there's probably a few fixes I couldn't do without. I'm less of a fan with Android updates than Windows updates these days. Up until Kitkat it was all improvements since then it's been change for the sake of change and taking away features that everyone loved for Google inferior simplistic way of how everyone should use a phone.

    ShajirrShajirr23 dagen geleden
  • I love this phone but it's the only flagship phone this year that failed multiple durability tests. The design has weak points in the frame and not only bends, but breaks. Shattering the glass and rendering the phone unusable. It's not that I plan to bend my phone but as a phone targeted towards gamers and the ASUS claim being the best gaming phone out there - durability should be important. There isn't even an IP rating on this phone. It's just not acceptable in 2021. Ditch the backside screen gimmick and invest the money into durability and an IP rating and I'm sold. Until then, what a disappointment. So close but so far. Sorry Linus you aren't taking someone down on the bus with this. It may be heavy, but a wet fart can damage it in multiple ways. All phones should be wet fart proof. Just sayin'.
