Smartphones do a lot more than just making calls. They have become the primary cameras we use and the primary screens we look at. We all spend multiple hours each day with our phones, but we don't do the same things. If you're on a budget, you might have to pick and choose features that you prioritise. Manufacturers realise this, and have come up with multiple different models that are very good for specific things. We have selfie smartphones, ones with big batteries, and ones with more style than substance. As for the gamers amongst us, we look for phones with the best possible processor in our budget.

  • SUPER COOL
    Morgantyler360 . (Aug 11, 2018) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    The ROG phone would be awesome, I am a gamer just like all of you but the only problem i forsee with this phone is it being expensive upon release so most younger gamers like me would not be able to experience this phone.

  • Mind-blowing purchase
    Rakshith Kumar on Flipkart
    Anyone who's been a long time Asus ROG user would easily end up buying this phone. Note that it's a gaming phone, you will have to compromise with the camera quality and the battery backup. If you are looking for a phone with any one these two primary reason, there are better phone's in the same price range. That being said, I managed to get better shots on this phone than the One Plus 6T (sometimes). Battery drains pretty quick but the charging is pretty quick too. I end up charging my phone twice a day since I've been using this. I compared the graphics on PUBG with One Plus 6T and definitely notice changes when the HDR Display and 90HZ is turned on. It is not noticeable unless your compare the colors and viewing angles. Air triggers are extremely helpful in games like PUBG, I can run and shoot at the same time which other phone's can't without a 3rd party triggers. Game mode and Aura Lighting is simply amazing which makes you feel that you did not waste your money. This phone surely catches everyone's attention easily. Speakers on the phone is the best I've heard so far, the dual front speakers are crisp and loud. Customizations and features provided are better than any other phone in the market. If you are a gamer on mobile, simply go for it. If you use your phone mainly for camera and need a better battery backup, choose a different one. Hoping they would release the phone case soon at least.
