ASUS ROG lineup of phones were one of the first smartphones to be made that were dedicated to gaming and that only. The processing power, the features and the design - all of it was catered to gamers, if the name Republic Of Gamers (ROG) wasn’t enough to figure that out. However, the first ROG phone was too much in-your-face type, and wasn’t good enough as a regular daily driver, and could only do gaming well. With the second iteration, ASUS decided to dial that back a bit, and make the phone a better overall package, in all departments ranging from cameras to design - and it did help the phone gain a little more popularity. Now with the ROG Phone 3, the phone seems to be a lot more of a complete deal, and seems like a phone that would be great for gaming, but also for everyday use.
ROG Phone 3 has finally been released, and it seems as if ASUS has also figured out the pricing strategy of the phone. If we talk about the specs of the device, then the phone comes with a Snapdragon 865+, an AMOLED display with 144Hz refresh rate, and a massive 6000 mAh battery unit. If it wasn’t already clear enough, all of this has been mainly added so the gaming experience for users can be top-notch. The shoulder triggers on the phone have also been upgraded, as previously they were able to carry out only 2 commands, but are now able to do 5. The phone will be running on Android 10 based on the ROG UI inside the phone.
The most premium variant of the phone actually sports an insane, but also unneeded 16GB RAM inside, and is priced at 1099 Euros. The second variant is of 12GB RAM, and comes at 999 Euros, and finally the cheapest one houses 8GB RAM and Snapdragon 865 instead of 865+, and that’s priced at 799 Euros. All of these phones will actually come with a 3 month trial of Google Stadia Pro, which is a cloud streaming service from Google. The phone seems great, and the 799 deal actually looks pretty solid, as the phone finally seems like a great all around package which will entice not only avid gamers, but also regular phone enthusiasts as well.
