The Asus ROG Phone is a gaming phone with a 6-inch AMOLED display, Snapdragon 845, 8GB RAM, a vapor chamber cooling system, and an external AeroActive Cooler, among other top specs and features.
The Asus ROG smartphone is being marketed as a gaming phone, and it has all the trappings. In addition to the raw power it possesses and the cooling system, it also has 3 ultrasonic pressure sensitive areas. One is on the side and activates the “X MODE”, which optimizes the phone’s performance for gaming, activates the AeroActive cooling accessory (if plugged in), and changes the theme to red.
The other two pressure sensitive areas, called AirTrigger, are located at the two corners in landscape mode. They serve as virtual buttons in games, though they can be mapped to other supported functions.
It is the season of gaming phones and the Asus ROG phone is as good as they come. It features a 4,000mAh battery, dual rear cameras, and dual nano SIM slots. The device features two USB Type-C ports (one on the bottom and one on the side for charging while you play), a 3.5mm headphone jack. Yes; gamers love their wired headsets
