This phone was bought as a gift on birthday... Thank you Asus for ruining the moment!
Yesterday I got this and today it's the second day and already all the issues started
1. the display is showing 2 lines on it
2. the phone gets hanged
3. sometime multiple applications starts at at a time automatically and even by pressing home button does not work.
It feels like an untested phone was shipped !

satorhelyi, 04 Aug 2019Rog Phone 2 realese date: 2019 Christmas. ( in Europe) or 2020 .... moreFrom what I've read the ROG Phone 2 is coming in early September and GSMarena even has the status "expected release August@ so it should be just around the corner...

I'm just not sure if it is worth buying over the Zenfone 6... ROG Phone 2 is expected to cost around 900 dollars compared to the 500 dollars that Zenfone 6 is priced at! Also I am not a person who likes to swap out phone every other year so I want a phone for several years which is why I'm worried about screen burn-in which at the same time makes me question if getting a AMOLED phone is stupid and if it would be smarter to choose the Zenfone 6. But with all the call issues and heating issues I read about it here I'm hesitant to go for it as well...

Is this only the case when you use the phone to record video in 4k 60 fps that it reaches these kind of temperatures? For example if you just use it for normal video calls does that pressure the phone in the same way so that it gets really hot in a few minutes? What about when you play the most demanding games available... Does that pressure the phone as much or are the temperature levels fine when gaming?

You are saying that it also reaches these temperatures by just using the camera app and taking photos for 20 minutes and it even shuts down and turns off if you try recording video for too long?

I'm struggling to decide if this heating issue is a big enough problem for me and if I am better off going for Asus ROG Phone 2 which I would assume has solid cooling since it is intended for gaming and has special design with this in mind... The price difference will probably be pretty big however and I'm also worried about AMOLED display and burn-ins which is why I was thinking to buy the Zenfone 6 since it has LCD!

Anyone here with some advice on whether to go for this Zenfone 6 or wait for the upcoming ROG Phone 2?

The phone gets hot as the two motherboards fit together without a heat sink - this is clearly revealed and highlighted in Jerry's put-out video.

Call quality issues REMAIN, unfortunately.
Phone gets hot because of the way the 2 motherboards are sandwiched together without a heat sink provision - this is clearly revealed and highlighted in Jerry's teardown video.

Any news about availability for the USA? I'd love it if there was a new model, but I doubt Asus will do one.

Had this phone for about a month and a bit. really good phone havent had any problems would reccomend it to anyone.

Chose this over the oneplus 7 & the redmi k20 pro because the video recording on the zenfone is so good; it doesnt have OIS but holy crap the EIS is so damn good.

Only thingh i noticed recently is when polaying graphic heavy games the phone screen gets really hot. puts me off a bit sometimes but hey

Can we hide the upper portion of screen like we hide notches,cuz bottom bezel is big and the screen is uneven when playing pubg.
