                Have many razer devices at home all working like a brand new even after many many years.

                    Walter C. Dornez, 12 Oct 2018The ROG has more going for it though at a higher priceWell maybe but for many people Blackshark is nough or Blackshark 2 will be.

                          Well this phone is beast but i really dont think it would or will beat RAZER 2 phone.

                            Anonymous, 10 Oct 2018Very decently priced! And folks shouting..'I could buy a PC... moreMan we dont troll.
                            We are not Tim Crook and his mess.
                            We rather have a decent PC or a Bike or anything else appart device made by apple.
                            Anything and i repeat my self again ANYTHING is better than that overpriced bagel from apple.

                              sadh, 10 Oct 2018What? No! For 1100USD, you can buy the XS MAX! How better... moreRather would have that PC.
                              Apple is everything else but not a company where i can spend a dime.

                                Need !!

                                  I wonder which carriers will get it.

                                    Omega, 11 Oct 2018The Docks make up for that, well played on the pricing, lit... moreTo be honest, its overpriced. It doesn't seem that way but it really is. And the accessories are overpriced too. And that's a legitimate concern.

                                    The next concern is the cameras. Almost always dualcamera devices mean worse photography, as single-camera devices force the OEM to actually implement it well. But this fake-marketing has become a success as the dumb-masses bought into it, without checking the facts, and being rational/scientific on the matter. So let's hope the cameras are closer to the performance of the iPhone XS Max, and further from the performance of the Essential Phone.

                                    The other concern is the waterproofing. ASUS didn't pay to get it tested and qualify for IP68 (or greater) ingress protection rating. And they say it has some "water resistance" but that's very vague and can literally mean anything (ie splashproof/no protection). I'm not planning on gaming whilst scuba diving, but knowing the phone can safely handle a wet environment is something important.

                                    I sort of wished each unit came with the GameVice controllers in the box, because it makes non-sense to NOT include them. It's a "pro gamer" orientated device, and these details make or break it. Also that Desktop Dock/Cradle should also come included with each unit, it should double-up as a Fast Charger, an Alarm Clock, and a TV/PC unit. So if both of these items were included in the package, I actually wouldn't have much of a problem with the profit-margins (or value proposition) of the pricing. Remember, the prices are going to inflate much much higher for other countries/currencies!!
