Weekly poll: Asus ROG Phone II - hot or not?

28 July 2019
A phone with plenty of specs to impress, including the first device with Snapdragon 855+.

Sort by:

It is useless for gaming cause any phone with 855 will do same job, but hood as a flagship phone without good camera

I was blown away the first time I try 120hz monitor. Now we have a phone capable of doing that?! But can the phone even run AAA games in 120hz? I have SD845 6gb phone that still cant run well HDR+Ultra PUGB, SD855 is like a minor upgrade to 845.

Well there are better gamiing flagships or at least a lot cheaper but with simmilar specs.

geekacontra, 29 Jul 2019"Asus ROG Phone II - hot or not?" for me a definitely NO! well..... moreHaha I agree with you, but every time I go to cafe or wifi corner I always see bunch of guys hang out together playing pubg. Their screaming, laughs, swears, they look like really having fun compared to be alone in our room playing on PC sure we can have voice chat but still feels alone.

120 Hz is the thing that attracts me the most about this, easily the most interesting spec. Nice hardware overall.

I've said the OP 7 Pro has a better display when it comes to HDR content and color. But for smoothness, ROG 2 is better. Read properly next time please.

"Asus ROG Phone II - hot or not?" for me a definitely NO! well... actually is a matter of habits and preferences... I do prefer to play my games on a 1000eur, i7 gen.9, 32 g ram, 6g video rig + a 500eur 27"monitor + stereo sound system, sitting in a comfy ergonomic chair vs playin' on a cramped 6"display squatting on the street curb or huddled in a chair in a bus or metro.... :)))

In just a simple nutshell and OVERALL, YES it is definitely HOT!

For most people who are looking for a finished product, RedMagic 3 just does not cut it. ROG Phone 2 is super prepared out of the box.
