Did you ever seen ZenUI 6?

The $510 Tencent version is very interesting for its performance/price ratio
But €800-€900 would be way too expensive, and this is the price without accessories, Black Shark 2 and Red Magic 3 have a way better performance/price ratio so Asus should sell the 510$ Tencent version globally to be competitive

Done this twice already, it doesn't cost much and battery life returns close to stock.
My friend's Asus zenfone 3 cost about $20 to get a new battery, my padfone e cost about $10, and my Huawei GR5 cost about $25 , prices could vary among countries, though.

Non-replaceable means the users not service centers.

GrandMaster, 28 Jul 2019The Red Magic 3 is the value champ when it comes to gaming ... moreYeah, those few perks justifies it being double the price. /s

Everyone does not want nor agree with forced apps (BLOATWARE) on their device. What you call essential, most of consumers call it useless spam.

My only complain about this phone is its weight, it really ruins the experience of using it as a phone, unless u want to use it as a gaming console, thats a different story.

GrandMaster, 28 Jul 2019Price doesn't matter when it comes to vote. People like you... moreYour claim that whitepaper specs on the ROG 2 are better is fanboy hype. Why? Where's the factual proof to the claim its 120hz is better than the 1+ Pro's display?

So, relax until "true" reviews are released, alright?

might be if the phone still new but in the long run battery life also get shortened especially if phones used for gaming coz you will charge it many times as possible even play with it while connected to charger. so I would prefer phones with removable battery to replace battery first because obviously I love my phone and hard to let go and buy a new, and also if they can create removable battery that will stay longer than 100+ would be perfect

Kiyasuriin, 28 Jul 2019All those people who signed "How about NO!" Why? what it la... moreCamera,price and design

For me it has two down side of this device.

Huge display and there is no 5G modem yet.

I am not into mobile gaming, I just looking for a decent device which has a cool design.
The last years model was good, and I had one for about 20 hours, but had to send it back as it was a faulty unit and they had no more in stock.

I currently looking for a more compact device, if it has a very unique feature or design I willing to give up one of my must have feature, but no more.
If this device would have 5G, I would preorder it. Otherwise I gonna stick my 2 year old device or even buying a low range device.
I don't like where these trend is heading, bigger and more fragile devices hitting the $1000 marks.

Probably the one feature I will going to drop is a flagship specs and go for a lower end device.

Removable battery is usless when the phone has 68h endurance rating compared to 100h + on the newer phones.
I guess you to need to learn about the technology development more! Have a great day

And when finaly we have 5k mah battery phones now you are complaing it is to much and to heavy.
You even hate fast charging witch eliminates the need of removable battery, 70% in 30 min is not enough?
Or better for you to have 3000 mah phone and a full pocket with bunch of batteries?
Just make your mind.
Removable battery was useful because of the low capacity back in the days, but you can get two days of usage with no problem.
And how much you're expecting to weight a phone with huge battery? 150gr?

ProJames-CHM, 28 Jul 2019So just becaus it's old necessarily means it's bad? Great f... moreDon't talk about the note 4. It's cheap quality, battery needed changing like 3 times in 3.5 years, exterior paint gone, can't even play GTA SA at max settings after sometime. Even the Z3+ which gets hot as an iron ran it so smoothly.

NotAnOpinion, 28 Jul 2019And for half the price you can have a Red Magic 3. 5000m... moreThe Red Magic 3 is the value champ when it comes to gaming phones. But when you compare the display, speakers, haptic feedback, and other small things such as fast charging, USB 3.1, etc... the ROG 2 is better. And you got the software part wrong. It has zero bloat. The only extra app is the gaming app which is crucial and not a bloat. Plus stock Android will be an option.

Great f... moreWell, sd 820 is very old, it won't have any software support, and LG has stopped selling it officially, I can use Any ROM that I want to, but that does not hold true for 99.9 percent people that buy phones. Also, you can not buy phones that are relatively new with a removable battery, so please keep holding on to phone with removable battery while world has those phones folded or on their wrists or in their ear....
