While the price tag is cheaper, don't use the Oneplus 7 Pro to compare when OVERALL, the ROG 2 phone is better. OnePlus only beats Asus in terms of software, its updates, and camera.

I think dis is amazing

5000mAh battery isn't something to look down at.

Less bloatware compared to Asus offering.

Arguably better in-house cooling.

That just for starts.

All those people who signed "How about NO!" Why? what it lacks for you?
it has the BEST processor around an android can get. MASSIVE storage, Headphone jack. Massive battery. HUGE display. Front facing speakers. UDFPS...
WHAT ELSE DO YOU MISS!?

no SD card. You'll have to use a computer every time you want to transfer data. Deal breaker for me.

My top 5 of most important aspects in a phone:

5. Display. I'm more into 2K plus but the 120Hz refresh rate definitely makes up for it.

4. Audio. Front-facing stereo speakers ain't dead and neither is that headphone jack. Perfect.

3. Storage. I hate not having a MicroSD card so I have to wait for te global unlocked price to see if the 512GB version is within my reach.

2. Processor and RAM combination. Obviously very good.

1. Battery. That battery is gorgeous. I don't care about weight. Lift weights if it's too heavy. I'll take more components and bigger battery over thinner phone any day of the week. No compromises.

Dang straight, this phone is hot. I hope it will have global bands.

I hope that those whom voted that its hot also means that they are cool with the MSRP price.

If you don't agree with the price, no sd card, no IP68, One Plus display is much better, etc. you just endorsed future gaming phones from Asus to take advantage of consumers.

The processor isn't everything. You can play all the lame mobile games you want on a V20 or a Note4. Plus IP protection plus MIL-STD-810G drop protection plus quality materials plus much more convenient and I could go on.

You are definitely the target audience for gaming phones: those easily manipulated by marketing terms that don't know enough about technology to realize everything you need from a phone can be acheived better by an older, more durable and convenient device

Not hot, but certainly interesting.
I am really looking forward to detailed review for dock vs. DeX, camera, video recording, audio recording etc.

Again, gaming phone in pool? Are you gonna play Pokemon go underwater to catch magicarp? The target audience won't really care if it's water proof or not. You certainly are not the part of target audience( along with almost any phone in past 2 years or so). One plus still is not ip certified, no matter what marketing says. Any phone can survive a dunk or two, as long as you put it in rice afterwards

A phone must be consider Hot...If the camera of the those smart phones are good specially in low light condition at high ISO..if not, then throw those phones into trash can..because hi fi processor, big ram, high graphics are useless until the performance camera of those smart phones are good specially lowlight condition...
