So its looks likes Nubia red magic Lenovo Legion and ROG 3 will be the top gaming phones.
Lets see what Xiaomi blackshark will bring on.
And lets see who will be the winner.
Despite all the mess fuss and add-ons to be Nubia still looks like the best phone only bcause of the lowest price among all others but comparable specs.

It works fine in Europe and rest of the world.

iOS Sucks, 09 Jul 2020It doesn't matter which version it is. Both are same ... moreYeah, all you're doing is more or less getting the worldwide UI, you're not getting the global LTE bands in which Chinese variants of phones tend to miss out. So you can flash the phone and get the global UI along with global updates but if the phone doesn't support (for example band 20) then you're not really getting anywhere. Remember mate that Mobile frequency bands are not a software-related thing it's more of a hardware thing

apprise, 09 Jul 2020Yeh the tencent version is the Chinese version buddyIt doesn't matter which version it is.
Both are same hardware wise.
One can easily flash global ROM over tencent ROM.

It was global variant.

Why should i buy a gaming phone having a small screen display... a lot of phone now better than this and lesser price

everywhere 8gb version was around $500 not just India, it was called Tencent version if am not mistaken, you could get it Aliexpress too.

Hemedans, 08 Jul 2020last year they did sell 8gb/128gb version for around $500Maybe if u live in India and converted the INR to dollars then yeh or if you have Chinese version but I 100% can say the Rog phone 2 global version did not cost $500 .. maybe you're getting the ZenFone 6 and Rog phone 2 mixed up

apprise, 08 Jul 2020Yet people on here will want this phone to cost around 600 USDlast year they did sell 8gb/128gb version for around $500

KondriX, 08 Jul 2020And what will be the real advantages of this Soc compared t... moresd 845 is powerfull but not in games, i do play emulators a lot, we have 3ds/citra, dolphin and ps2 emulator, all of them need lot of perfomance in gpu/cpu, so extra 10% in gpu and single core perfomance will help. remember this is gaming phone, its not intended for normal user to run simple apps.

Previous model has better design, imo.

Why keep updating your rog, want us to take a race with all of your products?

I would buy a "small" version of the ROG 3 in a heartbeat. Under 160mm tall. 6.0" 16:9 screen.

I would pay $1000.00 for this.

Cheap !

  • Moff Gideon

compared to 1&2 this version looks very inferior and as a gaming phone not so appealing . a big hands down

Why smartphone makers make stupid decisions...opting for 144hz display has no advantanges for gaming since sd865 processors are capable of rendering 60 to 80 fps in games...I don't know why they are called gaming phones...bcaz iphones simply thrash the competition with their A series chipset...they can easily render 120 fps games....next one ..I mean a14 chipset can render 140 fps games..they only are capable of advertising 144 hz displays
