Whooopdy dooo. It won't have VOLTE support in most countries... so sorry but thats pretty ugh for a 2021 phone. The same crappy ugh, just different CPU as always with the ROG lineup
1. Poor camera support and software (ROG1, 2 &3)
2. No waterproofing (ROG 1, 2 & 3)
3. Black crush screen issues, and or tint issues (ROG 1, 2 & 3)
4. No VOLTE except for a very small minority (ROG 1, 2 & 3)
5. Slow software updates and support (ROG 1, 2 & 3)
6. Lag in games - due to poor Asus-Android optimisation (as has been for all the ROG phones) (ROG 1, 2 & 3)
7. Accessories will take 12 months to be available and at an exuberant price.. (ROG 1, 2 & 3)
8. Not long after use, dust will appear inside the camera glass.... (ROG 1, 2 & 3)

Hopefully the new Xiaomi Blackshark isn't far away

YUKI93, 18 Feb 2021For Chinese people, 4 is a bad luck number.It's not only China. Japan n korea also think number 4 is badluck number, due to the pronunciation that similar to death. Or something like that

Nothing to celebrate about... Or did they forgot the whole ROG Japan/China debacle already?

Beside minor potential increase of sale, they will never get the same support as local vendor with the likes of Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo, etc... So Asus, why sell moral value for a fraction of 'potential' increase of sale?
