I am glad it failed. Asus thinks they are Sansung and Apple for charging 50000 for the basic version.

This phone has high quality DAC. have you ever used premium headphones with a high quality DAC for sound quality??

1300€ phone that will most likely only get 1 major OS update just like all the other ROG phones. Pathetic. I generally like ASUS for monitors, graphic cards and motherboards, but this is just absolutely terrible and until they improve this I'll never even consider their stuff. This one is great hardware wise and doesn't even look ridiculous, but with such bad software support it's dead on arrival imo.

Anders, 10 Mar 2021That pricing... Asus know no one buys their phones right..? 🤣🤣🤣You mean except for the 500k people who bought the last one. Why are you trying to act like you know what you're talking about when you clearly don't?

Inter... moreActually let’s be fair, years to come apps will likely require more RAM to run properly, but the next 3 years you might be already buying a new phone. You can’t upgrade the hardware. 18GB of RAM is still LPDDR5 and we might have LPDDR5X or even LPDDR6 later on. Storage may even be NVMe SSD like iPhones.

SERIOUSLY. If ASUS would have a 16 to 18 GIGS of ram. Internal storage should have been somewhere between 2TB to 6TB. What games require more than 8GB of ram to run in the first place?

I am planning to buy this mobile but after checking a few reviews on sound quality specially in in-ear sets. Hope our problem get solved. :D I can understand the role of specs and feeling of not to go ahead with new models with low specs/satisfaction. That Hurts..!! :D

Anonymous, 11 Mar 2021The jack is back!Yeah, let's buy a 1200eur Asus, because it has a headphone jack, lol. You can find plenty of those in 150-200eur phones. If you go a little up with the price, you can even find some nice quality sound from the headphone jack (example Pixel 4a).

  • AnonD-989007

And which games require 18Gb of ram, Candy Crush? Lol.
Mobile games will always be mobile games. Some of them are nice, I admit, but spending 1200eur for a gaming phone just to play Pubg or Call of Duty Mobile, well I don't get it.

Just take those 1200eur, spend it on some nice 4k TV + a PS5/Xbox Series X and you will be much more satisfied (if you really need to game that is). We are all sitting at home anyway, so no need for "mobility" anymore. And it will be the same in the future too. Because people now developed a taste of working from home.

Yeah, I know people will going to reply to me now, why do you care how people spend their money, bla bla bla. Well I don't, was just a friendly advice. And a good one if I might add. Lol.

[deleted post]Passive cooling is not going to make a huge difference in performance in phones. Remember this is not some PC with active cooling and huge heatsinks/heatpipes or fans that can directly cool the processor.
