Asus ROG Phone 6 will be splash-resistant

25 June 2022
It's being advertised as the "world's 1st IPX4 gaming phone."

Sort by:

With the Asus ROG 6 release, I wonder if the phone will still easily snap in half. I'm looking to be a victim so I can get attention. Look at my overpriced, now broken, gaming phone! Lol.

    IP rating to Asus: "Am I a joke to you?"

      Asus should put more effort in to durability and reliability, because there current units are just poor and a waste of money. Buy another brand.. 🙄

          Which is why this year or next year. My primary focus would be either the Steam Deck or the Windows Portable gaming device such as ONEXPLAYER, GPD WIN MAX 2, or the AYA NEO .

            Fake-manufactured IP rating protection

              Even a phones woth no water resistance can survive few rain drops this is just money tossed out of window.
              Good waterproof case do the job much better and much cheaper way than even IP69K along with MIL-STD810 G or H

                    Anonymous, 26 Jun 2022"splash resistant" doesn't say much if you&#... moreBasically impossible to make it ip6 resistance as cooling systems on all gaming phones use a dual usb-c input as inlet/outlet for heat to escape and keep performance lvls sustained for long periods. Then there's the front facing dual speakers a 3.5 mml headphone jack to access studio quality quad DAC for MQA streaming ability which is 🔥 by the way vs Spotify lmao..
                    I'm quite happy with trade off for not 100% water proof but gain better performance lower chip temps dual usb-c input which is handy as they tend to lose ability to hold cable after 2yrs .

                      "splash resistant" doesn't say much if you're caught in a tropical monsoonal rainstorm. IP68 should be the "minimum" standard these days; not because you want to take it swimming but dropping it in water or accidental rainstorm will totally destroy the guts of the phone (I know, been there done that!).

                        I understand that nowadays marketing is everything, but are they fools? Their first ROG Phone was already water resistant IPX4...

                          After seeing that 512GB Internal storage space. The Hype went downhill.

Yes but no warranty" style... Nowdays waterproof and resistants are totally pointless because no one dare to give warranty for their waterproof certification

                                IP54 is easily achievable with rubber rings on every opening. Most phones have those, even cheaper ones, they just don't bother with spending money on official certificate.
