I had to pick the most exciting gaming phones out there it has to be the ROG phone series well the brand new Asus ROG Phone 3 is here and like the previous 2 ROG phones it packs in some fantastic gaming features its power pack and well there’s a lot to talk about so let’s get started.
First up in typical first impressions custom in the Box so you get the cool case and the 30 Watt Hypercharge or adapter the USB c2c cables are 3.5 mm the USBC dongle and obviously the new ROG phone 3
Now, design-wise let me be frank the Asus ROG phone 3 is very similar to the ROG phone 2 if you just look at it I mean it’s still a big and hefty phone at 240 grams and that’s justified because this way it’s still compatible with all the accessories from last year and this way it still packs in all of the crazy ROG phone tech having said that it does have some functional changes first as you can see the RG phone 3 has slightly different patterns on the back but it still has the gaming phone why with the ROG logo that lights up so it’s all cool you still get the 2 USB-C ports 1 on the side and 1 on the bottom but this time there’s no Headphone jack anywhere on the Right you have triggers and these are air triggers 3 and they are much better to see in the ROG phone 1 and 2 these Ultrasonic buttons worked as two usual shoulder buttons with tap and slide functions but in ROG phone 3 it’s way more functional. moving to the front it’s similar to with the Dual front-firing speakers which by the way are even better now because this time there’s a 7 magnet steel speaker and the speakers have more depth more bass the audio experience is just super impressive there’s also a new audio wizard feature with different profiles tune by direction.
The big change on the front is the Display this is a 6.5 inch F HD Plus AMOLED panel with HDR 10 plus support Gorilla Glass 6 but the highlight is the fact that this is an insanely fast 144 Herz display with 2 and 70 Hertz touch sampling rate and everything else has been improved to be the touch latency or the slight latency the UI here is just crazy smooth I mean I’m sure Asus has optimized the UI for the 144 Hertz a refresh rate because the phone seems crazy responsive and every animation is just buttery smooth and you can feel it now to be honest 144 Hertz is probably overkill because popular games like PUBG Mobile Asphalt or COD Mobile don’t support it but interestingly Ezel sent us a list of more than 100 games that support the 144 Hertz refresh rate it including some popular games like Altos adventure beach buggy racing modern combat shadows and legends dead trigger 2 and more either ways like I said I’m sure popular games aren’t supported yet so in that case there is an option to conserve battery life by setting the refresh rate to auto 60 90 or even 120 as for the quality of the AMOLED panel it does seem great with very accurate color rendering and it’s very bright.
Apart from that you still get all the Tech here like the 4 Wi-Fi antenna, 4 Microphones with noise cancellation the GameCool 3 heat Dissipation system which is said to have a 6 times larger heat saying redesigned copper 3d vapor chamber and a large a graphite film and yes it also has this notification LED which is very rare these days.
Moving on to the under the hood Hardware the Asus ROG phone 3 is quite possibly the most powerful Android flagship right now just look at the specs so it’s got the updated Snapdragon 865 plus (5G 3.1 GHz) chipset Adreno 650 GPU up to 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256 GB of UFS 3.1 (8/128 GB, 12/256 GB) storage all top-of-the-line specs as a PUBG Mobile graphics options the 865 plus supports a maximum setting of HDR graphics and extreme frame rates and add this setting to the game runs smooth and nice as for the software onboard the phone has Android 10 here and other than the optional ROG Team the UI and apps are mostly from stock Android and I love the fact that there’s absolutely no bloatware whatsoever Asus does add handy features like auto dark mode support different tools like Twin apps, a one-hand mode, a screen recorder and more but that’s pretty much it
plus there’s the Amazing Armory create an app where you can see the GPU and CPU speed the temperature of the device and more while export the performance-boosting mode is turned off and also customize different things including the Air triggers, Game genie the order lighting on the back of the phone and more
Movie Monitoring comes to the Battery the Asus ROG phone 3 keeps the massive 6000 mAh battery which is awesome and the good news is that the phone will come with the 30 what hyper charger in the box with every single variant ROG phone 3 also exciting are the Advanced battery customization features in the software there are different battery modes here and you can create a custom battery-saving profile there are also new battery saving options where you can stop unnecessary apps mean have from auto-starting and hibernate apps there’s also Battery care you can turn on slow charging or schedule charging at nights so the battery span is longer these are pretty interesting features.
Next up the cameras now I know the cameras are never the highlight in ROG phones because these are proper gaming phones but the Asus ROG phone 3 brings an upgraded camera setup that sounds pretty capable well it’s a triple camera setup including the 64-megapixel Sony imx686 sensor 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens and a 5-megapixel macro lens the cameras here are also pretty exciting on the video front because the ROG phone 3 has support for 8k video recording, yes 8k support is here and there’s a pro video mode as well
coming to the Pricing now the ROG Phone 2 last year launched at a crazy good price but with the GST increase the cost of the 865 plus with 5g I’m not expecting the ROG phone 3 to be priced as low as the ROG phone 2 in fact if you ask me I think it should be somewhere around 45 to 50,000 rupees considering all of the top-of-the-line specs and features the phone comes in and even though it’s too early to judge at that price – what do you think of the new Asus ROG phone 3 tell us in the comments down below if you enjoyed it and make sure to share it with your friends Thank You!!!
