  • Noone's gonna read this but I want to get it off my chest. iPhone: Good design, fast device, non customizable, locked operating system. Expensive. Samsung: Above average, every year changing design, highly customizable, open source operating system. Expensive-ish, depending on the model. Asus ROG5: Stupid design, fastest android device, extremely customizable operating system and built-in softwares. Not that expensive in the price performance sense. Why can't I just get a device that does whatever it is I want it to do? Why do I have to pay a ton of money to Samsung for everyday use fast phone? Why still can't I get a proper file manager system on iPhones? Why Samsung put Exynos CPU's on some devices, and Snapdragon on other devices? Why why why why......

  • The sensible thing to do is the buy the base model and use the extra cash to get a Playstation 5.

  • He forgot that it also has motion sensors like the wii which adds more control settings and records video in 8k at 30fps or 4k at 120 fps and in one add I've seen it can sink to a smart TV and play dts 5.1 surround but most adds dont mention that so ehh maybe.

  • There is always a DAC behind the headphone jack... Digital to Analog Converter.. it is required to take sound from 1s and 0s to an electrical audio wave. What he means is they have an extremely high end DAC of which make us audio engineers blush.

  • I purchased the ROG Phone II, and was very disappointed. While these phones are beastly in spec, all the power means nothing, when they can't perform in real world situations. For instance, Android devices still can't pair successfully to Honda's hands free link. After over a decade of this issue, one would think someone could fix that issue. Also I use hearing aids, and these phones just don't connect to the aids in any helpful way. Until these issues get sorted, if they ever do, they are just not worth the price.

  • Coolest looking phone ever. The top real estate for a camera and calls wouldn't bother me just because I use a wireless controller. I absolutely love the esthetics though. Especially the second screen on the back. Gaming phones should be ridiculous.

    • Yeah about that....ASUS got the worst quality control of any phone company at this price range. Is their quality control gonna be different for this one? I don't know there are no reports yet but based on their previous ROG phone 3 complaints (black crush on screen because of the inferior OLED panel and that panel dying out too quickly in 1-2years and some serious problems with their software) and based on my experience with them as a customer (bought a laptop that cost me a fortune and instead realized while the hardware is awesome it has some serious catches, worst support ever they barely respond and even if they respond they are useless and their service centers are no exception even tho they are "authorized" they are just cheap contracted ones, you can keep coming back with the thing again and again and they'll never fix it, god its like they never made the thing in first place!) and of course the terrible quality control. I wish it was just my luck but you can just google about it and see many horror stories about their quality control and service centers. Every company has quality control problems but what matters is that its not serious and you have great support to assist the customer who had a bad apple. ASUS has nothing for that, they only dodge your issues.
