Asus ROG Phone 3 Review

Score: 10.25/10

Asus ROG Phone 3 is a top-level cellphone launched almost a year ago, which counts with a high speed Octa-Core CPU clocking at 3090 megahertz, a 6.6 inches screen, a 64 MP back facing camera and a 24 megapixels front side camera. Let's take a deeper look at what this device can do.

Asus ships this phone with a great 3.09 GHz Octa-Core processor, bundled in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SM8250 system chip with a big 12 GB of RAM memory. A great point of this phone is its large 128 GB internal memory and although it doesn't have an SD memory slot, it it is more than enough to store hundreds of apps and even the largest games currently available without worrying about running out of space at all.

This phone body design combines Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 3) and Aluminum . Asus appears to have forgotten about weight optimization in this 8.47 ounces phone. This cellphone is a compact phone, considering it has a 6.6 inches screen and it only has 6.73" long and 3.07" wide. This cellphone has an inspired design, with a thickness of just 0.39 inches. This cellphone is available only in black glare color.

This device is equipped with a gorgeous 1080 x 2340 6.6 inches display, which makes everything look perfect.

This cellphone provides wifi capability (and it can be provided to other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), 5G crazy fast internet connection, 4G (LTE-A) , a really fast connection type and also HSPA+ data connection (which is a bit slower 4G variation) and 3G fast internet connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This device has 2 Nano SIM cards to be able to to work with two different phone numbers or carriers in the same cellphone.

The Asus ROG Phone 3 features two cameras, a 64 MP back-facing camera and a 24 MP front-facing camera. Its back-facing camera has an aperture of F1.8 so it can take excellent photos even in low lighting conditions. It is capable of filming videos in 7680x4320 at 30 frames per second, and slow-motion videos up to 1280x720 (HD) at 480 frames per second (16 times slower than regular videos). In addition, this cellphone's camera also has time lapse video.

The Asus ROG Phone 3 also includes a wide variety of cool characteristics such as Fingerprint unlock, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your phone close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth (for communication with other cellphones and accessories) and GPS Geolocation, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This cellphone uses a 6000 mAh long lasting non-replaceable battery providing the Asus ROG Phone 3 an amazing battery duration. An issue to evaluate is that this cellphone's battery is non-removable so you can't change it when it starts to get older, although having 6000 mAh you will probably replace this phone before it becomes a real problem.

It doesn't matter whether you need a work cellphone, want a phone to majorly use social networks, are a photography fan or want this cellphone to play games, this cellphone is a very good choice .
