Score: 10.38/10

Asus ROG Phone 3 Strix Edition is a breath-taking cellphone launched in July, including a 6.6 inches screen, an extremely powerful Octa-Core processing unit speeding at 3090 MHz, a 64 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 24 megapixels front facing camera.

Asus decided to build the Asus ROG Phone 3 Strix Edition using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SM8250 chip, holding a very fast Octa-Core CPU ticking at 3.09 gigahertz with a large 8 GB RAM. A great point of the Asus ROG Phone 3 Strix Edition is its 256 GB astonishing internal storage and whereas it doesn't count with an external SD slot, it is still enough to store hundreds of apps without thinking about filling it.

About its design materials, this phone is built with Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 3) and Aluminum . The Asus ROG Phone 3 Strix Edition is only 6.73 inches long and 3.07 inches wide, but it still manages to hold a 6.6 inches screen. This cellphone is slim and good-looking, with a thickness of just 0.39 inches. This phone is a bit heavy comparing to other phones , with a weight of 8.47 oz. Asus made this cellphoneavailable just in color black glare.

The Asus ROG Phone 3 Strix Edition has a completely amazing 1080 x 2340 6.6" screen, which makes everything look absolutely great.

The Asus ROG Phone 3 Strix Edition has two cameras, a 64 megapixels back side camera and a 24 mega-pixels front camera. Its back side camera lens has a maximum 1.8 aperture so it can shoot awesome photographs even in dark conditions. This cellphone also captures 7680x4320 videos at 30 fps, and HD 1280x720 slow motion videos at 480 frames per second. The camera also includes time lapse video.

The Asus ROG Phone 3 Strix Edition features wifi capability (which it can share with other devices around, acting as a modem or router), 5G insanely fast internet connection, LTE-A (4G) , a really fast internet connection and also HSPA+ connection type (which is a bit slower 4G type) and the fastest 3G connection type, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Asus ROG Phone 3 Strix Edition comes with 2 Nano SIM cards to be able to to work with two different phone numbers and even different carriers.

This device packs a big capacity 6000 mAh non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this cellphone with a great battery life. An issue to consider is that this phone's battery is not replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to lose capacity, even though with its 6000 mAh you will probably buy a new phone before that happens.

This cellphone also features a wide range of interesting characteristics such as Biometric fingerprint, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your cellphone close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth (5.1 ) and GPS Localization, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.
