Asus ROG Phone 8 is a breath-taking device released this year, equipped with a large 6.8 inches screen, and 2 cameras, a 50 mega-pixels back camera and a 32 mega-pixels front facing camera. But it's time to get into a bit more detail.

This cellphone counts with a 256 GB great internal memory and even though it doesn't include an external memory card slot, it is still enough to store lots of apps, games, photos and videos without having to worry about how much storage is left.

About its construction quality, this cellphone is majorly manufactured with Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass) and Aluminum. This cellphone is for sale in two color options, phantom black and rebel grey. While this cellphone only has 6.45 inches long, it's still able to fit a a 6.8 inches display. Being just 0.35" thick,the Asus ROG Phone 8 is extremely thin and comfortable. Asus appears to have forgotten about weight optimization in this 7.94 ounces cellphone.

Asus equipped this cellphone with an astonishing 6.8-inches display, and a 1080 x 2400 resolution, giving this device a great graphical experience.

This device counts with wifi connectivity (which can be shared with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), 5G , the fastest connectivity, 4G LTE-A super quick internet connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (a slower 4G type) and fast 3G internet connection, supported by HSDPA technologies. This cellphone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM networks.

The Asus ROG Phone 8 features two cameras, a 50 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 32 mega-pixels front facing camera. this phone's back-facing camera lens has an aperture of F1.9 so it can shoot awesome photos even in dark environments. This cellphone also captures videos in 7680x4320 at 24 fps, and slow motion videos in (Full HD) (1920x1080) up to 240 frames per second (8 times slower than normal videos).

This cellphone comes with a 5500 mAh long lasting non-replaceable battery that provides this device an incredible battery life. An issue to take into account is that the Asus ROG Phone 8's battery is non-replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins to live shorter, while with such a big battery you will probably replace this cellphone before it happens.

This phone also includes a great numbre of interesting features such as Fingerprint Identification, Wireless charging system, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth (5.3) and GPS Navigation, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.
