Asus ROG Phone II Review

Score: 88 / 100

Asus ROG Phone II is a completely amazing phone released many years ago, which features a big size 6.6-inches screen, a very powerful 2960 MHz Octa-Core CPU, and 2 cameras, a 48 megapixels back-facing camera and a 24 megapixels front side camera. Great! That's it? No, it's just the beginning of this extreme review.

This phone is just available in color black glare. This phone construction uses Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 3) and Aluminum . This cellphone doesn't feel very lightweight comparing to other phones , weighting 8.47 ounces. This device is very slim and comfortable, with a thickness of just 0.37 inches. While this cellphone only has 6.73 inches long, it is still able to fit a a 6.6" display.

This device includes a high-tech 6.6-inches screen with a 1080 x 2340 resolution, which makes all images and videos look completely perfect.

Asus sells this cellphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus SM8150-AC chip, which holds a very powerful Octa-Core processor speeding at 2960 megahertz with a large 12 GB RAM memory. A key advantage of this device is its large 512 GB internal storage memory and although it doesn't come with an SD card slot, it it is more than enough to install hundreds of apps without worrying about how much storage capacity is left.

This phone has two cameras, a 48 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 24 MP front side camera. Its back facing camera has an aperture of F1.8 so it can shoot impressive pictures even in low-light environments. It is also able to film 3840x2160 4K videos at 60 frames per second, and HD 1280x720 slow motion videos up to 480 frames per second. In addition, the camera has time lapse video.

The Asus ROG Phone II includes wifi connectivity (which can be shared with other devices as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A (4G) high bandwidth connection and also HSPA+ data connection (a slower 4G type) and 3G fast connection type, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone has dual sim cards so it is able to work with 2 different phone lines or carriers in the same phone.

The Asus ROG Phone II also includes a wide range of interesting characteristics like Fingerprint Reader, Face ID, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth (allows communication with other devices, computers, and accessories), GPS Geolocation and Radio, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The Asus ROG Phone II packs a 6000 mAh great non-removable battery providing this cellphone an amazing battery life. An issue to take into consideration is that the Asus ROG Phone II's battery is not removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to have trouble holding its charge, though having 6000 mAh you will probably discard this phone before that becomes an issue.

If you will use it mainly for social networks, want a phone for work, are looking for a phone for playing games or love photography, this phone is the correct choice for you. The Asus ROG Phone II includes Type-C to C Cable (120cm), AeroActive Cooler II, Documentation (user guide, ASUS ZenEar Pro Hi-Res earphone with microphone (optional), Transparent case / Aero case, Ejector pin (SIM tray needle), USB power adapter (18W / 30W) and warranty card) .
