I ordered a ROG phone from Asus UK shop then cancelled when I realised it couldn't use MicroSD cards, it was difficult to confirm this info as in the index of the ROG Manual it has MicroSD page 10 then nothing on page 10! Also different reviews have conflicting info, basically I determined you can use a SD* with a dock or adapter. I have a 128GB MicroSD in my existing smartphone that is practically full so if I was going to get this phone is has the be the 512GB model! I think you'd have a far better user experience not having to worry about running out of space especially when filming 4k 60fps! Or stacking up games or ROMS for emulators! In addition the speed of the built in hard drive is way higher than a microsd so the larger drive is a must! The 1 year warranty isn't very reassuring! The 512GB model is harder to obtain in the UK, there are a few dodgy looking suppliers that are selling it but I doubt the warranty will be valid in the UK. What attracted me to the device is having a fast phone with a OK camera, the dual screen dock looks good for productivity, to significantly up the battery life and allow you to get some work done where two screens is a big plus. It would be nice to see a tablet adapter for the ROG phone to basically convert it into a tablet or laptop and that dock to up the batter life. I think that would be more useful than a dock that converts it into a desktop PC! If you are interested in this device you likely have a decent rig and have no need of the PC dock. You're better off using Bluestacks on your PC than buying that!

I will buy a "gaming" phone when they release a standardised physical button layout that are as good as a gaming portable device like a nintendo switch or better, until then its just a gimmic and I gladly purchase a switch instead and a cheaper phone or a premium phone with a nice camera instead until that happens. Also 120 hz is just like an Apple. Hope they release a 144 hz at least at CES this year with the aforementioned wishes. If so I am buying one. Right now I am using a Note 9 so perhaps this fall then if that is the case ^^(but, ofc they won't), sooner or later thought they will since the market is growing like crazy. I mean apparenly according to Blizzard we all have phones so

The real benefit with "Gaming Phones" is that the "Interfaces" in audio and video are giving a better recognition to the user. Even if it is just a video call, you have a cleaner video and , what is underestimated, the audio is better for having communications.

Let's be real, gaming phones are a farce. Any flagship phone (Note 9, iPhone Xs) is as powerful with better features, usability and built quality. Fine, if you play shooter games, you may have a slight advantage with the refresh rate.

Honestly this is a bad review and the title is more of a bait you said if they are worth it. Your answer should be no if you are gaming on phone iphone still outeprforms them and if you are gaming on android still a samsung galaxy or a pixel 3 still use the same gpus whats the point of buying on of them with those bezzels and bad build quality, when 5 manufacturers will suport them. Btw 120 drains your battery at twice the ration of 60hz therfore mafucaturers don't include 120hz screens. Finally if a manufacturer will release a game it will make it most propably make it run smooth on galaxies and iphones since they are the most popular phones, I can't imagine if a bug is found on a razer phone or an rog. GL making the company fix that )))

I just upgraded to the Samsung Note 9, an although it is at a slightly higher premium than the 3 gamer phones in this video, does everything I need it to exceptionally well, while also playing the occasional game a great experience due to the AMOLED screen. Sure, it doesn't have the 120hz screen, but I think gamer-centric phones are a bit of a gimmick anyway. Who takes gaming seriously enough that a very SLIGHT improvement on a gaming experience will have them playing their games on a phone rather than a PC or console? Most phone games are the "one/two level quick type games to burn your work lunch hour on or a bus commute. Most phone games, while getting better, still come nowhere close to gaming on a PC or console, an I don't see anyone using their phone exclusively for gaming. That being said, I do LOVE that Asus ROG phone, an to a little lesser extent, the Razer. The Asus just for the lightling an ROG "look at me" factor, an the Razer simply because of the design language. It's a sexy phone. Had I to choose, it WOULD be the Razer, simply because it has the ONE thing that flagship phones need an have been needing for a long time...STEREO FRONT-FIRING SPEAKERS!

THE LIE WE LIVE - only the display on Samsung is better. iPhones are better in almost every other respect(camera, OS, apps, etc). Plus they also get updates for like 5 years. Gaming is also better on iOS as opposed to android. Reason? Simple, because if there's a bug in a game, it's much easier to focus the bug fix to work on a single device as opposed to hundreds of manufacturers(android). Developers are also much more likely to get paid on iOS as opposed to android (piracy), so they focus on developing for iOS in that sense as well. Developers go above and beyond to make sure that the game runs flawlessly on iOS because odds are that if it doesn't, hundreds of millions of people are going to be complaining and leaving bad reviews.

THE LIE WE LIVE - if you think this phone is better than iPhone X in terms of performance, you're high out of your mind. You're talking about 2 completely different OS's. The applications are totally different for each OS. An App that would use 0.5GB RAM on iOS would use 4GB RAM on Android. I can pretty much guarantee that gaming experience is a LOT better on iOS. And no gaming phone is better than Galaxy S8 either. The ONLY thing that would be better would be the display refresh rate. Other than that, GS8 is better in every way.

How do they perform when playing multiple games at a time that have intense gfx? They exist because of games like pubg mobile, fortnite mobile, etc. But which one do you get if you are playing arcade, rpgs, moba, jrpgs, beat 'em ups, platformers, card style games all at the same time? Does an iPhone XS make more sense or can these out perform it?
