Asus ROG Phone 6 5G, Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro 5G review: the perfect smartphone for gamers

Asus has just come out with two crazy smartphones that are very focused on gaming. I’ve never seen anything like it before. Call my Asus ROG Phone 6 5G and Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro 5G, they are the best Android smartphones for gamers. Let’s take a closer look.

Now, for those who love an elegant and simple smartphone, this probably won’t be for you. In fact it is quite the opposite. Everything from the packaging to the phone itself drips above the best player quality.

First, unlocking the phone case is a complete experience. The box is somewhat hexagonal, with vibes, and once opened, with its hinged lid, you’ll reveal a special collector’s card, and the phone slides out of a cleverly designed compartment.

You’ve got Storm White color Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro 5G and the design of the device looks as if ASUS has crushed a gaming PC into the smartphone form factor. And, to be honest, with specs you’re so proud of, maybe somehow, they did just that.

XHEAD: Features and Game Specifications

ROG Phone 6 Pro 5G’s features read like a gaming PC spec sheet. It features a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 mobile processor with a clock speed of up to 3.2GHz. The phone also has a 50 percent faster GPU, 20 percent more power efficiency, and a 15 percent faster CPU compared to its predecessor ROG Phone 5 (with Snapdragon® 888). It even has 18GB of LPDDR5 RAM!

If all of this is going over your head, then this might not be the phone for you. However, what I can say is that this is probably one of the most powerful Android smartphones on the market.

The phone is largely designed to be suitable for those who love gaming, more specifically, mobile games. And with a large 6.78-inch AMOLED display encased in Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus™ and a 165Hz refresh rate, ROG 6 Pro delivers an ultra-responsive, best-in-class gaming experience with low latency.

Asus has not missed any details about this phone. Once you start it up, you’ll see the Republic Of Gamers (ROG) logo and the operating system graphically screams the word “gamer”. There are also technically built-in gaming sound effects that come along with a few button presses and a custom-built ‘Console’ app that shows you how your phone’s internal system works, with thermal temperature tracking, CPU and GPU tracking, and the ability to tweak system performance.

I didn’t mention yet that there is also a small screen on the back! That’s right, there is a small display on the back cover of the phone that can show your phone’s battery life or just play the rad animation. And it makes the phone look incredibly futuristic.

XHEAD: Cameras

It goes without saying that this phone performs very well on all fronts. It’s full strength and I’ve had my time using it for gaming and general use has been great. It also has dual front-facing stereo speakers that provide some of the best audio playback I’ve experienced on a phone, and this especially enhances your gaming or movie-watching experience.

Now, on paper, the cameras look pretty good. There is a Sony® IMX766 50 MP wide-angle main camera with HDR processing, a 13 MP ultrawide camera, and a macro camera. On the front there is a 12-megapixel selfie camera. In use, the quality has been fairly good in all respects, but I can’t say the cameras stack with any of the flagship iPhones or Samsung.

The rear cameras still deliver some impressive results, with well-balanced, true-to-life colors and better-than-expected low-light performance. And while the selfie camera didn’t explode out of the water, it also performed well in most lighting conditions. I wouldn’t buy this phone for its camera system, but if that’s a lesser-used feature for you, you’ll still get quality results.

XHEAD: Battery life

Asus definitely knew where to go when designing this phone because the battery life is no joke. The phone has a massive 6000mAh battery, for comparison, the average smartphone battery is around 3500mAh.

It also includes an insane 65W charger in the box that can charge the ROG Phone 6 Pro from 0 percent to 100 percent in 42 minutes. You can definitely tell that the phone has a large battery as it is heavier than most phones but I don’t find that to be a drawback, considering it’s a phone designed to support mobile gaming. And most mobile games, especially more complex games, are really good at draining phone battery life.

XHEAD: accessories and price

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more impressive, Asus also sells a cooling accessory called the Asus ROG AeroActive Cooler 6. This is pretty much a hybrid fan and controller attachment, containing 4 extra buttons. The idea is that you can use it to get an improved grip, and have four additional physical buttons (instead of just the touch screen), which will enhance your gameplay. It also looks really cool and even glows. The cooler is sold separately and costs $179, so you’re probably wondering how much the phones sell for.

The ROG Phone 6 5G will set you back $1,799, while the 6 Pro 5G will set you back $1,999. This is definitely the best if you’re looking for a new smartphone, but at the same time, it’s the mainstream for a high-end smartphone and that’s exactly what it is. I think Asus just hit its head here while trying to create the ultimate smartphone for gamers.

And if you value specs and performance, have a particular love for mobile gaming, want crazy battery life, a huge high-quality screen and an excellent speaker system, then this phone is perfect for you. With specs like these, the ROG 6 will definitely give you longevity, so you can rest assured that if you land it will be a good investment.
