Just the facts..........ROG 2 vs........
I am a phone connoisseur and have had EVERY Nexus device, every Pixel device, and currently use the Pixel 4 XL as my daily driver. I also own the ROG 2 12gb/512gb International version, and the Oneplus 7T pro Mclaren 5g 12gb/256gb. Both the 7T pro Mclaren and the ROG2 have the 855+ CPU while the P4XL has only the 855. YET, the P4XL is a superior user experience because the ROG2 and OPO 7T are not refined enough software wise. Too many glitches daily with both.
Now you might say the P4 has glitches but mine does not. I dont like it as much as my previous P3XL because Google eliminated the fingerprint reader on the P4 and most developers HAVE NOT adopted the face unlock API......and may not ever. Yes, the ROG2 and OPO 7T pro beat my P4 in Antutu easily, but when I have to switch back and forth from airplane mode just to get the LTE signal working properly, then no, not a good experience even with their superior hardware. And yes, im in a strong signal area.
I am hoping Android 10 offers a better experience on my ROG2 when we get the update. We shall see.
