ROG Phone 2 - My awesome buy of 2020

Sharing my thoughts here...

Upon the initial upgrade to Android 10, battery was slightly erratic, and Batt% dips intermittently but at times, it'll last longer.

However, after a couple of days of self-calibration/adjustment, I'm consistently hitting hitting 10-11+ hours of SOT. In fact, i think it can last even longer...

Point is, be patient and I know there'll be mishap felt and one will think of downgrading to Android 9 (guilty of it), but, don't, let it recalibrate itself. And it after a few days have passed if the result does not satisfy, it's your call.

Awesome phone!!!

PS: It's a Tencent Edition, I did a manual hard reset after upgrading to Android 10. Cheer!

I'm really keen on getting this phone, but reading this subreddit has raised a few questions. Can anyone help me out?

  1. Has anyone found a reputable UK seller that offers the WW version? I've seen a few people say Wonda Mobile but I don't see confirmation on their site that it's not the CN version.
  2. Has battery life really become a problem since Android 10 rolled out? It's obviously a really key feature for me, and I don't want to not be able to run the latest firmware because it kills the battery.
  3. Has anyone moved from a Pixel to the ROG 2? If so, what things are better, and what things do you miss about the Pixel?


  • 3. They have very slow software updates, and often the UI is laggy. Missing features like limited theming option. No Google dialer and call screening. But most of it is okay.

  • You'll enjoy the full screen display and the air triggers 😎. You can install GCam externally which improves low light image quality.
