Hello Asus team.

It would be great if you guys can put in a 2G only option for ROG 3 in the next update since in india most of the operators have stoped 3g and is now runing on 2G/4G modes.

So it would be great to bring in 2G only mode since 2g/3g mode is draining battery since phone continously searches for 3g network even when its on 2g network.

Also Vowifi is still not available fo Airtel in india.

Can u please consider this suggestion and includr 2g only mode and vowifi for airtel in next update?


  • Hi Aravind2020,

    Thank you for the feedback.

    I feel currently 2G and 3G are the most stable and when the phone supports 5G it doesn't make sense to have a 2G only mode as you have to manually change the 2G to 3G option. 3G is supported by Airtel, Vodafone, Idea and some small local telecos. 4G only is for JIO. 5G is coming soon though it make take its own good time.

    Also you can let me know the source of info from where you got the news that 3G is stopped.

    For Airtel VoWIFI we are already working on it.

  • For your kind info Airtel has ahut down 3G services and now is only a 2G/4G operator.. soon voda will follow suit... Thats y i told 2g/3g mode causes batery drain as my rog 3 keeps on searching for extinct 3g network of airtel.

    Please find the source ....3g was long gone for airtel
