ROG 3 suddenly broke down, blackscreen and intermittent power
Please tell us some basic information before asking for help:
- Model Name: Rog Phone 3 ZS661KS (16/512 Variant)
- Firmware Version: Latest
- Rooted or not: Not Rooted
My ROG 3 suddenly gone blackscreen and intermittent power for no reason, I was very careful as it is my first premium phone. (Premium on price, not on quality)
And then last week issue occurred, I brought it to service center for diagnosis, they said it was motherboard problem (ALL OF A SUDDEN), I read few discussions and posts that for past few months it was common among ROG 3 and ROG 5 units. BUT THE WORST THING IS MY WARRANTY EXPIRED AND THEY ARE ASKING FOR 50,000 PHP for the fix.
ROG 5s 16/512 is at 49k. The repair is more expensive than the phone itself.
I bought my phone sept 2020, part of the pre order group for limited 16/512 variant.
I'm not asking for support as I know there's no workaround unless I PAY THAT FREAKING 50K just for repair.
Just don't buy this phone, it will just break your heart, and your wallet definitely.
