wait what? ASUS actually listened to me?!

After watching dave2D's video, I gotta say, many of my critizisms have been adressed as it seems.


heres the video.

So first off:

  • No bs 2nd screen on the back, thank god for that.
  • Clear back panel, being able to see inside the phone, super sexy indeed. I hope this will be an option on the retail products and not just an extra for the reviewers
  • It's NOT confirmed yet, but from what I can see through the phone it looks like it should be much more sturdy than the Rog5, so breaking it will likely be harder. If its anything like the Rog3 in terms of durability we got a winner
  • Camera not being shown aka being confidential indicates actual camera upgrade, which is a huge deal.
  • Speakers seem to have a significant upgrade, I'm not 100% positive yet, but when i compare how loud dave spoke and how loud the phone is in comparison we seem to have one loud phone here and the mids are significantly better as well it seems.

Overall I'm very excited for the Rog6, it isnt confirmed yet and sadly the reviewers getting this phone are mostly clueless so you'll have to wait for me to get ahold of one at some point. In Dave's video we got literally no information on how it performs. I know many are waiting for me to look at the phone before purchasing it since I was one of the very few that actually saw the issues with the Rog5 before it even released and warned people.

And no, I'm not getting one from ASUS, I am purchasing it like any other here on the forums, so it will take a while until I can even get ahold of one, so please be patient.

  • Wait now asus listened to you ok but after buy rog6 asus not listened our problem. Anyway rest in peace For your ROG 6

  • First of all fix their update issues rog2,rog3,Rog5 Performance issues,after then you promoting rog6 . Definitely the device after sale many issues upcoming.because before the Rog5 product many issues several people stay on service centre only.

    The most important improvement the ROG Phone needs is a SD card Slot.

    Not at all excited for me, a specialized gaming smartphone is worth absolutely nothing without blocking bug-free software and stability, given the past year and new bugs compared to minimal fixes or false claims like " performance optimization" or "stability" I no longer believe in Asus' ability to give satisfaction on the OS.


    Second important point, the complete disappearance of game accessories such as connecting screen keyboard mouse and remap the keys, in short what existed on previous games, to which we must add the inefficiency of the existing, in this period forced to go up the BS4 fan, so exit the triggers until this winter.


    Add the suggestion box that leads to nothing and total silence on a defect that affects everyone and you've done the trick.

  • I'm not promoting really, I'm just saying that there are very good signs that indicate that ASUS actually does give a sht this time around.

  • I know the Rog5 is in a terrible state, but as far as the Rog3 goes, it's very stable, no bugs no issues aside from the mishandled calibration on the Phone.

    The reason for that were poor sales and bitching from game companies talking about bad competitive advantages, which honestly are quite valid. I mean keyboard and mouse vs gyro or finger, it should be obvious who wins.

    While the Rog5 has been a clown fiesta and still is, the rog3 is very stable and overall the experience is very good, especially when using custom kernel it's an absolute joy which a ton of people can confirm.

    At least Dave 2d got it, he did a decent job of showing some basic stuff. and not some schmuck who ran a test opening and closing apps to test speed

    That's a prototype and I'm doubtful the final product will look anything like it.

    If the actual ROG Phone 6 is similar to it then it's very concerning to me since I can't seem to notice a 3.5mm headphone jack. Two features I'm really hoping for in an ROG Phone are a headphone jack and full network features such as VoLTE.

    In terms of features, I like how ASUS brought back the headphone jack in the ROG Phone 5 and how the Smartphone for Snapdragon Insiders featured Global 5G. I don't think it's too much to ask for a gaming phone that has headphone jack while also featuring all network bands and network functionality from the carriers in the region it's sold in.

  • I personally dont give a crap about 3.5mm port, I think dongle is just fine, especially if it means I get bigger speakers or better cooling. As for VoLTE, techncially the Rog phones support it, however ASUS's way of enabling it per carrier is quite questionable.

    That's actually ASUS specialty, salute tech support of ASUS

    It will be presented in 2 hours


    The fan should do its job this time, Peltier technology


    Improving, IPX4, Cooling


    The negative points are (personal opinion)


    Missing the SD slot for storing videos/photos


    Same 6000 battery and 65w load, I bet on the same 2 elements, it won't pass jerry's test, to forget for fans of jean pockets
