ROG Phone 6 Audio Spec:

Speaker

Does this mean, ROG Phone 5 have superior audio quality and mic quality compare to ROG Phone 6?😅

Comments

  • No, it's basicially the same.

    1.) The speakers from Rog5 peak vs Rog3 were almost the same, the Rog5 was slightly louder, thats it, over the updates the Rog5 got worse for some reason. I assume Rog6 will be around Rog5 release/rog3 ballpark as usual.

    2.) They didnt bother adding the new dac again because they realized that the built in dac from Qualcomm is indistinguishable from the ESS Sabre Dac. Modern day dacs are so good that there is no need to upgrade them, it's just a waste of money.

    3.) quad micrphones were overkill. if you use 3 or 4 it shouldnt make a difference either, youd see a major difference from 1 -> 2, a notable difference from 2 -> 3 and 3 -> 4 is probably going to be the same. Also it depends on how the microphones are configured as well.


    Overall, there should be no notable differences at all.

    Version WW-32.2810.2206.95

    1. Updated Android security patch to 2022-06

    2. Optimize the Audio experience

    3. Fixed occasional charging abnormality problem

    4. Adjusted the cooling modes of AeroActive Cooler 6


    I do not really agree with Danishblunt, the Microphone next to the camera was useful in troubleshooting for small video, for audio and quality it will be necessary to wait a bit to compare because the Asus developer team must be the same as ROG 5,


    In summary, a first Firmware with rare Bugs

    A shift that destroys what was working "Audio" and even agraves 'for MAP' which blocks the phone every 10 min, which it had to correct

    Audio, regular clicking on the speakers

    Distorted sound, skipping sound, exploding Medium, unselectable headphone jack, and more that didn't exist in the original firmware.

    For Asus, fixing this is called "Optimize the Audio experience"

    I'm afraid for the charging system, it brings back painful memories

    A new update (.95) which "may be" corrects what the previous one destroyed, more than waiting for feedback


    In summary, for the software, no downgrade compared to Rog 5, still as bad🤣 the 30% increase was not used to create a quality control department

  • Can you elaborate on the troubleshooting part? I fail to see any real use for that.

    Troubleshooting French translated into English is not great, sorry, occasionally, rarely would be more appropriate

    My wife is a singer/musician in a band, I mainly use dedicated professional photo, audio and video equipment, but it happens (rare, 3 times in 12 months) at friends' or in a bar that she is asked to sing, it was not planned of course and I use the ROG 5 in this case, before with other smartphones, the audio was invaded by ambient noise, with the Rog 5 it is not great of course but the difference is that we keep the video as a souvenir instead of deleting it. There you go, I hope that's clearer.

  • I still don't quite understand what does that have to do with microphone quality. They removed the microphone at the camera, which makes a lot of sense. The Rog phones always had issues when it came to make video because when you only had a little wind it would ruin front audio. The side microphones are more protected. What you also disregard is how the microphones are positioned, I doubt youll see a decrease in audio quality. I wouldnt be surprised if most of the people would consider the rog6 an upgrade, rather than downgrade.

    I specify well "with friends or in a bar" I've never seen wind indoors lol, and in a bar where the other microphones pick up conversations from the sides and back, the microphone located next to the camera is more directive and picks up singer and music with less background noise.

    Afterwards, it remains very anecdotal and it is not a purchase criterion

    I just wrote a full review of the Rog 6 and it was deleted?

  • Because most of rog 5 users wont upgrade their phone after read your review 😂
