ASUS, shame on you and your shameless practices
I literally cannot believe how shameless ASUS is. Is this a joke? You're literally releasing another special edition despite having issues such as camera circuit breaking, dead power IC, fragile phone, and tons of software issues and to top it all off, release this expensive special edition after qualcomm has released their newest SOC which is a huge step up from last gen?
According to qualcomm you knew all about this:
This new mobile platform will be adopted by global OEMs and brands including ASUS Republic of Gamers, HONOR, iQOO, Motorola, nubia, OnePlus, OPPO, REDMAGIC, Redmi, SHARP, Sony Corporation, vivo, Xiaomi, XINGJI/MEIZU, and ZTE, with the first commercial devices expected by the end of 2022.
Are you serious?! You are fully aware of the release date and information on the gen2, yet you still do your moneygrab and make an edition based on the gen1 chip. Thats absolutely disgusting and honestly at this point I'm convinced the company don't give a damn anymore, it's so blatant what the intention is.
So now people will have to spend tons of money so they can get outperformed by consumer grade phones after around 2 months? I am beyond dissapointed, the once proud people who worked on the Rog3 probably got fired or are strangled by the business unit and now this dumpsterfire is the new standard, honestly you lost all credability and I have no hope for the future of the Rog phone brand. It seems we gamers will have to switch to another brand that at least gives a fk, this is beyond embaressing and I cannot find words for this shameless moneygrab, I honestly hope that sony will step up to the plate. There are very promising leaks regarding the V, so I'll be on the lookout for that. I think most people here have lost all interest and are tired of ASUS's BS, maybe it's time for the Rog phone to die.
Back when the Rog3 was released, we had gamer scentric features, experimental gear such as twinview and docking station, rock solid device, we had actual innovation, passion and cool features, today we got lazy fragile garbage being marketed as premium, it's a shame, it really is. When I saw the Rog5 I had hoped it was an honest mistake, but it seems this confirms it, there is no mistake, this is pure lazyness and business trying to make anti consumer decisions to make the most money.
@FunBike31 tagging you as well since you will eventually come across this abomination as well.
