  • Yes it's "good"

    But there are better options out there depending what you want to do with a high end phone

  • It's bad purchase, as per my experience with this device.

    Don't buy this device.

    I am facing widevine issue, color banding issue.

  • BPMBPM Level 2

    To me, it's a great phone. The only real issue with it is the screen calibration (upon which there are COUNTLESS threads about here). Other than that, performance, battery life, etc. have been great. It's certainly a lot better than the ROG Phone 5 from what I've seen.

    Can't say how it compares to phones from other manufacturers, though. Haven't done enough research on them, and don't really care to.

  • This phone has only two glaring issues which may help in your buying decision.

    1. Display issues, banding/black crush whatever it is called.(remedied to a small extent by using overlay software etc)

    2. No IP rating.

    An additional issue will be the device is more than a year old now so will see less frequent software support.

    If you can live with these go ahead and buy.

    You will see other complaints in the forum but those will always be there for specific devices but it is worth going through once.

  • The phone has 1 major flaw, that's it. And that flaw is a dealbreaker for many. If possible go and check out a Rog3 nearby in a store or similair and see if you are bothered by the dispaly or not, sadly the Rog3 has a miscalibrated display that causes massive color banding. If you're fine with the display of the phone being mishandled then it's the perfect phone.
