After updating to firmware 18.02010.2201.215 my ROG 2 heats up to 50 degrees during gaming. Before the update there was no such issue.


  • Hi Priotanmoy,

    Please mention the following:

    1. Ideal room temperature, before and after - Ideal conditions
    2. Games played
    3. Phones screenshot when it touches 50 degrees (Armory crate screen)
  • my phone gets shut down when it reaches 42-43° please give me a solution.

  • never gonna buy asus again in my life worst company 😝

    Only for phones. Even then - It's just poor software support. My ROG Phone 2 is just a glorified alarm clock now, since I switched to a S22 Ultra.

    Laptops, motherboards and GPU's are still great.

  • I just don’t get it. Almost 2.5 years with ROG 2 now and my phone still goes strong. Sure, battery life is slightly reduced but it is perfectly normal for a phone being used 2.5 years.

    I’m not a heavy gamer but still play game everyday 1.5 - 2 hours and use my phone 90hz all the time. Speakers and battery life are great (usually charging it every 2 days and get 6-7 hours SOT), and I’m in love with stock Android experience that Asus provide.

    Also didn’t expect to see Android 11 on this phone but here we are. And I’m sure if Asus gives us Android 12 this phone can handle it too.

    But I see many people have many problems with this phone. If Asus continues to make ROG phones with quality headphone jack, great front-facing speakers and huge battery my next phone also will be a ROG phone. I probably will skip ROG 6 and wait for 2023. And who knows, maybe I will skip ROG 7 too, if ROG 2 goes strong for another 2 years.
