Asus should check how red magic keeping trolling us :D
Damnn that's a good troll tho ???
Lol that's really harsh ??
But redmagic 3s sucks at camera department ?♂️????
Even their inbuilt fan is just for show . I dosent properly cool . Many redmagic users complain that it produces more heat despite of inbuilt fan
Now that's funny though honestly I was torn between their 3s and this phone(rog phone 2) at one time. I hope I chose right seeing how many issues and bugs there is on this phone.
I'll just leave this right here.
Internal fans cant even beat ROG2 without fan.
As for bugs, every phone has bugs , unfortunately.. I honestly dont think ROG2 suffers from more of them than other phones - esp. not considering all the advanced features provided.
This review coincides with my experience. I play Asphalt 9 always in X-mode set to max and the AirCooller fan blowing max. My realtime monitor without the cooler attached shows constant 49 deg C, while the cooler attached and blowing max reduces the temperature to very pleasing 39 deg C. That's over the period of several hours. The review said lowest was 36. So comparable.
Playing several hours with X-mode turned off and without the cooler, temperature remains at acceptable 42 deg C and there is no drop of performance whatsoever.
Still the AirCooller is a game changer and an absolute must have for me.
Honestly I am aware that Rog 2 has best hardware but it struggles in pubG mobile like a normal phone .
NUBIA redmagic 3s may suck at camera department and other hardwares but I have seen its performance with my own eyes which my clg friend has it gives a perfect 60 fps even on hotdrops in pubG mobile . As for Rog 2 it struggles and laggs even on smooth and extreme graphics .
What's ur answer for this ??? As a gamer performance and game optimizations matter to me which rog 2 is lacking seriously.
in-game performance is different than what is on benchmark. :(
Fair enough but what about aftersales support? Updates? Transparency?
Rog 2 is already running it's 8th beta
And I believe there's more to come cos it's not fully stable yet
You seriously wouldn't want a unstable/buggy software right now after so long wouldn't you?
Just wait a bit more that's all I say, it'll be worth it :D
If Asus wanted they could've pushed the unstable software and called it a day but instead they're taking the longer route and I appreciate them for that
I know you wouldn't heard this enough this statement enough times but here's it again:
Rog 2 is an complex phone it's not your everyday flagship
The mainstream flagships out there don't offer half of the things it does
As for the Zenfones which are comparatively easier to update compared to Rog are on android 10 (Zenfone 6 on Feb patch and Zenfone 5z a 2018 device on Jan) that confirms Asus is working hard on their devices
Lastly Zen UI 6 based on android 10 is well optimised :)
I appreciate you trying to explain the situation as far as the whole A10 fiasco is concerned and I am very well aware of all points raised as I am not just your regular user. I am actually willing to wait for a month or two more for a stable and well put together release to be honest but you missed my point, it's not just this but the aftersales support and everything in between that ASUS has is terrible. The mods are doing a great job trying to pacify people and provide information but the issue stems from higher up the ladder. These guys can only do so much, also this is not the first product I bought from this company but this may very well be the last.
I appreciate your efforts in trying to explain the situation with this whole A10 fiasco but I am very well aware of all points you raised as I am not just your average user, however; you missed the point. To be honest I am willing to wait for a month or two more for a stable and well put together release. The problem is with ASUS' aftersales support and everything in between, the mods are doing a great job pacifying people and providing information to the full extent of their liberty to do so but these guys can only do so much. The real problem lies higher up the corporate ladder. This is coming from more than a decade of being an ASUS customer/consumer. This is not the first product I bought from this company but it may very well be the last.

The first ROG Phone finally got Android 9 in late November, 2019. I upgraded to the ROG Phone 2 expecting the same thing. Their update schedule is a joke but I don't care too much for newer Android versions since there are not major feature additions.
