ChillyRideI barely even use the phone for its supposed intended purpose (gaming) because the battery drains SO FAST and it gets SO HOT. I've had it go up to 49ºC in some instances. I get that it's Summer and the 888 chip is a powerful thing but jesus.
Mine is fine too, still alive but I am not a heavy phone gamer. Overall 4 month no security patches, agreed with battery, 6000 mah and its still a joke. With current firmware this phone downgraded massively from the day I bought it. Worse sound from speakers, worse gaming performance (have to tune heavy games in order to bring back performance), current aerocooler is scum product, literally, kunai 3 for 200$+shipping? Insane price. No Volte support. First and last Asus phone. Funny thing I cant sell it cause everyone already knows that this phone "melting" with heat and have tons of mobo problems etc, all asking the same questions. Great job Asus.
