PinkFiresMeanwhile rog 3
I 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.
SOT when not gaming is like 5 hours with 14 hour standby. Sometimes I can get 1 day standby if my SOT is only 2 or 3 hours. Idk man, maybe I have too many things on (GPS, bluetooth, data + WiFi, 120hz) and it sucks the power right out but I kinda expected more from it.
At least mine hasn't just randomly died because the motherboard is crap though. 😂
DanishbluntYep I saw this post a while back. Made me wanna cry LOL it's so strange, it's almost like it's not the same company working on these devices. How do you go from that to whatever the hell happened with Rog 5.
Meanwhile rog 3
PinkFiresFrom what I heard ASUS reported a downturn in 2020 and fired some people, I wouldn't be surprised if some of these people were the designers of the Rog3. It feels so awkward seeing the rog nowadays, it seriously feels like a weird copy paste of the lenovo Duel 2 just without the fan that cools the internals down. Rog series had some cool accessories such as the twinview dock, which with 3ds/nds emulation is just absolutely a joy to play with. The Rog3 also had this amazing design where you could still tell it's a gaming phone but wouldn't be ashamed of using it as a daily driver, the cooling system also worked quite well as it isolated the SOC from the rest of the components somewhat and the list goes on. Rog 5 is a buggy unreliable mess that breaks like a kitkat, sadly the Rog6 is the same just with downgrades and a better chipset as its only upside, it should be clear that the passion is gone.

DanishbluntI wish i had come across the forum and your take on rog5 before i purchased it last year. Terrible experience so far and I've already shifted to iPad. I'm quite happy so far with the change and will probably stay away from Asus products (even computer accessories too) after the trauma.
As mentioned in my video on release the Rog5 was some rushed garbage they put out with tons of flaws. People still bought it like bread and now all are wondering about how the phones are dying left and right, not only that but has tons of software issues as well which are probably never going to be adressed.
Last update was on the 16.6.2022, which is 2.5 months ago.
Looking at how awful the Rog6 turned out to be, it's safe to say, that ASUS is probably phasing out their rog series in favor of their zenfone.
ASUS don't care about Rog series
ExodusCODMgenerally speaking I wouldnt go by brand. Sure ASUS has some really bad products but they also have amazing products, for instance their 280hz screens are without a shadow of a doubt one of the best you can buy, I got the 24" version and it easily beats my BenQ (2546k) in motion clearity and image quality. Also there is honestly no other 13" producity notebook like the X13 flow, and I really mean nothing even compares to it. Their ROG Hero motherboards are also absolute top tier.
