I just wanted to remind you guys that you should wait before purchasing the phone. So far there have been some changes that I really liked to see, however there were no changes in some regards that make me wonder if this is going to be another Rog 5 fiasco.
disclaimer I don't own the Rog6 yet.
Some thoughts beforehand:
Display: The amoled display seems awfully similair to the Rog5, only even more overclocked. Which means, more powerdraw. Pixelworks as usual in for the ride, meaning the delta < 1 is probably wrong again, however it seems they did not put in the dumbass motion chip which is already a huge stepup from the Rog 5. I don't think there will be any severe color banding issues this time around, however youll probably have the usual crushed blacks and blue / yellow tint. Albeit not very strong, very normal for a flagship with OLED.
Cooling: The cooling has no real huge benefit over the Rog5, while its larger and theoreticly better, it's passive cooling capabilities are going to be rather poor. Having the huge cooler on the back is a must, which is to me at least, quite annoying. Sad that they still didnt go the lenovo / Nubia route.
Performance: Yeah, performance is going to be very dependant on the cooler, once its used, the performance will most likely be great, without it, its going to be quite disastrous. I cant comment to much yet however, due to not enough data on this topic. The only thing I do know for a fact, it is going to perform rather poorly without the cooler.
Features: The Rog5 had some really bs features nobody wanted that would put the price higher for no reason. lucky for us they didnt bother with the essabre dac and seemingly got away with the dumb motionchip. However the useless 2nd screen is still there. The capacitive shoulderbuttons are still capacitive, so not physical buttons like on the black shark.
Dissapointments from my side:
They didnt get rid of the dumb display on the back which would drain battery for no reason.
Still capacitive instead of physical buttons
Speakers seem the same, despite normal phones being quite close to the speaker of the Rog5.
Durability concerns are still there due to their absolutely dumb decision to center the PCB and have batteries left and right.
Fingerprint seems quite bad once again. Really would have liked on the powerbutton or on the back.
Due to how similair the Phone is to the previous gen, also the power IC dying concern is also there.
Battery life is quite piss poor. You can empty the battery on games like genshin within 2 hours.
While the cooler provided with the phone is undoubtibly powerful and does what it should do, its very clunky and I would have liked something like a built in fan way more than having that chunk on my phone.
It seems at the very least the provided cooler is powerful enough to cool down the phone.
They got rid of SOME of the nonsense
software packages have evolved, always a nice plus.
Overall, While I do see improvements in some ways, I still see some very obvious flaws as well. While these are mostly theories based on what I can see with limited ressources, only time will tell. I sincerely hope and think that the rog6 might actually be what the rog5 should have been, that being said, we never know.
I would generally not recommend anyone buying a Rog6 just yet, if youre in a region where you cannot get the active cooler, defnitely 100% do not buy, it will NOT be a good experience.

FunBike3150c is not good, its quite bad. Also while it takes a while to heat up due to sheer mass, it also takes longer to cool down. It's very bad for batterylife. Because everything on the back is also transfering heat you're exposing the battery to much more heat than the Rog3 for instance which only had a heatsink on the back. Also the Rog5 and Rog6 have similair times to reach high temps, no clue where you get the takes 2x longer to get high heat idea from.
--- No LPTO shame,
+ added 90hz
++Brightness. up to 1200 nits in sunlight
-Delta, same as rog5, 2.3 at best at >3 depending on the mode. No effective color correction (only 1 general slider)
looks good, 20 min benchmark to reach 50°, it's 2 times better than Rog5 without fan.
With Aerocooler 6, 45° without drop in perf, efficiency 95%
Aerocooler 6, ouch, 89€, given the efficiency it's still a better quality/price ratio than the 5
For my part, I prefer a smartphone without a mechanical element inside, so I prefer the principle of the external cooler.
Same capacity, same charger but gain of +10Min from 0% to 100%, there may have been improvements on the internal components.
-- More Microphone for video
+LDAC instead of DTS
++AptX Lossless and AptX Adaptive and Bluetooth Low Latency
+Overall volume and bass seem to be up
? The change in the Audio Chipset leads me to believe that the Rog6 will not make friends who have a recording studio exclaim as was the case with the Rog5
Of course it is rare to have a Focal Utopia or an Audeze LCD-4 at home and it is likely that no one will notice.
Only the main sensor changes for a Sony IMX766, it's better but without stabilization the upgrade is almost useless.
12MP Sony IMX663 front camera
Still no SdCard, damn bad, to please morons who criticize the slowness of the SDCard, you'd really have to be stupid to save apps or game data on it on a dedicated gaming phone
Impossible to know if it presents!!
Only fools don't change their minds, so I was wondering about buying the Rog6, if the LED disappeared, thank you ASUS, you saved me a lot of money.
130€ more than the Rog5, obligatory cooler not included +89€, ouch, ouch, ouch
For the daredevils, Aerocooler 6 is included if you order the ROG 6 in pre-order
Dimension, slightly different, why the Kunai 3 has the same name when it seems there is a specific Kunai 3 model for the ROG 6

FunBike31rog 5 and older support it, its quite common even in devices from 2016.
Didnt know about the kunai 3 thing, you got sources for that? sounds weird as hell
Ce qui est certain c'est que la coque du Kunai 3 rog 5 buttera sur le module camera du Rog 6, il faudrait la découper et il faudrait que les dimensions soit parfaitement identiques et celles-ci sont officiellement inconnues !! pour l'instant seul le testeur de phonandroid a remarqué la différence en comparant avec les Rog 5 et Rog 6
Rog 5 site FR, 239g,173.00 x 77.00 x 9.90 mm
Rog 6 Global, tous les sites, 239g (no dimensions)
Rog 6 (Tencent) site CN, 239 g 173 mm × 77 mm × 10,4 mm
Rog 6 mesure testeur https://www.phonandroid.com/test-asus-rog-phone-6-pro.html
plus hauts (0,2 mm), très légèrement moins larges (0,3 mm) et très légèrement plus épais (0,4 mm)
Rog 6 Site US Qualcomm® Adreno™ 660 🤣🤣
Yes, 50 is very bad, I agree but the test shows that it is reached in 20 min, on my Rog 5 (test myself) with the 1st Firmware 10 min was enough to reach 50 with the same software benchmark (with the new firmware you can still reach 50° but you need an ambient temperature of +30° and there is no longer any performance (25-30 fps at best)
Error on my part for the codecs, but for the lowlatency there is such a difference with other devices that I wonder if the Rog 5 actually supports it.
