DanishbluntI kinda cool with it:
The rog6 is already proving to be a rog5 with new chip and downgrades. it's fragile like the Rog5, heats like an oven without cooler like the Rog5, performance is "ok" for now, but will degrade over update since passively it simply cant sustain itself without damaging internal components. On screen is equally awful as Rog5. Speaker are a considerable downgrade. Battery life is extremley poor as well especially during gaming.
The rog 6 is a hard pass.
DanishbluntIt's kinda subjective, even I spent RM349 to get the new ROG 5 Cooler, my previous ROG Phone 5 won't get any additional International Warranty, once it become faulty, I just gonna spent at least another RM2000-3000 to get a new phone anyway. But in the end, the main issue is, I don't spend more than 10minutes on phone for gaming consumption, gaming capability is just an add-on bonus to me. (But I do play narrative games on PS5, Nintendo Switch, ROG RTX3070, just mobile non-narrative focus game aren't my taste)
Unlike you most people care what they get for money and don't want a crappy phone that goes empty on battery in no time and needs a chunky cooler to function properly.
You would literally have been better off paying for the Rog5 cooler and have a better experience while having paid less. What you did was pay for a downgrade.
Also forget 90fps in FF, the game will run 60fps at max. While you will run the game at 60fps and get battery drained in no time and chunky cooler, people with a consumer phones will run the game at 60fps as well but have much longer battery life.
Contrary to popular belief, "high end" games are not hard to run. The reason games lag like hell is because of bad performance management and unoptimized code.
Here you go:
Oneplus 7, running with snapdragon 845 genshin high settings 60fps. Note that the 845 in terms of graphics is supposedly 120% worse. Less than half the performance, yet 60fps on high settings in genshin.
My optimzied Rog3 runs games way better than any rog5/6 can and will run much longer on a single charge while not needing any external cooling. I can play PGR for around 8 hours on a single charge, it's dreamland for Rog5/rog6.
People wasting money on "upgrading" the SoC is just sad.
DanishbluntI can see the point which you trying to highlight its weaknesses,
Your points are laughable. You're literally trying to bullshit yourself. I don't think I've ever seen anyone cope as hard as you. All your "upgrade" points are a joke.
You claim you don't game or care for performance yet 5/9 points are related to theoretical performance, then you have 1 last point that is "same as rog5 features".
IPX4 is splash resistance, while Rog5 and previous rog phones dont have the rating, they are equally splash resistant. you only have 2 valid points, 1. Warranty, 2. Design that you like. That's it.
- Bad battery life
- Downgraded speakers
- Downgraded Camera (main lens is better hardware wise but software optmization is bad)
- Downgraded DAC
- Downgraded Microphone (3 array vs 4 array)
- Forced to use the crappy external cooling when gaming on the go
As for your other points:
1.) I feel you there, notch or punchholes are cancer
2.) It's garbage. Rog6 speakers are a joke. its getting shit on so badly it's unfunny. It literally gets beaten by an Iphone 13 pro, not even max version.
3.) Very common on many phones
4.) isn't this a normal android feature? I'm not aware of a phone that doesnt behave like this?
5.) dno, seems like very gimmicky thing to begin with but eh.
6.) You make something a requirement that you never used before, bruh.
I don't think I've ever seen someone coping as hard as you.
