Don't worry. You can sell your ROG Phone 3, and buy ROG Phone 5. It will solved all you problem, black crush or ect!

Of course many people will buy it, they just see "rog" and "gaming" and they instantly buy.
But people with a brain will never buy Rog 5 so fast;) and will probably go to a much better Red Magic
If someone has a rog 3 there is no reason to buy rog 5, the performance are similar with Just "1 year" (8months) difference

I don't understand (maybe I am silly) when people buy a phone and they see something not comfortable with or a defect exists such as this so called black crush which seems to affect alot of you. Surely, you would take the phone back for a refund or get a new device. I mean, did I miss something?
Anyway, let's hope A11 would address some/all black crush issue - some how, some way. It's just that black crush has been there since day 1 and it's not something that people could miss with the amount of people commenting on this topic.
I will be honest, ROG is definately in it's own league with other ASUS and other manufacturer models out there, therefore there is no need to change phones every year. Don't get me wrong, it's probably a decent to have on a daily basis and for a number of new years. I used to have Samsungs and I change the phone every year (I buy the phone out right) and the performance quickly demishes probably because the loads of bloatware they install.
I have a ROG 2 and I don't think i will get a ROG 5 neither, let alone ROG 3 users 😞 There is simply no reason to change phones from me because I am happy with what I have. I would be wrong in saying I am not jealous (because I would be for the guys who buy ROG 5). I am definately looking forward to seeing ROG 5 coming out not because it's new, but the suprises it brings like no other phones.
Keep on what you're doing ASUS, stand out from the crowd. Always room for improvements.
