This Is the Most Powerful Phone of Year 2019
We’ve seen this year a lot of new powerful phone releases that satisfied both tech enthusiasts and regular users. We’re still waiting for the Galaxy Note 10, which might be the most anticipated thing yet. As far as we know, it’s one of the strongest smartphones of this year.
But there’s this trend of new contenders on the market that go head to head with regular flagship models. OnePlus, for example, has grown to be a well-known and trusted manufacturer over the past couple of years. With the recent release of OnePlus 7 Pro, the company has proved their potential in competing with the likes of Samsung.
Similarly, Asus has been paving the way for new advanced releases on their part. Today we’re talking about the Asus ROG Phone II. We’ll go over all the details you need to know to assess this particular smartphone. But before we do that, we dare to say that Asus might have actually created the most powerful phone of 2019 yet!
What Are the Specifications of Asus ROG Phone II
We all know that gaming smartphones are getting popular by the day. They’re much similar to any flagship device, but manufacturers try to pump more functionalities and features into these smartphones. We’ve seen incredible gaming phones by Xiaomi, Nubia and even Razer.
But Asus is taking it up a notch with their ROG Phone II. The device’s display is around 6.59-inch OLED Full HD, which has a built-in fingerprint scanner and a 120Hz refresh rate. As for the processor, the company is using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus, which is better enhanced than its 855 older version. The new processor enhances the performance of the graphics by 15%.
The ROG Phone II comes with a whopping 12 GB RAM and a huge storage of 512 GB making it the most powerful phone. It is quite a viable option for gaming, since most advanced smartphone games require at least 2GB of storage. It’s quite mesmerizing to see a company pumping that much tech into a neat little thing!
Battery and Design of ROG Phone II
First of all, you’re looking at a 48-megapixel primary lens on this device. That’s not how it ends, Asus couldn’t be satisfied. They integrated a cooling system with a vapor chamber and vents and all!
But jokes aside, you’re getting a 6,000 mAh battery with fast-charging capabilities at 30W. According to The Verge, this phone endured 7 hours of PUBG at the refresh rate of 60 till it began to give in. If you don’t play that many hours, your phone will last you for a much longer time.
The design itself is fairly decent; not too flashy, as expected from a gaming phone, and not too simplistic. It gives out its own contribution to the urban design and highlights of the gaming community. But it’s still pretty manageable and not too poppy!
How Much Does The Most Powerful Phone Cost?
Okay, let’s compare something for a second. We know that the Galaxy Note 10 will be available at a rough price of $900. The specs on the ROG Phone 2 are incredibly pumped to be called the most powerful phone… much higher than we’d expect from a smartphone. When 5G rolls out, this new approach to design and manufacturing will make use of the technology on so many levels.
But what are we comparing? Well, the ROG Phone 2 comes at the same price of $900. It would be a question of whether to get this phone or get the Note 10. But look at it this way: if you’re getting a phone at this price, wouldn’t you be in for high-end tech parts? Because Asus’ little thing is all about that!
Well, it’s not so little… and it’s incredibly powerful backed with massive RAM and processor. It would still depend on personal preferences and what you do with the phone. The Asus new release, however, is a remarkable addition to the gaming phones and the neat high-end devices we rarely see.
Should You Buy a Gaming Phone?
We’ve all heard about gaming laptops, right? We know them and we’re familiar with their existence. They’re a bit heavier, and not your usual notebook to carry around. But what’s a gaming phone, really?
A gaming phone is simply a smartphone that is slightly more enhanced than the regular ones you usually get. If you look at this way, the Asus ROG Phone 2 is merely a good phone with a large screen. What differentiates it from the others is that… under its hood, it just has better parts that makes it a powerful phone.
You’d be compromising a little bit for carrying around a slightly larger phone. But if you don’t mind or you like carrying it around in a purse, that’s your thing. In all honesty, though, this new hype of gaming phones should be ignored… but we can’t get ourselves to do it. Because you’re getting really good new releases; and manufacturers are getting excited about increasing the power of the hardware.
But it all comes down to you. Android phones have been developed by many manufacturers; and that’s, in my own opinion, what beats the Ios so hard. We get to have amazing releases, specifically designed for gaming and heavy-use, like the Asus ROG Phone 2. And you’d still go for Apple? Let us know in the comments below if you’ll be considering the new Asus phone. We’d love to hear your opinion on this.
