The ROG Phone II is one of the most powerful phones that you can buy. Being a gaming phone, however, it also delivers mountains of power, plenty of storage options, a sensationally smooth 120Hz screen, not to mention a massive 6000mAh battery. All that translates to class-leading specs in all areas but one – imaging.
The 6.59-inch AMOLED display has a full-HD+ resolution but what’s impressive is that it has a 120Hz refresh rate. The ROG Phone 2 also features the second version of Asus’s AirTrigger system. There’s a new dual vibration system present too. The phone also uses a 3D vapour chamber system for cooling.
It’s powered by a special speed-binned Snapdragon 855+ SoC, LPDDR4X RAM, and UFS 3.0 storage. For the ROG Phone 2, you can choose a more vanilla Android theme during the setup process, instead of the default ROG theme.
For the ROG Phone 2, you can choose a more vanilla Android theme during the setup process, instead of the default ROG theme. Apps load quickly and multitasking is handled very well. Of course, the main draw of this phone is gaming, and this is hands-down one of the best devices — if not the best one — for that. Game Genie also lets you enable an overlay in games to keep an eye on the framerate, system temperature, and CPU and GPU usage in real-time.
Battery life is equally impressive, and not just because of the massive capacity of 6,000mAh. Even with the screen running at 120Hz and a lot of camera, gaming, and social usage, we still managed to easily go past one full day on a single charge.
The rear sensors on the ROG Phone 2 are the same as those on the Asus 6Z. Performance during the day is impressive and in low light, the app’s Night mode does a very good job in brightning up the scene, although not as good as some of the more expensive flagships.
