First Impressions on ASUS ROG Phone 3- Should you Buy it?
Plus Points of ROGPhone 3-
ASUS has done a good job on the ROG Phone 3 in terms of upgradations like choosing the right CPU for the Beast, a beast because it is a beast in terms of performance and yes it is as its not a phone for gamers but heavenly amazing & smooth. Asus has improved Air Triggers on ROG Phone 3 which is a nice thing upgrading for ROGPhone2.
Now you can use Air Triggers in a much better way for reference check the Video above, also Improved Camera with 8K support, Big 6KmAh Battery, Loud Speakers, 144hz Refresh Rate Display (highest on a Smartphone), Extra Gears this stands no less to crush up anyone comes between.
Honestly, we aren’t able to pinpoint much bad or negative about it some there are a few which we think to look at,
Minus Points of ROGPhone 3-
For gamers, its almost necessary to have a Headphone Jack, well ASUS has removed it in this one which is something we miss but the adapter has been given that reserves one of your port which is bad, Design wish coming from ROG Phone 1 to 3 well we consider ROG Phone 2 had the best one, although RGBs are still there ROG feeling at back looks faded (maybe my us).
In overall 30W HyperCharge, Big Screen, Killing Performance, Strong Built, Premium Design all at a Price starting from Rs.49999 seriously a best anyone can have in their hand (remember we mean big hands coz it’s a big one- Phone!!) so keep that in mind.
Also if you love to click your Pictures in the Most Professional way then maybe you don’t like it sooo much as because Camera is great but not the greatest know as the phone is for Gamers or for Performance Lovers. Still as mentioned at Price which it comes we bow it with respect and welcome the Device with open arms.
