Price

Republic of Gamera Phone 2 can come Under a Pricehood of around Rs.50000-70000 but for now, its a Secret for all which Asus has not disclosed, as soon as the Price will reveal we Update it here in this Section.

Review Time

ROG Phone 2 is a True Gaming Beast of 2019 without any doubt but thinking like a usual user maybe it falls back as if you are not a gamer then you may don’t find any interest in this Heavy Build Device & Paying this much for ROG Phone 2. It’s True that its Specs are bloomingly fantastic and become one of the 2nd Device after OnePlus 7/7Pro to give UFS 3.0 Storage, still the Price at which it will come can make it stand behind but if it comes under Rs.50-60K then for Sure with Stamp it is the Phone to stand out as 1st in the market.

Why? because of its Specs, its Reality and considering its Previous generation of ROG Phone 1 that stucks nowhere it holds that power to fly high.
All and All its a Phone for Gamera not for the person in a Daily use because you don’t need this much of power if I talk frankly still if you think that I want a Mini Pocket Computer where I can use it connecting it to a Desktop with Mouse+Keyboard so this is the best option.
