ASUS ROG Phone is almost perfect but needs this one thing

ASUS ROG Phone is almost perfect but needs this one thing

The ASUS ROG Phone, the fourth in a new generation of gaming-centric Android smartphones, is going to be compared a lot with the Nintendo Switch. And, to a lesser extent, the Nintendo DS. On paper and at first blush, it definitely checks of the right boxes to sing to gamers' hearts. While we anxiously and excitedly await the time for a more in-depth review, we can already see how the ASUS ROG Phone could easily snatch the mobile gaming crown. That is, if ASUS can implement one feature that’s missing from almost all mobile gaming phones and accessories.

All the oddball ASUS gadgets announced at Computex 2018

ASUS showed up at Computex 2018 with a lot of new hardware in tow. Most of this is what we'd normally expect from ASUS and its Republic of Gamers arm - new notebooks, desktops, and accessories meant to satisfy the mainstream users, workaholics, and gamers among us.

But more than just having more screens than any laptop, ASUS wants you to know that Precog is also smarter than any laptop you’ll find in the market.

ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 and ScreenPad put a twist to multitasking

Productivity gurus these days may frown upon multitasking but computers are just built for that purpose. And given the trend these days, humans are heading down that road, for better or worse. Perhaps those same productivity gurus will frown upon ASUS’ new ZenBook Pro 15 and ZenBook Pro 14 for that same reason. These already powerful laptops are made even more powerful by a 5.5-inch Full HD ScreenPad masquerading as its touchpad. And this “second display” is made for one thing and one thing alone: help you be more efficient by letting you do more things at the same time.

ASUS VivoWatch BP adds a missing piece to smartwatches

ASUS VivoWatch BP adds a missing piece to smartwatches

Smartwatches have become more than just smaller smartphones. Many of them are smaller clinical labs as well. Health and fitness have become the focus of many smartwatch makers, especially Apple. Despite having countless sensors, almost all of them are missing one important functionality: measuring the user’s blood pressure. At Computex 2018, ASUS, following Omron’s footsteps at the start of this year, is addressing that problem with the new VivoWatch BP that brings a blood pressure monitor to the consumer wearable market.

ASUS ScreenPad brings Apple’s Touch Bar to touchpads

ASUS ScreenPad brings Apple’s Touch Bar to touchpads

ASUS has sometimes blazed the trail in terms of innovative design, like the now common 2-in-1 detachable form factor or the sadly retired PadFone "phone in a tablet" device line. At other times, it seems to play catch up, like with the Lenovo Yoga-like "Flip" laptops. It seems that ASUS might have something in the works that's a combination of the two. Called the "ScreenPad" this mysterious device or peripheral seems to be designed to provide the same extended control that the new MacBook Touch Bars do, but on a laptop's touchpad instead.
