ASUS ROG Phone 2 camera performance is disappointing says DxOMark

ASUS ROG Phone 2 camera performance is disappointing says DxOMark

Following the footsteps of the Razer Phone, a few phone makers have started carving a niche gaming smartphone market that combined the usual high-end specs you'd see in premium flagships with a few gaming-centric touches. The ASUS ROG Phone, both the first and the current second-gen model, is arguably the most expensive of the group but while the ROG Phone 2 does have the makings of a topnotch gaming phone, it seems to have missed out on one of the most important aspects of modern phones today: the cameras.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 gaming laptop has a subtle dot-matrix display

ASUS Republic of Gamers has announced a number of new products at CES 2020, including its new ROG Zephyrus G14 and G15 gaming laptops. Despite having enough power to handle your favorite games, the new ROG Zephyrus models are quite thin and relatively light. The G14 is available with an optional AniMe Matrix LED display on the lid, which features more than 1,000 mini LEDs to express the player's personal style using animated GIFs.

ASUS ROG and NVIDIA reveal 360Hz G-SYNC display made for esports

While graphics cards tend to get a lot of attention when it comes to PC gaming hardware, enthusiasts and pro players alike will tell you that the quality of your display is very important as well. You don’t have to go far to find a PC gamer singing the praises of high refresh rate displays, with many of them using either a 144Hz or 240Hz monitor instead of the more commonly seen 60Hz monitor. NVIDIA and ASUS ROG are taking things one step further today by announcing a 360Hz display that’s compatible with G-Sync.

Small tweaks we wish these smartphone brands would make

Small tweaks we wish these smartphone brands would make

Do you ever look at someone else’s phone and wish you had just that one feature that would make your phone perfect? We all want the flawless device, but many manufacturers insist on certain designs and features that put it shy of perfection. A phone may have the best camera in the business but have an atrocious camera arrangement; another phone could have max-ed out specs but miss out on sturdy materials to protect it.

ASUS ProArt StudioBook Pro 15 launches with serious hardware and a high price

If you're in the market for a laptop that screams "Pro," then you'll be pleased to know that the ASUS ProArt StudioBook Pro 15 is now available to purchase. This is a laptop that's so "Pro" that ASUS put it in the name twice! It doesn't get much better than that, does it?

ASUS ROG Phone 2 Android 10 Beta starts now

ASUS ROG Phone 2 Android 10 Beta starts now

The ROG Phone and its current successor the ROG Phone 2 arguably represent the spirit of PC gaming transferred to mobile with their looks, specs, and accessories. They are also arguably the most expensive of the current generation of gaming smartphones and may also be burdened by ASUS' track record when it comes to Android updates. ASUS seems to be turning over a new leaf when it started the beta program for the ZenFone 6 last week. And exactly as many hoped, the ROG Phone 2's turn has come.

ASUS ZenFone 6 Android 10 update inspires some confidence

ASUS ZenFone 6 Android 10 update inspires some confidence

ASUS is not a name that would immediately pop up in conversations about smartphones but it has two killer phones this year. The rather eccentric ZenFone 6 puts a new spin, or flip rather, to the popup camera design problem while the ASUS ROG Phone II definitely puts the game in gaming smartphones. But while ASUS has made impressive hardware this year, it has yet to prove it can pull off something similar with software. It may be trying to do exactly that with an Android 10 update rolling out to the ZenFone 6 now.

ASUS ROG Phone 2 teardown reveals one critical flaw

ASUS ROG Phone 2 teardown reveals one critical flaw

Gaming smartphones are designed for a niche market but many of them actually offer the same high-end features of regular flagships at almost half the price. ASUS' second stab at that market is perhaps the one exception. Yes, it does have one of the best combination of specs this year but the $900 price tag might scare off some mobile gamers into the arms of its rivals. Perhaps more damning, however, is the revelation of the ROG Phone II's one weakness, making it not only an expensive investment but also a risky one.

ASUS ROG Phone 2 durability puts external strength to the test

ASUS ROG Phone 2 durability puts external strength to the test

If you ask people what the best smartphone is this year, they might easily give name a Samsung Galaxy or an Apple iPhone or maybe even a Huawei Mate. Ask them what the most powerful smartphone is, however, and they might stumble a bit. While those premium phones do offer some of the best specs in the market, one phone tries to outdo them all in that game. Quite appropriately, that's the ASUS ROG Phone 2 gaming smartphone and JerryRigEverything is testing whether its strength doesn't just come from within.

ASUS ROG Phone 2 go on pre-order in the US

Gaming smartphones still seem to be a thing, despite how many find the idea of a dedicated smartphone for gaming almost superfluous. At least for ASUS, Black Shark, Red Magic, and, for now, Razer, there is still some promise in that niche mobile market, which is why they keep on putting out new models every year, sometimes even twice a year. The latest to arrive is the ASUS ROG Phone 2 which is bringing an almost lethal combination of specs and feature with an equally lethal price tag.

ASUS showed up at IFA 2019 with a slate of new laptops, desktops, and accessories in tow.
