The Asus ROG Phone line has long dominated the gaming phone market. Through a mix of incredible performance, thoughtful gaming features, stylish design, and well-planned accessories, it has routinely destroyed the competition. One of the newest devices from Asus, the ROG Phone 6, was released on July 5th, 2022. Will the latest Asus ROG Phone 6 again be another winner in the gaming section who destroys competition?
Key Features of Asus ROG Phone 6
With its curved, smooth, pearlesque, frosted glass back and its rounded metal sides, the ROG Phone 6 is one of the most attractive alternatives that are now available for gaming phones. It also has rounded metal sides.
The ROG Phone 6, which has dimensions of 173 by 77 by 10.3 millimeters, is a tall and reasonably slender object that is thicker than the majority of smartphones but does not nearly seem awkward. Even though it is somewhat large, the smartphone is still quite pleasant to carry, and it offers premium features, but there is nothing about it that is really remarkable.
It weighs 239 grams, making it one of the heaviest smartphones currently available; the iPhone 13 Pro Max, which weighs 240 grams, is only one gram more.
It is true that the ROG Phone 6 has a curving back with a frosted finish and matte sides, which give it a luxurious and appealing appearance. However, the back is rather slippery, so you should use a cover as soon as you begin using the phone. A lightweight, firm plastic casing that covers the edges and offers a little more grip is included in the package, which is a fortunate inclusive.
This gaming phone comes with amazing RGB lighting, action on a second screen, and symbols reminiscent of Stargate.
The display on the ROG Phone 6 is, for the most part, almost identical to the one seen on its predecessor. That indicates that the screen is a 6.78-inch Samsung AMOLED display with a resolution of 2448 x 1080. However, there was significant progress made in one critical area: the refresh rate. The ROG Phone 5 featured a refresh rate of 144Hz, but the ROG Phone 6 has increased all the way up to 165, putting it on par with the very finest gaming phones now available.
When it comes to the display specifications, it may not seem like much for a smartphone that costs as much as it does, but it's perfect for a device designed for gaming. The vast majority of games are presented in full high definition, and the resolution has been reduced to maintain frame rates smooth and high.
The ROG Phone 6 comes to gaming, swiping through webpages, or scrolling through social feeds, the fluidity of the action more than makes up for any potential loss of clarity that may occur.
Asus has opted for a three-camera setup for the ASUS ROG 6, offering a wide camera with a resolution of 50 megapixels, an ultra-wide camera with 13 megapixels, and a macro camera with 5 megapixels and an aperture that is not obviously stated. On paper, this all sounds completely satisfactory.
This phone does not have a telephoto zoom, which is a bit of a letdown considering that most flagships come equipped with one. Instead, it seems to provide wide, ultra-wide, and macro shooting modes, which are more in line with what one could expect from a camera on a mid-range smartphone.
The ROG Phone 6 has a camera with a resolution of 50 megapixels, which is capable of recording video in both 4K and 8K resolutions, and produces photos that are more than satisfactory when used in daylight. The macro is enjoyable to use but does not provide amazing results, in contrast to the ultra-wide lens, which produces images that are unquestionably very wide.
When you turn off the lights, though, the whole camera arrangement becomes unreliable and struggles to produce quality images—the kind of images that a flagship device really shouldn't have trouble producing.
At least the camera on the front of the device has a respectable 12 megapixels of resolution, but, then again, you've undoubtedly seen better in this regard as well.
Performance and Software
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 is a higher-clocked variant of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 that is used in flagships such as the Sony Xperia 1 IV and the Xiaomi 12 Pro. It is introduced by the Asus ROG Phone 6, which is available for purchase.
Asus has done a lot to assist the ROG Phone 6 maintain its cool, despite having a mightier generation of Qualcomm's CPU than the original 8 Gen 1 did. This is in contrast to the fact that the original 8 Gen 1 has become renowned for growing hot under strain.
Asus has moved the CPU such that it is now located in the center of the phone. This accomplishes a few cool things, the first of which is that it transfers the heat away from your hands, which is particularly helpful while playing in the landscape mode.
In addition to this, it relocates it farther away from the metal frame and sets it directly beneath the optional fan attachment. In spite of our initial reservations brought on by the absence of any ventilation channels, people have been quite pleased with the ROG Phone 6's ability to effectively regulate heat during the course of our testing.
The Asus ROG Phone 6 is powered by Android 12, and users may access a broad variety of games and applications via the Google Play Store. You shouldn't expect any pre-loaded games when you first turn on the console, but you should anticipate a high level of big-gamer intensity.
The whole user interface is designed around a gaming motif, and when you press the edges of the phone, its performance mode, which is termed X-Mode, activates. This also causes the wallpaper to change.
Battery and Charging
Another year, another 6,000mAh ROG Phone; you can be overjoyed that Asus did not reduce the capacity in any way this time around. It comes as no surprise that the battery life of the phone is very lengthy, with a decrease of around 80 percent in approximately 16 hours while the screen is on and the phone is doing automatic functions like online surfing and basic picture and video editing.
The ROG Phone 6 can be fully charged with wired fast charging at 65W in under 45 minutes, which is a totally decent charging speed but is not the fastest charging speed in its class. The fact that the phone comes with a charger in the package is also included, which is terrible for the environment but might be excellent for your pocket.
Price of Asus ROG Phone 6 in Bangladesh
The ROG Phone 6 has not been officially launched in Bangladesh. It has a retail price of BDT 95444 if converted from Indian Rupee. The conversion rate here is 1 INR = 1.19 BDT. The official price of ROG Phone 6 in Bangladesh may vary due to company policy, tax, and other issues.
One might make the case that Asus has taken the safe route. The front of the ROG Phone 6 is exactly the same as the front of the ROG Phone 5 and 5s, and people would want to see even more innovation from Asus in the future. Having said that, the mobile device is more refined in its execution of the task at hand and comes with a wider variety of optional attachments than competing products such as the Red Magic 7 and the Poco F4 GT.
The level of sophistication that Asus offers to the table is what sets it apart from the other options, despite the fact that the competition is fierce. On the whole, Asus ROG Phone 6 may not be the finest phone of the year, but it can win the title of the best gaming phone in 2022.
