The ASUS ROG Phone is the mobile gaming phone you deserve. We’ve always believed in this idea but some people may think it’s an overkill. It could be anything you want it to be but for the hard-core gamers, it can be another ultimate mobile gaming device. There are a number of gaming phones being released in the market. Good thing ASUS jumped into the bandwagon since it already has the ROG line. From the time it was first rumored to be launching back in May to the time we got our hands-on, the ASUS ROG Gaming Phone has never failed to make an impression if we’re talking about the style and design.
Of course, we have yet to spend hours playing using the phone but we know our experience will leave us feeling excited. A hands-on treatment isn’t enough.
