The new ROG Phone is already in the market and here is our take on the new phone for gamers in the Indian market
One of the best gaming smartphones making their way in the Indian market segment is the Asus’ ROG Phone Series. Launched in 2018, the brand’s series has been upgraded with a new model every year. And speaking of the same, the brand is back with a new model in 2020. This year, Asus launched with ROG Phone 3, a successor to the Phone 2.
Today at autonmobiles, we are going to pave forward for the latest gadget review India. Welcoming the third iteration bringing in the high-standard industry-first features along with software improvements for booting the gaming experience.
We will commence in every segment of the phone and whether it is a good catch in 2020.
Design of The ROG Phone 3
The phone continues to feature the premium glass-aluminium tone just like its previous models or series. The touch of sophistication and novelty is the case of redesigning of the back outlook. It is added with toned-down flashy functionality with flattened glass construction.
The back has a mainstream outlook but again, like the other predecessors, has the ROG Logo right at the back making it easier for others to recognize the brand that you are using.
Well, it is quite evident that the ROG series has been specifically designed for gamers. So, if you are expecting the tinge of elegance, we say a big NO.
It features a thick, heavy and tall display, unlike normal smartphones. The tall form makes it easier for holding and helps in operating landscape functioning. The aluminium frame offers a better gripping experience, boosting confidence exclusively in fast-paced games.
The heavyweight does not add much of the value in terms of gaming on the phone but the weight of the phone makes sense. Speaking of the phone, the battery features 6000 mAh.
How is the display of ROG Phone 3?
The latest edition of Asus ROG features along with the same display fresh rate like that of the previous model. With the enhancement in the technology, the new model brings in all new AMOLED screens with a 144Hz refresh rate.
Serving an aspect ratio of 19:5:9, the screen has a 6.59-inch AMOLED Screen featured with top-notch HD+ resolution. In very fewer smartphones, the screen comes with rounded corners but does not have any distractions whatsoever. The uncommon display of the ROG Phone 3 is open to both games and non-gamers.
Speaking of the performance, the display is pretty navigated and responsive. Apart from the same, there is the incorporation of adaptive mode with 4 ranges of refresh rates – 144Hz, 120Hz, 90Hz, and 60Hz. The automation of the rates is adaptable completely based on the on-screen content requirement. The display is pretty smooth and does not miss on the shutter frames. Well, rendered with neutral colours and keeps along with multiple display profiles.
How is the gaming approach in terms of the display?
In a way for the gamers perspective, the display offers a 270 Hz touch-sampling rate. This is completely encompassed to gaming-centric optimization. In very rare of the smartphone models you will come across that the gaming gives way to supporting a screen of 144 Hz refresh rate that too on Android phase. The implementation of 270 Hz touch-sample rate has been something glaring the attention of the gamers. Along with the same, the model does feature enhanced gaming experience through different gaming titles.
How is the camera for the new phone?
Just because it is a gaming phone, does not mean that there will be any less feature update in terms of camera. The ROG Phone 3 brings in improved optics along with valued added features for boosting the camera experience.
Speaking of the camera specifications, the phone comes with a triple-camera set-up on the back. It has – 64MP primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, 13 MP ultra-wide sensor giving a 125-degree field of view and a 5MP macro sensor. The front camera has a 24 MP camera.
The specification of the camera might not be too versatile but does have good images clicked with shutterbugs. Daylight photography with primary lens does give way to detailed imagery with a good dynamic range, natural colours and optimal contrast. The sensor makes way to focus on the subject and does have zero shutter lag. The result is pretty impressive.
Coming to the ultra-wide sensor, the distance pictures for landscape and static frames are going to go. Capture frames through ultra-wide make way to some distortion but the output is okayish. The macro sensor does not give a productive output. Good for close-ups but you need to have loads of patience for the same.
Under low light, the performance of the camera is pretty good. In comparison to other gaming smartphones, the camera does not disappoint here in these terms. It works effectively under night mode vision completely channelised to optic performance under dim-lights. Though, there is nothing to be out of the box scenario to look into.
The camera does add a myriad of features to explore and get along for experiments. It does have the panorama mode – working for both visual levels of orientation. The pro video mode helps in controlling and adjusting to the camera settings. It has made a feature of the new smartphone model. Motion tracking of 60 frames per second comes with advanced functionality in comparison to other phones.
As we keep aside the imagery and photographs, we are satisfied with the video quality and performance. It could record up to 8K resolution ranging to 25fps. It supports 4K videos from both front and rear cameras. The interesting fact about the phone is that it helps in the customized microphone sensitivity during video recording.
As we sweep to the auto video mode, it will help in suppressing wind noise and enhance the acoustic version with the mic focus. Pro video mode helps in setting audio directions through 3D surround, mic focus, front receiving, and rear receiving. Such features are hard to be seen and does not come in comparison to other gaming phones in India.
