The ASUS ROG Phone II is tailor-made for Android gamers and considered “the ultimate gaming phone,” according to TechRadar.
The mobile rig packs a host of features for optimal gameplay, headlined by a beautiful AMOLED display with an industry-leading refresh rate and response time. It also has a monstrously powerful Qualcomm chipset, the biggest battery in the business, a ROG (which stands for the brand’s Republic of Gamers product family) logo with customizable RGB lighting, and a handy external cooling accessory for lengthy gaming stints.
Some might find the design of the ROG Phone II a bit ostentatious, but its gaming performance is worthy of its ROG name.
The latest ASUS ROG phone also packs customizable, touch-sensitive controls with haptic feedback, dubbed AirTrigger II. The feature allows users to program the top left and right sides of the phone to seamlessly react to any in-game action of your choice.
It’s important to note that the gaming laptop-worthy display refresh rate of the ROG Phone II is not just an impressive hardware feature. There is an impressive list of games that will allow you to really enjoy it to the fullest.
In addition to the bundled cooling device, the ASUS ROG smartphone comes with a solid selection of optional accessories for an even more immersive gaming experience.
This device includes a TwinView dock with an additional touchscreen, and a mobile dock for gaming on a full-size external monitor, among other features. The accessories are cool, but also a tad too pricey.
