Received the mobile today morning, it's heavy as expected. Very fast and quick response phone. One of the fastest I have used ever. Will give detailed review after 5-6 days uses. Update - it's the real beast " The Hulk" It's fastest android phone till date, If you are gamer you will love it. It's perfectly designed for gamers. Pros - Super amoled Brilliant Display, super smooth super fast, camera quality better than my expectation , Attached the sample pictures taken at daylight . If you are not game lover and want a super fast android phone then also you can buy this beast, weight is higher side but you will get used to it with time. Cons - Actually none but still minor cons like its heats up bit while charging and I thought like with continuous Pubg play battery will last 7+ hours but it drains from 100-10 % within 4 hours continuous Pubg with auto mobile settings and smooth and extreme game mode. And at this price it think asus should have given 8/256gb variant. Because with time 128 GB will be like no use. Conclusion - This is the beast, you will never, regret with your decision. It's fastest android mobile till date and may be nothing will come close in next 4-5 months. And I think I will have to update the review again after 1 month use.
Top end performance ✊
Quick delivery and mind blowing device. Asus has set a benchmark for display by its 144Hz refresh rate screen and excellent touch response. Some people may complain about the unnecessary or unmistaken touches on bottom corners. It's understandable because of the phone length to width ratio. If you try to use it by one hand and try to reach the top corner with your thumb, these touches can happen. Apart from that a great phone and am still exploring the phone and it's capabilities. I thought that they would include the external cooling gadget along with the phone but I guess it's for 12GB RAM version. Secondly, I don't know why they aren't selling the 12GB RAM version. I would have gone for that if it was available. But that doesn't make any difference and am very happy with the 8 GB variant.
Received the device today which was quite fast depending on the place where I live. Thanks to flipkart for the superfast delivery. Now coming to performance of the device it's no doubt a total Beast !! Played pubg for half and hour, did a lot of hot drops and intense fights. Trust me the frame never went down below 57.. it was between 57-60 all the time which is great. And yes like all the other devices this one do gets heated up if u are gaming for long period of time but it's not overheating and the device does manage to maintain the balanced temperature compared to the other devices. There was no frame drops or throttle issues for heating so it gets a huge thumbs up for me !! For camera I would say I'm not really a photogenic person so for me the camera captured pretty decent shots even in low light and video quality was also quite good and the stability was pretty good too. Then again u are not gonna buy this phone for camera so don't worry about it. It has a huge 6000 mah battery just like rog 2 and battery life is quite good I really loved it !! I switched to higher refresh rates and still the battery drain was normal.. I didn't face any moment where battery was draining too fast or whatever. If u have 50k budget then close your eyes and go for this beast !! Whether u are a gamer or non gamer trust me u won't regret it !! I bought this phone after 4 years of using my old redmi note 4. I'm quite satisfied with my purchase. Thank you Asus for creating this Beast !!!
This is a performance beast !!! Gr8 display and response. Been playing since morning . No performance issues and no lag. Bit on the heavier side due to addition of parts to keep the phone cool , Just mind-blowing. Will review after a week.
