I used the phone with T-Mobile, internet speeds are just like my Note 9, not faster or slower, BUT AGAIN, call reception is terrible, calls took forever to connect and the sound quality was worse than those 20 year old cellular phones, and after hours looking for a solution I find out there is no solution at all!
Of course I just packed everything and send it back to Amazon just a few minutes ago.
I am not saying this is a bad phone , specs are top of the line, sound speakers are excellent, but it is not perfect, no device on planet earth it is, just my 2 cents here.

– ROG Logo has the standard Asus Aura Sync, so it syncs with music, it has breathing, strobe, comet, rainbow, etc. all your favorite RGB effects. It can be turned on or off easily through settings. So if you want to flaunt your phone with friends you can, if you want to save battery or go low profile, you can.
– The 120 hz screen is fantastic in games, sure, but MUCH more often, you will find that your general usage of the phone is amazing. Unlike desktop apps, most apps on the phone (including android OS) support 120fps. It is SOOOOO satisfying to do even simple things, like scrolling reddit and facebook in 120fps. This phone is lightning fast.
– The camera is pretty great, the reviewers might be right that certain smartphones might beat it, but it is almost certainly better than your current phone, and all the phones with better cameras compromise in other ways.
– The slow motion mode on this phone allows you to record in 1080p 240fps. If you choose not to apply the slow motion effect, then you can save this as raw 1080p 240fps video. You can do a live playback of this on your ROG Phone 2 at 120fps. I’m a big fan of this feature.
– The speakers are really good and they can get LOUD if you want. There are speakers at the top and bottom, which mean you can get normal speaker audio, instead of doing that thing where you cup the speakers with your hands on your phone. I would say that they are comparable to a mid range external speaker that’s about $50-$100. Pretty good audio quality, and you probably wouldn’t find anything better without approaching audiophile territory.
– There is built in software for audio equalizing and it is VERY GOOD and VERY EASY TO USE. My Audio Technica ATH-M50x headphones have never sounded this good EVER, not even with my desktop soundcard and equalizer on there. I had no idea they were even capable of the level of punchy bass that my settings give it. HUGE PLUS FOR THIS!!!
– ASUS provides LOTS of control and management over the phone’s overclock, fan speed, controls, profiles, battery management, RAM management, etc. And even better, this is all done in a User friendly way. You can get pretty much all of the functionality you want without tweaking with things much. But if you want the ability to deep dive and take control of your phone and mess with your settings, you can.
– Probably more, these are just the features I discovered in 1 day of owning the phone
Cons (kind of):
– This phone is LARGE. I have big hands and as much as I hate to admit it, it might take some time for me to get used to using this phone with 1 hand. The size and weight difference between the Samsung S7 and this phone is noticeable, but like….. who cares? Honestly. We’re talking about a difference in grams. You won’t feel “strain” from the weight. If you aren’t the type of person who prioritizes “Light and thin” over all else (and chances are, if you are considering this phone, you aren’t), then chances are, you’ll be like me. You’ll find the difference to be strange at first, but you’ll get used to it.
– Apparently it isn’t available on Verizon? Idk, it works fine on my AT&T network, and I’ve heard other owners running fine on T-mobile. It might be worth it to check your carrier first if you have any concerns. Oh also, I want to make a point, those rumors about no VoLTE or whatever? They are false, my phone works fine.
– Having a unique phone means that there aren’t going to be much of any cases available for this phone. By default, the phone comes with the case shown in my pictures. This case is really more to protect against basic scuffs and make it easier to grip. Idk if I would trust it with actually protecting my phone. I recommend getting the ASUS ROG Phone 2 Lightning Case from their website for $59.99 (it is currently sold out, but I think that the case that comes with this phone is at least good enough to last until they restock)
