ASUS Said They Made The Best Phone But...
Pros: -Beautiful screen, good to watch SONY OLED demos on youtube, -Insanely loud, great to assert dominance other people who listen to their phones in public on max volume, -Ram feels unlimited, having millions of apps open and not caring anymore is nice, -Battery is endless, "charger go brrrrrrr", its fast, really fast, -Live wallpapers don't put a dent in battery life, -Camera is ok, can take really good pictures but you may find yourself using manual focus for any picture you want to come out good, autofocus is a little dumb but it's manageable, -RGB built into the back, thats cool and a flex on people who don't have RGB phones, -Its gpu and cpu are OP and it can emulate PS2 titles just fine, im sure all mobile games work fine too but I don't partake, -They give you a case with it, that was nice of them, -Box it comes in is the most bougie thing I think ive ever seen and I though Huawei was bad, cool to show to people then loses all appeal a day later
Cons: -Theme store and launcher are a disaster, -Too few themes to pick from and it's all basically advertisements for PUBG, Genshin impact,ect, -Launcher is a little challenged and everytime you change a theme it changes all of your ringtones, notifications sounds, lock sounds, UI color, and aren't individually customizable which is really annoying to change everything back every single time, -Then a few days later the UI colors will revert back to default orange so if you any other colored theme (purple in my case) it will now look like vomit instead, -Phone comes with no default apps for notes or calender, like why not include that? people use those things ya know?, -No flashlight widget, it's in your upper tiles which is weird for me, may be normal for other people, -Fingerprint reader is sus and always saying my thumb isnt mine even though I scanned every inch of that thing on that stupid screen, works when it wants to, -Face Unlock is great and instant, unless you're an introvert who stays inside in a dark room all day, then not so much, -I've heard the phone is very fragile, no drop or will probably be sad afterwards, -Fan thing that it comes with is gimmicky and useless, blows air on the back of the phone, does nothing and doesnt fit in pocket 0/10,
Overall Review: Would definitely recommend, id say a solid 8/10, Honestly just buy it but if you buy anything less than the 18gb model why even buy the phone? Just do it, stop thinking about it. You don't need rent or food, just RGB phone.
