With all the support outside of these main specifications, of course the ROG Phone 6 Pro looks very reliable as a gaming phone and has its own added value. However, it is incomplete if we do not know what the advantages and disadvantages are more specifically.
Advantages and disadvantages of ASUS ROG Phone 6 Pro
As a new gaming phone marketed in Indonesia, ROG Phone 6 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 (4nm) Octa-Core 3.19 GHz chipset which is the fastest chipset made by Qualcomm to date.
The chipset is also supported by 18GB LPDDR5 RAM and 512GB UFS 3.1 internal storage. With that much RAM, of course, ROG Phone 6 Pro can devour various popular heavy games.
In addition, the CPU of this cellphone is also equipped with a GameCool 6 cooling system with Boron Nitride (BN) to accompany the vapor chamber and a larger graphite layer than its predecessor to reduce heat when playing games.
Thanks to the combination of the CPU and cooling system, the temperature of the ROG Phone 6 Pro is claimed to be reduced by up to 10ºC. To make it even more optimal, ROG Phone 6 Pro can also be paired with the AeroActive Cooler 6 cooling accessory attached to the back body.
When users play games on the ROG Phone 6 Pro screen, they will also feel satisfied because it has a 6.78-inch Samsung AMOLED panel with Full HD + resolution (2448 x 1080 pixels) supported by a 165Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, Delta-E < 1 , HDR10+, Eye Care Display for eye protection against blue light exposure, and a scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass Victus coating.
For control of playing games, interestingly, ROG Phone 6 Pro provides the AirTrigger 6 feature which looks like there are physical buttons on the top side of the device. AirTrigger 6 has two ultrasonic buttons and can detect various finger movements or gestures.
The settings for this cellphone can be accessed through the Armory Crate application to change various game modes, CPU status, battery, to the game library that has been installed on the cellphone.
While in the middle of a game, ROG Phone 6 Pro users can also adjust the frame rate comfort, play mode, and more through Game Genie. Thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 chipset, the audio of this device has received a suite of Snapdragon Sound and Qualcomm aptX Adaptive technologies so that users can hear more lifelike sound.
This gaming cellphone battery is also 6,000mAh accompanied by 65W fast charging. Then it is equipped with features such as WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2, 5G, Dual SIM, NFC, in-display fingerprint sensor, facial recognition, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a microphone with ASUS noise reduction.
With a price tag of Rp. 18,999,000 which can be considered quite expensive, ROG Phone 6 Pro doesn’t have too much improvement compared to ROG Phone 6 from the hardware side. In addition, there is no microSD slot for expanding storage. Meanwhile, the photography sector is also the same as that used by his brother.
With the configuration of a 5 MP macro camera and a 12 MP front lens, it doesn’t quite match the price tag. This cellphone is also fairly heavy so that users may feel more sore when holding it for a long time.
