Design and Display
Asus ROG smartphone is the most attractive gaming smartphone that I have ever laid my eyes on. The design part is quite similar like asus ROG gaming laptop. The ROG symbol on the phone is RGB lit and can change the colours manually. The phone comes with a 6-inch AMOLED display, a 1080x2160p resolution, 90Hz refresh rate, HDR support and 1ms pixel response time. The dual front speakers happen to be pretty loud for a smartphone,which will give the best gaming experience.s Basically, this is the kind of performance you had expect to see in a high-end gaming monitor, and it leaves little to be desired. The screen is made of Corning Gorilla Glass and its best for gaming phone.
There are two USB type-c ports, one placed at the bottom and the other at the side. The one on the side has been included to let you charge your phone, while you game in landscape mode so that the chord does not interfere with the grip. This USB-C port can also be used to attach the many accessories that Asus provides separately for the phone. On the side, there is another very cool feature called Air-Triggers, which are just two pressure sensors on the top and bottom of the phone’s right side. These air triggers can be mapped in game and they can act as an extra set of buttons which can give you adventage in a game such as a PUBG and fortnite. It is very comfortable way to play these games with air trigger controls.

As this smartphone is specially designed for gaming that means side mounted USB-C ports designed to plug into the controller and other gaming accessories. It also provide highly responsive game-fouced controls that include advanced force haptics and a pair of programmable ultrasonic AirTriggers.
Asus also unveiled a number of optional accessories to go with the ROG smartphone. It includes a TwinView Dock which facilitates a dual screen handheld mobile. Basically it’s a secondary display function which turns the phone into a handheld console, complete with physical triggers on the back. As its gaming smartphone it would be adventage to play with second screen.
A Mobile Desktop Dock is used for those who want to use the phone to power a desktop style gaming experience.
