ASUS ROG Phone 2 (New) Unlocked GSM US Version & Warranty, 512GB Storage, 12GB RAM, 6.6” FHD+ AMOLED 120Hz Display
Key Features and Benefits:
- Dominating performance
ROG Phone II is powered by the world’s fastest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus Mobile Platform, with a 2.96GHz clock speed and up to 12GB RAM for effortless gaming power. The latest Adreno’ 640 GPU brings faster display throughput and greater power efficiency to the table, making ROG Phone II a graphics powerhouse that’s unfazed by demanding visuals. And it doesn’t end there: the high-capacity 512GB UFS 3.0 ROM provides ultrafast data storage, and connectivity is supercharged with 4G LTE Cat 18 download speeds of up to 1.2Gbps and Wi-Fi speeds of up to 4.6Gbps with WiGig. If you crave mind-blowing performance, look no further than ROG Phone II.
- Max cooling for max performance
The second-generation GameCool II cooling system in ROG Phone II has a newly designed 3D vapor chamber that’s even more effective at removing heat from the phone during full-speed operation. There’s also a new AeroActive Cooler II that can fit over the new Aero Case3, and which features redesigned fan blades that deliver even more airflow into the ROG Aerodynamic System. It’s much quieter and cools ROG Phone II more effectively at high loads, which translates directly into better performance for no-compromise full-speed operations. ROG Phone II won’t let you down in the heat of battle, no matter how long victory takes.
- Play fast, play accurate
ROG Phone II takes gaming visuals to the next level with the world’s first 120Hz/1ms AMOLED 10-bit HDR display, a truly magnificent 6.59-inch screen that delivers unbelievably fluid, blur-free gaming and entertainment. Its world-beating color accuracy – with a Delta-E of less than 1 – ensures games look just like the developer intended, and the unrivaled touch latency gives you instant responsiveness for a competitive edge. To protect this state-of-the-art display, it’s covered with super-tough Corning Gorilla Glass 6.
- Non-stop stamina
The monster 6000mAh battery in ROG Phone II gives you non-stop gaming power, wherever you are. ROG HyperCharge direct-charging technology – which takes the charging circuitry out of the phone and puts it in the special 30W charger – gives ROG Phone II shorter and safer charge times. Support for PD charging means you can easily charge your phone with any USB-C charger, or charge other devices with your ROG Phone II.
- Engineered for victory
ROG Phone II is engineered for victory from the ground up, with its pioneering landscape-oriented ergonomic design. Uprated AirTrigger II technology uses an advanced architecture to reduce the vibration latency to 20ms, and also gives you extra-precise ultrasonic touch controls – now supporting both tap and slide motions – with fine-tuned haptics for a console-like button feel.
- Immersive stereo sound, crystal-clear communication
ROG Phone II is armed with truly awesome immersive audio capabilities. It has ultra-powerful front-facing speakers at each end of the phone for pinpoint stereo imaging in landscape mode, a 24-bit/192KHz audio engine with Hi-Res Audio support, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and DTS: X Ultra for theater-quality surround-sound. Games have never sounded this good. To ensure the clearest in-game voice communications possible, ROG Phone II is equipped with a noise-canceling quad-mic array, so your team chat won’t be interrupted by background noise. Effective teamwork is effortless with ROG Phone II.
- Landscape-optimized Wi-Fi
Gaming over Wi-Fi can be a hit-and-miss experience if your connection isn’t perfect. ROG Phone II is the first phone of its kind to use a multi-antenna system that minimizes lag and ensures rock-solid connectivity. The four antennas are optimally located to deliver maximum Wi-Fi throughput when you’re gaming in landscape mode, minimizing lag for the best connected experience. And to ensure your gaming is never interrupted, the clever Game Genie software prevents the phone switching between Wi-Fi and 4G when you’re gaming.
- Total control: RDG Armoury Crate and RDG Game Genie
Every aspect of ROG Phone II is designed to immerse you in your gaming, starting with the brand-new ROG Armoury Crate and ROG Game Genie apps. Armoury Crate is the command and control center for your gaming experience, where you can browse and run all your installed games, manage auto-launch game profiles, and configure all your phone’s game-related settings. Game Genie helps you get the very best gaming experience on your ROG Phone II, and runs automatically when you launch a game. Its easily accessible toolbar can be called up at any time to optimize performance, turn off notifications and messages, lock brightness, display game and device info, customize the AirTriggers and much more! Gaming is more than a pastime with ROG Phone II – it’s a way of life.
- Total control: feel the action
With ROG Phone II you can actually feel the action all around you, courtesy of the powerful Dual Surrounding Vibration system that provides 3D force-feedback sensations. The AirTriggers also incorporate feedback for a fully immersive sensory experience.
- Outshine the competition
ROG Phone II features ASUS Aura RGB lighting, with an illuminated rear ROG logo that can display a whole rainbow of lighting schemes: static, breathing, strobing or color cycling. You can trigger lighting effects with phone events such as incoming calls, notifications and more, to give your ROG Phone II a unique personality.
Your buying guide for the best phones in 2020
When choosing a phone, you should consider these things: build quality and design, ease of use, features, performance and value.
Generally speaking, a flagship phone in 2020 will start at around £700 but can cost over £1,000 in some cases. On contract, you’re looking at between £30 and £50-per-month on average but you can spend a lot more if you want an expensive phone and lots of mobile data.
We also have charts for mid-range and budget phones if you’re looking for something still excellent, but also more affordable.
Buying a phone outright is will usually give you the best value, but we appreciate finances in the real world don’t always accommodate such big standalone purchases. If you can, you’ll obviously need a SIM card and plan, as well as the phone. If you don’t already have one, check out our best SIM-only deals.
Should you buy an iPhone or Android phone?
There’s more than one mobile phone operating system, but really only two worth talking about: Android and iOS.
The vast majority of phones today run Android; 10 being the latest version. Apple’s iOS platform, meanwhile, may have a lower market share but developers almost always release their apps on iOS first, partly as a result of this it has one of the best app stores you can find.
If you have an Android phone or an iPhone and want to move to a phone running the other OS (operating system), it’s fairly easy to transfer your contacts and other select data from one to the other. What you can’t move is paid-for apps and certain app data, so keep this in mind if you’re considering a change of platform – and research any specific concerns you may have about the process.
Why you should buy an unlocked phone
An unlocked phone is one which is not tied to any particular mobile operator, such as Vodafone or EE. Buying ‘unlocked’ usually means buying the phone outright without a SIM.
The most important point is that an unlocked phone is almost always a better deal than buying a phone on contract – if you can afford it.
The only real exception to this is Apple’s iPhones – because of their traditional popularity, operators often subsidise the cost of buying an iPhone in order to lock you into a lucrative long-term deal.
Generally speaking, if you can afford the upfront cost of the handset, you will pay less over the life of your phone by buying unlocked.
More importantly, you are not locked into a lengthy contract. If you want a new handset at any time, you can buy one without having to up-purchase your way out of said contract or commit to another two years.
Just be sure to make certain the phone you’re getting is not locked to a certain
