Review – Asus ROG Phone II 2020
It looks like a decent high-end phone. It is comparable to other high-end phones like Huawei p20 pro and razer phone. The s9+ and iPhone X will be better than it, simply because they are more refined. The things that should be virtuous in the rog phone is the storage available, 128gb and 512GB are very good amounts of storage for a phone.
Another benefit is that the rog phone will use an aggressive CPU governor, which means that the performance of the phone will be very good. Though expect the battery life to suffer. So, expect the phone to keep its performance for more than half an hour. Normal phones drop their performance by ~30% in 5 minutes.
Personally, I think that high-end phones are a luxury. As a luxury, it will be worth it. I would consider between getting it or the S9+. As a necessity, I consider 200-250$ phones ok. In terms of necessity, it isn’t worth it. It is way too expensive. This is the same for all high-end phones.
