Design-wise let me be frank the ROG phone tree is very similar to the ROG phone. I mean it’s still a big and hefty phone at 240 grams and that’s justified because this way it’s still compatible with all the accessories from last year. And this way it still packs in all the crazy ROG phone tech having said that it does have some functional changes. The ROG phone 3 has slightly different patterns on the back but it still has the gaming phone why with the ROG logo. That lights up so it’s all cool you still get the two USB supports one on the side and one on the bottom. But this time there’s no headphone jack yeah that’s the reason the phone has the dongle bundled in the box anywhere on the right you have these triggers and these are air triggers three, and they are much better to see in the Origin phone. The ultrasonic buttons worked as two usual shoulder buttons with tap and slide functions but in ROG phone 3 it’s way more functional.
The 6.5 inch FHD Plus AMOLED panel display with HDR 10 plus support Gorilla Glass 6. But the highlight is the fact that this is an insanely fast 144 Hertz display with 2 and 70 Hertz touch sampling rate and everything else has been improved to be the touch latency or the slight latency now this is my first time using a 144 Hertz panel on a smartphone. It’s a beautiful experience trust me you have to use it to believe it the UI here is just crazy smooth I mean I’m sure Asus has optimized the UI for the 144 has a refresh rate because the phone seems crazy responsive and every animation is just buttery smooth.

The ROG phone tree keeps the massive 6000 mah battery, which is awesome and the good news is that the phone will come with the 30-watt hyper charger in the box with every single radio. I’m honestly positive about the charging and the battery performance of the ROG phone tree, but what’s also exciting are the advanced battery customization features in the software.
