Key Features of the ROG Phone 6 Pro
The ROG Phone 6 Pro has a more subdued design than previous versions. The design still has bold lines and geometric accents, but they're not as prominent. Gorilla Glass 3 covers the back and is curved to fit the metal frame. Still, some cool features make the ROG Phone 6 Pro stand out from the rest.
The full-colour ROG Vision display, which can be programmed to light up in response to phone activity, is located on the back of the device. There is also an RGB “dare to play” logo that supports a number of different effects.
Multiple ports for connectivity are a notable feature of ROG phones. There is still a standard 3.5-millimetre jack for headphones, and there is also a new USB-C port on the side. The side port can transfer data, send video, charge the phone while gaming, or connect to a USB-C hub.
Despite having all of these ports, the ROG 6 Pro is the first phone to offer an IP rating for water resistance. As it is only IPX4, light splashes are the only thing it would resist.
The new AeroActive cooling fan and ROG clip are included in the phone's package, which can be used to connect to console gaming controllers. This is ASUS's best fan so far. It's easier to set up than last year's model, and it has four trigger keys on the back that can be used in any direction.
As if that weren't remarkable enough, it has RGB lighting and a kickstand for propping up your phone. The fan's purpose goes much beyond simply keeping your hands cool. It lowers the temperature of the phone's internal parts to make them work better and keep them from getting too hot.
The ROG Phone 6 Pro has the latest and finest Android processor, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. The ROG 6 Pro also has a redesigned internal architecture that improves cooling even when the fan is off in the default performance mode.
Next, let's talk about the display. The ROG 6 Pro has a 6.78-inch AMOLED screen with a 1080p resolution, Gorilla Glass Victus protection, and an incredible 165 Hertz refresh rate.
Various locked refresh rate settings are available for you to select from. In auto mode, the frequency will drop to 60 hertz when idling to save energy, which is the lowest frequency possible. Plus, for unmatched responsiveness, you also receive a touch sampling rate of 720 Hertz, which is super fast.
The AMOLED screen is excellent. It's sharp and has good contrast, and it supports 10-bit colour, HDR10+, and Widevine L1 for streaming in Full HD. In manual mode, you can get up to 500 nits of brightness, but this can be increased to 830 nits in auto mode if you need more brightness outside.
With the ROG Phone 6 Pro, Dirac has created a new audio technology called Virtuo. The Audio Wizard also offers a wealth of customization possibilities. Both speakers have their own amplifiers, so you get two identical front-facing speakers with equal power.
The ROG Phone 6 Pro has a maximum storage capacity of 512 GB, which can't be expanded via MicroSD but can be connected to an external hard drive.
ASUS' ROG UI is layered on top of Android 12 to give it its unique look and feel. It has a gamer look by default, but you can change it if you prefer a more conventional style.
ASUS has a good set of battery care features that work together to help you charge the battery in the best way possible so that it lasts longer. The battery features a 6,000 mAh capacity split into two cells with MMT technology for rapid charging. The phone also comes with a 65-watt charger.
As for the cameras, the ROG Phone 6 Pro has a main camera with 50 megapixels, an ultra-wide camera with 13 megapixels, and a macro camera with 5 megapixels. Selfies taken with the camera have a resolution of 12 megapixels and are sharp and colourful.
The primary camera can capture video at 24 fps at an 8K resolution. The main camera's 4K footage looks fantastic, with lots of clarity and vivid colours that cover a wide dynamic range. The ultrawide cam can also shoot in 4K, and the video is good, with lots of detail for a camera of this type.
You can also smooth out the footage with the main camera's electronic stabilization, which works all the way up to 8K quality.
Overall, ASUS has created a top-tier gaming phone that is nearly unrivalled in terms of the number of features and options available to enhance the gaming experience. It has a superb screen and sound, and a longer battery life.
