With the launch of the ASUS ROG Phone 7 series in the Philippines, we wonder if this new flagship gaming smartphone will continue to prevail. Asus

Design and Material
Photography is not Asus’s strongest suit, most especially with the ROG Phone line. They don’t really use the latest or biggest camera sensors for smartphones. This could be for a couple of reasons — (1) they don’t want to spend too much of the sensors that will add to the total cost of materials (usually referred to as Bill of Materials) of the device and (2) a bigger camera sensor means they will need to allocate more space for it in the chassis, making their already very thick device, much thicker.
For the longest time, ASUS has packed the ROG Phone line with a massive internal battery. The ROG 7 Ultimate continues to have that — a large dual 3,000mAh battery with a combined capacity of 6,000mAh.
While that is perhaps the biggest in the market, it has not changed since the ROG Phone 2. I guess they don’t want to make the device any more thicker than it already is.
The 65W charger is enough to get it from 0% to 100% in just 42 minutes. Not the fastest around but not really bad either.
When playing games like Genshin Impact and Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, I managed to continuously play for 6 hours and 15 minutes at 50% brightness, 50% volume over WiFi.
ASUS continues to make the best gaming phone in the market, bar none.
