ASUS ROG Phone (ZS600KL) 6.0 inchs with 8GB RAM / 512GB Storage, (GSM ONLY, NO CDMA) Factory Unlocked International Version No-Warranty Cell Phone (Black)
This is a time where games like Fortnite and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds continue to reign supreme on all our smartphones in the category of smartphone gaming, great brands such as ASUS are betting that people will be wanting a smartphone that comes with a little more oomph in order to handle the influx. I am talking about this ASUS ROG ZS600KL.
The ROG phone is still considered as one of the most powerful smartphones available on the market right now, most of the courtesy goes to the overclocked Snapdragon 845 processor inside it.
As I mentioned “most of the courtesy”, this means that you also get to thank to some haptics that are placed very cleverly and a bright, gorgeous OLED display and that loud audio, it is just the ideal phone for any kind of gaming or even watching a movie on it.
I am still not so sure about the fact that if the world needs or wants a dedicated phone for gaming, but here the ASUS ROG Phone is one of the most compelling until now to date.
Design of this phone is definitely polarizing. You will see that it is designed from a mix of glass and metal, this great smartphone is leaning towards into the whole look that can be called “gamer phone”.
There are many people who describe this phone aggressive and over-the-top according to its design, but what I think of it is that the look of this phone is very refreshing and different.
Different in a sense that whenever you’ll have your first view at the front of ROG phone, you will get to know that it is not like the other phones. There is a pair of copper accents that breaks up the monotony of the black top and bezels at the bottom.
When it comes to design and beauty, the main attraction of this phone is the large backlit ROG logo, which places this phone in a category of any good gaming device, and I should not forget to mention that it is customizable.
Most of the gamers out there are used to programming lighting on other gaming devices such as gaming laptops, gaming mic and gaming headsets, but have you ever wondered about having the ability to program 16.8 million colors on a smartphone? Well, here you get to program all 16.8 million colors for the ROG logo on the back of this phone.
There is Asus’ Game Center preinstalled in this ROG phone that allows you to tweak CPU clock speed, fan speed and the color as well.
Whenever you are ready to start the customization, all you have to do is launch the Game Center and access the Aura Lighting option there. From there, you can choose any effect according to your needs among the available options i.e. Breathing, Strobing, Static ad Color Cycle.
Depending on your effect, you simply use the slider in order to pick the color of your choice.
In terms of performance, this ROG phone from Asus is considered as a complete beast. As it is one of the first smartphones to use a speed-binned CPU. As a gaming phone it needs to deliver on the graphics front, and let me tell you that it does this job very well.
