Hello there! It’s MKBHD and I’m excited to talk about the ROG Phone 6 Pro. Let’s get right into it and dive into the specs. This phone has a massive 6.8 inch AMOLED display with a stunning 165 hertz refresh rate. Oh, and don’t forget about the second OLED screen on the back! It’s powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip, which has cores running at an impressive 3.2 gigahertz, with a whopping 18 gigabytes of RAM. You’ll never have to worry about running out of battery either with the 6,000 milliampere battery and 65 watt fast charging. Dual front-facing stereo speakers, triple cameras (including a 50 megapixel main camera), and two USB-C ports make this phone the ultimate powerhouse.
Now, you may be thinking, “Wow, this phone is designed for gamers.” And you’re not wrong! However, with the latest generations, these gaming phones have managed to balance high-performance gaming with daily usage. The ROG Phone 6 Pro is no exception. It’s like driving a Porsche 911 that is not only focused on high-performance, but also on delivering a smooth and enjoyable daily ride too.
Speaking of performance, this phone is insane. It’s the fastest phone I’ve ever used, and not just on paper, but in terms of responsiveness too. Scrolling, animations, opening apps, multitasking – it all just works like a charm, thanks to the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip and the 165 hertz display. Plus, with maxed-out specs like UFS 3.1 storage, LPDDR5 RAM, and Wi-Fi 6E, this phone can handle just about anything you throw at it.
So we know this phone is great for gaming, but how about everyday use? The display is one of the best we’ve seen on a gaming phone, with a Samsung built MLED panel that is both fast and bright. The haptics have been improved, and the under-display fingerprint reader is much faster than previous models. The triple cameras on the back are passable, but not the best. The primary camera gives decent images, but the exposure and contrast can be inconsistent. However, if you’re not too concerned about the cameras, this phone is an excellent choice for daily use.
There are a few things to keep in mind when considering this phone. Firstly, the camera layout choice is not the best, and the macro camera is practically useless. Secondly, there is no wireless charging due to the ROG vision display on the back. Finally, the sheer size of the phone may be a concern for some. However, as long as these things don’t deter you, the ROG Phone 6 Pro is a fantastic option.
