  • - What's up guys, Saf here on SuperSaf TV,
  • and we've got a very special unboxing
  • for you guys today.
  • This here, of course, is the Asus ROG Phone II.
  • A phone designed from the ground up, for gamers.
  • I was very impressed with the ROG Phone I last year,
  • which had a few world firsts,
  • and the ROG Phone II also has a few world firsts.
  • Let's go ahead and check it out.
  • And the first thing I have to say is this box
  • is super, super cool.
  • It's quite similar to what we had
  • on the ROG Phone I, but it's got
  • a very unique and futuristic design.
  • And the way you actually open this is,
  • look at that.
  • It's like one of those capsules.
  • That is so cool.
  • I love it when manufacturers kind of
  • pay attention to details like this.
  • So we've got a section here.
  • We've got the phone in here,
  • which I'm not sure how to take out.
  • Kinda don't want to rip the box,
  • because it's really nice.
  • Eventually managed to do it,
  • although I did rip the box a little bit.
  • Right, let's put this on the side
  • and see what else we get inside the box.
  • And here is everything that we get
  • inside the box.
  • There is a SIM card ejector tool,
  • we've got a case,
  • we've got a 30-watt fast charger,
  • which supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0.
  • A braided USB Type C to USB Type C cable.
  • There is the AeroActive cooler version two,
  • and we have
  • a few other bits
  • which I'm not sure what they are.
  • There's two rubber tips here,
  • and there's also,
  • I actually don't know what this is, I'm sorry.
  • Right, now let's get the phone
  • out of the plastic.
  • (plastic rustling)
  • And here it is, in its full glory.
  • The design is quite similar to the ROG Phone I,
  • but that was really unique as it is,
  • so I'm sure a lot of people won't mind that.
  • Now let's look at one of the main
  • highlight features of the ROG Phone II,
  • and that is the world's first 120 Hz
  • AMOLED display.
  • The ROG Phone I was the world's first
  • with a 90 Hz AMOLED display,
  • and we've had the OnePlus 7 Pro,
  • which also has a 90 Hz AMOLED display.
  • This year, we've seen other LCD displays
  • with 120 Hz, but this is the first
  • 120 Hz AMOLED display,
  • and that is absolutely awesome.
  • This is so so smooth,
  • and I'm a big fan of AMOLED displays.
  • AMOLED displays, they have much better
  • colors compared to LCD, as well as
  • better viewing angles, and so so smooth.
  • I absolutely love this.
  • Not only that, you do have
  • a one millisecond response time,
  • and 240 Hz touch input,
  • so this is gonna be so so important for gamers.
  • The size of the display is 6.6 inches.
  • It's 10 bit HDR, Delta-E under one color accuracy,
  • and 49 milliseconds touch latency.
  • This is an absolutely dope display,
  • and I know a few of you guys
  • are gonna be talking about bezels,
  • 'cause we do have small bezels on the top and bottom,
  • but there's some good reasoning behind this.
  • That is firstly because we've got
  • dual front-firing stereo speakers,
  • with DTS:X Ultra, and also because this
  • device is mostly gonna be used
  • in landscape mode, when you're gaming.
  • It's to reduce some accidental touches
  • towards the sides.
  • Now, the resolution is full HD plus,
  • not quad HD plus, I'm assuming they
  • didn't go for the higher resolution
  • to achieve the 120 Hz on AMOLED.
  • Personally speaking, I'm happy
  • to compromise with the full HD plus resolution
  • and these bezels for that 120 Hz OLED
  • as well as the front-firing speakers.
  • Right, so that's the display,
  • now what's powering the ROG Phone II?
  • Well, in here we have the
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset,
  • and I believe this is the first new announced
  • phone with this chipset,
  • and that's a 2.96 Ghz high-frequency CPU,
  • and it's also got a overclocked Adreno 640 GPU.
  • Now apparently, that can boost performance
  • up to 15% above spec.
  • Not only that, you've got UFS 3.0 storage,
  • and you've got 500 gigabytes of UFS 3.0 storage,
  • so that's gonna be super fast storage.
  • We've also got this on the OnePlus 7 Pro,
  • and I can tell you from experience,
  • that does definitely have an impact on speed,
  • and for RAM you've got 12 GB of LPDDR4X RAM.
  • And with all of these specifications,
  • I truly expect this to be
  • an absolute beast for gaming.
  • I assume it's gonna be one of
  • the fastest out there.
  • Now of course, with all of that performance power,
  • you are gonna be getting a lot of heat,
  • and for that Asus have the GameCool II
  • vapor-chamber cooling system.
  • And that can handle around 7.5 watts of heat.
  • Now I'm sure my buddy Zack,
  • from JerryRigEverything, is gonna
  • open this up so you can see
  • all of the beautiful internals,
  • and how all of this works,
  • but I gotta say that's super super impressive.
  • As well as that, you do of course
  • get the AeroActive cooler too, out of the box.
  • This has a built-in fan,
  • and that's gonna help towards cooling as well.
  • Now, another thing that Asus
  • has been really keen on is
  • providing tons of battery life for gamers,
  • and the ROG Phone II has a massive,
  • wait for it, 6,000 mAh battery,
  • so that is the biggest battery
  • on any phone that I've tested.
  • So you're gonna be getting plenty
  • of gaming time on here, with this battery,
  • and of course you do get that 30 watt charger,
  • with Asus' HyperCharge technology.
  • Now, although it's a 30 watt charger,
  • 25 watts will be used to charge the phone,
  • and the other five watts will be used
  • to charge any peripherals
  • that you have attached on to this.
  • Now, let's take a look at the overall design.
  • As mentioned, this does look quite similar
  • to what we had on the ROG Phone I,
  • and we've got Gorilla Glass 6
  • on both the front and back.
  • The back glass is curved,
  • to make this more comfortable to hold.
  • We have the illuminated ROG logo,
  • which you can customize.
  • This definitely does look really really dope.
  • For the cameras we've got pretty much
  • the same cameras as we've got on the ZenFone 6,
  • so that's a 48-megapixel primary camera,
  • with a f/1.79 aperture,
  • as well as a 13-megapixel ultrawide camera,
  • with a 125-degree angle of view,
  • and that has a f/2.4 aperture.
  • Front-facing camera, however, is 24 megapixels,
  • with an f/2.2 aperture,
  • and this year we also have
  • the fingerprint scanner within the display,
  • and it does work really well.
  • Super super fast.
  • Last year, we did have it at the back.
  • Now on the top, we don't have anything,
  • apart from a secondary mic.
  • On the right-hand side, we have a power button
  • as well as a volume rocker.
  • And then we have the air triggers.
  • Now, these are basically touch buttons,
  • which you can customize to tap within the display.
  • So for instance, if you're in a game,
  • and there's a particular button here
  • on the right-hand corner,
  • instead of having to reach over to press that,
  • you can have a shortcut here,
  • and that's gonna help with that gaming experience.
  • I think this is such a clever idea.
  • Now at the bottom, we do have a 3.5mm jack,
  • and this does come with DTS headphone X sound.
  • And then we've got a USB Type C input.
  • Now what's interesting is that if you go here,
  • on to the left-hand side,
  • we've got this rubber tip.
  • Oh, okay, so that's what the things,
  • initially when I looked at the box,
  • that's what this was.
  • We've got a cover for two USB Type C ports here.
  • Now this is something that we initially saw
  • introduced on the ROG Phone I,
  • and I think this is such a clever, clever design,
  • because if you want to charge your phone,
  • but you still wanna game in landscape mode,
  • which is what this phone is intended
  • to be used as,
  • then you can plug in a cable,
  • and that's not gonna interfere
  • with your gaming experience.
  • And, if you do want to add some accessories,
  • like the AeroActive cooler,
  • which we'll put on right here,
  • not only is it gonna draw power from the phone,
  • so we've got, you can see the light-up
  • Republic Of Gamers logo,
  • as well as the ROG logo here at the back,
  • and the fan, not sure if you
  • can hear that on the mic.
  • It's quite silent, but on top of that,
  • the AeroActive cooler has a USB Type C input,
  • as well as a 3.5mm jack, which is so cool,
  • so you can be plugged in,
  • and it's not gonna really affect
  • your gaming experience as it would do
  • on many of the devices where those wires
  • would come in the way.
  • Such a cool, cool design, I gotta say.
  • For software, you've got Android Pi,
  • with the ROG UI.
  • Now something that I really like,
  • that Asus has done this year,
  • is that they've toned down their skin heavily,
  • so you're looking at something that's
  • very close to stock Android,
  • but with additions that are actually useful
  • and specific for this phone.
  • So for example, you've got
  • a built-in screen recorder.
  • You've got X mode, which is gonna
  • enhance your gaming performance,
  • and mute notifications and things like that,
  • and then you also have the Armoury Crate,
  • which has quite a cool intro.
  • And this is gonna let you see all of
  • your CPU performance, temperature,
  • and it's gonna let you customize
  • lighting and things like that.
  • So, super super cool features
  • that are really useful, rather than
  • just there for the hell of it.
  • Now there's a few additional features
  • that Asus have also included in the ROG Phone II,
  • such as multi-antenna Wi-Fi,
  • so you've got great Wi-Fi connectivity,
  • regardless of how you're using the phone,
  • in landscape or portrait.
  • Quad-mic noise-canceling array.
  • Dual haptic accelerators for 3D feedback.
  • And to put that into perspective,
  • the vibrator on the ROG Phone II
  • is six times faster, and three times more powerful,
  • compared to something like the OnePlus 7 Pro.
  • And that is the ROG Phone II.
  • In terms of pricing and availability,
  • I've not been given any details as yet.
  • As soon as I do have that information,
  • I'll put that as a pinned comment,
  • so do look out for that.
  • And there are lots of other accessories as well,
  • available for the ROG Phone II,
  • such as gaming controllers,
  • as well as a dock, if you want to
  • connect this to a display.
  • Those are things that I've not had a chance
  • to check out as yet.
  • I'm super impressed with the ROG Phone II,
  • I love that this has been built
  • from the ground up for gamers,
  • and I love all of the considerations,
  • such as the side USB port,
  • and the air triggers,
  • and the 120 Hz display.
  • All of these things that have gone in,
  • to really make this a device for gamers.
  • Are you a gamer?
  • Are you impressed with this device?
  • Definitely let me know in the comments below.
  • Also let me know if there's any further
  • coverage you'd like me to do
  • with the ROG Phone II.
  • And if you wanna be one of the first
  • to see all of that new, fresh, juicy content,
  • then be sure to subscribe.
  • And hit that bell icon. (bell ringing)
  • So you don't miss anything.
  • I hope you enjoyed this video,
  • and found it useful.
  • If you did, you know what to do.
  • Smash that like button for me.
  • Thanks for watching, this is Saf,
  • on SuperSaf TV, and I'll see you next time.
  • (electronic music)
  • Phone, and the other five watts
  • is gonna be reserved for any
  • pereperals, periperals, periperals,
  • I can't say that word.
