Asus ROG Phone 3 FAQ – Your Questions Answered

by birtanpublished on November 25, 2020

Hi guys this is ranjit and in this video let's do a faq video on the asus rog phone 3 and i asked you guys uh and you guys actually posted a lot of questions on twitter so i've taken them up so let's answer them now and uh the first question uh this is from apoorva he's asking is there any option to change the theme he says he simply does not like the pre-applied thing yes it's actually easy and yes by default you'll get this gaming centric theme actually while setting it up you can

Change it but yeah this is how you do it just type themes over here and you have to go to my themes and here as you can see on the my themes and you can select if you just select this this becomes like a normal what do you say android phone the uh layout and all this thing but these were the gaming themes so yeah you can easily change the themes if you want on this one uh next question is from abhishek he says uh has the quality of the camera improved from the last generation of the

Rog phone uh that is the rog phone too because camera was the weakest point last year yes definitely i would say on this rog phone three the camera has improved because the primary camera is now the sony imx 686 64 mega sensor and if you we know that is actually really good in fact watch the other video that i posted uh last week or a couple of days back where i compared the rog phone two versus the three and i compared some camera samples also and especially in

Indoor and artificial lighting i felt that the rog phone three camera has improved quite a bit compared to the rog phone too anyways let's move to the next one and this is why pusha is uh saying what's the special accessory that was in the international variant uh present the inter international variant had that aero cooler which is actually not present uh with the indian variants because of the costing the rest is the same

Uh this is by ra ranjina he's uh asking after long term usage of gaming let's say one year will the performance go down a bit or will it remain same uh the performance would be good for example uh recently i did again play around with the rog phone 2 it's running on the snapdragon 855 plus and still it is a very blazingly fast phone still will run any game you throw on it so these are very fast processors this is coming with the new snapdragon 865 plus so even after a year guys to be

Realistic it will handle anything you throw on it let's not fall into marketing traps these are very powerful processors so even after a year or you know i would say even after two years you can play the latest games or any software and do not slow down so you don't have to worry about that let's move to the next one this is by praveen uh do the rog 2 users will get the rog3 you are on the device please make a note of it uh

I did the email asus officials about this and i got to answer about this they said that yes the rog phone 2 also has a similar ui but this it won't be the exactly the same ui that we are finding on the rog phone 3 because there are some hardware changes on the rog 3 so yes so technically yes but not exactly the same that's what i got from them so let's move to the next one and this is why uh vibhan why above sorry

Uh how many major software updates will the rog phone 3 get and how much increment of a performance is compared to the normal its normal 865 plus phone uh i would say the ddr ram on this one is the ddr5 which is technically almost about 50 faster than ddr4 also if you notice the regular snapdragon 865 etc mostly clocked around 2.9 2.94 this is clocked at about 3.1 gigahertz that's why in benchmarks this one specifically the rog phone

Three with the new snapdragon 865 plus is the fastest uh it's one it's actually the fastest android phone that you can get so yes significantly faster than many of the other snapdragon 865 variants or if you compare it even with the 855 plus again watch the video that i posted earlier about rog phone 2 versus 3 where i compared the 855 plus benchmark scores with this one uh also he's asking does it have the features like long screenshot and dual apps are available yes

Actually both of them are available if you just go here search and if you search for dual apps i think should they call it a little bit different now they call it twin amps so as you can see we have that twin apps option and here you can actually enable it and use it so we do have that option and we also have the long screenshot like many android phones for example if i do this and i just press this and now it's going to take that long screenshot

As you can see this was the long screenshot so we do have those features uh let's move to the next one and this is by mr balu he's asking does this phone have slow charging feature because that's the only solution to keep this phone healthy since it has a higher refresh rate and also long lasting health of the battery for almost three years so basically you are asking does it have a inbuilt option to charge slowly the default charging is fast charging that is a 30 watt charger that

We get in the box yes we actually have that feature in fact it's implemented well let me show you let's go to the battery and here if we go to the power master option and if you go to the battery care option here as you can see we do have an option of slow charging and you can enable that and if you enable this one then you know the phone won't uh do that fast charging and do that slow charging that will help in the battery in fact there is also one more nice feature that is there in fact if you are really uh

What do you say uh want to look at the battery you can also restrict the amount of uh charge that the phone does because it has a massive six thousand milliamp battery so let's say you can set it to you should only charge it up to 80 90 or 100 so yes those battery care features etc are available out of the box on this smartphone uh let's move to the next one uh this is by helshin roy as he says as gaming phones

Mostly focus on performance he says how do you compare them with normal flagship phones with the same specs what do you feel about the ui of the rog phone through any heating regarding the ui again guys it's stock android this as i've told you is the gaming theme that's why you find this a little bit extra but within the inside uh you have the normal theme that looks like a stock android phone and it is actually almost stock you don't get

Anything extra much bloatware also on this apart from some gaming centric this x mode that you get uh where you enable it for those a triggers and all those things like this and you get this x mode but apart from that test stock android that you are all uh actually getting on this it's just the theme that you can just uh put a normal theme so again in those aspects it is actually pretty close to stock android

Uh but you do have that a triggers and all these things on this one and i'm being using it as a normal smartphone personally i would say and i'm happy with that because battery is great on the six thousand milliamp hour battery and easily let me actually show you because as you can see guys i'm using it with the dual sim that is a10 as well as jio and let me actually go here and let me show you the battery stats i didn't do gaming last two days but if i remember it's

Been more than two days since i have put it on charge and as you can see two days it says and fire since i've charged it and sot i've got this about six uh uh hours and still have about 23 battery uh 23 battery life so usually will give me about seven hours uh with some extended gaming for example continuously i was gaming with call of duty uh i played it for about one and a half hours on this one and i was heavily using the phone

Uh then also for a full day i got over about nine and a half hours of screen on time so the battery life is really good on this one and another thing that i really liked on this phone is the damn speakers and the tam speakers are so loud because they are actually front firing so you get that great sound effect let me see let me try to show it to you guys uh i don't i can't use any copyright video that's the problem so i have to use my own and my mic is here so i have to place it here

Let's just maximize it i just placed it like that because my mic is over here but the speaker is very loud so it's good for what you say general entertainment also watching videos this is one of those rare phones i would say that i don't have to keep the volume level over 70 but generally on most of the other phones even those uh that have stereo speakers also uh generally i keep the volume level at about 90 to 95

But this is so loud actually you don't have to in fact the speakers are improved slightly over the rog phone too if i do they also do get that slight bass that is called depth with this and uh so the experience is actually really good on this one anyways let's move and regarding heating guys i did not notice any heating on this phone with the regular usage of course when i was gaming continuously for about one and a half hours the back tends to get a bit warm but i think so that's how

It's designed to dissipate the heat but regular usage no heating that i no test and mostly i was actually using this phone with the 144 hertz option guys uh so in fact if you just keep it on 60 hertz i think so the battery life will improve even more anyways let's move to the next one this is about joy what's the difference between a triggers two and eight triggers uh three any pinkish tint issues uh when switching from 60 to 144 and how many units of brightness what's

The minimum screen brightness uh regarding the maximum nets of brightness guys i couldn't find that uh uh in the reviewer's guide of whatever material that asus had sent so i'll ask these questions to asus official and try to get that answer uh regarding the lowest brightness it can go pretty low but again it doesn't got very very low that's what i've noticed uh regarding the difference between a triggers two and air triggers three the biggest difference i would say is with air

Triggers three you can map two buttons for example on consoles we have l1 and l2 something like that has now been added so with the a trigger tool we just could map one here you can map two and one more thing that i noticed that was added on this one uh there is a what do you say sensation of vibration if you do just do like this uh then you can even map that to any uh something else for example on call of duty i did this gesture for reloading the gun

So these are some of the new additions that i have noticed uh anyways let's move to the next one and regarding the screen tinting i did not notice that one uh i was mostly using it with 144 hertz and i did even watch some movies etc on netflix actually it's a hdr screen so everything pops on this so i'm watching some shows here on netflix and i didn't have a problem as you can see it's dark and i'm using this mostly in the dark theme only the display is good guys it's a good

Quality amoled screen that we are getting on this one anyways let's move to the next uh this is by red fox uh he's asking will the aero active cooler be included in the indian version box no the arrow active cooler uh does not come bundled in the uh indian units you have to purchase it as a separate accessories he's asking can you use the 16 gb ram version of the rog phone 3 in india if you buy it from other countries i did ask a social official that i got an answer regarding the 16 gigabytes

They say that yes you can buy the 16 gb ram variant from internationally and yes it will work in india also but not the chinese version if you buy it from the china that version won't work in india but others will work according to them anyways uh let move to the next one this is by kunal he's saying a lot of true flagships have an issue with the display this year meet oneplus 8 pro or the motorola h plus

Display issues being reported how's the experience reading netflix and amazon any issues again i've already answered this question as you can see again dark scenes you can see this almost pitch dark uh i did watch a couple of shows on this one and i haven't noticed any display issues that were bugging me as of now and i've now used this for more than about nine days if i so i haven't noticed any issues and that movie watching experience is really good because of the very powerful

Stereo speakers uh let's move to the next oh let's get out of this this is my current uh can we play games on the rog phone 3 while charging and please share your experience regarding the battery uh yes definitely you can charge it while playing games you have the regular type c charger but again you have one more port over here you can remove this and you can charge it like this which i feel while playing the games because you play the games uh you can use this one the

Bottom one to charge it because that cable otherwise will be uh hampering your experience so yeah you can charge it but frankly speaking you don't need to charge it uh because the battery is so big that six thousand milliamp hour battery easily the one day i was trying to kill this then also i got about nine and a half hours of sot so i don't think so you need to charge this phone where the battery life has been actually very very good

Again i'll also be posting the full review of this smartphone very soon guys there i'll actually share all the screenshots that i've taken regarding the battery life that i was getting in various scenarios anyways let's move to the next one and this is by gautam he is asking how many years rog phones are supporting software and security updates oneplus is really good in this one uh again i don't know how many versions of android update this will get this comes out of

The box with android 10. yes of course this will get android 11 but i'll ask this question again to asus officials and see what is the official statement regarding how many uh versions of android update and how what is the update cycle on this one uh in fact uh in around second week of august i was trying to do a virtual interview with the asus guys from their head office in taiwan etc so i'll try to include some of these uh

Questions and try to post it uh i'll try to record that session for you guys anyways uh let's move to the next one this is by atul uh it's a gaming phone and you can't use a wired headphone for gaming do you think it's a bigger mission and it's possible to do live streaming on the gaming phone regarding live streaming i personally haven't tried it so i can't answer it right now but i will test it out and let you guys know about it regarding the first question yes on this

Rog phone too they removed the headphone jack but fortunately in the box you're still getting that usb type-c to the headphone dongle and that works i did test that and that's actually uh decent enough so at least yes not the ideal solution but that dongle is bundled in the box uh let's move to the next one this is my fahan does the rog phone three feel uh very heavy rog was already heavy for daily usage and it looks too difficult to hold in the hand because of

The big display uh guys the weight is yes it's a heavy phone let's let's just test this almost this uh similar in weight to the rog phone two let's test this how much does it weigh so about 239 grams according to my weighing scale so yeah definitely a heavy phone and yes i will uh say the first two days i felt a little bit of heft but now i've gotten used to it because of using it for the past nine days i would say if you have used

Any of the iphone 10s max series uh and if you're comfortable with that then you won't mind it but yeah certainly uh it's a heavy phone because of that six thousand milliamp hour battery dedicated stereo powerful speakers and stuff anyways let's move to the next one this is by shaheed he's asking is it true that the 12gb variant comes with aeroactive cooler in the box and when can we expect the 12gb variants to hit the indian market and i asked this question again uh to uh

I got an answer from asus officials uh by email and no they said very clearly in india even the 12 gigabyte ram variant will simply not have the aero cooler in the box and the 12 gb variant uh will this the sales will start uh later on though initially the first sale i think so might be for the eight gigabyte uh variant so yes the 12gb is coming to the indian market uh but slightly on the later date and this is by hardwick do you think a person who does game a lot will have a great time with

This device as a multimedia hub i would say yes if you're okay with the size of this phone then as a non-gaming phone also it's a very good phone and for consuming media as i've told you it's a very good phone because of the very powerful speakers that you're getting certainly one of the loudest speakers i would say out there and the general performance is also very very good because of the snapdragon 865 plus soc it's one of the fastest android phone

Out uh there and battery life because of the massive six thousand milliamp hour battery i would say yes in a way in fact i if you guys know me uh i don't do very very uh that much of gaming on smartphone yes i'm testing gaming that is call of duty on this because it's gaming centric phone but mostly i'm using this as a normal what do you say phone and it works very well in fact it has some of the features that are missing for example this phone still

Retains the though it's having an amoled screen and it also has always on display you can switch it on if you want but still retains a physical led notification light and stuff like that so yes can certainly be used as a normal what do you say android smartphone and i would say to be frank i'm using it like that anyways guys uh those were the questions that i got for the faq uh there are still some questions that i couldn't get an answer i have emailed the asus team about that when i get it i'll include it

And or maybe in the interview that i'm doing about next week something i'll ask them about that uh so again stay tuned for that and yes the full review of this smartphone is also being going to come out very very soon so again if you have some specific questions uh do uh post about them in the comment section i'll try to include those questions in the full review anyways guys that's it for now thanks for watching this is ranjeet and i hope to see you in my

Next video and guys take care and if you're not subscribed hit that subscribe button thank you
