The Most Powerful Smartphone in The World

by birtanpublished on August 5, 2020

Oh man so we've been talking a lot about the idea of smartphones and specs and spec lists and if that's the whole story around a particular smartphone or smartphone launch and uh this particular device well this one takes a spec approach as

Far as just smashing everything onto the spec sheet so much so that after taking a glance at it i was thinking man that might be the

Fastest that might be the most powerful smartphone in 2020 this is the rog phone 3 and i'm telling you right now they put everything in it uh what about a little snapdragon 865 plus

The first processor to clock over three gigahertz in a smartphone 10 improvement performance improvement over the regular snapdragon 865 which is als already flagship level what about a 144 hertz

Display yeah we're gonna put that in there as well oh uh how about 16 gigs of ram and a phone oh jeez it's difficult they put 16 gigs of ram i mean you don't have to get it with 16 gigs but they're

Selling a 16 gigabyte ram version of this smartphone oh and by the way 512 gigs of storage they packed it all into here it's wild you have a 6 000

Milliamp hour battery look we're going to go over it we're going to find out i have a few of the accessories over here but it looks like it's the cases and the cooler which if you guys watched my

Previous video on rog phone and certain other gaming phones you know these things are not a gimmick they actually do work the controllers and other peripherals the dock i don't have those at the

Moment but the box looks very fancy and special rog phone three you have the cyborg futuristic look to it as you can tell i don't even it slides of course

Okay so the phone is actually over there and this is gonna be the extra things i'm gonna just we're gonna chill on that for a second this one that lifts there it's all it's very

Magical here lift the tab oh okay for those who dare there's a pre-included case over here this is a kind of exoskeleton look

Gamer aesthetic as you're aware doesn't cover up the design or the leds that are on the device you got to have some rgb on there as well so that'll get you started we've also got your paperwork and a sim tool which

Even the sim tool is aggressive imagine kirk you never saw a sim tool aggressive like that look aggressive that's like lambo style angles on that sim tool some stickers join the republic republic

Of gamers increasingly guys it's all about the mobile gaming that's people are expecting more out of their mobile devices when it comes to gaming and that's

Really what's taxing these these heavy spec sheets particularly because cooling becomes an issue and then long gaming sessions may result in in a phone kind of down clocking itself

In order to deal with increased heat and then you're having worse performance the idea here with a phone like this and the accessories they come out with is to encourage those extended gaming

Sessions not having to worry about performance so i read up a little bit on this power brick this is a 30 watt fast charger for the 6 000 milliamp hour battery that's in here

And the reason they selected 30 watts as opposed to something even faster is because it would require a far fatter phone and so they had to make a selection between either a bigger

Battery that would charge at 30 watts or a smaller battery that that could charge faster and so they went for the bigger battery which i think is a good choice in a device like this 6 000 milliamp hours

That's no joke these are some little plug looking things for your accessory ports in case you want to have them sealed off this looks like some sort of a braided

Cable i believe it's a type c type c to type c a fairly robust cable another thing you'd want to see on a smartphone targeted at being plugged in some of the time

For that really intense gaming this is a type c to mini jack connector for connecting a headset the phone over here now this this is a bit of a beast as i'm

Sure you're aware and that probably meets your expectation if you've been paying any attention to the gaming segment of smartphones powerhouse

Style smartphones this has some weight to it it's very metallic very cyborg as mentioned so the rear reveals this logo in the center the republic of

Gamer's logo and that is going to light up that's going to be rgb and we have some other distinctive characteristics this section over here depending on the

Way you bend it you get some different colored reflections it says aerodynamic system there republic of gamers written below here's your camera module up top looks

Like you have a couple of cameras on there as well as a flash all very angular in design over on the side here we have rog engraved into the device is that right it is rog and i think

Those are also your shoulder buttons these are going to be capacitive shoulder buttons air triggers are what they call them and those are a differentiating characteristic of a

Gaming phone you can map those to any spot in your game and get a way comfier grip over long periods of time and these triggers on this device they actually added functionality you

Can split them in half so you can actually have one button over here and one button over here on each side so you can get even more functionality you can swipe on them now it's a lot of stuff going on now another

Unique feature is the ability to plug in your peripherals your cables and your other attachments on the side of the device as opposed to just on the bottom now that's a key because obviously

You know when you're playing a game you're in landscape mode for the most part and you could have the cable interfering with your grip but also there's various docks that uh they're gonna put out as accessories

To this device that you may want to dock into and so you have just the versatility of that port on the other side oh look at that qualcomm logo elite gaming so qualcomm saying

Hey this is our top tier uh processor this is our 865 plus i think this is the first place it's actually been we got a unique welcome graphic as well this is not your stock android

Situation so for unlocking the phone we have some options here for face recognition as well as in display fingerprint oh so you can use the air triggers for a

Squeeze function as well and here you can see it's set to somewhere in the middle and then that gives you an idea of how hard you have to squeeze to trigger that a couple of different system styles

For you to choose from this is the zen ui that comes on a variety of their devices the default mode is an rog specific more aggressive gaming mode i think that's what most people are going to

Choose if you purchase a device like this rog elite desperately needs you to join the resistance mission immediately all right so the device is booted up and oh my goodness gracious

This uh 144 refresh and it looks like the animation oh my god that's fast that is silky smooth my goodness that is fast so the touch latency is now down to a record low

25 milliseconds with a 270 hertz touch sampling rate so you have a couple of different refresh rates to keep in mind there's the 144 hertz plus the 270 hertz on the touch input all you need to really know is this

Means you're going to have a very fluid experience and for the touch input your touch is going to be registered rapidly and fluidly so you can see there's a bit of a skin on here they've also got a dedicated gaming

Section called the armory crate and this is where your games are going to live this is also where you're going to be able to see the performance of your device the temperature the system frequency the gpu

Cpu how much memory you're using and this thing obviously as i mentioned 16 gigs of ram so you can keep a lot of things loaded in the background you just have a bigger

Ramp buffer there obviously now one thing you'll probably notice about the device immediately is the fact that it's not attempting to be one of these aggressive screen to body ratio phones

You'll notice it's just i mean you have a forehead and chin and that may remind you of a smartphone a kind of antiquated look to it a smartphone with an antiquated look but they

I went out of their way in a press document to suggest that this was thought through and they decided instead that the front-facing speakers and the speaker performance and the overall scale of the battery was

More important than stretching the display as far as possible to each edge so you have two front-facing speakers left and right which are going to be difficult to block with your hands

When you're in a gaming orientation and you also have a front-facing camera which the same thing they put it up above where your thumb would rest so again we're having to rethink

Which designs make the most sense given the way that the phone is targeted and who it's targeted at if it's for gaming then yeah these things make sense you want good sound

And also you want a place to grip onto it so you can kind of understand it things that are happening in the world in the world of technology so i can't see my hands don't cover the audio that's loud on video it's actually a

Live stream with the new playstation 5 controller courtesy of jeff keely and he was given the opportunity uh not only to have that is loud and i believe there's

Actually even greater ability to control your audio performance within the settings if i'm not mistaken so there's this thing baked in called audio wizard which will enhance the performance of

Audio depending on the circumstance and what you're doing on your device so they're saying for gaming for example to boost the sound of footsteps for music for a more immersive

Experience and then of course just the ability to personalize the and configure the sound not all manufacturers give you this ability or encourage you to do this but they've

Baked it in here you can see it's currently on the normal setting and it's in game mode but if i wanted to go in here and tweak this and just you know boost up the treble or the bass to suit my criteria i could do

That so i'm just downloading an update on this device it's a good moment to look over at some of these accessories so this is the lighting armor case so i guess this one

Lights up a little bit it also looks sort of like a shell style case similar to the other one but a little bit more robust and this this is one of those ones that

Pushes light through these little dots on the back of course it leaves room for all of your various cutouts that are necessary they detected the case applying the

Theme you pick it up kirk yeah so you're getting your typical rgb cycle through there but even without the case you get that just it's going to be this kind of smaller

Logo that's built into the phone this case just appears to synchronize what's happening there with the exterior so that's kind of cool neon arrow case that's this one here this chic case offers protection against

Bumps and shock damage i think it's going to be a lot like the case that was included in the package just in a neon color and that is quite the look kirk i feel like you could pull

This look you could pull that look off right i like it i like it you're at the family event and you pull this out if you're like yeah that's kirk right there

He's still doing it i would he's a guy that's still doing it so that's a that's the most that is so neon looking holy pop we don't see this type of transparent plastic as often anymore but anyway there's a couple of different

Options now they've also included an antibacterial glass screen protector that's a big deal right now so that's there as well and then the most interesting of the accessories

That i received is this one which is the cooler and like i mentioned previously i've tested these things with an actual thermometer and they do work they effectively cool down your smartphone actively with

By pulling heat away from where the chip lives underneath the rear surface and then dissipating it and this plugs into that bottom port that i mentioned previously

So this is going to attach into the port like that and then down like this when equipped with a fan a name in an and enabling x mode do you wish to always apply level 3 performance to achieve the ultimate

Gaming experience yes of course i do all right so now we have republic of gamers rgb down here as well and we have the fan running which i can feel the cool air pumping out and what's cool

About this attachment is that it offers up pass-throughs on the bottom for a dedicated wired headset as well as a type c connector to keep power flowing through the whole thing including this accessory and then the

New thing as well is this little kickstand that's on here that opens up like this and allows you to get a nice little stand to your device whether you're just watching content or

Gaming because now you can back off a little bit with an actual controller if you want to attach a controller for a more even more tactile feel it's just about versatility and different options for how you want to

Interact with it maybe you just want to let it cool down a little bit maybe you want to eat your cereal you know it's completely up to you whatever okay what kind of cereal are

You eating oh man you know i jump around a lot i recently got back into a classic and believe it or not uh just regular cheerios honey no no regular yellow box cheerios

Very psycho yeah recently got vacated it's not a ton of flavor but there's a nostalgic thing to it so all right so to showcase what this thing is capable of i've loaded up a game called bullet force

Because that game is capable of 144 fps to take advantage of the 144 hertz you have to look for titles that support that and as far as the air triggers are concerned you just pull over here grab the triggers and align them up with

Different sections within the game where they'd be convenient to have so down the sights is on my left trigger and to actually activate the trigger itself in the graphical overlay you have the

Right shoulder button if i push the right shoulder boom left shoulder down the sides right shoulder oh there we go he's dead you're dead and holy moly the

Sound is quite immersive here oh got him got him it's a comeback five three that's three in a row that doesn't even seem right

I had it i had the eyes on them as well i had the eyes on them i put the eyes first okay i gotta get out of here uh look what can i say i mean this is it's fun stuff guys it's a good time

It's a good time and it's fun stuff and it's it's gaming it's gaming centric it's a beast it's an it's obvious what it's for you just have to take one glance at it and you know what you're working with if

You're in the market for the most powerful thing that's out there in smartphone land i don't think you can beat this right now quick recap here on spec 16 gigs of ram a snapdragon 865 plus with a 10

Performance improvement over the regular 865 including in the graphics department a 6 000 milliamp hour battery because that's what you would want on a high powered gaming phone a display

That's capable of 144 hertz making it one of two that i'm aware of that can come up to that speed and then you pair that with the 270 hertz

Input and it's like well it's obvious that you're dealing with if not the most powerful definitely one of the most powerful smartphones that you can buy in 2020 you know who it's for it's got the

Gaming centric design the rgb stuff and a wild variety of accessories that you can add to it to enhance the gaming experience even further i think this is probably the most

Popular of the add-ons it really does work and it's quite portable but they take it a step further with all the controllers and contraptions so even guys like me

Can get those kills in the first person shooter oh he missed me too
