Review Asus ROG Phone 3 ZS661KS – ASUS ROG Phone 3 arrived by relying on Snapdragon 865 Plus as hardware as mentioned. This is a new flagship chipset from Qualcomm successor to Snapdragon 865 which has a clock speed of up to 3.1GHz and an increase in GPU performance 10 percent better.
To help Snapdragon 865 Plus work more optimally, ROG Phone 3 has pinned RAM up to 16GB like Lenovo Legion and also 512GB of internal storage. This mobile memory uses LPDDR5 and UFS 3.1 types that promise faster read and write.
ROG Phone 3 is actually not alone, because ASUS also released a version of the Strix Edition which is powered by Snapdragon 865 with 8GB of RAM paired with storage options between 128GB or 256GB.
The screen itself measures 6.59 inches using an AMOLED panel that offers Full HD Plus resolution along with HDR10 + support and also has a refresh rate of 144Hz for a smoother gaming and viewing experience.
The ASUS ROG Phone 3 also has a 270Hz touch sampling rate with only 25ms touch latency which is the lowest among all smartphones currently on the market. If you don’t like it, you can use the adjustable ultrasonic shoulder button.
Last year the ASUS ROG Phone 2 had dual cameras, now its successors have added one camera to a total of three cameras to pamper those photography lovers who are mounted on the back.
The three cameras consist of a Sony IMX686 64 megapixel main camera with 2x lossless “digital zoom” support but can only be activated at a 16 megapixel resolution which is accompanied by a 13 megapixel ultrawide angle camera.
The third camera is a 5 megapixel macro lens for taking close-up photos and don’t miss the LED flash as a complement. In addition, ASUS has also equipped the camera on this new smartphone with a variety of photographic features such as HyperSteady Video mode.
It also includes Wind Filter and 4K video recording support at 120fps or 8K at 30fps. Whereas for taking selfies or video calls, there is a 24 megapixel camera facing forward.
