    Re: Asus RoG unveils 6-inch overclocked gaming smartphone

    A beastly 7% overclock!!! I guess the more significant achievement is stopping the SOC from down-clocking when it gets hot.

    It looks like they've put some effort into the controllers and accessories. However, one of the main things I want to see with a new Android phone is a promise about future OS updates.

    Big battery with a cooling system to prolong it's life and prevent throttling is nice. Tie in a nice screen and this is an attractive device.

    I know there's always something around the corner but it seems mobile SOCs develop so quickly (http://hexus.net/tech/news/cpu/118742-arm-launches-laptop-class-cortex-a76-cpu/) that the chip binning seems a bit pointless.

    That's the question, how good are they at providing timely Android builds considering this is their first phone.

    I'm not good with phone specs but is the 4,000mAh battery good enough?
    I usually play 3-4 hours a day.
    I'm really digging the accessories.

    What? Asus has been producing Android phones for more than half a decade.
