    So, so close Asus.

    The key features are there - no hole/notch/other screen blemish, SD865+, 16gb ram, 5G, dual sim...its all there.
    Then they don't include wireless charging Maybe 2021 we'll see a device that does it all, as currently everything out there is close...95% there...but they all seem to miss one key feature.

    Aside the from lack of wireless charging this is close to the perfect phone for me.

    No wireless charging, no 3.5mm audio jack, open vents for aircooling (probably fails water testing and dust testing then), and at the cost greater than that of a new gaming pc? hmm...

    The selection of games in the Play store... words fail me. F2P is just awful.

    Yeh, I look at cost to change. So, I'll see what my current contract (SIM only) is over 24 months, look at what they're offering me over the same period and look at how much it is to change. I usually put around a £400 limit on it. My last upgrade shed some contract features I wasn't using (so functionally it's identical to the last) and got an S20+ 5G for £410 extra over 24 months. There was simply no way I was going to pay the full on prices they are asking but, if you shop around for contracts, you'll not have to pay anything close.

    As good a phone as that is, the price is just crazy. You could buy a Nintendo Switch and a very good non gaming specific smartphone for less money. Also it seems daft not to have a 3.5mm audio jack on a gaming phone.
