A Real Gaming Experience

By looking at the technical specs, the Asus ROG Phone 3 will obviously be great at normal phone things like browsing the internet, calls and messaging, etc. But where it certainly proves itself to be a real beast is with its phenomenal gaming-specific design features. Talking about the design, it like the prior one still has the USB-C port mounted to the side. This means that you can easily play your video games in landscape mode while your phone is on a charge. Another happy factor with the gaming phone is that it’ll also be compatible with Google Stadia once it launches.

With the latest Asus ROG Phone 3, the company claims that it has made improvements to the ultrasonic AirTrigger pressure-sensitive touch sensors located around the edges of the smartphone. These sensors actually give you the experience of using a real controller while playing your most favorite video games.

It also added a swipe gesture to each button for a second command and an option to map an in-game command, like reloading your weapon, while you shake the phone.

In order to enjoy the best gaming experience, the Asus ROG Phone 3 also offers a lot of features that enhance your experience. It includes the X-Mode, GameGenie, AirTrigger gestures, AeroActive Cooler 3, Bypass Charging, and more.
