Still not worth it. No aftermarket support, non expandable storage, no storage safety (if you mention a cloud service you're an idiot), cheap materials used (not counting the screen, but using glass for the back just feels as cheap as recycled water bottle plastic). Get with the times, one can get a cheaper phone for calls and photos and an Odin 2 for android gaming or better yet, the Deck.
BTW, both of the mentioned handhelds have two expandable storage slots, one of which is PC.
Even so, these Asus people need to get more serious with their users, increase the update policies and fully comply with them!! Now that they removed the Zenphone line and left only the Rog, YOU CAN ALLOCATE MORE RESOURCES FOR SUPPORT
Dear Asus, you know your ROG (and Zenfone) phones are great, really.
So how about you give us 3 or maybe even 4 OS updates this time? When you ask (starting price) 999 euro (ROG 7) or 799 euro (Zenfone 10) for your phones.
I expect more support too.
*glares at Sony for being even more expensive and giving also just 2 OS updates*
I don't expect same lenght like Apple or Google, but jeez 2 OS upgrades is just too little for such expensive device.
I don’t think it’s worth to spend 700 800 dollars on an android phone for gaming when you can literally buy a ROG ally for the same price and get way better performance and game selection
