Asus ROG Phone VS Razer Phone

Asus ROG Phone VS Razer Phone: The rivalry between two Gaming giants. We all knew it was only a matter of time before Asus manufactures their own gaming smartphone. Ever since Razer released the first gaming smartphone, the need to manufacture more gaming smartphone has risen exponentially. Razer and Asus are among the key players when it comes to PC gaming. And it’s good to finally see them battling it out in the smartphone world.

The gaming smartphone from Asus is called Asus ROG Phone. A smartphone that is said to beat every other gaming smartphone out there. The Razer Phone will forever be the first gaming smartphone. Although other companies will get the chance to produce even better devices, it still doesn’t mean the Razer Phone is bad or outdated to purchase. So let’s check out the Asus ROG Phone against the Razer Phone.

The Asus ROG Phone measures 8.6mm thick and weighs 200 grams while the Razer Phone measures 8mm thick and weighs 197 grams. In my opinion, one of the disadvantages the Razer Phone has in terms of design is how ordinary it looks. The Asus ROG Phone, Xiaomi Black Shark, and ZTE Nubia Red Magic all feature cool gaming design body. While the Razer Phone looks like our everyday smartphone. The fingerprint sensor is side mounted on the Razer Phone and rear mounted on the Asus ROG Phone.

The Asus ROG Phone and Razer Phone features a dual rear camera set-up at the top left. You get a front glass and aluminum unibody for the Razer Phone. While the Asus ROG Phone offers a front and rear Corning gorilla glass with aluminum frame. Sadly, there are no body color options for both smartphones. They come in only the Black body color option.

The higher resolution on the Razer Phone should help against the AMOLED panel on the Asus ROG Phone. The display of the Asus ROG Phone sports 90Hz refresh rate, 108.6% DCI-P3 color gamut, Wide Colour Gamut, and HDR display. While the display of the Razer Phone sports Wide Colour Gamut and 120Hz refresh rate.

The GameCool vapor-chamber cooling system is featured in the Asus ROG Phone. While Razer has failed to announce if the Razer Phone features a cooling system. But it’s likely the smartphone does.
