Battery life and performance definitely, camera no!


I have this phone (512gb version) and a mate 20 X. The camera situation is a mixed bag to be honest. The mate 20 X has a telephoto lense which the ROG phone doesn't so is better at zoom shots. But in daylight I would say the standard and wide angle cameras are comparable. The night shots are better on the Huawei but I have downloaded a Google camera port so night sight using that means I can get very close to the same quality on the ROG.

I find the selfie camera and video capture on the ROG phone to be better, the 4k 60 is fantastic with great stabilization.

If there's anything else you would like me to compare between the two then let me know.

Did you buy it mate? If yes how's the phone.
MrSwitch03/11/2019 08:18

Is this better than our Mate 20 X

Can't change phones for anything less!

No, that's put my mind at ease for the move. I love the mates camera, and was disappointed from some reviews of the ROG2. so this is good information to have. Cheers
Don't forget all the accessories you can get for this phone
Slightly cheaper but AliExpress

aliexpress.com/ite…MWs

£419 at the moment + a few coupons on the site to make it cheaper
if you wait until nov 11 you can get it for £399 (plus the coupons I assume)

6.5% cashback with topcashback also

Camera is a huge factor for me...plus I need 512gb...looking to get the realme2 pro this week as price is insane

I swear it's getting easier to find the perfect woman than the perfect phone now!
Band 20?

When you're used to having 7.2 inches of fun to play with, anything less is always going to be a disappointment. Even my girlfriend who thought it was too much of a handful at first can see the benefits now. Oh and the pictures we've taken, some of them are just great!

Not sure talking abt the same thing anymore...

But think I'll hold back now - seems only thing I'll be getting is 120Hz which seems a pricey expenditure for this 1 extra feature

Many near-perfect phones in my drawer, but 'she who must be obeyed' missing...

Btw if camera is huge factor for you and not videoconferencing/social media selfie-narcissism (sorry, thinking ZenFone 6), go for Mate 20x (has nano-sd card slot)

Got the 20x - was thinking of this as little bored now of it but need more improvements to justify change.

Hate the naNO prices...

... maybe you prefer cloud storage, £1.49 pm (GOne) - that's worth half a coffee

Note 9 512gb? (maybe still the ultimate phone)

Got the super better half p30 pro - impressive battery life have to say. Still prefer 20X due to landscape

Note 10 - had all of them (if I recall- effing Note 7 twice) but no extendable storage and no headphones? I'm not on Android to be treated like Apple without the customer support!

How is it for gaming?
Some of the newer games cod etc

Probably the best experience you can get on Android. It has the shoulder air triggers which you can map to control whatever part of a game you want so you have more screen to enjoy your games.

It has the fastest processor you can get on Android and the fastest screen refresh on any phone. A huge battery and it can charge via the side USB-C port so it doesn't get in the way when gaming.

Put all this together and you have an epic gaming experience.

Are you paying the import duties when buying from Aliexpress?
This phone has probably the best sounding speakers I've ever heard on a phone.

I ordered mine 1.5 weeks ago at a higher price, haven't recieved yet but I'll let you know when I do.

From what I've read on here every site is hit and miss, it's just a risk you take with import fees
I've got this but will be selling mine in a few weeks. Just have too many phones lol.
