ASUS ROG Phone 6 Series: Which one to get?

ASUS launched the ROG Phone 6 series in July, starting off with the standard ROG Phone 6 and the ROG Phone 6 Pro. The company didn’t stop there, though, and introduced a few more models, with two limited editions. Now that we have a number of models to consider, which ROG Phone 6 should you get? Find out below.

ROG Phone 6

Rog Phone 6 6 Pro (1)

The standard ROG Phone 6 is your entry to the ROG Phone 6 lineup. It has a 6.78-inch Full HD+ (2448 x 1080) AMOLED display with 165Hz refresh rate, 720Hz touch sampling rate, and Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. It also has 50MP triple-rear cameras, a 12MP front camera, dual front-facing stereo speakers, IPX4 splash resistance, 5G connectivity, gaming triggers, and an illuminated RGB logo at the back.

Powering it is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen1 chipset with Adreno 730 GPU, up to 16GB of RAM, up to 512GB of storage, a 6,000mAh battery with 65W HyperCharge, and a GameCool6 Cooling system with AeroActive Cooler 6.

Starting at PHP 47,995 for the 12GB + 256GB, and PHP 54,995 for the 16GB + 512GB, these are the most affordable ROG Phone 6 models you can buy.

Rog Phone 6 6 Pro (2)

If you want something fancier and a little more high-end than the ROG Phone 6, you may take a look at the ROG Phone 6 Pro. It’s almost identical to the ROG Phone 6 but with a secondary ROG Vision screen at the back instead of just an illuminated ROG logo.

The chipset is the same but has 18GB of RAM, making this the ROG Phone 6 model with the highest RAM. Storage-wise, it has 512GB. This configuration costs PHP 64,995, which is a decent price point, considering that two of the models that followed are more expensive. This is a good option if you want that secondary display and the highest RAM possible in a ROG Phone.

ROG Phone 6D Ultimate

The ‘D’ in the phone’s most likely name stands for Dimensity. Yes, the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset with Mali-G710 MC10 GPU. The rest of the specs are pretty much identical to the ROG Phone 6. Performance-wise, it’s in the same league as its Snapdragon siblings and can reach 1.1M points on AnTuTu v9.

The advantage of the Ultimate, though, is in the cooling system. It has what ASUS calls the AeroActive Portal which is an air intake that routes airflow from the AeroActive Cooler 6 directly to the interior of the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate. Unlike the other ROG Phone 6 models which blow air on the surface of the back panel, the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate is air-cooled internally as well for better performance.

It’s more expensive than the ROG Phone 6 Pro, though, at PHP 69,995 for the 16GB + 512GB model. It may have a smaller RAM, but this is a good choice if you have a bigger budget and want that more aggressive cooling system.

ROG Phone 6 Batman Edition

ASUS ROG partnered with DC for the ROG Phone 6 Batman Edition. This is based on the standard ROG Phone 6 but is more expensive. However, it’s worth it if you’re a Batman fan as it comes with an exclusive bundle that includes a custom carrying case, Bat signal, Batman Aero Case, and Batarang Ejector Pin, in addition to the custom UI.

The 12GB + 256GB is priced at PHP 62,995, which is PHP 15K more expensive than the standard 12GB + 256GB ROG Phone 6. If you really like Batman, this is the phone for you.

ROG Phone 6 Diablo Immortal Edition

The most recent ROG Phone 6 model is the Diablo Immortal Edition, made in partnership with Blizzard Entertainment. Again, this is based on the ROG Phone 6 but comes with a Hellfire Red colorway with a flame-effect finish and a custom Aura RGB illuminated logo, outlined by the mobile game’s title. It also comes with a custom UI with an exclusive Diablo Immortal animated theme pack, including a live Diablo wallpaper, redesigned app icon frame, exclusive sound, and animation when the phone is charging.

The phone also comes with matching-themed accessories. The set includes a box design inspired by the Horadric Cube, a valuable in-game item that can transform anything placed inside it. The phone itself is stored in a box modeled on the legendary Worldstone. There’s also a special Shield Blessing Aero Case protective bumper case that features a geometric relief of the teleport, with a unique effect that shines when illuminated by Fahir’s Light.

If you’re a fan of the game or simply the Diablo franchise, you can get this for PHP 68,995 for the 16GB + 512GB model, which is PHP 14K more expensive than the standard ROG Phone 6 16GB + 512GB.

    Lol, much better to get the Blackshark series. These overpriced ROG phones are prone to motherboard death issues.
