Here, there is no doubt in listing all the features of ROG Phone 6 Pro, You can find them in the announcement article. We want to present you what this smartphone has to offer with its SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.

A revised design

ROG Phone 6’s design has been completely revised to achieve better performance. First, the SoC is installed at the core of the device. It is flanked by two large batteries. For heat dissipation, various mechanisms are used. Asus calls it GameCool 6. Understand here that this is a large graphite plate whose purpose is to dissipate heat as efficiently as possible.

Asus tries to dissipate the heat on the huge surface of the chassis to avoid the famous hot spot that we can easily identify after a few minutes of intense activity on the smartphone. And it’s good for him because the ROG Phone 6 is very attractive.

Technically, the SoC is placed at the heart of the device along with a two-part motherboard (a PCB). Same thing for a two-part battery, but with a passive cooling system, placed around the SoC each time. In addition to better heat dissipation, this allows the hot spot to be removed from fingers resting on the device. Asus also uses a boron nitride thermal compound that conducts heat two hundred times better than pure air.

Impressive first results

In addition to launching longer games (over 30 minutes), we were able to launch various artificial benchmarks. It’s clear that the phone is getting hot, not hot.

Thanks to this design, the ROG Phone 6 Pro controls this effect “StutteringWhen the SoC lowers the CPU/GPU clock frequency. The goal here is to deliver consistent performance at full power.

Asus has also updated the AeroActive Cooler 6 if you ever want to avoid overheating. It is an active cooler in the form of an accessory with RGB LEDs, which recovers the heat emitted from the back of the smartphone and expels it using fans. These things are similar to the fans used in PCs.

We ran various tests with X-Mod. This mode is designed to not limit the performance of the smartphone. Obviously, this mode will quickly reduce the autonomy of the device. But we are here for action.

Precisely… the ROG Phone 6 Pro is impressive. From what you can get, this is the most powerful Android smartphone to date. In all synthetic benchmarks (Geekbench 5, Antutu 9, PC Mark, GFX Bench, 3D Mark, etc.), it scores better than any Android smartphone put through our hands. They even allow themselves the luxury of doing better than that iPhone 13 Pro In some tests.
