ROG Phone 2 Durability Test! – Most Powerful Smartphone?

the asus rog phone 2 is probably the most powerful and feature-rich smartphone that money can buy in 2019 it's technically a gaming smartphone ro G stands for Republic of gamers and asu's has been using this brand to deliver some pretty innovative stuff today we're gonna find out if it's durable let's get started one of my favorite things about gaming smartphones is that they are typically a little less conservative design wise and let them self fine literally with built-in LED lighting I'll turn the back LED logo on in just a second the ROG 2 has a metal and glass back combo design and has the same copper vent that we saw in last year's ROG 1 it looks pretty phenomenal with it's multicolored subtle holographic reflective accent lines that run throughout the dark silver let's start with the scratch test the ROG 2 has a large 6.6 inch 1080p screen and it's using the latest version of Gorilla Glass Gorilla Glass 6 which means that we shouldn't see any scratches at level 2 like we saw on the plastic inner screen of the Galaxy fold the ROG to scratches at level 6 with deeper grooves at a level 7 up here at the top of the phone we find a singular 24 megapixel front facing camera tucked into the black bezel the bezels are slightly larger on this beast due to the internal front firing stereo speakers they also double as a place to grip the phone while gaming in landscape mode last year's phone had orangish colored plastic stuff covering the grille and this year they've made it a bit more clean and got rid of the orange which I'm a fan of the same thing goes for the secondary front-facing stereo speaker grille down at the bottom of the phone it wouldn't be a durability test without finding out what the phone is made from the ROG phone has an anodized aluminum body there is a SIM card tray down here that's a dual SIM but no SD card slot even though there is a one terabyte upgrade option for the internal memory which is impressive it still doesn't beat the inexpensiveness and easiness of just adding an SD card down the road there's not a rubber ring around the SD card for it which we haven't seen in a long time moving up to the side of the phone it contains a rubber plug this keeps the accessory ports and secondary charging port clean when it's not being used the rog 2 has two USB C charging ports this side port can also output 4k video tweet TV or computer monitor and can connect to the external fan cooling units or other accessories it's pretty cool to have options even if there is no advertised water resistance the top of the phone has more anodized black metal and the right side of the phone has the capacitive touch pad triggers money the rent just like we would see on a gaming controller it also has a metal volume rocker and metal power button and those capacitive corner triggers shouldn't affect our building but we'll find out with the bin test in just a minute finally here at the bottom of the phone we get the USB C port and we see our little buddy the headphone jack I haven't seen one of these in a while a lot of flagship and mid-range phone manufacturers have been dropping the headphone jack so they can push their own brand of wireless headphones that usually cost well over a hundred and fifty or two hundred dollars it's important to remember that there are a lot of good wireless headphones out there that cost a whole lot less which brings us to Raycom huge thanks to Ray Con for sponsoring this video ray cons totally wireless headphones are half the price about a premium wireless earbuds and sound just as good if anything these are louder and have more base than any other headphone I've tested recently and I've tried out quite a few different headphones I mostly use my headphones at the gym or while running and these are small enough and light enough that I never feel like they're falling out they have six hours of play time with an additional 24 hours of juice stored in the carrying case you can get 15% off and check out the additional colors with the link in the description there's definitely no reason to pay big bucks to buy headphones that are the same brand as your cell phone especially when there are cheaper and better options like these ray cons well you decide for yourself though they have free shipping and free returns and thanks to Ray Con for sponsoring this video getting back to the back of the ROG 2 the main portion of the phone is covered with that great glass the vibrant accent lines and hard camera angles helped make this phone look pretty unique it's got a 48 megapixel main camera with a 13 megapixel ultra-wide camera on the side and there are also two different colored LEDs for the flash when both colors of the LEDs flash at the same time it helps not to wash out the image as much but the thing that makes this phone physically stand out the most is the metal growth a su says the upper copper portion has a vent that lets the heat escape out from inside the phone which is kind of true we found out last year that the metal shell was mostly for aesthetics and the copper coloring was also mostly just for looks nothing was really wicking heat away from the processor there passive bins underneath the metal of course but no internal fans and the actual heat pipe the part that does keep the phone cooled most is on the screen side not the back panel so we'll see if that's the case when we tear down this guy's well they did include a clear case in the normal retail box which is nice it still leaves a little gap for the copper cooling to show through let's get these LEDs turned on now it might look like this RGB ROG logo isn't very luminous here on my desk but that's only because my desk lights are super bright we can see the changing colors when they're shadowed but in a normal room this would be pretty easy to see I'm definitely not opposed to making it even brighter though ROG is probably still using that little side lit deflection thing we saw in last year's phone we'll have to check it out from the inside of course but the point is the 6,000 milliamp hour battery can probably handle a few extra LEDs inside and it would be pretty cool to see some more major lights just like we would see in a gaming PC either way this thing looks pretty cool these six thousand milliamp hour battery is probably one of the best things about this phone alongside the 120 Hertz 1080p OLED panel for reference most phones and monitors these days refresh at 60 Hertz so having a phone that can display these movies game scrolling and images twice as fast as usual and is pretty interesting it does last about 30 seconds under the flame from my lighter which is also cool or hot depending on how you look at it the screen definitely did not recover though so don't do this at home I almost forgot about the under screen fingerprint scanner it's easy to tell that the ROG 2 is using an optical scanner one because the whole display brightens to max when it's trying to sense my finger and more importantly it has the green circle of light where my finger is touching the sensor underneath the display uses that green light to illuminate the ridges on my fingerprint and then reads my fingerprint through those LEDs it's pretty cool the under screen fingerprint technology wouldn't be possible on an LCD due to all those layers we saw in my last video just oh let's the good news is is that even with these level 7 deeper grooves marring up the surface of the glass the fingerprint reader can still sense my finger and unlocks the phone every time finally the bend test this thing is massively thick and heavy which by default helps the rigidity of the phone but even with that thickness and weight we still get a flex near the side charging port I guess having a hole in the frame weakens it a bit and allows it to flex but there are no permanent kings or cracks in the metal even when bent from the front side the ROG – is still a solid beast of the phone and quite possibly one of the most feature-rich smartphones money can buy in 2019 it passes my durability test I'll toss a link for the current pricing of the ROG – down in the description below next to the rake on headphones link remember you can get 15% off to be honest I got this phone mostly so I could check out the insides hit that subscribe button if you're into that kind of thing and coming out with me on Instagram and Twitter would you ever buy a gaming phone or maybe better question do you gain very much on your current phone let me know down in the comments thanks stuff for watching I'll see you around

Asus ROG Phone 2 Teardown! – Is the rear vent Fake?

today we're taking apart the ROG phone to probably one of the most feature-rich smart phones of 2019 we're gonna look underneath that crazy metal protrusion on the back panel and see if it actually does anything besides just look cool and we'll see how the glowy LED lights on the back panel work should be pretty interesting this video is sponsored by Toro let's get started so last year when I took apart the ROG won this metal contraption felt more like decoration than anything else this year my razor blade can slide underneath the growth so we know that it's not a built-in part of the frame but it's also still connected underneath the back glass so I'll have to break out my trusted heat gun to remove the glass before getting to the metal chunk the adhesive holding down the rear glass panel with its colorful accent lines and can be warmed up and cut away with my suction cup and razor blade working my way around the hard angles of the metal vent is fairly complicated glued shut phones are never the easiest to take apart finally though with enough heat and persuasion we can rotate the back cover off revealing an absolutely massive internal battery and a self lit LED reflective back panel the lights inside the ROG 2 aren't deflected from separate LEDs the LEDs are actually built into the reflector itself much better design than last year's ROG one that had the LEDs off to the side shooting into a white piece of plastic this new method is much more efficient and more secure and since it has its own cold contact pads these can basically be added anywhere inside the back panel on future foams and can just shine through wherever the glass is clear so let's cross our fingers for even more lights in the future it's nice to see that the RGB lighting on gaming smartphones is improving a soos is really shaking things up speaking of brands that are shaking things up huge thanks to Toro for sponsoring this video Toro is a car sharing service that has vehicles in more than 5,000 cities across the u.s.

vehicle to make some extra cash I'll leave the link in the description if you want to learn more and get that $15 off and thanks the turo for sponsoring this video to get deeper inside the ROG phone – we got to remove the ink screws holding on the bottom plastics and the five screws holding down the top plastics you would think at this point when those screws are off that the back panel could come away from the phone but MIT turns out there are two more screws hidden underneath the metal vent and since the glass is now off I can slice underneath that metal vent and remove it from the frame this guy is its own little unit stuck to the phone with adhesive and it is hollow inside the underside of the hump is made from plastic with only a very thin outer metal shell about as thick as a pop cam the metal hump itself definitely does not provide any active thermal cooling the tiny copper grille however does have a direct opening to inside the phone which from a water resistance perspective is a nightmare but once again there is no direct contact with anything on the motherboard the tiny vent just allows passive heat dissipation for any heat that happens to radiate through the air off the motherboard itself let's just say this thing looks more impressive from the outside than the inside at least this time around we'll see if there's any more copper cooling on the underside of the motherboard in just a second let's go deeper the massive battery is plugged into the center of the motherboard all unsnap that like a little Lego and then I'll make my way down to the three small ribbon cables at the bottom of the motherboard this phone does not have any wireless charging or water resistance which might be deal-breakers to some but it does have a headphone jack which are getting pretty rare these days this tiny little daughter board also comes soldered together with the lower vibration motor there are two vibrators in this phone we'll find the other one in just a second I'll remove the dual SIM card tray and then lucky for us a juice is added a magical pull tab underneath the battery it's a narrow little guy and eerily silent compared to Apple's pull tab but it gets the job done in a safe manner and doesn't bring there is a bit of gentle adhesive on the far side of the battery but nothing that's super dangerous this is a six thousand milliamp power left the in polymer battery pack which is the largest we've seen inside of a cell phone all year and check out what's underneath the battery a solid wall of copper now we're talking this is where the real cooling happens this is an under screened vapor chamber we've run into a few of these in the past we'll have to pull it out to see how big it really is in just a second first I'll remove the rubber plug out of the side dual USBC accessory and display ports and unclip the dual rear facing camera and pull it away from the phone it's got a 48 megapixel main sensor on the left and a 13 megapixel wide-angle camera on the right neither of which are advertising optical image stabilization the front 24 megapixel camera also does not have oh is but does come with a gray rubber ring around the lens kind of random I can finally pull the motherboard now from inside the phone frame it's got a long thin design that basically wraps around the whole phone the design of the ROG 2 seems like things were added kind of at random it's not quite as organized as other flagships we've been inside it does have thermal paste between the processor and the massive internal heatsink little copper square that touches the processor is located up near the top small circle vibrator I imagine there are two vibrators inside to give better haptic feedback on either side of the phone wall gaming just like we would see inside of a normal video game controller the top and bottom stereo speakers are also a bit different the top speaker is much smaller and the bottom speaker doesn't appear to have any balls inside like we saw inside the galaxy full the under screen fingerprint scanner is also down here at the bottom of the phone near the loudspeaker it's a little camera that shines up through the thin AMOLED screen to read your fingerprint now normally we do try to keep these phones in working condition I like putting them back together but this particular design puts the copper vapor chamber between the frame of the phone and the screen because that AMOLED panel is so thin the ROG 2 uses that to its advantage to allow heat to escape out the front of the phone which is pretty smart except that the only way for us to see it is by removing the screen and removing the screen breaks the screen screen removals are usually only performed when the screen is already broken the ROG phone 2 has a large 6.6 inch 1080p display but the thing that makes it special is the 120 Hertz refresh rate it shows images twice as fast as normal phones do and yeah cracking a 120 Hertz displayed hurts me a little bit on the inside but at least now we get to see what we came here for look at the size of this copper layer we might have a new vapor chamber world champ right here this looks larger than even the razor phone to vapor chamber normally vapor chambers have you know vapor inside the vapor wings along the little copper capillaries to keep things cool and usually this paper is visible when we slice it open at least for a second but in my particular ROG phone – no vapor is visible inside it's bone-dry in here but even without liquid it's still a substantially large heat sink and copper does a good job of dissipating heat all on its own I think it was definitely worth taking off the screen even if the phone didn't quite survive on paper the ROG phone – is one of the best phones of 2019 with its impressive screen and large battery but with that open rear ventilation system that's more for looks than anything else it's also very much the least water-resistant phone we've seen in a very long time would that major lack of water resistance and a phone this powerful make you nervous let me know down in the comments don't forget to check out Turo next time you need to borrow a car you can use that rig 15 code to get $15 off come hang out with me on Instagram and Twitter and thanks ton for watching I'll see you around
