In-depth ROG Phone 2 gaming test with PubG Mobile, including performance benchmarking with GameBench and AnTuTu, plus battery life drain. We also take a look at the display and audio settings, gaming features like the Air Triggers and best accessories to get the most from PubG with this brilliant Asus handset.

8.54 – Kunai gamepad

The ROG Phone 2 is my pick for the top gaming mobile of 2019, boasting plenty of power thanks to the speedy Snapdragon 855+ platform. That mighty 6000mAh battery can be charged as you game and the device stays cool using the AeroActive accessory. Although near 9 hours of life from a single charge means you’re fine to play PubG all afternoon long on the move.

Asus has thrown in plenty of customisation with the Armoury Crate and Game Genie tools, so you can tweak the ROG Phone’s settings to suit your playing preferences. And the likes of the Air Triggers, or the Kunai gamepad, will also give you a leg up for those intense PubG sessions.

Check out my full unboxing, while you can also see my accessories round-up and comparison versus the Black Shark 2 here on Tech Spurt.
