    Maybe someone can confirm if I have a defective kunai gamepad 3. Has anyone noticed that when you use the d-pad, the d-pad does not register in the diagonals unless you press really hard??? ... Is this normal, or do I have a defective kunai 3 gamepad???

    I just got this phone with the Kai bundle today. Fired up Genshin Impact for the first time. So far I am satisfied, although the speakers I am a little disappointed with, the bass response is indeed very good, but everything else sounds hollow almost, like overly crisp, that's just with music specifically so far, games sound amazing. My ZTE Axon 7 I think were the best when it came to dual front facing speakers. Genshin Impact runs like a charm, the phone does get a bit toasty, hitting a peak of 47°C. You will want to buy a case for it, they provide a case however it's...well it's there, I'm using it temporarily. The "Active Cooler" is hard to tell if it's actually doing anything, I tested it once and it appears to help a degree or 2, but nothing noteworthy. The Kai bundle that came with it is pretty friggin cool, the software is fairly smooth and simple, takes a second to setup keymapping the way you want it, I set it up for Genshin Impact but you can set different keymaps for different profiles(games). So far besides the speakers which are ok, I've just heard better, I am satisfied. It does have a strange thing at lower the brightness and higher the refresh rate creating harsh graining effects, really pronounced with Night Light mode on, not a huge deal, doesn't show that much, I'm willing to overlook it.

    I bought Rog 3 12 gb, 256 gb variant with my three month salary, after 3 month use i am saying this, it is the worst phone for this money. Seriously its network reception the worst at this price range, it is not even capable of competiting with samsung m30s network reception, call quality the worst, really a worst heating dispassion at this price range... I was interested to use premium phone at least once in my life time but this one really ruined my three month salary, i am really frustrated with this... Each time if i use to connect any calls or meetings in my company , i am litterly irritated worst quality, If you are a middle class guy please don't waste your money like i wasted without knowing

    You still keep mentioning the lack of 3.5mm audio jack and that Bluetooth is inferior. Get the Fiio BT5, some uncompressed audio, use an android phone with LDAC streaming and enjoy on your favourite wired headphones. I only use the 3.5mm on my Pixel 3a as a backup. Enough said!

    yeah admittedly its one of the most powerful smartphones in terms of performance and usage. But as a Rog phone 2 user how can Asus assure us that the same overheating issue from the Rog phone 1 that damages the motherboard will not be a problem on this phone. We have been posting blogs and reviews for asus to help us solve the problem but sadly they would recommend bringing it to the service center.

    I only switched to Bluetooth full time as phones aren't allowing me to not use them. I had a good pair of wired headphones and an LG V series phone. Real headphones and a real headphone amp, it may not be amazing, but at least I am not carrying around 2+ boxes just to run headphones. However, LG stopped understanding how to make phones. Every single V series since the V30/35 has been worse. In almost every single way. Thanks, LG for letting me down.

    Asus ROG phone 2 has pixelated screen issues + audio crackling when livestreaming, does the ROG3 have those issues? and before anyone says to go to a service center or use any tricks to fix those issues, i have done all imaginable things to have that fixed without any success. But i still love the ROG series, so i must ask if upgrading to the rog3 will present the same issues. Also, the ROG2 doesn't allow people to livestream on youtube using your brand account, is this fixed for rog3? i am mostly a content creator for games, so i need the best phone to do that.
