              I always find it really funny when Linus acts like he's ancient. He's ~33 right? Everyone I know that "games" is close enough or even ABOVE his age range. I've played ARK with people in their mid 40s.

              MC definitely has users of absolutely all ages. Linus is just out of touch hahah, he's not "old" and he's RIGHT in line for growing up gaming his entire life.

                    This phone is a gaming phone.. so dont expect features from an ordinary phone. If your not a hard gamer dude, dont buy it.

                              Guys I know that the first Asus rog 1 phone had alot of internal screen cracking problems (No idea why) but please can anyone who owns the Asus rog 2 tell me if the have encountered any similar issue of it being very fragile or the internal part of the screen cracking without cause? Thank you very much

                                    Can I ask if it is possible to dock the Rog Phone 2 with the Aero Case installed on the mobile desktop dock or do we have to remove the case first?

                                                well im sure asus isnt going to be sending you guys 2000+ dollars worth of stuff again after seeing how you complained about everything and called it junk, and didnt even show a bunch of the accessories. smh have you ever heard of stopping the footage and then getting setup before recording again so that you cut out all the time where you were confused about how things worked, or you didnt know what you were doing?. give me the asus stuff if you are so dissatisfied. at least you gave them exposure.

                                                                            I used the phone with T-Mobile, internet speeds are just like my Note 9, not faster or slower, BUT AGAIN, call reception is terrible, calls took forever to connect and the sound quality was worse than those 20 year old cellular phones, and after hours looking for a solution I find out there is no solution at all!
                                                                            Of course I just packed everything and send it back to Amazon just a few minutes ago.
                                                                            I am not saying this is a bad phone , specs are top of the line, sound speakers are excellent, but it is not perfect, no device on planet earth it is, just my 2 cents here.
