Asus ROG Phone 6D Ultimate: a beast to play
The design and features of this Asus are designed with a fairly clear objective: be the best in games. It is a smartphone that can be used on a day-to-day basis, but there is no point in buying it if you do not play enough with your mobile.
Its design is quite simple as well as innovative: it offers a new feature called AeroActive Cooler for extreme cooling. It is a hatch that can be opened at the rear to lower the temperature of the processor considerably. It is something that, until now, we had not seen.
At the front is a screen with rounded corners and traditional bezels. There are no notches or holes to improve the symmetry of the screen and that nothing gets in the way when you play. It is quite common in mobile gaming.
But if there is something special in its design, it is the dual USB-C port that the company has included. One is placed in the common location of all smartphones and another on one side. In this way you can recharge the device while you play without the cable getting in the way on the side.
