Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate: Smells like game spirit

In the popular TV show Mad Men, the character Roger Sterling, portrayed by the talented John Slattery, delivers many memorable lines. One of his lines holds particular relevance to Asus and its ROG phones. Sterling says, “You want to be on some people’s minds. Some people’s you don’t.” This sentiment encapsulates what the ROG phone represents – it caters to a specific group of individuals. These individuals are not your average consumers seeking a high-end smartphone; instead, they are gamers who desire a phone tailored to their gaming needs. The ROG Phone 7 series, comprising the Asus ROG Phone 7 and 7 Ultimate, embodies tis concept.

Both these gaming smartphones are now available for purchase. The base model starts at Rs 74,999 and offers 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. On the other hand, the Ultimate variant, as the name implies, comes with a single configuration featuring 16GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage, with a price tag of Rs 99,999. The Ultimate variant includes the AeroActive portal, which enhances heat management, working in conjunction with the AeroActive Cooler 7 that also functions as an external speaker. After using the Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate for a few weeks, here’s our take on Asus’ latest gaming smartphone.

Asus has made significant camera upgrades to the ROG Phone 7 series, and the company believes these improvements should not be underestimated. While the phone is primarily designed for gaming, the camera performance is decent enough for most users, although it may not be on par with flagship smartphones from top brands.

The 50MP Sony IMX766 main sensor produces near-real colors and sharp images in point-and-shoot scenarios. The portrait mode, in default settings, adds a significant amount of blur or bokeh effect around the subject. The 32MP OV32 Quad Bayer front sensor captures snappy selfies. The 13MP ultra-wide camera and 8MP macro camera also deliver satisfactory results. However, there are some issues with saturation and dynamic range in the final output, although they are not significant enough to deter from the phone’s primary focus, which is gaming.
