ROG Phone 5 Teardown! - Why did it break?!

57 000 Приказа 1,1 мил

Its time to take apart the ROG Phone 5 and see why it breaks under pressure. The ROG 5 is the latest and greatest gaming phone from Asus. It packs a powerful punch... but we found some structural issues that other phones dont have. Today we will dissect the ROG Phone 5 and see what makes it work (or not work) from the inside. Remember that ALL structural defects can be easily fixed with a simple hard case. The ROG Phone 5 is sill a *great* phone. With many positive aspects. Just make sure you have a case on it and it will last forever, just like any other phone.

    Well it was salvageable had he changed the display and back glass but when you purposely manhandle it. I'm disappointed in no discussion about no talk of the air triggers. Mine aren't working anymore I wonder if a restore would fix it

    Ordered the phone today. Together with a screen protector and a case. Also I'm very skinny and light. And will carry a "do not bend" led sign with me at all times. You said not to baby it. BUT me babying my Galaxy S8 caused it to live until today although it has some severe issues nowadays

    I don't think Asus is making the phones consistently and some have these faults. For example, although yours was fine during the tests, the ROG 1 had many phones returned because of minors bumps or bends destroying the screen.

    Seems the ROG Phone team is made up of members from their Graphics Card team. Excessive in the dumb areas, lacking in the smart areas. Silly, given that phones don't just sell regardless of competency/price, like GPUs currently do.

Unfortunately dbrand doesn't offer it for my model and I would like to see this skin availbale for more android phones. Love from Greece.
