The ROG Phone 6 Pro is a premium smartphone through and through. Before publishing its full test, we will give you an overview of its performance.
Here, there is no question of listing all the features of the ROG Phone 6 Pro, you can find it in the announcement article. We want to give you a taste of what this smartphone has to offer in its SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.
A modified design
To achieve the best performance, the design of the ROG Phone 6 has been completely redesigned. First, the SoC is installed in the center of the device. It is surrounded by two large batteries. For heat dissipation, different mechanisms are used. This is what Asus calls the GameCool 6. Understand here that it is a large graphite plate whose goal is to dissipate heat in the most effective way.
To avoid the famous hot spot that we can easily identify after a few minutes of intense activity on a smartphone, Asus has tried to spread the heat across as much of the chassis surface as possible. Which is good for him because the ROG Phone 6 is so good.
Technically, the SoC is placed in the center of the device with a two -part motherboard (a PCB). The same for the two -part battery, but also the passive cooling system, each time installed around the SoC. This allows, in addition to better heat evacuation, to remove the hot area from the fingers resting on the device. Asus also uses a boron nitride thermal compound, which handles heat two hundred times better than clean air.
Interesting first results
We were able to launch a variety of synthetic benchmarks, in addition to launching long games (over 30 minutes) resource -intensive games. Obviously the phone will be hot, not hot.
Thanks to this design, the ROG Phone 6 Pro limits this effect to “throttlingwhen the SoC reduces the CPU/GPU clock frequency. The goal here is to provide stable performance even at full power.
If you want to avoid overheating, Asus has also updated the AeroActive Cooler 6. This is the active cooling, in the form of an accessory with RGB LEDs, that recovers the heat released from the back of the smartphone and evacuated. it’s with the fans. This way of doing things is similar to the fans used on PCs.
We ran various tests using X-Mode. This mode is designed to not interfere with the smartphone’s performance. Apparently, this mode can easily reduce the autonomy of the device. However, we are here for the show.
Accurately… the ROG Phone 6 Pro is impressive. From what you get, this is the most powerful Android smartphone to date. Of all the synthetic benchmarks (Geekbench 5, Antutu 9, PC Mark, GFX Bench, 3D Mark, etc.), it achieves marks higher than any Android smartphone passed through our hands. They even allowed themselves the luxury of doing much better than the iPhone 13 Pro in some tests.

We have done various tests, including mobile games (Genshin Impact or Diablo Immortal), excluding Cloud Gaming services (Stadia, Xbox Game Pass Cloud)…
Add to that the functions and accessories made to measure for him. We tested the AeroActive Cooler 6 as a cooling system, the Kunai 3 Gamepad (controllers like the Switch), the AirTrigger ultrasonic button system… Thus, we are really facing a smartphone cut to satisfy gamers.
The ROG Phone 6 Pro is definitely powerful
Simply put, the ROG Phone 6 Pro excels in many areas related to video games. And we were very happy to play it on the huge 6.78-inch screen.
We’ll discuss that in detail in the test, but you have countless software options, a neat audio section, and a screen that captures well in our tests. Plus, it has become a gamepad and offers unmatched performance today.
In short, in addition to the promise of the role, the ROG Phone 6 Pro is reasonably powerful. It’s amazing what a manufacturer can do if they don’t care to make the thinnest design with the most advanced cameras, or if they’re stuck with an ultra-competitive price tag. Asus isn’t afraid to be weird here and that weirdness manifests itself in so many ways, making it a great option for gamers looking for the most powerful phone out there right now. In short, the whole test doesn’t have to take long.
