                                                It’s not the most powerful phone. The A13 CPU and GPU is MILES ahead of the SD855+.

                                                  I think on V8 the Rog phone 2 gets ~480,000 but I could be wrong.

                                                  @Alex Tube250 these are older antutu v7 scores I believe. Antutu V8 has since came out and it changed the way it gives phones scores.

                                                  carter n. That’s strange. My iPhone 11 gets a score of 512,988.

                                                Sad to see you didn't mention there's no netflix app available and no notifications will show on the lockscreen...

                                                  And on a serious note, this phone looks like a very cool alternative if you are looking for something new and you just happen to prefer gaming to taking pictures.

                                                    Now days, one smart phone can't satisfy our need especially travelling into China or any other communist countries! Once you cross the border, most likely customs will ask to open your phone/note book/FB etc account for inspection! A separate "CLEAN" phone / note book / account name ready to prevent any unnecessary trouble to delay your travelling time! I brought ROG Phone II (complete set) "CLEAN phone" only for online mobile gaming purpose, its no point use it as phone while you pug everything for playing...
