Essential Accessories to Buy
Honestly, you don’t need to buy each and every accessory that ASUS has launched. Here are the accessories that are worth buying in my opinion –
- ROG Phone case – The official ROG Phone case is the only case that’s available for the phone right now. Assuming that you are planning to use for the phone for at least a year or two, a case is an absolute must. It would have been awesome ASUS bundled the case inside the box, but sadly it’s missing inside the box. So, the ROG Phone case is a must buy.
- GameVice (Joy Stick) – Any gaming phone is incomplete without a pair of controllers. Thankfully ASUS has launched one with the phone called GameVice. It essentially adds a controllers to your smartphone, complete with all the buttons and joysticks. It’s really cool, and a must have for playing games like PUBG Mobile, Fortnite, etc.
- ROG Professional Dock – Now, this one is not for everyone, but you might to get one if you want to get a more cinematic gaming experience. It lets you connect the phone to a TV via the Type-C port. It also adds a bunch of I/O ports like HDMI, two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, and more.
The TwinView dock, and the Desktop Dock are only for hardcore gaming enthusiasts. Of course, they’ll step up gaming experience, but you won’t be missing out on much by not buying them.
