The Asus ROG Phone 2 It is one of the few high-performance smartphones that have Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor today and it was released. This is equipped with a lot of features and top technical specifications, and the cooling system it boasts is just one of these. Note that it is a terminal for games.

But not only is it a mobile gaming, but It is also one of the terminals with the best audio quality on the market, or is what DxOMark affirms in its new document. This has been tested by the benchmark and, thanks to its hardware, the result it has managed to score is among the top 5 of its top.

Before reviewing what DxOMark has just unveiled, keep in mind that the mobile has the following audio and sound hardware: dual stereo speakers with DTS: X, separate amplifiers for each speaker and a dedicated microphone for noise cancellation.

However. The Asus ROG Phone 2 scored well overall, compared to the other Android phones that DxOMark has tested so far, achieving an excellent audio score of 69. It is, without doubt, one of the Android phones that has had the best ratings on the platform to date, although it stands out remarkably behind the 75 points achieved by the Huawei Mate 20 X. It is also slightly behind the main iPhone models.

Breaking down the audio score of the Asus ROG Phone 2, it has a better sound reproduction (70) than a sound recording (64), in relation. These secondary scores cannot be compared directly to each other, but when compared to other phones tested, the recording score is weaker than playback.

The playback performance is good in general and has a particularly strong sound reproduction. Not surprisingly, for a phone intended for players, the maximum volume is one of the highest ever tested, says DxOMark in its report. Similarly, its strongest use case is for gaming audio, which demonstrates a good fit with its intended market. The highs reproduce accurately and the midrange tones sound very natural. On the negative side, there may be some high frequency resonance artifacts at high reproduction volumes; that is, it can present slight distortions. Surprisingly, the ROG Phone 2 suffers from a lack of serious, compared to our other phones with better scores. Its minimum volume is also too low.

Dual stereo amplifier front speakers help give the ROG Phone 2 an impressive sound stage and a good channel balance. That goes along with a particularly high maximum volume, which corresponds to a phone focused on games. The dynamics of sound is also very good, especially when playing. However, the bass could be more shocking.


It is known that the Asus ROG Phone 2 is aimed directly at the mobile game market. When recording audio, the ROG Phone 2 suffers from very few artifacts, even at high volume. It also has reasonably good tonal reproduction that is hindered by the lack of bass, as well as being quite capable of recording noisy audio sources. Unfortunately, the recorded volume is somewhat lower than it should be. Compression is too aggressive at high sound levels, resulting in a smaller than desirable sound envelope.

When recording meetings and notes, do not delete the good background and the sounds can be metallic. The ROG Phone II also does an average job of reproducing the sound stage of the audio recording, which makes it particularly difficult to determine the direction of the sound sources when recording video with the front or rear camera. Recordings of notes and meetings also suffer too much background noise, while concert recordings have reduced dynamics because their overall sound envelope is diminished by aggressive compression.
