Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate review: the hottest and coolest gamer

Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate: Two-minute review

The Asus ROG Phone 7 Ultimate is the fastest Android phone you can buy, and it offers more options for tweaking and boosting performance than any phone needs. In every way that matters for gamers, the ROG Phone 7 Ultimate beats its rivals hands down. It has a display that runs faster than the frame rate of any game you’ll play, a huge battery, and some unique features that go some way towards justifying the sky-high price. 

Everything about this phone is geared towards gaming, from the moment you open the box. The design isn’t a huge departure from last year’s model, but if you’re new to ROG phones you’re in for a treat. The style is aggressive, with lines and detailing like a spaceship, and the phone even has a 2-inch OLED display on the back that can flash a limited set of animations to let the world know you’re gaming on your gaming phone. Stand back or gather round; your choice.

The ROG Phone 7 Ultimate is a maxed out version of the impressive Asus ROG Phone 7, with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, a delirious 16GB of RAM, and a half-terabyte of storage. You get the latest UFS 4.0 storage, the latest Wi-Fi 6e and Wi-Fi 7 (which isn’t even officially official), and not one but two USB-C ports, including one that can handle DisplayPort for video output. 

There are some differences between the Ultimate and the base model ROG Phone 7. You can get the Phone 7 with the same 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, but the Ultimate gives you more. The Ultimate model gives you a 2-inch OLED display on the back, with some limited features. If that isn’t impressive enough, it also comes with the AeroActive Cooler attachment, which is a combination subwoofer and fan, capable of blowing air into a special port on the back of the Ultimate model.

If those things aren’t meaningful to you, then the Ultimate ROG phone probably isn’t for you. This is a phone that’s made for running big multiplayer games with highly-detailed graphics. It’s a phone for maxing-out the detail levels in Call of Duty, or preloading all the maps in Genshin Impact. It’s not for being productive. It’s not for taking pretty pictures. It’s for gaming, pure and complex.
