Reviewers from Nextpit have found the following[***]:
The Asus ROG Phone 3 features a 6.59-inch AMOLED Full HD+ screen with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels (391 ppi) While some might see this to be a step backward in terms of design, it does gain brownie points with me because there are no tear-drop notches or punch hole cameras. The phone also features an "X mode" that will further boost performance should you require it to do so.

The Asus ROG Phone 3 succeeds in just about every way as a gaming device. The phone heats up very easily when gaming, and using the fan to keep it cool creates a whole new set of problems.
