Unlike the other phones of the series, Rog 3 has a good camera specification.Though its kind of Low for a price tag of this range but let’s be fair the gaming phones doesn’t need a high of the range camera specification.The downsides are the Gorilla 3 protection at the back and No headphone jacks. But the phone really don’t need a headphone jack as it has 2 dedicated amplifiers DTS:X stereo speakers to go with your gaming.
