ASUS ROG Phone2 II ZS660KL Dual SIM 8GB/128GB $680.30 AUD + Shipping @ BuyBuyBox (HK)

1040

First time posting here. After getting the OnePlus 7T Pro deal posted by brisbanecomputerfix yesterday, I had a look at other flagship phones to find this variant at this price. Might be a good deal for those missing out on OnePlus 7T Pro, great specs too.

Note: The landing page will show the Black 12GB/528GB variant at $1177.81, you need to choose the other colour option and it should show 8GB/128GB variant and the right price.

    I am using rog phone ii that I bought from them few weeks back. the phone op wants to point out is the tencent version and comes with global rom flash with CN fingerprint. Google if you want to know more. After converting the CN fingerprint to global completely and currently using Android 10 beta 6, I would say the phone is par with oneplus in its smoothness (Mrs using 7 pro). With some tweaks to fonts and AOD, the phone is a really best flagship value at the moment IMHO. Hope this helps to trigger the buying decision to fellow ozbargainers.

      Have you checked Realme X2 pro? Even cheaper phone with flagship components.

      I'm down this and the Note 10+
      Kogan has the 8Gb.128Gb CN Spec for $799 no accessories, Kogan warranty

      How would they compare performance-wise, you think? Is the Note10+ worth the extra?

        I just sold two note 10 plus, mine and Mrs and got one plus 7 pro for missus and myself a rog phone 2.just loving it. Nothing to hate with the note 10 plus but on daily usage the refresh rate just impresses so much. It comes to person al opinion at the end

        •  

          Cheers. Kogan has the 8Gb/128Gb for $799. That's pretty damn tempting

          •  

            @BinaryPirate: This is almost 100 less than kogan. Why are you tempted towards it.

              •  

                @BinaryPirate: I never had good experience about warranty with kogan myself. They are so slow with response and my phone got lost after it was delivered to them once. Anyways I guess its personal preference

              •  

                @BinaryPirate: I believe Kogan don't handle the warranty. this is in the product listing. Correct me if im wrong but it looks like heybattery is responsible.

                This product is a Third Party Seller product and Kogan.com is not the seller. The Third Party Seller is responsible for the sale and dealing with any claims or any other issue arising out of or in connection with the product. For further details about the Third Party Seller’s terms and conditions of sale, please visit the Third Party Seller's terms and conditions located on the product listing.

                Would this mean we have to ship it to heybattery or to Kogan.

                •  

                  @abschicken: The post-paid label says 'Mobile Device Services'.
                  All the dropshippers have a third party operator doing their warranty jobs.
                  It's just easier to say Kogan

                  •  

                    @BinaryPirate: ok. so does that mean we send to Kogan and they pay to send it overseas or we send it overseas.

                    •  

                      @abschicken: Nah. The 3rd party repairers are in Victoria. The phones come from o/s but warranty repairs are done locally.

                      •  

                        @BinaryPirate: thats good. If we buy from this deal I would have to send OS correct. If so, then Kogan offer is definitely worth the money I think. $100 isn't much. I heard that these units can have internal screen cracking for no apparent reason. Im thinking for that reason its worth it.

                        •  

                          @abschicken: That's about right. $100 insurance against that issue is worth it. Especially since it looks like Asus is denying it's a fault, instead blaming users. Sucky.
                          Think I'll put my trigger finger away for a bit.
                          Maybe go the Note10+ or a Blackshark Pro2 and wait for the 3rd generation Asus.

        •  

          Yeah high refresh rate screens are like crack cocaine… It's hard to use anything else they're so addictive.

        •  

          Why'd you sell note 10 plus?

          •  

            @Ryballs: For me, it was solely because of refresh rate. I had used rog phone 2 when it launched and sold it to my gamer friend as he was so desperate and got note 10 plus but I had always missed the refresh rate. So now I am back

    •  

      So does this phone come with global rom if not can you flash easily like Oneplus? And your thoughts getting rather than 7T pro?

      •  

        It comes with global rom but the rom is pretty much useless coz u don't get ota nor you can flash manually because it still has cn fingerprint. Please Google as I won't be able to explain you all.
        It's a bit difficult to flash than one plus in my experience but nothing too difficult.
        I got one plus 7t pro too from earlier deal for my Mrs since she wanted to upgrade from one plus 7 pro but my order got cancelled saying low on stock.
        I personally prefer both equally and I dont have anything to differentiate between them.

        •  

          Thanks I don't really wanna read anymore stuff on Asus to mod or hack it to get the rom going. Think I will stick with Oneplus.

          Gonna wait for 8 can't be bothered upgrading from 6T.

    •  

      Any tips on where to get android 10 and change the cn fingerprint? Thanks in advance. ..

      •  

        There is a xda forum which has step by step process.
        Just make sure to read all the steps before even proceeding with the first one.
        Google "converting rog phone 2 from cn to ww" and it should come up.
        Android 10 is still in beta. I am using beta 6.For me it's so smooth and stable I can live with this until my next phone. Note google pay does not work but I never use it anyway.

    it's not waterproof, in case that's something you look for. Good price though

      This is Rog Phone 2, the new model with Snapdragon 855+ chip, the same processor used in OnePlus 7T Pro. You can see it in the specs section.

    Marques brownlee on youtube has a great highly rated review on this phone. Cos even though it's specced for gaming, it ends up being a great normal phone anyways ie great huge battery life, epic screen, very fast specs & clean software experience etc. It has headphone jack too. Only thing it's really missing that's a potential deal breaker is waterproofing.

    Cracking price. I was keen on these at launch but the price was way out. Ended up with a Mi 9t pro instead. Very tempted to buy this and sell the 9t pro.

    Hmm

    This phone or K20 Pro Premium with 12Gb Ram + 512 GB storage please?
    The Mi is slightly cheaper.

      For better gaming, get this.

      120hz and larger screen, much bigger battery.

      •  

        Sorry, I am not that specific. I am a casual mobile gamer. No PUGB, Fortnite…and the likes.
        Will you actually notice the difference between 8GB and 12GB in real life?

        • +1 vote

          Haven't used 12gb version, I have the 8gb.

          I am also just a casual gamer, and this phone is already an overkill. You will be fine with 8gb version.

  •  

    i would consider getting a "gaming" phone but to utilise a gaming phone to its optimal potential, you need the software that can pair it. if i wanted a gaming phone i'll be happy with a S9 or even S8 for my gacha games and some music games but thats pretty much the scope of Mobile gaming i do. if i wanted to player AAA games i would 100% invest on a phone thats capable of streaming said games from my PC. but thats also limited on my net speed which is shit considering we're in Australia.
    for reference, i tried using PS4 Remote play streaming APP on with my PC and S9+ and theres a noticeable input lag on the S9+ but i'm able to play PS4 games fine on PC, considering its connected via ethernet.
    im not that techy with mobile chips but if they can improve the streaming aspect on mobile, that'll be cool

    Does this phone have VOLTE ?

    i refuse to buy from perfect mission ebay and this site as well as they advertise on all their products as "last one" as a tactic to get you to buy asap which I believe is downright shady and unprofessional

    Sure no delays in shipping? I'm not buying anything for HK or China with the virus going on

    Is the site trustworthy?

    • +2 votes

      That is my concern as well. I haven't bought from them before, so I have done a few quick searches online and general consensus seem to be avoid purchasing big items from them. In having said that, payment is via paypal so I assume there would be some level of protection there? Despite the temptation, I might pass on this one.

      I bought this phone from them. Legit seller. They also have eBay shop. Slightly cheaper on the website.

  •  

    THis phone is crazy af. I want it. But what happens if you crack the screen, where the hell do you go to get it fixed?

  •  

    So, this is awesome but

    • no voLTE
    • no waterproofing
    • 1080p
    • +2 votes

      1080p is a positive for me. I had a 4k (z5 premium) and 1440p (mate 10) phones as my previous phones and currently a 1080p (op7) and whatever weird resolution the iPhone 11 is and I don't miss the higher res whatsoever

    •  

      I think VOLTe is carries specific? You're carrier enable it I think.
      Its a gaming phone not a swimming phone. You're not going to game in your bathroom or in the swimming pool right?
      1080p is fine on a mobile. I am still using an LG LB6500 TV from 2013 and its 1080p. Pictures on the TV still looks great.

    Is the ROG series for gaming?

    looks like the 8gb variant is sold out

  • -3 votes

    The best phone in the world is a staggering 680 bucks dang, but I do recall to repair that phone in Asia is 700$ locally maybe more.

    Food for thought.

  •  

    Gonna cost heaps but apparently the new S20 can do 120hz at 1080p

    Some questions I have hoping people can answer (I spent a tonne of time googling)

    1. This phone is “global rom” but ch fingerprint, is there any downside to that, no band 28 is a downside? I am with optus will this really affect me or not really?

    2. If i got this phone and put my sim in can the phone be updated?

    I would love to get this as just finished 24 month 8 plus plan and want to move away from apple for the first time

    •  

      Edit - disregard, i’m just gonna wait for oneplus 8

      •  

        Maybe a good choice for yourself and others who do not like/want to experiment with

        roms etc and just want a phones software to just work out of the box with all features

        working for Australia including B28/NFC/Google Pay and OTA updates.

    out of stocks almost all phones from China, delays shipping 21st February.
    I contacted Alibaba first contact.

    Lacking wireless charging, was going to buy this last year.
    Will wait for rog phone 3

    I am so close to purchasing one of these but my Samsung S8+ is still perfectly fine. I'll keep waiting till my phone dies then I'll see what ROG phone is out at the time i think
