Upon eagerly opening the phone box, I was greeted by the ROG Phone 6D and a collection of additional accessories.

The phone itself boasts a sleek space grey hue and proudly showcases the iconic ROG design with an RGB display on the back.

Despite being released in October 2022, the phone still packs a punch with its impressive specs.

Powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ Mobile Platform processor and featuring a 6.78-inch AMOLED display with a refresh rate of up to 165 hertz, it clearly establishes itself as a gaming-focused device.

The phone also has a sizable 6000 mAh battery and a rapid 65-watt USB Power Delivery HyperCharge adapter.

According to their website, you can charge the phone from 0 to 100% in just 42 minutes, ensuring quick and efficient charging for prolonged gaming sessions.

The experience begins right from the setup, as a mini-game gives users a glimpse of the phone’s remarkable gaming performance.

After setting up the device, my immediate focus was testing its gaming capabilities by downloading Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.

I decided to push the boundaries, maxing out all the settings in a classic match, and to my delight, the game ran flawlessly.

A standout feature that significantly elevated my gaming experience was the Game Genie.

With a quick swipe to the upper right side of the phone, I accessed an interface where I could effortlessly adjust the refresh rate, mute notifications from other apps, and even initiate game recording instantly.

The Armoury Crate also allows for customization of each game’s settings.

With options like X Mode prioritizing performance and ultra-durable for battery conservation, it provides flexibility tailored to individual preferences.

Despite these impressive features, I encountered a minor hiccup — the phone heating up during extended gaming sessions.

Enter the game-changing AeroCooler 6. This cooling accessory efficiently reduces the phone’s temperature, ensuring a more comfortable and uninterrupted gaming experience.

Final verdict

The ROG 6 MLBB edition is an excellent choice for avid mobile gamers, particularly those immersed in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang. Not only does the phone have a solid build, but it also packs features specifically designed to enhance the gaming experience.

What makes it even more appealing is its affordable price tag of PHP31,995 (Approximately US$570). Considering the phone’s impressive performance and the exclusive accessories that come with it, it stands out as a cost-effective option for anyone in search of a high-quality gaming phone.

You can buy the ROG Phone 6D MLBB M5 edition on ROG’s official website.
