I’m not a diehard Batman fan, but I’ve at all times found him to be the best superhero around. As an adolescent, I made my dad buy me a Batgirl shirt and a pair of Batman sneakers because I believed I used to be fashionable.
Burr, I do know. While I still appreciate Batman’s aesthetics, values, and love of technology, I need to award the Batman Fanatic title to my colleague Matt.
It has shirts, hats, masks, the Secretlab Dark Knight Edition gaming chair and possibly much more.
When ASUS told us they desired to send us the entire ASUS ROG Phone 6 Batman Edition kit for review, it’s secure to say Matt was excited.
Nonetheless, I did manage to spend a while alone with the phone, so here’s what it’s all about. (For the sake of brevity, I will be referring to it as Batman’s phone for many of this text.)
“Bat” you rarely see a phone with such unpacking
Batman’s phone is available in a box that you just actually would not wish to throw away should you’re a diehard Batman fan.
Dark foamed polypropylene (EPP) has been molded into the long-lasting bat emblem with the Batman logo embossed on its surface and opens like a briefcase.
This is unquestionably one in every of the more premium unboxings that I actually have seen in person. You almost feel as should you are opening a case with high-tech devices or weapons, ready for a mission.
Inside there’s a phone, its charger, a phone case, a tool for removing the SIM card in the form of a Bat emblem with a stand for it and a Bat-Signal projector.
Yes, you get your individual Bat-Signal, but I do not think you need to use it in an emergency. It’s just a really cool prop to your gadget collection.
It projects one in every of two versions of the long-lasting Bat-Signal to nearby surfaces and might be powered by a USB-C cable connected to your phone.
Like other phones within the Phone 6 series, the AeroActive Cooler 6 and other peripherals might be used seamlessly with the Batman phone.
At first glance, the back of the phone itself doesn’t look too removed from the non-Pro and non-Ultimate variants of the Phone 6 series, except for the ASUS ROG RGB logo, which has been replaced with a Bat emblem.
But there’s more to it. ASUS describes its single color scheme as “muted and atmospheric Gotham City Black” with graphic details inspired by Batman Gauntlet.
It also has a special semi-matte finish that’s designed to reflect light in a way intended to mimic the long-lasting Bat-Signal floodlight image illuminating dark clouds within the Gotham City night sky.
With such attention to the design, protection could be a priority, hence the Batman Aero Case is provided.
On the skin, the Aero Case has a geometrical representation of the Bat emblem, created in layers for a 3D effect.
Inside, there’s a small Easter egg in the shape of a picture inspired by Batman comics.
The phone is kind of slippery, so the Aero case is a pleasant accessory, but should you’re in search of a safer grip during sweaty gaming sessions, you’d higher find one other case.
Attention to detail that may make fans a “bat”
Twiddling with the phone somewhat, it became clear that ASUS also thought in regards to the small details.
It has a custom Batman-inspired UI (after all) that gives fans with an exclusive pack of Batman animated themes.
Includes Batman live wallpaper and a redesigned app icon frame. I’ve noticed that even the sound design has been reworked, bringing to mind what Batman’s lair feels like with all its technology.
Here’s a fun fact: when your phone is in X mode for optimal gaming performance, you’ll notice that you just are getting a red Batman wallpaper. When X mode is off, the wallpaper routinely turns blue.
It is a handy visual reminder for many who don’t desire to suddenly run out of power quickly, but should not be an enormous worry with the phone’s powerful 6,000mAh battery.
Other details that may delight Batman fans include a fingerprint scanner icon within the display that takes the form of a yellow bat emblem, exclusive sound and animation while charging the phone, and more.
Overall, ASUS ROG Phone 6 Batman Edition has all of the features of a premium flagship model and stays true to the ASUS ROG experience. It’s only a far more unique purchase for many who love the classic DC hero.
The Limited Edition Batman phone is simply available in a single configuration with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage and is powered by the most recent MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset.
Officially it’s going to go on sale in Malaysia November 25, 2022for PLN 4 799so tighten the strings in your purse by then if you would like to add this to your Batman collection.
