👾 Never too late to own one 👾


Undoubtedly one of the most hyped gadget releases of all times -- the ROG Ally has everything right on paper. A sharp and crisp FHD 120Hz display, new (at the time of release) and powerful AMD Ryzen Z1 Extreme CPU, and the AMD Radeon Navi3 Graphics that is just top of the line when it comes to handheld console GPU. Its compatibility with Windows 11-based games serves as the cherry on top of this enticing gadget.

Now that it almost reaches its 1 year anniversary, along with some recent releases of handheld consoles from competing brands, some might wonder, is it still worth getting an ROG Ally? Do those specs actually reflect on performance or are they just gimmick -- cause you know, nowadays we sure love all those high numbers. And not to forget, now that the hyped has toned down, should you still even get it -- well, considering the flexing moment has passed.


⚔️ It's so powerful, it doesn't get old ⚔️

Technology evolves, not saying that 10 years from now the ROG Ally will still be the most powerful handheld console on the planet. But as for now, it's safe to say that it's so powerful that even after almost a year since its release, it can still perform noticably better than any of the recent competing products. It's capable of playing the best PC games within its slim and comfortable body. Thus whether you're PC, console, or even a mobile gamer, it's going to be hard to resist the lure that this gadget gives with its portability and ability to play Windows-based games.

Our research from various reviews also reveals that you just can't go wrong with the 7-inch 1080p 120Hz display. It allows even the most demanding games to be displayed stunningly and run buttery smooth. It can achieve an average of 465 nits of brightness which is much better than the comparatively dimmer display on competing gadgets. It also achieved 108.6% of the sRGB color gamut and 76.9% of the DCI-P3 color space giving whomever is in the posession of this device a superior viewing experience.



Another area in which the Ally beats out the competition is in the sound. Both in terms of the inbuilt device audio coming from the front-facing speakers and in terms of the fan audio coming from inside the device. With the combination of higher-quality speakers and an almost silent internal fan setup, the user is able to hear in-game audio much clearer on the Ally than the Deck without having to connect earphones.


👽 Expectations meet reality 👽

The ROG Ally is a legitimate alternative to a gaming laptop if you’re considering one, and the slim and sleek form may fit into your activities better than a laptop. ASUS truly succeeded here, given that the device has definitely inspired new competing handhelds from emerging. Even if that is a qualified success, and some continued software improvements and personalized DIY additions, ROG Ally will definitely be a real hit for you.
