Although the RAM is lower than that of its competitors, Apple’s software optimization tends to offer a smooth and responsive user experience, even in the most demanding tasks. Finally, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra shares the same processor as the Asus, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, also with 12 GB of RAM and equivalent storage options. All three allow for playing the most demanding games with maximum detail and fluidity.

Now, let’s move on to the display, a crucial element for the user experience, whether consuming multimedia content, browsing the Internet, or gaming. The Asus ROG Phone 8 features a 6.78-inch AMOLED display with curved edges, offering a resolution of 1080×2400 pixels and an impressive peak brightness of 2500 cd/m². Its refresh rate can reach 165 Hz for video games, which is particularly notable for gaming enthusiasts, ensuring exceptional fluidity and responsiveness.

The Asus ROG Phone 8, although slightly behind in terms of resolution, compensates with its high refresh rate, particularly advantageous for gaming. The iPhone 15 Pro, with its quality screen and Apple’s software optimization, also offers a remarkable visual experience, although it is the smallest of the three. The preference between these devices will ultimately depend on individual priorities: image quality, fluidity, or optimized gaming experience.

What configurations for the cameras and what about connectivity?

Regarding photography, the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra stands out with a 200-megapixel main sensor, offering versatility and superior image quality, followed by the Asus ROG Phone 8 and the iPhone 15 Pro.
