1. Flagship phones
In the list of best performing flagshipphones in August, ROG Phone 3, a new gaming phone of Asus, ranks No. 1 with a overallscore of 615,289. This new Asus ROG Phone 3 looks just slightly different fromthe last generation, though it's still designed in the shape of "Eye ofthe Lost Home". It is the second phone to ship with Snapdragon 865 Plusprocessor in the world. Its predecessor ROG Phone 2 was the first phone to shipwith Snapdragon 855 Plus processor last year. This fully demonstrates that Asushas rich experience in integrating high-performance hardware for years, so itdeserves No. 1 in the ranking.

Inprevious ranking lists, it was the only one product with a score above 600,000.But this time, Asus ROG Phone 3 and OnePlus 8 Pro both have higher scores thanit. However, this result is quite great for this phone launched six months ago,especially in the changing Android phone market.
