Can the ASUS ROG dethrone the Nintendo Switch?

ASUS ROG Phone Android

ASUS today revealed the ROG, an exciting Android phone that looks remarkably similar to the Nintendo Switch. You can dock it, slot two halves of a controller on each side, and even connect a second screen to it so it acts like a 3DS.

It’s also more powerful than the Switch, though Nintendo wasn’t really interested in getting into a power war. Still, if you’re into that sort of thing, and you can find a game to take advantage of it, that’s a nifty feature.

But with that extra power comes an even heftier price tag. The Switch retails for around $300, while the ROG will almost certainly go for double that, if not more. You only need to look at Android phones of a similar spec to figure that out.

So the real question is, would you buy a device that costs double that of the Switch but offers a very similar experience?  Let us know in the comments!
