Asus, founded in April 1989, is a Taiwanese company, best known to manufacture and sell gaming laptops. Apart from that, the company has also been able to diversify its product offerings, manufacturing, and selling gaming smartphones. Last month, the Taiwanese OEM released its latest gaming smartphone, called Asus ROG Phone 3. Interestingly, the new phone packs a lot of great features, including the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SoC, 16GB of RAM, up to 512GB storage capacity, and 144 Hz / 1 ms AMOLED display for a smooth gaming experience. Although all of the features are amazing, many owners of the smartphone are not yet enjoying the device. That’s because the phone has a lot of bugs currently affecting its performance. Last week, we reported that many of the users are experiencing some problems on their smartphones, including black crush. According to recent reports, it looks like some Asus ROG Phone 3 users are now experiencing an overheating issue on their devices.
