ROG Phone 2 will have a switch to "tone it down" with the gamer UI
In case you find the ROG Phone 2's UI to be... a bit too much, you'll be happy to know that Asus apparently has you on their mind as well. While we didn't get to see this in our hands-on with the device, since the phones were already set up, XDA has now revealed that the ROG Phone 2 will ask you if you want to go for a classic Android experience on initial setup.
So, you'll have a pick between ROG UI and ZenUI Classic. The latter is the software that runs on the Asus ZenFone 6. It's a light skin that offers near-stock Android experience. The ROG gaming features will not be disabled — they will be hidden in their own app so they don't give you an eyesore when you don't need them.
The ROG Phone 2 is a serious contender whether you're into gaming or not. With the newest Snapdragon 855 Plus, a buttery-smooth 120 Hz 6.6-inch AMOLED screen, front-firing stereo speakers, and a massive 6,000 mAh battery, it's any poweruser's dream, really. So, having the option to tone down the gamer styling if you're not into that sort of thing is an A+ choice by Asus.
