The ASUS ROG Phone 3 was introduced just a few days ago, as one of the most powerful gaming smartphones ever, arriving with a list of specifications to make any top of the range envious.
As with previous models, the ROG Phone 3 also stood out for the quality of its screen, which comes with support for a 144Hz refresh rate. However, the XDA Developers team has discovered a secret that will leave fans impressed. The smartphone screen can support up to 160Hz, being only beaten by Sharp Aquos zero2 which reaches 240Hz.
However, it is important to note that 160Hz is not available in the smartphone settings, and it is necessary to use ADB commands to make it available. Furthermore, since it is not a feature intended for users (at least for now), it is not optimized and calibrated correctly.
How to activate 160Hz support on ASUS ROG Phone 3
If you already have the ROG Phone 3 in your hands and want to test the screen of your new gaming smartphone to the fullest, you will need to learn to work with the ADB controls. However, there is a warning that this type of procedure can have serious consequences for the smartphone if the user does not know exactly what he is doing.
After preparing the smartphone and PC for the use of ADB commands, using the command “adb shell setprop debug.vendor.asus.fps.eng 1“, it will be possible to activate the option for 160Hz.
Once the command is executed, just restart the smartphone to finish the process. Then, through the smartphone settings, you will be able to find the option to activate 160Hz.
After several tests, the XDA Developers team confirmed that the smartphone screen actually has a refresh rate of 160Hz and that, most applications that ASUS claims to only run at 144Hz, should also work at 160Hz.
