Aftershock is a company generally known for its affordable, no-frills devices, and there are few products that exemplify that approach as well as the Forge 15 Pro. The Pro model is a higher-end version of the Forge 15, part of its new series of value-oriented devices. This means the focus isn't on having a super premium slim and light build or the best possible specifications. Instead, the fat has been stripped out in favor of sensible performance and what Aftershock thinks you really need.
Here's an overview of the Forge 15 Pro model we're reviewing today:
At S$2,080, the Forge 15 Pro is pretty attractively priced for its specs compared to the competition, but there are obvious compromises in areas like the design, build and battery life. It's obvious that the Forge 15 Pro isn't going to impress in terms of how thin or light it is, and it also features a mostly plastic body instead of a more premium all-metal chassis. That said, I find it difficult to complain given the price. Read on to find out more about how it performs in the next few pages!
