Asus ROG Phone 5 review


Another year, another ROG Phone. Asus has relentlessly been keeping up its efforts to deliver "The ultimate smartphone gaming experience" for four years...

Even more toned-down, but still ROG-inspired gamer's design with great build quality.

No longer backwards compatible with most ROG Phone II or 3 accessories. Available accessory ecosystem is significantly smaller than on previous models

Perhaps Asus is amidst some business "reorientation" here. Shifting focus away from end users and extravagant accessories to capture headlines and laser-focusing on delivering pro tools for the e-sports contestants and organizers exclusively. It seems...

Asus ROG Phone 5 Review: Mighty specs make gaming truly exciting


The Asus ROG Phone 5 has a mighty spec sheet and masses of game-related features, but does all this generate enough excitement to keep us playing? We find out.

Stunning screen ; The best audio on a smartphone today ; Masses of power and ability ; Very fast charging ; Effective, well thought-out gaming features ; Excellent software package

Big and heavy ; Camera doesn't match the competition ; No IP68 water resistance

Asus ROG Phone 5 review: The ultimate gamer’s phone


Asus ROG Phone 5 is a dream phone for gamers

Unmatched performance on Android ; Excellent battery life ; Beautiful responsive 144Hz display ; Headphone jack with Quad DAC ; Extensive software optimization

No wireless charging ; Weak camera performance ; Poor software support track record

The Asus ROG Phone 5 isn’t trying to compete with traditional flagships, it’s playing a different game —and winning.

The ASUS ROG Phone III Review: A 144Hz 6000mAh Beast With Caveats


ASUS's ROG Phones over the last few years have been devices of interesting differentiation, with the company delivering experiences that stood out from the crowd in one way or the other. This year, the new ROG Phone III doesn't quite represent an as...

I don’t see the 999€ or 1099€ variants of the ROG Phone III being worth it, however the 799€ base model should make for a quite balanced phone which shines in terms of battery life, and gives you a great high-refresh rate experience. If you can live...

Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate review


With just a few noteworthy changes over the base ROG Phone 5, the limited edition Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate is definitely not the phone for most people. But with its striking design, high customizability, an overkill of RAM and limited status, the ROG...

Amazing speakers ; Super-smooth AMOLED screen ; Long battery life and 65W charging ; Highly customizable ; AirTriggers ; Optional ROG gaming accessories ; Striking, stylish design

Limited availability

ASUS ROG Phone 5 is an upgrade with faster processor, more gaming gesture controls, better sounding speakers, improved cameras.

Excellent performance for gaming and apps More AirTrigger gestures available Good speaker quality Comes with 3.5mm audio jack

Bulky Macro camera is not that usable Accessories from previous ROG Phone models are not compatible Lacks IP-rating

The ASUS ROG Phone 5 is a phone designed for mobile gamers with a lot of gesture controls to improve play interaction. Even as a non-gamer, I enjoyed using the ROG Phone 5, because it runs very smoothly, comes with sufficient amount of personalisation,...

Asus ROG Phone 5 review: Over-the-top gaming power


The Asus ROG Phone 5 is an absolute powerhouse of a phone. It's got a big display with a 144Hz refresh rate and a huge battery to power it all.

Superb performance ; Beautiful AMOLED display with 144Hz refresh rate ; Excellent battery life ; Powerful front-facing speakers

Disappointing night mode ; Bulky and heavy ; “Gamer” aesthetic not for everyone ; No wireless charging

Buy the ROG Phone 5 if you want a mammoth battery that’s incredibly difficult to kill or if you want the peak gaming performance available on Android. It's a true marvel of engineering to be sure. And you get some extra RGB and gamer flair for your...

Asus ROG Phone 5 Review: Boon To Hardcore Mobile Gamers


Here is the full review of the Asus ROG Phone 5, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC.

144Hz refresh rate display ; 6000 mAh battery ; Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC

No microSD card slot ; No wireless charging ; No IP rating

This time around, the Asus ROG Phone 5 comes in multiple options, where the high-end device costs up to Rs. 79,999 and offers 18GB RAM and 512GB internal storage. In my experience, I feel the base variant that costs Rs. 49,999 with 8GB RAM and 128GB...
