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.

Asus ROG Phone 5 review

 

The most exciting gaming phone of 2021 is finally here. But is it just for gamers or could it be the perfect phone for many of us?

Amazing speakers; Beautiful, smooth display; Long battery life, 65W charging; High customizability; AirTriggers; Optional gaming accessories

Back feels plasticky and slides easily; Phone might be a bit heavy for some

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...

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...

Asus ROG Phone 5

 

The Asus ROG Phone 5 is the best gaming phone you can buy

Beautiful, high refresh rate display ; Smart camera software ; Fantastically tuned for gamers

No OIS or telephoto camera ; No IP68 water or dust resistance ; Screen is Full HD, not Quad HD

The Asus ROG Phone 5 falls behind most of the £799 (approx. $950) competition when it comes to photography. Despite this, it’s still the best gaming phone around, and its camera isn’t bad. Between its amped-up power, gaming accessories, screen specs,...
