ROG Phone 5 was officially released to the public some time ago, and with a series of specifications it brought, ROG Phone 5 feels very worthy of being called the best gaming smartphone today.
The Asus ROG Phone 5 is powered by Snapdragon 888, the fastest Android mobile chipset. Combined with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 internal memory.
To improve performance while playing games, X Mode is presented, which has been upgraded from its predecessor. Gamers can control CPU, GPU, thermal limit, refresh rate, touch sensitivity, and network, both per game and application.
On to the display, Asus spoils gamers’ eyes by presenting an AMOLED E4 panel measuring 6.78 inches Full HD +. That offers a refresh rate of 144 Hz, 1 ms response time, 300 Hz touch sampling rate, and 24.3 ms touch latency.
The battery has a capacity of 6,000 mAh, so it can support playing games for hours. Asus provides 65W fast charging features and power-saving technology that makes the battery last longer to be fully charged.
To maximize gameplay, a series of features that were provided in the previous generation got updated capabilities. There is Air Trigger 5, which the company claimed to be more accurate and Motion Control with more movement support.
Despite prioritizing gaming experience, Asus still pays detailed attention to the needs of photography. Hence three cameras were installed on the back. The primary sensor uses a Sony IMX686 with a 64MP size side by side with an ultra-wide and macro lens.
Price and Availability
Apart from ROG Phone 5, Asus also presents two other variants of its latest gaming smartphone lineup. There are ROG Phone 5 Pro and ROG Phone 5 Ultimate, which are limited edition. The basic variant of the ROG Phone 5 starts at 799 Euros.
