Players around the world - rejoice! Another weapon added to your arsenal is Asus ROG Phone 5. The latest Asus gaming phone comes in three editions and has a great look, amazing power and one of the most unique screens in the world of smartphones.

If you find regular smartphones boring, this RGB-lit, aggressive-looking phone will put a smile on your face. Asus launched three phones this year, starting with the standard version, and the other two phones are:

The differences between the three versions are very simple, in the internal configuration only, nothing more. The rest of the specifications are completely identical, so let's dive into the details of the new gaming phone generation from Asus:

Asus ROG Phone 5 specifications

All three ROG Phone 5 models feature a custom 6.78-inch Samsung AMOLED display with FHD+ quality and a 144Hz refresh rate. Users can choose between 144Hz, 120Hz, or 60Hz auto refresh rate modes.

The new screen is 23% brighter than its predecessor, having a peak brightness of 800 nits making it perfectly lit on a bright and sunny day. Color accuracy is also great, certification comes with HDR10+ certification, and finally, there's a fingerprint sensor under the screen and it's very responsive.

ROG Phone 5 comes with the latest Snapdragon 888 processor with Adreno 660 GPU which delivers 35% better performance than the last generation ROG Phone.

Phone overheating is often a problem and is most evident during high-intensity tasks, so Asus has improved the cooling feature with GameCool 5. The position of the internal components of the phone has been redesigned to maximize the level of cooling, and the vapor chamber has been reconfigured. .

We all know that RAM is important to gamers, so ASUS decided to make everyone's dreams come true. The Ultimate model features 18GB of RAM, which is more than the RAM found in many modern PCs.

The Pro and Ultimate models also feature 512GB of internal storage, while the Standard Edition comes with versions in several internal configurations from 8GB/128GB to 16GB/256GB.

All three models are equipped with WiFi 6E support; Which means more stable communication capabilities even in crowded networks.

Games Features

Modern flagship smartphones are already powerful enough to handle games, so there must be something different about so-called “gaming” phones, right? It all boils down to controls and optimization, both in the software and in the hardware. ROG Phone 5 features a redesigned AirTrigger system and ultrasonic buttons located on the phone's body.

There's a dedicated gaming mode, of course, called X-Mode, and gamers will be able to make the most of Game Genie which works great in tandem with a dedicated Esports feature, which mutes notifications for even more powerful internal performance. When X Mode is activated, a great visual change will occur as the RGB logo on the back of the phone will begin to glow indicating it's time to play!

Asus ROG Phone 5 cameras and audio experience

If you are a gamer, you probably don't care much about shooting with your smartphone. However, ROG Phone 5 does come with a good camera setup in case you want to take some photos or videos.

There are three cameras in the back. A 64-megapixel primary camera, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide lens, a 5-megapixel macro sensor, and a single 24-megapixel front camera.

The audio experience on the ROG Phone 5 is very impressive. Two front speakers use dedicated mono amplifiers, providing clear and powerful sound. There's also a 3.5mm headphone jack and support for Hi-Res audio thanks to a Pro DAC chip and a dedicated headphone amplifier.

There is an AudioWizard app where you can customize the audio to whatever you want, and we have different audio settings set up by Dirac, including Dynamic, Music, Cinema and Game. Game mode will improve in-game sound effects such as steps and gunshots.

The battery is fully satisfactory

Asus ROG Phone 5 battery

Nothing drains your battery like spending too much time gaming. That's why the ROG Phone 5 packs not one but two 3000mAh batteries to offer a combined 6000mAh capacity.

There are smart battery care features and fast charging is also improved. ROG Phone 5 supports 65W fast charging and can charge up to 4200mAh (70%) in just 30 minutes and reach 100% in less than an hour.

The improved cooling feature also helps the phone during the charging process, as it can reduce the phone temperature up to 7°C in 30W charging mode and up to 3°C in 65W mode compared to Asus ROG 3. Larger capacity also reduces charge and discharge cycles which helps extend battery life.
