Asus ROG Phone 5 Detailed Review

Design

The Asus ROG 5 design is gamer-centric. It comes with a very premium Glass Sandwich design and comes in two colour options- black and white. On the back panel, there is the ROG logo and Republic of gamers branding along with the hexagonal camera module. The Animatrix LED on this panel is what captures the attention. It allows you to change colours and animation patterns which look pretty cool.

At the front, it carries a 6.8 inches large display with dual front-facing speakers. On the right side, there are volume rocker keys and a power button with a red accent to them. The right metal housing has these shoulder buttons called AirTriggers.

On the left side, a secondary USB port and POGO connector are located for connecting accessories along with a red coloured SIM tray. And at the bottom, there is the primary USB Type-C port, primary microphone and 3.5mm headphone jack (which was not in the ROG 3).

So, the graphics on this look good. It has HDR10 support which will provide you with extra details.

Performance

From the performance point of view, Asus has done no compromise. The ROG 5 is powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC to make sure everything gets done super fast. So power demanding games such as Call Of Duty and Asphalt also run pretty smooth on this one.

It comes in three variants which are- 8GB RAM with 128GB storage, 12GB RAM with 256GB storage and one with 16GB RAM and 256GB storage all at the latest UFS 3.1. But there is no dedicated MicroSD slot given on the device.

The updated Armory Crate app offered is better than ever and provides numerous options for tweaking various performance configurations such as display, network performance etc and give the users much control. Another charming highlight of this smartphone is its front-facing speakers which are very loud and provide even more bass to deliver amazing sound quality.

Camera

The three-camera setup at the back of Asus ROG 5 has a 64MP primary camera, a 13MP ultra-wide camera and a 5MP macro lens. However, there is no telephoto lens on this one. The primary camera captures good quality shots but the ultra-wide lens and macro one deliver only subpar performance.

The front camera is a 24MP shooter which captures good quality shots. So, for selfies and live streaming, it is satisfactory. You can record decent quality videos of up to 8K resolution. There is also Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) but it works only when recording in 1080p.
