Asus ROG Phone 5 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.
