Reviews for the Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate

88.7% Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate review - The collector's item among gaming smartphones | Notebookcheck
The ROG Phone 5 Ultimate is the spearhead of the series and the only model that can draw on 18 GB of working memory. The monochrome Vision display on the back is supposed to exude a classy flair, and the sensor keys on the back expand the gaming controls.
90% Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate review
Source: Phone Arena English
With just a few noteworthy changes over the base ROG Phone 5, the limited edition Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate is definitely not the phone for most people. But with its striking design, high customizability, an overkill of RAM and limited status, the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate is definitely the Holy Grail for mobile gamers.

70% Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate Review: Overkill
Source: The Verge English
Like every gaming phone I’ve checked out yet, the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate is stuck in this weird place of being a very capable device that somehow delivers on its many promises, yet it still doesn’t feel worth the money. For average people who play the occasional game, either directly from their phones or through game streaming services, buying a cheap clip to fasten a controller to your phone will probably be a good enough solution. There are also some comfortable controller setups for iPhone and Android (like Backbone’s Go and Razer’s Kishi for iOS and Android) that can turn most phones into more of a Nintendo Switch-like experience that requires less fuss and far less of an investment than Asus’ ROG Phone 5 Ultimate.

70% Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate review: Ridiculously powerful
Source: Tom's Guide English
If you only care about a premium mobile gaming experience, then the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate is for you. It has insane power, ridiculously long battery life, and all the features and gimmicks you could want. But it’s not as good as the best phones, thanks to those subpar cameras, which limits the ROG Phone’s appeal outside of gaming circles.

ROG Phone 5 Ultimate Review: Changing The Game
Source: MrMobile English
Just like it says on the exquisitely crafted box, the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate from ASUS is indeed the “ultimate” gaming smartphone of 2021. And not just by default, after the exit of Razer from the gaming phone space and the paucity of gaming-centric competitors in the North American market. No, the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate is the king of gaming phones because of a potent combination of perks, polish … and panache. It’s a gaming phone that even filthy casuals like MrMobile can love – and love it, I do.
