Reviews for the Asus ROG Phone 5

87.8% Asus ROG Phone 5 review: The king of gaming smartphones | Notebookcheck
The ROG Phone 5 is ready to defend the gaming crown, and it aims to convince with cutting-edge hardware and familiar strengths. Find out whether the Asus smartphone is more than just a niche product in our review.
Asus ROG Phone 5 has the longest battery life of any Android phone we've ever tested
Source: CNet English
From the front, when the phone is powered off, there isn't much to notice about the new Asus ROG Phone 5. But on the back, when its logo lights up to contrast its black dot-matrix pattern finish with hot pink '80s punk rock highlights, you can't help but take notice. Seriously, you just need to play some Blondie or Talking Heads to complete the effect.

Source: Trusted Reviews English
The ROG Phone 5 is an excellent smartphone, combining a premium screen, killer specs, a decent camera, long-lasting battery life and fantastic stereo speakers. Its styling won’t be for everyone – and it’s very similar to the ROG Phone 3, which enjoyed a more limited release – but if you can hack its size and styling, and want a fantastic portable media player and gaming device, you’ll be hard-pushed to find more for less.

The Asus ROG Phone 5 is undoubtedly one of the most powerful smartphones available right now with a plethora of gaming-dedicated features that some will really enjoy, but with a large display and a weighty body, the heft and difficulty with one-handed use may put some off.

Asus ROG Phone 5 review: Over-the-top gaming power
Source: Tom's Guide English
If you’re looking for ultimate mobile gaming performance, the ROG Phone 5 is definitely at the top of the list. Its gargantuan battery lasts an incredibly long time, the custom AMOLED display is gorgeous, and the raw power makes almost everything playable at 60 fps or above.

Review: The ROG Phone 5 is still an overpowered gaming phone and that's a good thing (Part I)
Source: Hardware Zone English
If you’re after the world’s most powerful gaming phone that also happens to function as a smartphone equivalent of a Swiss Army knife (take calls, snap photos, texting), and is a hardcore mobile gamer playing mobile games that do take advantage of the ROG Phone 5’s superiority (e.g., the games I mentioned earlier) to elevate your mobile gaming experience, then the question of pricing is moot. There's really just the ROG Phone 5, or perhaps the ROG Phone 3 (if the price drops as expected).

90% Asus ROG Phone 5 review: King of the hill
Source: Android Authority English
The ROG Phone 5 takes the already great formula established by its predecessor and modernizes it for 2021. It has a fast and fluid screen, a surprisingly great main camera, brilliant performance, best-in-class audio, and a flexible software experience. For those reasons, the ROG Phone 5 is the best gaming smartphone you can buy right now.

The Asus ROG 5 is the best gaming smartphone you can buy with design features and software perks that augment the playing experience. Incremental improvements on its predecessor make it a superior choice that make the phone appealing to non-gamers as well, from its good screen to great speakers to unseen internal refinements that let its 65W fast charging juice the phone from zero to almost full in under an hour. It’s still a pricey handset with notable camera shortcomings compared to rival flagships, but the ROG 5 is a recommendable alternative to top Android phones if you don’t mind its few flaws.

Asus ROG Phone 5 Audio review: An excellent choice for nearly any use case
Source: DxOMark English
The latest ROG flagship delivers the best audio performance of all the phones we have tested to date, with consistent results and category-leading sub-scores in both Playback and Recording. While it isn’t the loudest nor the strongest in bass we’ve measured to date, the Asus ROG Phone 5 still constitutes an excellent choice for nearly any use case you might need it for — from listening to music, gaming, or watching movies, to recording in all types of configurations and environments.

Asus ROG Phone 5 preview: what to expect
Source: Phone Arena English
The Asus ROG Phone 5 is shaping up to be the most exciting gaming smartphone of 2021. Its beautiful and smooth 144Hz OLED display will allow for quick reactions during gaming, while its powerful dual stereo speakers will surround the player with rich and clear sound, just like the previous ROG Phone did. But is this phone really such a jump from the ROG Phone 3 that it warrants skipping a number and naming it the Asus ROG Phone 5?
