Reviews for the Asus ROG Phone 5s Pro

All of this being said; honestly, we would probably go for the older device, given a direct choice between the vanilla ROG Phone 5 and the new ROG Phone 5s. However, we understand the justification for the switch to the Snapdragon 888+ and all things considered, we believe few could have pulled it off better than Asus.

The 65W charging power combined with the aggressive charging strategy can keep the mobile phone powered at any time. The 6000mAh battery can be fully charged in about 60 minutes, which may be the strength of Tencent’s ROG gaming phone 5s Pro. For gaming phones, pure stacking is far easier than polishing software. Tencent ROG gaming phone 5s Pro achieves the top level of hardware while polishing the software to the extreme. If you are a hardcore mobile game player, Tencent ROG gaming phone 5s Pro will be your choice.

Since we've already reviewed the ROG Phone 5 and its Ultimate Edition and there aren't many changes here, we have a good idea what this new phone is about. It's most definitely worthy of our recommendation. The 5s Pro, even with its hefty price, succeeds its predecessors at the top spot among gaming phones. It's a premium offering, sure, but it's compatible with the best ecosystem of gaming accessories, and the software is probably the most polished one in town, too. That's as much as we can say before our full review is ready.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for smartphones.
