Asus ROG Phone

The Asus ROG Phone is a smartphone built for gaming purpose. ROG, a famous sub brand of Asus, stands for Republic of Gamers and is a division of Asus that focuses on gaming, e-sports, and modding PCs. The company has made a lot of gaming laptops which look cool with heat vents, LED lightings as well as device designs inspired by different game environments and weapons. It is about time Asus implements these features to make gaming smartphones. This is a phone built to win. Its world-beating, speed-binned 2.96 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform and Adreno 630 GPU deliver great performance not only for gaming but also to run multiple apps. The Snapdragon 845 on the ROG phone is slightly overclocked, thus it could produce more heat compared to other devices with the same processor. To combat with heat produced when a user is gaming, its unique GameCool vapor-chamber cooling system with detachable AeroActive Cooler makes up for an extra cooling boost and sustains high frame rates in the heat of battle. Using a combination of tough, precision-crafted 2.5D- and 3D-curved Corning Gorilla Glass with diamond-cut highlights and copper detailing, the metal-framed, water-resistant ROG Phone combines battle-hardened construction with a very comfortable gaming grip. The display is also one of the best in the market right now. It features an OLED 6-inch notch-free 18:9 panel that pushes a resolution of Full HD+. As a gaming smartphone, it has a refresh rate of 90 Hz, which is higher than a normal smartphone and it also has a 1 ms response time. With a wide 108.6 % DCI-P3 (sRGB 145%) color gamut, colors are incredibly vivid too, so game worlds look as glorious as they were intended. To further enhance the gaming experience, the ROG phone features DTS:X Ultra 1.0 which delivers incredibly realistic 3D audio rendering for any kind of games or virtual/augmented reality (VR/AR), featuring immersive 7.1-channel surround-sound with an enhanced bass response. On the back of the smartphones, there are two sensors which are a 12-MP one and a secondary 8-MP wide-angle camera. Although the camera is not the most attractive feature on a gaming smartphone, it captures decent quality photos, particularly with its wide-angle camera to capture wider angled photos. As for the battery, the handset features a large 4,000 mAh battery inside with support for Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4 technology and USB-PD fast-charging. It will be important for the battery to support quick charge as gaming consumes more power. Asus also included other gaming features like a built-in nickel-plated cooler, a pair of capacitive AirTriggers, and two USB-C ports. The Asus ROG phone also has multiple accessories to be picked up separately, which includes ROG Phone Case, Asus Professional Dock, GAMEVICE controller, Mobile Desktop Dock, ROG Suitcase, ASUS WiGig Display Dock and Twinview Dock.

Find out in our detailed review whether the ROG Phone does enough to score top marks.
Asus ROG Phone vs ROG Phone 2
Source: Tech Advisor English
The ROG Phone 2 is a classic second phone: an iterative improvement that doesn’t rock the boat too much. The core ethos is exactly the same, but improvements across the board do their bit to justify the new model - especially the giant battery and 120Hz display - and might even be enough to tempt an upgrade for original ROG Phone owners.

Ever since the inception of mobile phones, gaming has always been an integral part of it. Be it Nokia 1100 or the recently launched ASUS ROG phone. While the term ‘Mobile Gaming’ wasn’t taken very seriously a few years back, titles like Angry Birds, Clash of Clans, and the currently trending PUBG have changed things drastically.

Asus ROG Phone Review

At a price tag of Rs. 69,999, the Asus ROG Phone is definitely tough to recommend but keep in mind that the phone is targeted towards a very selected number of people who want a device that lets them game without issues or hitches. The ROG Phone is a cool concept and I really loved using it but the only thing pulling it back is the price. Since this is a ROG product, it is good to see Asus investing in the mobile gaming sphere as well. This is a great competitor for some good gaming phones in the future.

On the other hand, if you are simply looking for a versatile smartphone and not necessarily a "gaming" phone, then we would advise you to look elsewhere. The ROG Phone is a first generation product and a tech showcase in every sense of the word. It's aimed at a very niche and still an emerging market. It's a glorious glimpse into a great potential future mobile branch, but one that still needs some work to earn an all-around recommendation.

ASUS ROG Phone First Impressions

Experiencing the ROG phone’s capabilities such as its AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate paired with proprietary and gamer centric features such as the Air Triggers, AeroDynamic Cooler and a stat monitor is truly a game changing experience. The 90Hz refreshrate improves the overall quality of life as scrolling and browsing through apps feels smooth while it also contributes to the overall immersion when gaming. The lack of time and accessories such as the game vice and dock render our conclusion incomplete. But so far, the ASUS ROG has done a splendid job in shaping the gaming smartphone industry.

If you’re serious about mobile gaming and want to elevate your game to the next level, then it’s not hard to see the value that the ROG Phone brings to the table. That ultra-smooth display really is something else, and the gaming advantage that you get with it even without the add-ons doesn’t really seem fair.

ASUS ROG Phone Review

We have to give credit to ASUS for launching a phone such as the ROG Phone as it is not just your typical smartphone with powerful specs. It’s definitely designed for gaming which is evident in its looks, features, and accessories, and those are the things that give it an edge over its competitors. To cut it short, yes, the ROG Phone is one of the best gaming smartphones in the market and it’s not hard to imagine seeing it in the hands of mobile eSports teams.

ROG Phone review - Power Overwhelming
Source: Tech Nave English
Even without turning on its Super Saiyan mode, it's already capable of beating out most other flagships. Combine that with a thoughtful ergonomic design, innovative AirTrigger function, decent camera performance and compatible with various innovative gaming accessories, I think RM3499 is worth it for serious mobile gamers. The only thing that I dislike is the heat and fast battery drainage issue but I guess it can't be helped much. If the ROG Phone was a Pokemon, it would be a Heatran because it's a legendary fire and steel type Pokemon. This should give you an idea of how powerful the ROG Phone is.

Unfortunately, we won’t be seeing the ROG Phone here soon, perhaps never. Rumour has it that regulatory compliance costs in Australia are too high to make it a worthwhile sales proposition. Still, we can admire the product, even if we can’t use it.

ROG Phone first look – the ‘ultimate gaming phone’ from Asus

The ROG Phone looks like it’ll be a marmite device that’s perfect for gamers but a little ostentatious for everyone else. Even I, as a hardcore gamer, winced at the over the top design and slathering of RGB lighting.

Hands-on: The Asus ROG gaming phone is a beast
Source: Android Authority English
Asus isn’t known for its high-end phones. Traditionally, they’ve skirted the mid-range and attempted to bring a lot of value to the consumer at a lower price. That changed a bit with the ZenFone 5Z, which packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 among other high-end specs. While this seemed like a pretty beefy phone on its own, Asus has upped the ante with the announcement of the ROG Phone.

There's no doubt that the ROG Phone isn't going to come cheap. Given the specifications and engineering that go into it, we'd expect its price to be significantly higher than that of the ZenFone 5z. China would seem like the most obvious place to make a big push, but we're told that the ROG Phone could launch very soon in India. Given that we're still waiting for the ZenFone 5z to make it to our shores, we'll hold on till we have concrete information before getting too excited.

ASUS Gaming Smartphone: 11mm-style ROG Phone with Speed-Binned Snapdragon 845
Source: AnandTech English
ASUS producing a gaming smartphone is one of the more esoteric news stories at the Computex 2018 trade show this year. To fire a shot right across the bow of Razer, ASUS is putting its ROG credentials on display: a speed-binned Snapdragon 845 running at a higher frequency than the standard S845 smartphones, a higher-than-standard 90 Hz refresh rate display with 1ms response time and 108% DCI-P3 gamut, programmable ultrasonic AirTrigger sensors, force feedback, and additional docks for purchase. One of the key elements is that ASUS built this phone with an 11mm thickness, well beyond the 7-8mm we see on flagship smartphones today. They have put that additional volume to incredible use for extra battery, more haptics, bigger speakers, more connectivity, and it's a showcase of what we could see if other smartphone manufacturers offered a bit extra z-height.

[Review] Asus ROG Phone é o smartphone com LED que o público gamer merece
Source: Gizmodo English
No entanto, quando comparado com o Razer Phone 2, o ROG Phone é melhor em quase todos os aspectos. Tem câmeras melhores, bateria maior, os botões AirTriggers e uma coleção de acessórios caros que permitem melhorar as possibilidades de jogo que o competidor da Razer nã tem. E com luzes RGB, o ROG Phone é um abraço sem remorso à cultura gamer, para o bem ou para o mal.
Positive: High performance; powerful processor; long battery life; nice cameras; beautiful design. Negative: Relatively high price.

86.8% Asus ROG Phone 2 Smartphone Review – 120-Hz display and improved air triggers | Notebookcheck
Asus has made some significant improvements to the ROG phone, which first appeared on the scene in 2018: Instead of 90 Hz, we now have 120, instead of 8 GB of RAM, there is now 12, and there is, of course, a brand-new SoC on board. We had a chance to play a few games on it, and when it came time to give it back, we did so rather reluctantly. However, if you plan on using it for anything other than gaming such as making phone calls, surfing the web, emailing etc., then its weight of 240 g might prove to be not very easy to overlook.
Reviewing the ASUS ROG Phone II one year later
Source: Android Guys English
I’d say this is a phone you can buy and use for years upon years as long as you’re comfortable with the software situation. I never felt a slowdown nor did I see any stuttering when using the device and I used it for well over a month. It’s flawless in that regard. Even with apps getting bigger and demanding more processor resources, I still think that the ROG Phone II will keep up with newer devices many years down the road.

80% Asus ROG Phone II Review: Thick and powerful
Source: Mobile Syrup English
I've used a lot of phones over the past few years, and I was pleasantly surprised by the ROG Phone II. It works quickly, it feels smooth, and its battery is a powerhouse. Further, even though it gets warm occasionally while gaming, I didn't mind because of the attachable fan. However, it does make the phone a tad bulkier so I can see why owners wouldn’t want to carry it around.

Asus ROG Phone II camera review
Source: DxOMark English
As we noted at the very beginning of this review, the Asus ROG Phone II is targeting gamers, not photographers or videographers; even so, its imaging capabilities are not particularly bad, but just a bit disappointing when compared to its older (and less expensive) Zenfone 6 sibling. The Asus ROG Phone II’s biggest drawback is its inconsistency: there can be marked differences between photos shot in a series, and unpleasant frame shifts in video footage.

Asus ROG Phone II Audio review
Source: DxOMark English
The Asus ROG Phone II in large measure delivers on being an excellent audio performer for gamers, with plenty of volume and well-placed dual front-facing speakers that help give it a wide and accurate sound stage. So as you’d expect, gaming audio is its strong suit. The lack of bass may prove a bit frustrating for those who want booming bass to go along with its high overall volume. The downside to the high volume capability is some artifacts, including distortion at maximum volume.

If you’re an RGB-loving gamer who lives an overclocked life at 120Hz, then there’s a good chance the Razer Phone 2 will push your buttons. Given that our reviews aren’t just for gamers, though, luxuries like a 120Hz display and illuminating back aren’t enough to bump up its score beyond a 3.5. The 16:9 aspect ratio screen feels dated, it’s a bit washed out when viewed at an angle, and the camera is only passable by today’s standards. And, unlike its predecessor, it doesn’t undercut the competition in terms of price, making it a tough sell at full price for all but the most diehard mobile gamers and Razer fans.

ASUS ROG Phone II Review: A Mobile Gaming And Battery Life Beast
Source: Hot Hardware English
It's also a comparatively big and heavy handset, versus the recent crop of flagship phones. However, the ROG Phone II is unapologetically a gaming-first handset, and next to something like the Nintendo Switch, it's more nimble (as it applies to mobility). If that is what you are after, we have no reservation in recommending the ROG Phone II. On the flip side, if gaming is an afterthought, phones like the OnePlus 7T are a better bet.

It's also a comparatively big and heavy handset, versus the recent crop of flagship phones. However, the ROG Phone II is unapologetically a gaming-first handset, and next to something like the Nintendo Switch, it's more nimble (as it applies to mobility). If that is what you are after, we have no reservation in recommending the ROG Phone II. On the flip side, if gaming is an afterthought, phones like the OnePlus 7T are a better bet.

Asus ROG Phone 2 Review
Source: G Style Magazine English
What the ROG Phone 2 is, is a gaming phone in it’s second generation that will likely get better when Asus goes back to the lab for the ROG Phone 3. Remember gaming laptops when they first started out? Ugly, right? But now? So much better. I look at the ROG Phone 2 this way. Sometimes we have to appreciate unconventional technology as much as we love what we’re used to every year. At least with the unconventional stuff, there’s risk and innovation coming to play. I find the ROG Phone 2 to be a beast of a phone and perfect for what it does and who it caters to. You disagree, that’s cool. Fight me. I’m kidding.

Asus might not say so, but I do feel that the ROG Phone II is its secret weapon to break into the mainstream smartphone market. The original ROG Phone, launched last year, was a great gaming smartphone, but it never felt like a device that would drive volumes.

ASUS ROG Phone 2 review - This is seriously one badass gaming smartphone
Source: Tech Nave English
Looking back at the first ROG Phone, the ROG Phone 2 is definitely an improvement as it has fixed some of the things I didn't like back then. This includes the ridiculously good battery performance, better sound quality, and the improved Game Genie app. The AirTrigger is kinda in between as I have a problem of pressing hold because it's too sensitive, but overall, there is very little to complain about.

80% Asus ROG Phone II review: The best gaming phone in India
Source: Gadgets Now English
Asus has made a seriously impressive smartphone for gamers. We found it to be extremely capable of lag-free gaming performance for extended periods, though it does starts heating up a little after 3 hours of playing graphic-intensive games at highest-possible settings. The battery lasts easily for a day even after about 4 hours of gaming daily. The cameras gave mostly clear shots during daytime but not so good in the night. The audio performance is beyond impressive for a phone of this price. If mobile gaming is your passion and you are not the sort to compromise even slightly on the gaming specs and performance in your cherished phone, and also, are willing to go easy on the camera department which is a little letdown, especially in night-time photography, the ROG Phone II is the ideal choice for you.

The Asus ROG Phone 2 is a solid piece of hardware and is definitely the most polished and impressive gaming phone we've seen so far. It lacks some features such as waterproofing and wireless charging, but at Rs. 37,999, those things aren't big deal breakers. The higher-end version feels too expensive at nearly Rs. 60,000 even with the massive bump in storage and the bundled accessories. A price of around Rs. 50,000 would have been more accessible.

Asus ROG Phone 2 Review: One Phone for all your needs!
Source: The Mobile Indian English
Asus has left no stone unturned when it comes to designing this smartphone. The smartphone is loaded with top-notch hardware and the performance is crisp. The 120Hz display is the star of the show and so is the massive 6,000mAh battery. The camera performance is decent in daylight, though in low light it shimmers a bit. Overall, the Asus ROG Phone 2 is, without any doubt, one of the best gaming smartphones in this price range. If you are not into much of gaming, then it remains one of the best mid-premium flagship phones at your disposal.

Pick this one for its all-round performance, games-related software and hardware enhancements, immersive multimedia capabilities and a long-lasting battery. Except for its mediocre camera performance, there is nothing that you might not like in the ROG Phone II.

Evaluating the ROG Phone II as a standard flagship-class phone, this is an average one: not the best, but not bad. As with most larger phones, having such a huge screen is wonderful, and this is one of the biggest, nicest screens out there. But it's when you consider the life-changing battery stamina that it becomes truly tempting. If you can afford it and don't mind the size trade-off, it's a compelling option.

Asus’ ambitious gaming phone offers a lot of power for $899, and thanks to its accessories, it’s capable of more than almost any other phone out there. There’s an audience for this kind of package, but for most people, it probably comes with too many compromises. It’s big, heavy, and you’ll need to spend hundreds to see some of that potential as a portable gaming console come to fruition.

Asus ROG Phone II Review: Tough to go Wrong with this One!
Source: Tech PP English
Asus clearly isn’t playing around (pun intended) with the ROG Phone II in India. The smartphone has been launched for a lucrative price of just Rs. 37,999 which considering everything that it offers is quite a bargain. The ROG Phone II is spec’d up as much as any phone could be and irrespective of whether you play games on your phone or not, the ROG Phone II feels like a phone you can’t resist buying. The performance is amazing, the 120Hz display is smooth as ever, battery life is nuts and you get a ton of gaming-related features and accessories if you’re into that sort of a thing. The OnePlus 7T launches on the same evening as the day this review goes live and is expected to come with similar specifications like the Snapdragon 855+, a smooth 90Hz display and triple cameras instead of two on this. Of course, that’s more of a conventional smartphone rather than a pocket PC that went overboard. You can wait for how that turns out before you make the final decision.

All of this at a price lower than many top flagship phones. It's still a chunky monkey, but that's sort of what you get if you want all this stuff in a phone, including that huge battery. The ROG Phone 2 isn't a phone for the masses but it does exactly what it sets out to achieve - be the best gaming phone you can buy. There are cheaper ones available if it's too pricey, though.

ASUS Republic of Gamers Unveils ROG Phone II
Source: The Tech Revolutionist English
For the ultimate gaming experience, ROG Phone II can be expanded with a unique range of accessories. The existing ROG WiGig® Display Dock Plus and Mobile Desktop Dock are both supported, and there’s a new modular ROG Kunai Gamepad that provides physical console-like gamepad controls. The ROG Kunai Gamepad consists of three components — the ROG Kunai Bumper, ROG Kunai Controllers and ROG Kunai Holder. The two-part Kunai Controllers can be attached to the Kunai Holder to create a standalone gamepad, or combined with the Kunai Bumper to add physical gamepad controls to ROG Phone II itself. ROG Phone II also supports Qualcomm® aptX™, aptX HD and aptX Adaptive for low-latency high-quality audio over Bluetooth connections.

The Asus ROG Phone 2 is here and it’s a beast of an Android phone. This is the first gaming smartphone with an overclockable Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus CPU for a serious power boost. It also sports a 120Hz OLED display and a massive 6,000 mAh battery. However, all that power won’t come cheap, as the ROG Phone II is priced at $899 to start.

Asus ROG Phone vs ROG Phone 2
Source: Tech Advisor English
The ROG Phone 2 is a classic second phone: an iterative improvement that doesn’t rock the boat too much. The core ethos is exactly the same, but improvements across the board do their bit to justify the new model - especially the giant battery and 120Hz display - and might even be enough to tempt an upgrade for original ROG Phone owners.

The Asus ROG Phone was one of the first examples of a gaming phone done well – it had stacks of power, a decent camera, front speakers, left and right touch triggers that actually worked and software that levelled up gaming on it tenfold.

Asus ROG Phone 2 Hands-On Review: A Beastly Gaming Phone Ever
Source: Igeekphone English
I think users’ attitude towards Asus ROG 2 should be two extremes. People who don’t like it can find many reasons, such as big, heavy, overperformance and low-cost performance. But for those who like it, all these shortcomings can be converted into advantages: the screen is big enough, the battery life is strong, the performance is hot, the armor looks cool, and the price of 3499 yuan is quite close to the people in the ROG series. Especially in the eyes of ROG believers, it is just a loser’s eye LOGO, probably more than this price.

Asus ROG Phone 2 Tech Specs: Most Powerful Phone Yet?
Source: Team Android English
Last year’s ASUS ROG Phone felt like one of the first gaming phones that actually made sense. But for its second attempt, Asus has doubled down on everything: Between its big 6.6-inch screen, a new processor from Qualcomm, and an absolutely massive battery, Asus may have just created the most powerful Android phone on the market. Let’s start with its display. Instead of sticking with a 90Hz refresh rate, Asus selected an OLED screen with an even faster 120Hz refresh rate, which is the first of its kind among phones and apes the trend towards more responsive displays we’ve seen on gaming PCs.

The first ROG Phone was a product that mobile gamers didn’t think they needed until it launched last Computex 2018. It’s the first gaming phone that has accessories which greatly improves the gaming experience of the user. ASUS ROG saw that mobile hardware can now play games at high refresh rates and the need for accessories in a “gaming phone.” The ROG Phone 2 was created out of demand and not because Asus can just do it. According to their studies, there will be a 14% growth rate of the eSports audience with 57% of the growth coming from the Asia Pacific. This projected growth has led Asus to develop the next gaming standard of the mobile market. Does the ROG Phone 2 live up as another game-changer in the smartphone landscape? Let’s take a closer look.

The low latency, high refresh-rate AMOLED display sets it apart from smartphones sporting the same type of display namely the OnePlus 7 Pro, Razer Phone II, Blackshark II and even the iPhone XS Max. What makes the ROG Phone II unique over the rest of the smartphone market is its no-compromise approach when it comes to gaming. Regardless if you buy the ROG Phone II with accessories or not, the gameplay experience is still very immersive in its own right.

Asus ROG Phone 3

The ROG Phone 3 is the world's most powerful gaming phone so far, leading the market with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus 5G processor. The refresh rate of the display peaks at 144Hz/1ms, which was tailor-made for gamers and born to win. In addition to retaining the features of previous-generation products that were loved by players, which includes the 6000mAh battery, double front speakers and complete accessories, it also upgrades many functions, such as AirTrigger 3. The ROG Phone 3 features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus 5G processor, and the latest LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 ROM, which greatly improves the read and write efficiency of mobile phones. The clock speed is increased to 3.1 GHz, which makes the ROG Phone render games easily. The ultimate performance brings players a fast gaming experience.

The ROG Phone 3’s GameCool 3 cooling system uses a 3D liquid temperature equalization plate and a large heat sink precisely configured on the phone. Through specially designed vents, it provides ultra-high heat dissipation efficiency when the phone is operating at full speed. In an intense game process, the ROG Phone 3 easily maintains peak performance without slowing down. With the use of a new generation of AeroActive 3 aerodynamic fans, its cooling fan can bring super airflow and strengthen the heat dissipation of the processor and 5G chip area, reducing the surface temperature by as much as 4 celsius. The ROG Phone 3 is equipped with an industry-leading 144Hz/1ms AMOLED display. With a 270Hz touch sampling rate, the touch response is significantly reduced to 25 milliseconds. It also supports HDR10+ content. To ensure the best visual effects, each monitor is colour-calibrated to ensure a Delta-E value of less than 1. This monitor passes the TÜV Rheinland certification that ensures the best viewing comfort for players.

Powering the phone is a 6000mAh battery, so even the most intense battles are not subject to power restrictions. Three passive power-saving mechanisms, including a variety of custom battery modes and an exclusive sleep function, can greatly extend the interval between each charge and improve battery life. As for audio, equipped with dual front stereo speakers, the smartphone provides powerful and immersive sound effects in games. Larger speakers, magnets, and enhanced drive component amplitudes create a louder volume. With a new game mode and unique audio algorithms, players will not miss any gunshots, environmental directional sounds, footsteps or explosions. The ROG design and development team understand the key functions required by players and combine their in-depth expertise to create the ultimate e-sports phone for mobile gamers. In conclusion, the Asus ROG Phone 3 is targeted at heavy gamers with a higher budget.

Asus ROG Phone 3 Display review: Struggles with video
Source: DxOMark English
The Asus ROG Phone 3 puts in somewhat underwhelming performance overall, and although gamers will appreciate its touch accuracy and smoothness, they may be a tad disappointed at its frame drops, stutters, and handling of aliasing. However, for non-gaming use cases, it performs better than its Black Shark rival, which may make it a reasonable choice not just for gamers, but for other users as well.

The ROG Phone 3 is a pretty impressive piece of technology, rocking a powerful chip, a huge screen, and a “gamer” aesthetic, which some might find cheesy, though it will have its audience. I, personally, like the RGB light and the techy futuristic look of its shell, and I am sure others will, too.

ASUS ROG Phone 3 review - Return of the King
Source: Tech Nave English
There's very little to complain about the ROG Phone 3. It's a phone with a simple but futuristic design, superb battery life, great mobile gaming performance, and useful AirTriggers. That said, perhaps the only downside is the price itself but it depends on which variant you're getting. The one we reviewed costs RM4499, followed by RM3799 for the 12GB + 512GB variant and finally, RM2999 for the Strix Edition which uses SD 865 and 8GB + 256GB which is an honestly good price for a gaming smartphone beast.

One positive of ASUS’s ROG Phone III SKU offering is that the base “Strix” model features just the regular Snapdragon 865, which if it performs similarly to other devices in the market, shouldn’t have the same compromises between performance and heat. ASUS also gives you the option to tune-down the phone for better thermals, but then again, what’s the point in getting it?

Asus ROG Phone 3 review: Entering the Republic of Gamers
Source: Exhibit.tech English
With a starting price around the Rs 50,000 mark, the Asus ROG Phone 3 is definitely not a casual buy. But what you get for that kind of money is one of the best gaming setups in the market, in a size that fits in your pocket. It lacks wireless charging which is a drawback in this price range and overall the ROG Phone 3 is best used for gaming only. The phone is a little large and heavy to carry around, but ardent gamers will overlook these parameters easily. Personally, if I were to pick this phone I would give up all my gaming paraphernalia. But that’s just me…

There is no phone in the market at present that can match the ROG Phone 3’s gaming capabilities, and the experience only goes north with value-added features that come along. However, it may not be a good deal if you need a mainstream smartphone that you can use only sometimes for gaming. Do check out the ROG Phone 3 though before making a purchase decision.

85% ROG Phone 3 Review – When You Just Cant Have Enough

Initially, I thought the ROG Phone 3 would be a rushed job as the ROG Phone 2 was still relevant and I didn’t want just some itsy bitsy improvements on the update. But as you can see, the ROG Phone 3 has made its debut with a big bang, just like how the series has done in the past years. The performance broke our records took top position in every single test, making it the ultimate gaming smartphone that you can buy today.

The final verdict for ROG Phone devices has always been the same in our view. Much like a super car is hardly the most comfortable, convenient or value-centric vehicle you can get, the ROG Phone 3 is hardly the best all-round smartphone, nor the best value proposition out there. What it is, though, is the absolute best at its target niche - gaming.

The ROG Phone 3 is a pretty impressive piece of technology, rocking a powerful chip, a huge screen, and a “gamer” aesthetic, which some might find cheesy, though it will have its audience. I, personally, like the RGB light and the techy futuristic look of its shell, and I am sure others will, too.

The ROG 3 Phone looks like a top-notch phone for gamers, with powerful hardware complemented by strong audio, a buttery smooth display, genuinely useful AirTrigger buttons, and thoughtful software. Depending on how much Asus decides to charge for it when it comes out in September, it could wind up being a solid phone for non-gamers, as well. We'll update this story with more testing and information as it comes out, so make sure to check back.

Hands on: Asus ROG 3 review
Source: Techradar English
The Asus ROG 3 is a fantastic phone, with top-tier specs and perks that even non-gamers will love, like a 6,000mAh battery and smooth 144Hz display. Its unique features, like AirTriggers and clip-on accessories, could improve anyone’s gaming, though they’ll have to fiddle with the software to activate them. On the other hand, its gamer-centric software and looks won’t appeal to all, and its cameras leave something to be desired. It’s the most mainstream gamer phone to come out in awhile, but typical consumers may value photography over playtime. For the gamers out there, though, there’s no better machine.

80% ASUS ROG Phone 3 review: Absolute unit
Source: Android Central English
The ASUS ROG Phone 3 is built for mobile gamers who crave performance, silky-smooth frame rates, and thunderous audio. As a result, it absolutely flies through any task you could possibly throw at it — including the most demanding mobile titles. But this gaming performance comes with some compromises. It's heavy and bulky, lacks water resistance, and includes a camera setup that's mediocre for the price.

Asus ROG Phone 3 Audio Review
Source: DxOMark English
Not only does the Asus ROG Phone 3 surpass its predecessor — sometimes by far — in almost every category and rank second-to-best overall, it also shares first place for recording, thanks to a consistent overall performance across all use cases, and outstanding spatial results when filming videos. Despite noticeable bass resonances, audio played back through its speakers demonstrates good overall tonal balance, good dynamics, and good intelligibility even at minimum volumes. All in all, ROG Phone’s third generation seriously upped its audio game, achieving true flagship level.

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.
80% Asus ROG Phone 5 review
Source: Techradar English
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.

70% 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. However, if taking good pictures matters to you, the ROG Phone 5 is just okay. Its night mode falls flat, however. The photos are by no means bad, but I prefer the ones produced by other similarly-priced phones like the Pixel 5, iPhone 12, and Galaxy S21 Plus. Buy the ROG Phone 5 if you want a mammoth battery that’s incredibly difficult to kill or if you want the peak gaming performance available on Android. It's a true marvel of engineering to be sure. And you get some extra RGB and gamer flair for your money (if that's your thing), which helps the phone stand out from the crowd.

Asus ROG Phone 5 review: A gaming phone with little compromise

A phone built for gamers, offering loads of power, fantastic audio, and customisation of controls to give players the edge. But it's also a super phone outside of gaming: great for entertainment, with a smooth running system, although it can't quite match the camera offering of some big-name flagship rivals.

At a starting price of Rs 49,999, the ROG Phone 5 is a pretty solid smartphone. It offers almost everything a gaming smartphone should offer without sacrificing much on other aspects like designs and features. At the same time, it misses out on something which also matters to people who are willing to pay this hefty price. For instance, the camera should have been better than the previous generation.

Asus continues its focus on gaming phones by releasing the ROG Phone 5, the fourth smartphone in the series. As much as the company may have tried to make the ROG Phone 5 for everyone, it still remains a gaming phone first, with most of the features being of little to no use for non-gamers.

Source: The Indian Express English
Designing and selling a gaming phone is far from easy, and Asus knows it well. The ROG Phone 5 tries hard to make an impression with features like a 144Hz screen, virtual controls, louder speakers, a DAC-powered headphone jack, better cooling and so on. In a way, the ROG Phone 5 comes close to defining a dedicated gaming smartphone. That said, Asus’ flagship phone too comes with flaws. There is no water resistance rating and the phone lacks a microSD slot and wireless charging. It’s also large and heavy, plus the camera is average. If you want a premium gaming smartphone that is slightly different both in looks and appeals and can stomach Rs 57,999, this deserves a look.

That being said, the ROG Phone 5 comes with its fair share of compromises too, and from its sizable form factor to its sub-par cameras and lack of any sort of weather-proofing, the smartphone will make prospective buyers second-guess their purchase decision.

ASUS ROG Phone 5 Review

Should you upgrade from the ROG Phone 3? I don’t see the need yet as the Snapdragon 865+ is still powerful by today’s standards. Unless you want the new design, Snapdragon 888, and faster charging rate, other than that, maybe you should wait for the ROG Phone 6. But even then, if you decide to pull the trigger on the ROG Phone 5, you wouldn’t regret it.

Asus ROG Phone 5 has the longest battery life of any Android phone we've ever tested
Source: CNet English
The ROG Phone 5 is a fourth-gen gaming phone. ROG stands for the Republic of Gamers. And this year, Asus knocked it out of the park. This isn't a major redesign but rather a round of significant tweaks that make this phone another step closer to an "ideal" that Asus has been chasing since 2018. Every improvement from the Gorilla Glass Victus on the screen and updated speakers to relocating cooling elements to the middle of the phone are done with the goal of making the ultimate gaming phone.

80% Asus ROG Phone 5 review: Mobile gaming doesn’t get better than this
Source: Expert Reviews English
With just a handful of niggles, the ROG Phone 5 is no doubt the most impressive gaming phone we’ve ever reviewed. With a handful of well-thought-out gaming features, as well as unbeatable performance in a variety of Play Store titles, the ROG Phone 5 is definitely worth a consideration if you’re aren’t keen on the mainstream. It’s a bit of a shame that the excellent Kunai GamePad and AeroActive Cooler are sold separately, though, and that there isn’t a preorder offer at launch. Pair the ROG Phone 5 with these accessories, and there’s really no better mobile gaming experience at the moment, especially if you’re dreaming of becoming the next mobile eSports superstar.

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.

ASUS ROG Phone 5 hands-on: Quality audio for mobile gamers
Source: Engadget English
It's only been a little over seven months since ASUS launched its ROG Phone 3 gaming smartphone, but the company is already releasing a follow-up model to join Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 party. The latest series is dubbed ROG Phone 5 (skipping the "4" due to tetraphobia; you obviously don't want to associate gaming with death), and while it may appear to merely don some minor cosmetic changes, the innards have been completely revamped for better heat dissipation, weight distribution and audio performance. As a bonus, there's also a Pro model plus a limited edition ROG Phone 5 Ultimate, with the latter boasting a whopping 18GB of RAM.

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.

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 faces competition from newcomers like Lenovo and existing brands like Red Magic and Black Shark, yet they’ve still managed to pump out the best gaming smartphone year-on-year. While the ROG Phone 5 may not be the most affordable gaming smartphone you can pick up this year, there’s little doubt it’ll be the best one you can get. Every component and software feature of the ROG Phone 5 was designed for gaming, and there are even bells and whistles like the ROG Vision that you won’t find on any other smartphone. The accessories are all top of their class, too. The ROG Kunai 3 remains unmatched in its versatility, and the AeroActive Cooler 5 trounces the similar coolers you can pick up from other gaming brands what with its extra ports, buttons, and integrated kickstand.

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.
