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. The air triggers work with little to no latency while the addition of trigger buttons to the AeroActive cooler is definitely going to shave some milliseconds off your aim-shoot game. The display offers an astounding refresh rate of 144Hz on an OLED panel, which is very impressive. the colour accuracy is also pretty good on two of the four display profiles. Unfortunately, the ROG Phone 5 fails to be more than a gaming phone, with its mostly average camera, lack of IP rating and the fact that the hardware that powers the ROG Phone 5 can now be found in other smartphones as well. Given the rise in popularity of mobile-based gaming tournaments, the ROG Phone 5 makes perfect sense for the competitive gamer or even a casual gamer for that matter. But for anyone who was looking for a well-rounded package, the ROG Phone 5 ain't the one.Read Full Review
