ROG Phone 5

Unboxings and reviews are up concerning the ROG Phone 5 series. Today, we finally get the last piece of the puzzle — price and availability details and the Philippines.

Quick recap before we dive right into the details on why you clicked here in the first place. The ROG Phone 5 series is composed of three smartphones: the ROG Phone 5, ROG Phone 5 Pro, and ROG Phone 5 Ultimate.
All three members of the ROG Phone 5 series have in common — they’re all spec monsters. They are powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 with Qualcomm Game Quick Touch that gives up to a 20 percent increase in touch responsiveness and lower latency. There’s also a 35 percent increase in GPU performance and 25 percent in CPU performance. These are numbers based on ASUS ROG’s tests.

A performance display

The series has a 6.78” Samsung AMOLED display. For the refresh rate, it’s a whopping 144Hz and has a touch sampling rate of 300Hz. That’s super smooth and ultra-low touch latency.

The screen is also made with the toughest Corning Gorilla Glass Victus. It also has an always-on HDR tech that improves non-HDR visuals.

Battery king

The ROG Phone has always been a long-lasting device. That remains true with the ROG Phone 5. It has a 6,000mAh battery but now, ROG also made a few tweaks so it saves energy when it needs to.

Other improvements include an upgraded GameCool5 system and a new performance manager on Armoury Crate.

New to ROG Phone 5 Pro and Ultimate — ROG Vision

Do you remember the AniMe Matrix on the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14? The ROG Phone 5 Pro and Ultimate have something like that. It’s called the ROG Vision.

It functions similarly in that it gives another layer of personalization through an extra display at the back of the phone but this one isn’t built with mini-LED lights.

The ROG Phone 5 Pro features a color ROG Vision display, while the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate has a monochrome version.
