Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate Review

Score: 94 / 100

Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate is a top-level phone launched back in 2021, featuring a Octa-Core processing unit running at 2840 MHz, a big size 6.8" screen, and two cameras, a 64 megapixels back camera and a 24 megapixels front camera.

Asus decided to sell this cellphone with a high-tech Octa-Core processing unit clocking at 2.84 GHz, packed into the Snapdragon 888 system chip and a huge 18 GB of RAM memory. The Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate counts with a 512 GB awesome internal memory and whereas it doesn't include a slot for an external memory card, it it is more than enough to store tons of applications, games, songs, photos and videos without having to worry about how much memory is left.

This cellphone is a bit heavy for a device this size, weighting 8.4 oz. Although the Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate is very slim and comfortable it's not as thin as many other phones out there, with a thickness of 0.41". This cellphone is quite a compact phone, considering it presents a 6.8" screen and it has just 6.8" long and 3.04 inches wide. This cellphone is for sale in color matte white. The Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate body design is a combination of Glass (Corning Gorilla Glass 3) and Aluminum .

This phone has two cameras, a 64 mega-pixels back camera and a 24 megapixels front camera. Its back camera has an aperture of f/1.8 so it can capture detailed pictures even in poor lighting conditions. This device can also capture videos in 7680x4320 at 30 fps, and slow-motion videos in (HD) (1280x720) up to 480 fps. To complete the camera, it also counts with auto-focus.

Asus packed this phone with an amazing 6.8 inches display, and a 1080 x 2448 resolution, providing this cellphone with a high level graphic quality.

This phone includes wifi connectivity (which it can provide to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 5G insanely fast connection type, 4G (LTE-A) super quick internet connection and also HSPA+ connectivity (which is a lower speed 4G technology) and 3G fast connection type, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone uses 2 Nano SIM cards so it is able to work with two different phone lines or carriers in the same phone.

This cellphone packs a high capacity 6000 mAh Nano SIM non-removable battery that can keep it running for many hours without having to charge it at all. An issue to consider is that the Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate's battery is not removable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to have trouble holding its charge, although with such a big battery you will probably replace this phone before that happens.

This cellphone also comes with many cool characteristics as Fingerprint Sensor, NFC, Bluetooth and GPS Geolocation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

It doesn't matter whether you want it for work, want this device majorly for social networks and internet browsing, want a gaming device or want it to take plenty of photographs, this cellphone is probably a great choice for you.
