  • - That gesture stuff is really cool.

  • I honestly thought that smartphone innovation was dead

  • for years now.

  • It's never even occurred to me that I could get excited

  • about a phone again.

  • And then, I saw the Asus ROG Phone 5,

  • and in an instant, I knew that I couldn't just

  • make a quick short circuit video about this thing.

  • Yeah, it's really heavy.

  • And a few of its party tricks will get old pretty quick,

  • but there is so much raw innovation in here

  • that I just need to tell you more about it.

  • Just like I need to tell you more

  • about our sponsors, Seasonic.

  • Never skimp on getting a quality power supply

  • for your next build.

  • Check out, Seasonic to find their award-winning

  • power supplies and try out their wattage calculator

  • to see which one will suit your needs at the link below.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Asus really knows how to package a phone

  • in a way that's unique and yet not obnoxious.

  • The Ultimate edition ROG Phone 5

  • comes in a gameresque, squared off triangular prism

  • that folds out to reveal compartments

  • for both the phone itself and its accessories,

  • including the optional AeroActive Cooler 5

  • that clips onto the phone and gets its power

  • from pogo pins hidden under the rubber gasket on the side.

  • Note that I said optional,

  • the chassis is solid aluminum

  • with a copper vapor chamber cooler inside,

  • so there's plenty of thermal mass to soak up heat,

  • meaning that a fan might not be necessary for everyone.

  • Add in the twin 3,000 mAh batteries though,

  • and it means you've got one husky boy.

  • The exterior is reassuringly gamer,

  • albeit with a much flatter back panel

  • than previous generation ROG phones.

  • All we've got back here are the camera bump,

  • which is barely even a bump by modern standards,

  • and wait, is that a display?

  • Yes, yes it is.

  • There's a black and white OLED display,

  • that's one of the benefits of the Ultimate edition,

  • while the regular ROG Phone 5 gets an RGB logo instead.

  • As for Pro users,

  • you guys actually get a full color OLED panel

  • because Asus do be extra like that.

  • And every skew gets an extra USB type C port on the side

  • for landscape docking, HDMI output

  • if you wanted to use your phone as a controller

  • while playing on the big screen or for charging.

  • Across the whole range, top shelf specs are consistent.

  • The Ultimate comes with a whopping 512 gigs

  • of UFS 3.1 storage and 18 gigabytes of LPDDR5 memory,

  • while the rest of the range boasts equally performant,

  • but smaller configs.

  • And naturally, it's running the latest Snapdragon 888 SOC

  • with all of the good that comes with that.

  • That means better performance across the board

  • compared to last gen, built-in 5G and Wi-Fi 6E,

  • which should help improve throughput

  • in dense areas like classrooms and apartments,

  • along with massive improvements to image processing

  • and AI performance.

  • As for the CPU and GPU performance bump,

  • it's relatively incremental, unless of course you're coming

  • from a device that's two years old or more.

  • But, support for variable rate shading,

  • which lowers image quality in your peripheral vision,

  • could result in some significant perceived gains in games.

  • It also has some non Snapdragon specific bells and whistles,

  • including dual SIM support,

  • quad microphones, and a reconfigured Wi-Fi antenna array

  • to improve performance in landscape mode.

  • Also, you headphone jack diehards are gonna love this.

  • It has a seriously chatted out DAC and Amp configuration

  • for listening to music on the go, with wired headphones.

  • How does the water bottle

  • from lttstore.com figure in here?

  • That's okay, it doesn't matter, lttstore.com.

  • Brandon described the rear shooter as solid,

  • not class-leading, but solid.

  • And in most of our shots, Asus ROG Phone 5

  • easily outdoes the Pixel 5 in all areas but one, sharpness.

  • There's a very aggressive smoothing algorithm

  • being applied here that sometimes wipes out distant texts

  • and fine details, and it seems like a Asus is compensating

  • with a stronger sharpening filter than we'd like to see.

  • Auto white balance and auto exposure were bang on most

  • of the time though, with true to life colors compared

  • to the too warm Pixel and too cold iPhone.

  • And fake bouquet was another situation

  • where the ROG Phone surprisingly dominated the Pixel

  • with a less aggressive effect that results

  • in much fewer processes errors.

  • That probably comes down to the Snapdragon 888 actually,

  • now that I think of it.

  • Moving around to the other side, the 6.78 inch display

  • has no whole punch for the 24 megapixel front camera,

  • and it's even got an under screen fingerprint sensor.

  • So in theory, with its 144 Hertz refresh rate

  • and full screen 800 nit brightness,

  • this thing should fall squarely in great status.

  • As for in practice, well, actually it's great.

  • The Corning Victus front glass

  • means better scratch resistance and impact resistance,

  • compared to their previous generation products.

  • Though in the real world, still be careful

  • 'cause you're gonna end up with micro scratches

  • if you got abrasive pocket lint.

  • And while I'd love to see Dolby Vision,

  • HDR 10+ support means that basically any mobile

  • or web content that you'd wanna enjoy

  • is going to be able to take advantage

  • of the bright whites and inky blacks of this panel.

  • Even if you might be getting a slightly different master

  • than your iPhone toting buddies.

  • The speakers, wow, I can't say enough about the speakers.

  • Frankly, they are amazing,

  • just like previous ROG phones have been.

  • They are large and in charge, they're front facing,

  • they have excellent stereo imaging

  • as well as a surprising amount of mid range

  • and low end performance.

  • Like it's not gonna replace the DAC and Amp

  • and a good pair of headphones, but it's much better

  • than you'd expect from a smartphone.

  • Though of course, this is an ROG smartphone,

  • so we better talk about G.

  • Now as a casual when it comes to mobile gaming,

  • I'm not gonna and impress you guys with my sick headshots

  • in PUBG mobile.

  • But what I can do, is talk about how the tech in here

  • can improve your gaming performance.

  • High refresh rate displays like the 144 Hertz one here

  • mean that all else being equal, like network latency,

  • for example, you will be getting more up-to-date information

  • on your screen compared to your opponents.

  • But not all high refresh rate displays are created equal.

  • What stands out here is the extremely high,

  • 300 Hertz pulling rate.

  • Now my preferred gaming inputs in order,

  • are keyboard, mouse, controller then touchscreen.

  • So obviously, I'd prefer to use a third-party controller

  • or a Asus's own Kunai accessory.

  • Get subscribed by the way

  • because we've got another mobile device

  • with controller built-in that we will be covering soon.

  • But if I have to use a touch screen,

  • I'm gonna want one that doesn't feel floaty

  • as I'm sliding across the surface.

  • As for how the ROG Phone feels,

  • well, it's pretty much instantaneous.

  • Asus rates their touch latency at 24.3 milliseconds,

  • and while that might sound like a lot,

  • I mean that's multiple frames at even 60 Hertz,

  • that is end to end touch to photon latency.

  • And it's still high compared

  • to what you can achieve with a wired gaming mouse

  • on a desktop.

  • For a mobile touch device, it feels really responsive,

  • especially when it's paired with the 144 Hertz display mode

  • rather than the more power friendly 60 Hertz one.

  • Speaking of which, to pivot for a moment,

  • the panel tech that ACS is using here is Samsung's E4 OLED

  • and this is one of the things that I wanna

  • take a moment to appreciate about Asus.

  • That information is right there in the reviewer's guide.

  • Now, this phone might be an absolute unit.

  • Somebody looks at you wrong on the bus,

  • you can drop them with your f'n phone.

  • It's not
