Best gaming phone 2022: best mobile performance
8. Asus ROG Phone 5 – Best for Accessories
The Asus ROG Phone 5 might not have mass appeal, with a bulky, gamer-like design, but that’s not the point here.
Gaming is the priority here, and Asus has taken matters into their own hands with a 144Hz AMOLED display, dual 3000mAh batteries, last year’s top-end Snapdragon 888, and up to 16GB of RAM. It can handle just about any game available on Android right now, with enough power to future-proof the phone for quite some time – all at a cheaper price than big-name flagships.
The gaming experience is further enhanced by haptic triggers built right into the side of the ROG Phone 5, and if you want to take things a step further, the plethora of official accessories – including Nintendo Switch-esque Kunai 5 controllers and fan powered The AeroActive Cooler 5 cooling system should be just right for you.
They’re not gaming related, but even the cameras are decent, which is unusual for a gaming phone. We can only really complain about the size and weight, measuring in at 10.3mm thin and 238g , but it is not so applicable in the gaming sector.
The ROG Phone 6 has since launched, but we haven’t reviewed it yet – and we’ll update this table once we have it.
