âThe ROG Phone 5 is a great smartphone, combining a high-end display, great specs, a decent camera, long battery life and fantastic stereo speakers. Its styling won’t suit everyone – and it’s very similar to the ROG Phone 3, which got a more limited release – but if you can hack its size and style, and want a fantastic portable media player. and gaming device, you are in a rush to find more for less, âKronfli wrote in his ROG Phone 5 review.
The ROG Phone 5 had to beat some pretty stiff competition to claim this year’s crown, with top-of-the-line handsets including the Lenovo Legion Phone Duel 2, Galaxy S21 Ultra, OnePlus 9 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max. and the Sony Xperia 1 III.
