Android version and market relevance

In the short description of the new smartphone Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate we point out the key characteristics for each smartphone. Firstly, it is an actuality in the market. This model was announced by the company Asus in March 2021. Secondly, this concept of adequacy in the market at the moment. We determine this according to the software version on which the smartphone is running and updating. So, “out of the box” Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate works on Android 11 and has not received until now no updates to the more recent version of the software. In this case, we advise you to avoid buying models that do not receive software updates. Look at the others smartphones of 2021.

Of the features that not all Android smartphones have today, we separately single out support for two SIM cards and the ability to work in 5G networks with a maximum speed of 100 Mb/s. So Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate is a dual-smartphone, so you can combine in one device just two phones. This, of course, is convenient and makes you look more closely at this model. In addition, this model works in the fifth generation networks (5G), and this means that the speed of mobile Internet will be as high as home Wi-Fi (maximum 100 Mb/s). And there is another plus — the smartphone’s battery will be slower to use up the charge and your phone will work longer until the next charge. We have collected all smartphones with support for 5G networks on a specific page in the catalog, so that it is more convenient for you to choose and search for a new smartphone.

Screen, body and battery

6.78-inch AMOLED touchscreen occupies almost the entire area of the front panel of the smartphone Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate. It also stands out from other models on the market with its thin bezels between the outer edges of the body and the screen. An edge-to-edge screen covers from 80% to 90% of the front panel.. Body thickness 10.3 mm puts the battery in it in capacity 6 000 mAh. As a result, these three important characteristics give us such an idea of the device — huge smartphone with very thick case and very capacious battery.

The most interesting thing is that the screen in the Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate has a refresh rate of 144 Hz. The higher the value, the better. And this is very important in mobile games, because the high refresh rate makes the graphics smoother in the game. All smartphones with a display refresh rate of 144 Hz are collected in our catalog.

On video reviews, look in more detail about this feature of the case, as the additional 0-inch ROG Vision monochrome PMOLED-screen, which shows additional functions of the smartphone. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

An excellent camera with multiple lenses (64 MP Wide + 13 MP UltraWide + 5 MP Macro) was received by Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate. And now you can definitely stand out with your photos among your friends. At least, thanks to the fact that two or more cameras will help you shoot excellent portraits with the Bokeh effect, and take photos with zooming, without much loss in image quality. And on the front of the smartphone we see a camera with one lens: 24 MP Wide. This is a very good camera to take selfie. You will want to do them all the time and publish to the Instagram :)

Processor and Internal Memory

And write a few words about the performance of Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate. Of course, the very first thing that will be discussed is the processor. The model received a 8-core processor Snapdragon 888 (5 nm).

The second performance characteristic in our opinion is the amount of RAM. The Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate has 18 installed on the RAM.

The built-in flash memory of this model has the volume 512 GB

Price for Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate: buy or not to buy?

If you are looking for a camera phone, then Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate is just what you need. If you need a smartphone with a huge touch screen, then this is just the real phablet! You can buy! If you are looking for selfie smartphone (smartphone with a very cool front camera for shooting selfie), then this is exactly what you were looking for. Do not pass by Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate, you should like it.

Let′s step back from the lyrics and talk about money. Selling Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate will begin in May 2021 at a price of $1570. There are analogues of this model from its price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500”, you can choose any smartphone for the same money.

We recommend buying a new smartphone only from trusted sellers. And preferably before buying the phone hold in your hand, to feel the dimensions of his hand and look at all of its external signs (build quality and materials). Then turn it on and check the touch screen (there should be no “broken” pixels, color gradient), open several built-in applications to assess the speed and smoothness of the interface. Be sure to launch the “Camera” application and take a few photos and videos, then view them (there should be no artifacts or traces of dust on the lens or glass).
