Asus ROG Phone 5 is a gaming phone that rivals Samsung’s S21 Asus ROG 5

The Asus ROG Phone 5 is the brand’s latest gaming phone, but a ton of little improvements add up to the most powerful Android smartphone released yet in 2021 – which can even outperform the Samsung Galaxy S21 in some benchmarks.

That’s no surprise given the phone packs some monstrous specs: all versions of the phone pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset and the basic model can have 8GB, 12GB, or 16GB of RAM. There’s also two pricier editions of the phone: the Asus ROG 5 Pro, which comes in 16GB of RAM, and the limited-run Asus ROG 5 Ultimate, featuring a world-first 18GB of RAM.
