Also, Asus Rog Phone 5 has been included with a whopping 16GB RAM and 256GB of internal storage for managing background tasks. The chipset is clubbed with Adreno 660 GPU for fulfilling multiple functions at once, including maximum graphics settings to resource-intensive games.

    Speaking about the overall feat, the smartphone company has managed to impart an outstanding balance of energy efficiency and performance to Asus Rog Phone 5.  

    The premium-range device from Asus has been stuffed with a triple-rear camera setup, featuring a 64MP main wide-angle camera featuring Quad Bayer technology, 13MP ultra-wide camera and a 5MP Macro camera. The rear camera setup is capable of leaving you overwhelmed in terms of high-quality photos. Speaking about the selfie camera on the front side, it’s housing a 24MP sensor, which is truly remarkable. The front camera allows you to capture top-notch pictures and doesn’t leave any corner unfulfilled. For those who love photography, they will have a great experience while using Asus Rog Phone 5.

    Asus has retained the massive 6000 mAh battery, which is truly remarkable for a gaming smartphone of this calibre. Not only this, Asus has provided Quick Charge 5.0 and PD charging with Asus Rog Phone 5 for quickly refilling such a giant battery. There is a 65W charger in the box as well, which ads more jewels to this device and makes it the ultimate choice for gaming enthusiasts.  

    Asus Rog Phone 5 is a smartphone that is smartly specked by Asus and the 6000mAh battery is just the icing on the cake. The octa-core processor should be plenty for running the heavy applications along with such a huge RAM. Further, the 5G connectivity and the triple-rear camera setup along with the selfie camera also favours this device. In a nutshell, Asus Rog Phone 5 is a treat for both gaming enthusiasts and photography lovers.
