I mean this phone is battery king, the best of the best in android world, and for those who don't know what bypass charging is, it's simple but awesome hardware/software feature, allow charger to charge right to the components and not to battery. Which means you can game for longer without loosing single percent of battery. Performance is like if you heat japanese knife and then swing it through big chunk of lard. It's that smooth. Speakers are the best, even that high end DAC. Just dream. Those air triggers are awesome, never played that good before. There are three things somebody may dislike on this phone. Cameras are meh, for the price you can find wayyy better but this is gaming phone. IR blaster is not that big of a deal breaker but what can be deal breaker is no IP rating or wireless charging.

Pros

  • Bypass charging
  • Sweet speakers
  • Air triggers
  • Top of the line performance
  • That smooth 144Hz refresh rate
  • 3,5 headphone jack
  • Awesome high end DAC
  • 65 watt charging

Cons

  • No IP rating
  • No wireless charging
  • No OIS
  • Cameras are okay ish for the price
  • Doesn't have LTPO technology

Teléfono solo para jugar, no para uso cotidiano

Gabriel

8 / 10

El teléfono cumple sus funciones, con sus 6000 mA la batería te puede durar bastante en videojuegos, y si lo usas de forma cotidiana sin jugar tanto (sesiones de 30-40 minutos cada 2 o 3 horas) te dura todo el día de 100% a unos 30-20% a la noche, esto varía de lo que juegues ya que algunos exigen más que otro claramente, pero si no juegas nada y solo usas aplicaciones normales (facebook, whatsapp, tiktok, Instagram) te durará más que eso.

Pros

  • Los air-triggers que son super configurables en cualquier videojuego incluso en aplicaciones normales se pueden usar (todo esto desde el Armoury Crate que trae el dispositivo)
  • Su game genie que permite tener muchas ventajas en videojuegos
  • El cargador de 65 watts viene incluído en la caja en todas las versiones y no hay que comprarlo aparte
  • Tiene un altavoz estereo lo cual hace que ver series o escuchar música sea un encanto
  • Tasa de refresco a 144ghz que usarla en aplicaciones de uso cotidiano sea hermoso de ver

Cons

  • Su cámara trasera sobresale de la superficie del dispositivo por lo cual si se apoya sobre una superficie sin protector el teléfono queda inclinado y si se llega a caer al suelo la cámara es la que amortiguaría todo el golpe
  • Al jugar ciertos juegos se puede calentar pero esto se debe más al procesador con el que viene (Snapdragon 888) el cual tiene problemas sobre temperatura
  • Podría decir que el ventilador que viene aparte en la versión normal es casi obligatorio por el tema de la temperatura (genshing impact lleva al teléfono hasta un 51°C lo cual es una barbaridad)

3.has an IPS screen
Asus ROG Phone 5
IPS (In-Plane Switching) is a technology used for LCDs. It was designed to overcome the main limitations of conventional twisted nematic TFT displays: limited viewing angles and low-quality color reproduction. PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a type of IPS screen developed by Samsung, with increased brightness and lower production costs.
Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
