ASUS has made a lot of ROG Phones since they first launched in 2018, and with each revision, it comes closer to perfection… Can innovation really keep moving fast enough to keep a smartphone interesting?

I really want to buy these gaming phones, but they keep putting low res screens in them. It's incredibly annoying. Yes, at these screen sizes you CAN tell the difference, (you can actually see pixels when reading text with phones this big), and batteries are so huge now that battery life savings isn't nearly as legitimate of an argument as it used to be. Midrange 400 dollar phones from 5 years ago had 1440p displays and now we are supposed to accept 1080p in phones that cost twice as much? That's gaslighting as far as I'm concerned. These are not "top shelf specs", not with such a low 2012 display resolution. Anyone who argues in favor of taking such a step back either has bad eyes or has been gaslit into paying more for less.

6:46 What's the touch polling rate outside of games? Wish someone would test it. E.g. The Mi11 touts 480hz but that's in games only; in normal usage it's 240hz. There are other examples where the real polling rate is half of the advertised maximum like the S20 and FindX2Pro. So since the ROG Phone 5 touts 300hz, I wonder if it's only 150hz when scrolling in menus and whether that 24.3ms touch latency applies to all apps or only games.

About Asus committing to updates, I have an Asus Zenfone 5Z (5 in some regions) and I have gotten 2 major updates, from Android 8 up until Android 10. I am satisfied with what I've gotten from Asus on the software side and their major revamp of their software was quite nice to see, both on ZenUI and the ROGUI.

Asus needs to do better with regards to it's phones releasing in the USA as well. Back with the ROG Phone 2, they released it first in china (which is fine) but it took them over 6 months to bring it to the USA and even when they finally did it was DOUBLE the price.

Is Asus doing a bad job with communication or what's the deal with almost every review/video missing the 8gb RAM, 128gb version of the regular 5? That one is 799€ which comes to just 945 USD. That's pretty nuts considering basically everything else is the same. Also many channels/sites seem to be under the impression that the Ultimate edition is the only white version which is false. There's a white version of the regular 5 too but the pro only comes in black as far as I know.

Unfortunately fails the JerryRigEverything test. Still the stereo speakers and gaming features are winning me back, However I didn't buy a ROG Phone 3 because the accessories weren't available in Australia and that's the entire point. I'm on a Pixel 2 XL and been desperate to upgrade for years. The ROG has been the only one to come close. The camera is now decent enough, since I got Sony WF-1000XM3 I no longer care about the stereo jack but it's good to have back. However I am concerned about longevity, my PC gets updates and so does my Pixel Phone, the only reason I need to upgrade my Pixel is due to wanting new features better controller, more performance and battery life. However if I could replace my current battery easier I'd just keep my current phone, so now I'd seriously buy a phone with a replacable battery again. Rooting a phone for upgrades is an important feature to have but not one I will use as it breaks being able to pay things with your phone or watch unfortunately. Still Google has broken that many things I almost prefer to be on the original version the phone came with they always tend to be the best, however there's probably a few fixes I couldn't do without. I'm less of a fan with Android updates than Windows updates these days. Up until Kitkat it was all improvements since then it's been change for the sake of change and taking away features that everyone loved for Google inferior simplistic way of how everyone should use a phone.
