Anonymous, 17 Apr 2021Get a radio for 2 dollars dudeLol please, no way in H*ll I'm going to buy another device just to do one thing.
It's a real shame that this year's ROG Phone doesn't have FM Radio support, or else it would have been a solid alternative to the LG V60 despite not having a flagship-grade camera.
DQ, 17 Mar 2021Not only that the 5 II with Dolby Atmos turned on sounds very nice and clean. Obviously not on... more Cause your not an RoG 5 user . So you don't know the real thing . Just saying. Cause I'm have rog 5 right now . Not that fragile tho.
ROG phone from its 2nd gen onwards are great phones. The only problem I found was the usb-C connector at the bottom of the phone. the usb c connector on my rog2 had burned twice when small droplets of water gets into it. replaced it twice. not sure Asus had look into that in ROG5 design on it
8 hours of endurance rating difference between 144Hz and 60Hz? I'm just gonna leave in Auto. If there is a feature where we can only allow a certain app to run at 144Hz, I would definitely welcome that. I don't need 144Hz all the time, I only use the high screen refresh rate during mobile gaming and that's it. For pretty much all the time, I just stick to 60Hz.
Sadly this phone is incredibly fragile, the weak point between the batteries and no lengthwise ridged support means it folds like a house of cards. If you never intend on putting this in your pocket, you are probably fine otherwise stick to the rog3 which is much stronger.
Arte8800, 13 Mar 2021Ugly nasty looking phone. I'd take this with Samsung note10 design. Flat back, sharp ed... moreSamsung galaxy note 9 was arguably the most beautiful looking phone ever madde(from front ofcourse). Rog 5 kinda reminds me of that phone. 😍
Ioannis, 14 Mar 202120.4:9 screen ratio, are you joking? Too narrow for everything, this phone is as wide as a 5.5... moreIt's supposed to be great for gaming and media consumption. Like movies for example, if you like this those black bars in movies you'll hate this aspect ratio. Sure you can pinch zoom but then the side are cut and also it looses a bit quality. Sony phones as 21:9 aspect ratio and it's great for watching movies or scrolling. It's still :9 so you didn't loose any content display vertically when ur in landscape but now u have more view horizontally. I don't see anything wrong with that. For gaming wide displays are considered great(landscape) that's why we have ultra wide monitors. If you're thinking of buying this phone for stuffs other than gaming n media consumption than you shouldn't buy it ig.
Umer, 18 Mar 2021ridiculous structural weakness . please explainyou can see the weakness in the design in a Jerryrigeverything video. There Zach managed to destroy the device by bending it in the middle. This is an issue not because people will intentionally do it, but because it will make the device less resistant to pressure applied when keeping it in pant's pockets or accidentally sitting down if it is on a mattress or couch.
The design has several weak points in the middle, and the frame is not rigid enough to overcome those weaknesses.
Anonymous, 18 Mar 2021How many bend their phone with all their might, 9 fingers?I am a mechanical engineer, and it is not about bending the phone in one go full force... it is about applied pressure over time.
My, still working, Xperia XZ has a plastic frame with similar weak points in the middle, due to the thick side fingerprint scanner. Over the years and normal use without a case my phone managed to bend slightly for keeping it in my pant's pocket and sitting down (side pockets that is), due to the pressure of some pants, and this became a real issue last year when I noticed that the top right of the display glass was coming off of the frame. I needed to put a piece of adhesive tape running from the front top bezel to the back, otherwise the proximity scanner wouldn't work. The plastic frame had cracked right next to the fingerprint scanner and this feature no longer works, I need to unlock with a pattern.
All in all my Xperia XZ still works and I gave it to my son for light gaming and communication, other than those weaknesses, the device itself was incredibly sturdy and survived LOTS of falls to hard floor and the display is still basically intact.
If sd 888 is fabricated to tsmc instead of samsung, it will never overheat always
Rogphone 3 no headphone jack I will pass, roguephone 5 ridiculous structural weakness,I will pass too.
Tech nerd 333, 17 Mar 2021how can a 5nm hip be worse than a 7nm one? It’s supposed to be not, but looks like there is a foundry issue (Samsung vs TSMC manufactured). SD888 just has excessive TDP while offering not much more performance compared to SD865. Hence the overheating
