Asus ROG Phone 5 review: A gaming phone with little compromise

The ROG Phone 5 comes lavishly packaged, with anime graphics and accessories in the box. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The design isn't too outrageous for a gaming phone, but there is a second display on the rear. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
That second display is mostly for decoration, but can show things like charging information. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There's a rubber cover for the ports on the side of the phone and you'll probably lose this - but there are spares in the box. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
For gamers there's a clip-on cooling fan which incorporates a kickstand and two additional buttons that you can programme. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Everything is aimed at gamers, from the Snapdragon 888 to the AirTriggers around the body, with plenty of customisation of in-game controls. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Game Genie gives you access to important in-game settings, so you can have control over everything. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
That 6.78-inch AMOLED display is glorious with refresh rates up to 144Hz and great for games or movies. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
