ASUS ROG Phone 5 is the first durability test casualty of 2021

The first generation of gaming smartphones bore designs that reflected their PC counterparts, mixing ruggedness with a distinct beauty that gamers appreciate. Later iterations, however, have started to reflect more the design trends of mainstream smartphones, almost as if to hide their gaming identities. Compared to its predecessors, the ROG Phone 5 looks more like a regular high-end flagship but changing the formula may have caused some problems with the phone's durability in return.

ASUS ROG Phone 5 line revealed with more RAM than your gaming PC

ASUS ROG Phone 5 line revealed with more RAM than your gaming PC

ASUS today revealed the ROG Phone 5 lineup, which consists of three different phones: the standard ROG Phone 5, the ROG Phone 5 Pro, and the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate. With the standard ROG Phone 5 starting at around $1,000, there's no denying that the phones in this line are going to be firmly on the higher end in terms of price. Then again, they also seem to be on the higher end in terms of specifications, but phones like the ROG Phone 5 Pro and Ultimate specifically make us wonder how much is too much.

ASUS ROG Phone 5 might have more RAM you’ll ever need for now

ASUS ROG Phone 5 might have more RAM you’ll ever need for now

How much RAM do you need for a smartphone? Disregarded the old joke about 640KB of RAM for PCs in the late 80s, smartphone memory seems to have stalled at 12GB in the past year or so with very few exceptions. That said, it seems that high-end smartphones are ready to push the envelope again with the ROG PHone 5 going beyond the 16GB that you'd find on the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G this year.

ASUS ROG Phone 5 DxOMark audio review leaks some details

Huawei just revealed its next foldable phone and first impressions have been lukewarm if not downright disappointing. Fortunately, that's not the only big phone that might be around the corner. No, there won't be a new foldable much less a foldable coming really soon but ASUS will be trying to make a big splash in about two weeks with a more regular powerhouse. The ASUS ROG Phone 5's arrival is pretty much confirmed thanks to DxOMark's very early review of its audio capabilities, along with some interesting tidbits to boot.

ASUS ROG Phone 4 or 5 design could have some big changes

ASUS ROG Phone 4 or 5 design could have some big changes

Samsung kicked off 2021 with the powerhouse that is the Galaxy S21 Ultra but, truth be told, it still doesn't represent the pinnacle of smartphone performance. To see those, you'd have to look towards high-end gaming smartphones that try to push mobile hardware to their limits without burning your hands or your house down. We might not have long to wait as there might be not one but two such gaming smartphones coming in a month or two, including one from ASUS that seems to be mixing things up a bit.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 and G15 laptops add RTX 30-series GPUs for 2021

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14 and G15 laptops add RTX 30-series GPUs for 2021

As NVIDIA suggested in its CES 2021 presentation earlier today, there are a number of RTX 30-series laptops on the way from ASUS. Two of these laptops are refreshes to the ROG Zephyrus G14 and G15 lines, and while we don't know a ton about these new laptops just yet, we do have an idea of how they'll improve over 2020's models. For starters, the new G14 will be running an RTX 3060 under the hood, while the G15 will boast a 3080 - or at least configuration options that include both of those cards.

ASUS ROG Phone 3 teardown has some good news for gamers

ASUS ROG Phone 3 teardown has some good news for gamers

Razer may have started the whole gaming smartphone trend but it seems that ASUS is the one that's taking it to the extreme. Of course, ASUS' ROG Phones have also been the most expensive among its peers so buyers will want to know they're getting they're money's worth. That will partly depend on how well the phone performs which, in turn, depends on how cool it can stay under pressure. Fortunately, JerryRigEverything's Zack Nelson was willing to sacrifice the ROG Phone 3's screen to find the answer.

ASUS ROG Phone 3 battery and accessories sound too familiar

ASUS ROG Phone 3 battery and accessories sound too familiar

It's almost ironic that just when gaming has become even more pervasive, gaming-centric smartphones have seemingly gone under the radar. Compared to last year, we aren't hearing much about these souped-up handsets, especially not from Razer. Lenovo has yet to unveil its first-ever Legion-branded smartphone and ASUS has yet to launch its third stab at that still niche market. If you've been holding your breath for the ROG Phone 3, though, you might want to start breathing again. If these new official and unofficial details are any indications, we won't be seeing anything spectacularly new this year.

ASUS Zephyrus Duo 15 price confirmed: Weird comes at a cost

ASUS Zephyrus Duo 15 price confirmed: Weird comes at a cost

The ASUS Republic of Gamers Zephyrus Duo 15 has two displays. There's the standard display in the lid of the laptop, then there's another display (another touchscreen display) just above the keyboard. Both displays work with the same operating system, and both operate together. This isn't the first time we've seen a similar sort of machine, but it is definitely the most elegant execution of a dual-screen laptop such as this.
