ASUS ROG Phone 5 now available in the US with a hefty price tag

Although every high-end smartphone can be used for gaming, gaming smartphones really push the envelope when it comes to performance. They also often employ gimmicks to aid gaming, from extra buttons to unconventional cooling systems.

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.

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.

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.

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.
