I purchased rog 5s recently. It was my worst mistake. Suddenly the wifi IP stopped working. Hotspot and wifi were dead. I went to service centre for compensation and they rejected. And after 2 days the entire hardware went dead. The customer care service were asking 50k for motherboard replacement. Worst phone ever. Worst service ever. My money got wasted. Below average phone. I highly recommend not to purchase it
What it is available??
ainz.sama, 18 Apr 2022are there any issues like in rog phone 5 lately? Orginal camera app when video recorded it shakes video and gps spining around
ainz.sama, 18 Apr 2022are there any issues like in rog phone 5 lately? So far so good. Only time will tell
I chose this over the ultimate version, boy i sure hope i didnt make the wrong choice. Its rare to find the ultimate version, saw a used one for usd1000, but bought a brand new 5s pro for usd1110 instead.
Vanilla ROG Phone 5s has a 16gb RAM/512gb storage variant
Very bad phone I say
You can see at real life ROG 5 perform better than ROG 5s Pro because ROG 5s Pro produced more heat than ROG 5 and it's make it more throttle compared to ROG 5
ASUS should upgraded their cooling system too and not only focused to increased performance which is useless because it can't maintain it's performance for a long time because the heat will makes it throttle

and its gaming phone not rugged phone, you can always put case,you need gaming feature more than ruggedness.

-low input lag, so phone respond very fast when you game, especially in pvp.
-quad antenna, whatever you handle phone you will hide just 2 of them, means you get good network without worrying how you handle your phone.
-multiple USB port for different accessories.
-accessory like dock, active cooling, gamepad etc.
Not worth an upgrade.
Even the screen is still only HD+. Need at least 2K and preferably 4K. Battery also needs to be 7000 mAh.
gaming phones should be focused only on screen, cpu and battery. no need good camera, gg above 5 or even victus, nfc, wireless charging etc. if those spec removed maybe the price can be reduced for over $300. i like a gaming phones like a xiaomi just simple gaming phones with price about $500 than this rog over $1000.

Throttle, horrible build quality and ugly aesthetics.
