The Rog Phone 5 Pro is visually hard to distinguish from the standard version and moves at the same level in terms of processing. However, the big difference can be found on the back, because there the Pro has a so-called ROG-Vision display instead of the dot-RGB matrix. This can represent smaller animations, also provides information about the current battery level when charging the smartphone and accompanies the connection of accessories with suitable animations.
Another difference is revealed in the scope of delivery, because the external plug cooler AeroActive cooler 5 is located directly in the box.
The equipment is unique for a smartphone. In addition to the Pogo Pins for connecting to the fan, there is a USB-3.2 port (Gen. 2, up to 10 Gbit / s, HDMI and DP support up to UHD, QC 5.0) and on the lower edge an additional USB-2.0 port (QC 3.0), which can be used for power supply during gambling. In addition, there are also the additional ultrasonic keys AirTrigger 5 as well as an audio left with high-res audio DAC on board.
Android 11 is used as an operating system with the in-house Rog UI. If you Don & APOs; t like them, you can switch to the standard UI when you set it up, which is very close to a pure Android.
All modern standards are used for mobile data connection and for the pro version the number of supported frequency bands for LTE and 5G has been increased again. With Wi-Fi 6E, a fast WLAN standard is integrated, which can connect to two networks simultaneously with dual WLAN and enables high and stable data rates in the test on the Netgear Nighthawk AX12.
The voice quality of the Rog phone is really good and delivers to the ear a very good comprehensibility, which reaches its limits only with very loud ambient noise. The speaker mode sounds slightly, but has a good microphone range and quality. The Asus smartphone can record two nano SIM cards and supports volte.
The Rog Phone 5 not only has a high refresh rate of up to 144 Hz, but also the touch sampling rate is very high at 300 Hz and promises with a latency of 24.3 milliseconds a fast conversion of input on the touchscreen. For biometric safety, an optical fingerprint scanner is available on the display, which offers quite reliable detection rates, but is not one of the fastest. Two-dimensional facial recognition is also possible.
