Best Asus Phones: Best Overall, Best For Gaming, And More

Today, we’ll be discussing Asus. The Taiwanese manufacturer is best known for its laptops and PC components, so it may be surprising that Asus has been producing mobile phones for nearly two decades. 

The ZenFone lineup has been around since 2014 (Windows-equipped Asus phones date even further back to the mid-2000s), and Asus has spent a great deal of time and money developing the brand during that time. And here we are, approving of the eighth generation of ZenFones and secretly desiring that ROG phone despite no longer being children or gamers. 

And while we’re on gaming, Asus is preparing to release its next ROG model, the Asus ROG Phone 6, which we will add to the list (presumably at the top) shortly. 

In a smartphone industry dominated by Apple and Samsung, it’s refreshing to see what an (sort of) underdog can accomplish. Here is our list of the top Asus smartphones available in 2022! 

Our Top Picks

Who is ASUS? 

If you are a loyal customer of the company, you should know who ASUS is and your experience before you begin. We are discussing a company headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan, which manufactures all types of electronic components for PCs and other devices, including motherboards, video cards, optical drives, portable PCs, mobile phones, and computer systems. 

Case, network accessories, and PC peripherals. The company was established in 1989 by TH Tung, Ted Hsi, Wayne Hsieh, and MT Liao. The name is derived from Pegasus, a winged horse from Greek mythology, but it is also a combination of the words As and Us, which can be translated as “I like it” or “I like it in the United States.” 

Today, the company’s most influential men are Jonney Shih, its president, and Jerry Shen, its chief executive officer. ASUS has been selling mobile phones since 2003, but its success on the mobile phone front has only recently exploded. 

10 Best Asus Phones

Although ASUS does not produce a large variety of smartphone models, some excellent options are still available. The brand now focuses on two distinct product lines: the Zenfone series catering to mainstream users seeking a small phone with high-end hardware. The ROG Phone series offers aggressive designs backed by the latest hardware and additional features. Here is what you need to know about 2022’s best ASUS smartphones.

1. Best Gamer Phone: Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate

[content-egg module=AmazonNoApi template=item groups=”1″]

How can we not include a phone with “Ultimate” in its name? Yes, it’s a specialized device, but it’s fantastic. The Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate may be the best Asus smartphone for a small group of enthusiasts. And sometimes this is sufficient. We are returning to this monstrous phone. 

The Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate has it all: a super-fast 144Hz 6.78-inch AMOLED display made by Samsung (1,200 nits’ peak brightness, HDR10+, 150.89% sRGB color gamut coverage), 18GB of RAM (a blatant overkill but why not?!), 512GB of storage, a hefty 6,000mAh battery, the most recent Snapdragon 888 chip, stereo speakers, air trigger buttons, 65W charging, a separate display on the 

This device has only two significant drawbacks. The first is the price – there’s no getting around it – you’ll need to spend more than $1,500 to acquire this beauty. Which, to be fair, is not THAT expensive in a world where the average Galaxy Ultra or Sony Xperia approaches $1,300. The second one is essential; you cannot obtain this phone. It is a limited edition, so limited that (if you’re lucky) you’ll have to resort to shady Chinese websites even to have a chance of obtaining one. Nonetheless, it exists and represents the pinnacle of smartphone technology in 2021.

5. Best of MediaTek: ASUS ROG Phone 6D Ultimate

[content-egg module=AmazonNoApi template=item groups=”5″]

In 2022, Asus is on a mission. Two new high-end handsets were introduced just a few weeks after the company announced the ROG Phone 6 and 6 Pro. 

The ROG Phone 6D and 6D Ultimate are not direct successors but are alternatives. They utilize MediaTek’s Dimensity 9000+ chipset instead of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 in the 6 and 6 Pro. 

One could be forgiven for mistaking the ROG Phone 6D Ultimate for re-releasing the 6 Pro based on a quick inspection. Although the dark grey finish (your only color option) is more subdued, the appearance of the two phones is nearly identical. 

The ROG Phone 6D Ultimate lives up to its name with various superior specifications and features. The Dimensity 9000+ is comparable to the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor that powers the 6 Pro. This applies to performance and power efficiency, with battery life also an outstanding feature. 

Combined with the large 165Hz display, the gaming experience is among the best of any mobile device – assuming your content with Android applications. Connect the included fan and utilize the 6D Ultimate’s new cooling portal when the phone inevitably begins to overheat. 

However, the latter is only advantageous for extended gaming sessions. It is also a large and cumbersome phone, which is exacerbated by the addition of the cooler. 

 However, despite the high price, it may still appeal to avid mobile gamers seeking the best experience. 

  • Dual Sim, 3G, 4G, 5G, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, NFC 
  • Dimensity 9000 Plus, Octa Core, 3.2 GHz Processor

  • Impressive cooling system upgrades
  • Very expensive
  • Cooling ‘portal’ needs fan to be connected
  • Big and bulky

6. Best Flagship: Asus ZenFone 8 Flip

[content-egg module=AmazonNoApi template=item groups=”6″]

In recent years, the never-ending quest for maximum screen-to-body ratio has spawned some attractive design solutions. The ZenFone 6 introduced the flip camera, which Asus refined over the next two generations in the ZenFone 7 and 8 models. It is a novel approach with some drawbacks, but it gets the job done and looks fantastic. 

The ZenFone 8 Flip picked up where the 7 Pro left off, refining the flip mechanism in minor ways. For those unaware, the ZenFone 8 Flip lacks a front-facing camera for taking selfies. Instead, the entire main camera module flips up, allowing you to photograph yourself with three different high-quality lenses. Neat! 

The notch 6.67-inch HDR 10+ display is decent, and even though it can only reach 90Hz, you won’t feel like you’re missing out on anything. In addition to the same top-tier Snapdragon 888 chipset, 8GB of RAM, and 128/256GB of storage, a microSD card slot has been unexpectedly added. 

The camera module retains the same primary and ultra-wide lenses as the ZenFone 8 but adds a 3x optical zoom telephoto lens. There is a large 5,000mAh battery, but neither wireless charging nor a 3.5mm audio jack is present (strange at this size). Nevertheless, the Asus ZenFone 8 Flip is your best option if you desire the flip experience. 

  • 64MP wide-angle camera, 8MP, f/2.4, 80mm, 12 MP, f/2.2, 14mm (ultrawide)

  • Charging is not very fast.

7. Asus ROG Phone 5S

[content-egg module=AmazonNoApi template=item groups=”7″]

Officially retired by Asus, the ROG Phone 5 series is no longer available. The good news is that the company has introduced the Asus ROG Phone 5s as part of a portfolio refresh. This new model is why the vanilla ROG Phone 5 is being discontinued, and the differences between the two are minimal. 

The ROG Phone 5s includes the Snapdragon 888+ chipset, an overclocked variant of the Snapdragon 888 found in the ROG Phone 5. The display’s touch sampling rate has been increased from 300Hz to 360Hz, which should please fan of fast-paced, rapid-click games. 

 The phone is available in three memory configurations – 16/512GB, 12/512GB, and 18/512GB – with corresponding prices of €1000, €1100, and €1300. The 18GB model is identical to the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate, so the ROG Phone 5s is the best Asus smartphone available on paper. As of now.

8. Best for Most: Asus ZenFone 7 Pro

[content-egg module=AmazonNoApi template=item groups=”8″]

The Asus ZenFone 7 Pro is an evolution of the flip camera concept that Asus pioneered with the ZenFone 6. However, all first-generation flaws have been fixed in the 7 Pro, and everything is much better. What, then, is the Asus ZenFone 7 Pro? And why bother when the ZenFone 8 Flip is available? However, the 7 Pro is superior to the Flip and costs less. 

This is your device if you want a more affordable flip-camera phone. It costs less than $700 and is nearly identical to the ZenFone 8 Flip, excluding the chipset. The ZenFone 7 Pro is equipped with Snapdragon silicon from the previous generation – the 865+ – but it’s no slouch! The performance is comparable to that of the Flip, and the triple camera system has the same configuration. 

The other significant distinction is the side-mounted fingerprint scanner, which may be off-putting to some, but is much faster and more accurate than the in-display scanner on the Flip. If you’re interested in the flip concept, you can’t go wrong with either of these models. Oh, and by the way, the ZenFone 7 Pro in Pastel White looks incredible!

9. Runner-Up: Asus ZenFone 7

[content-egg module=AmazonNoApi template=item groups=”9″]

If you want to save money without sacrificing a flagship device, the standard Asus ZenFone 7 is an excellent option. Let’s quickly compare it to the Pro model. With the ZenFone 7, you receive the Snapdragon 865 rather than the 865+ found in the Pro. The RAM is 6GB instead of 8GB, and the storage capacity is 128GB. Not terrible, correct? 

The camera system is virtually identical; the battery has the same 5,000mAh capacity and supports 30W rapid charging. The display is like the Pro version, which is a positive feature. The 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate is stunning, particularly without notches and cuts. The ZenFone 7 is available for around $600, a reasonable price in an era where flagship smartphones cost between $1,100 and $1,300. 

  • Processor: Qualcomm SM8250 Snapdragon 865 
  • RAM: 6 GB, 8 GB 
  • Storage: 128 GB

10. Asus ROG Phone 3

[content-egg module=AmazonNoApi template=item groups=”10″]

You’ve heard the expression “old but gold” It perfectly applies to the Asus ROG Phone 3. It is the Asus gaming phone from the previous generation (there is no ROG Phone 4 due to an Asian superstition regarding the number four), and it’s still awesome. It is a gaming beast equipped with Snapdragon 865+, 12 or 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage. 

Both the 144Hz display refresh rate and the RGB logo are on the 6.6-inch FHD+ panel. You can map the two “shoulder buttons” on the side of the phone to perform any function you desire. The camera on the Asus ROG Phone 3 achieves surprisingly impressive results. The primary camera has a 64-megapixel sensor, but it’s set to take 16-megapixel photos by default, grouping pixels into clusters of four – a technique used by many modern smartphones. The ultra-wide camera is also respectable, and there is a macro camera, which can be advantageous if you enjoy macro photography. 

When it was first introduced, the Asus ROG Phone 3 cost $999 for the base 12GB model and $1,099 for the PC-shaming 16GB model. The price of the ROG Phone 3 has decreased significantly over the past few months, falling to approximately $500. Finding a better, more powerful phone for that price would not be easy. 

  • Display: 6.59 inches 
  • Front Camera: 13 MP 
  • Battery: 6000 mAh 
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus 
  • Ram: 8 GB 
  • Rear Camera: 64 MP + 13 MP + 8 MP 
  • Outstanding all-round performance
  • Lots of storage and RAM for its price points
  • Loud, spatial audio
  • Useful proprietary accessories available — docks, fan, dual screen case
  • Minimum brightness does not get low enough
  • No water resistance
  • GSM only (no Verizon support)

How to select the best ASUS phone

ASUS mobile phone They use the same components as all other mobile phones on the market; therefore, the same approach and criteria can be used to select a device from this company. All of their mobile phones use a customized version of the Android operating system with a ZenUI user interface. Below, I summarize the technical characteristics you must compare between various models to find the best suits your preferences. Do you enjoy compact displays? ASUS offers mobile phones with these characteristics. Do you desire a massive screen? It is available on the ASUS mobile phone line. Are you looking instead for a cheap mobile phone? Again, ASUS has numerous inexpensive models! 


It is an essential feature of a mobile phone because it affects the product’s design and size. Most ASUS mobile phones feature IPS LCD displays, the most common type for devices in this category. Some models use AMOLED displays, which have lower color fidelity but can deactivate black pixels to reduce energy consumption and provide a high contrast ratio. Natural colors and wide viewing angles are among the arrows on the bow of IPS LCD screens. ASUS offers devices with screens ranging from 5 to 6.8 inches if you require a large display. On the market there are devices with resolutions ranging from HD (720 1280 pixels) to Quad HD (2560 1440 pixels) to Full HD (1920 1080 pixels). 

Dimensions and design. 

As stated previously, the display of a mobile phone also influences design decisions. This term describes the external appearance of a mobile phone, but it also includes the materials used, the construction methods, the shape, and the finishes chosen. ASUS mobile phones may have polycarbonate casings, which are the least expensive but also the most scratch-resistant, and aluminum or aluminum and glass, which are the costliest materials. In addition to being more pleasant to the touch than plastic models, they are also more fragile. This decision is subjective and should be made based on your preferences. 

CPU and memory as hardware 

In addition to software and optimizations, hardware is also the component that affects the device’s overall performance. The more embedded hardware a mobile phone has, the faster and more responsive it will become over time. The central processing unit (CPU), also known as the processor, is the primary computing component of a mobile phone and is used to process incoming signals. Computational power is measured in gigahertz (GHz), and most models use multiple cores (physical computing units within the same processor) to perform various tasks concurrently. On the slope memories, two factors must be considered: RAM. It is the short-term memory that retains all the open applications’ data; the greater the number of applications, the longer they will be stored in the background; the storage. It is the space where you can store applications, files, music, documents, and anything else you wish to keep “forever.” RAM and storage memory are both measured in gigabytes (GB): 1 or 2 GB of RAM is the bare minimum for Android mobile devices, whereas 32 GB of storage is recommended if you plan to store many files or applications on the device. A micro-SD card, sold separately, can be used to expand the storage on almost all ASUS mobile phones. Check out my buying guide if you want to purchase a micro SD card for your next ASUS mobile phone. 


The latest generations of mobile phones feature two cameras: a rear-mounted primary camera used to take traditional photos or record videos and a front-facing camera used for selfies and video calls. Several factors are considered when gauging the quality of the various chambers: the aperture of the lens (f / plus a number that is lower and brighter in the photo); the stabilization technology employed (optical stabilization, OIS, is better than electronic, EIS). The front camera can take panoramic selfies with friends using a wide-angle lens. Also, consider recording videos preferably in Full HD or even Ultra HD 4K for the most expensive models. 

Network support 

Even though mobile phones have highly advanced features, we must not overlook the parameters that make a mobile phone reliable, such as reception and stability indicators. All ASUS mobile phones are compatible with 2G and 3G networks. The vast majority can also connect to 4G LTE networks, which are currently the fastest networks available in Italy until the arrival of 5G. Always verify that the 800 MHz band, which certain Italian network operators utilize, is compatible with your mobile phone; ASUS mobile phones should have no issues in this regard. In addition to mobile data networks, check for Bluetooth (always present) and Wi-Fi connectivity: The most prevalent standards are 802.11n and ac, with ac being the faster of the two. Dual band indicates that the mobile phone is compatible with both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi networks. 

Dual SIM support 

Many ASUS mobile phones can accommodate up to two SIM cards, allowing users to utilize two phone numbers simultaneously. It helps distinguish between work and personal life, among other applications. In many models, the second SIM shares the installation slot with the micro-SD, so you must choose between dual SIM functionality and storage expansion, but not both. 


On a mobile phone, the battery may be removable or fixed. Its effectiveness is measured in milliamp-hours (mAh), and the higher this number, the greater the mobile phone’s operational autonomy. This is not always the case, as how you use your mobile phone plays a significant role in your independence. For instance, GPS navigation consumes a lot of power, and the illuminated screen also significantly impacts the calculation of a mobile phone’s daily autonomy. Additionally, a smaller screen consumes less energy than a larger panel. 

Operating System 

The operating system is the essential software that manages the “low level” (that is, in the most profound way possible and with the highest permissions) software and hardware of a mobile phone. Android will always be present in ASUS smartphones, albeit in different versions (5, 6, or 7, often upgradable). The company’s mobile phones are also customized with ZenUI, a heavily revised version of Google’s operating system in terms of graphics and features present from the beginning. 


The Zenfone 8 is a compact, powerful phone. WIth its top-tier specs and decent camera performance, it punches well above its weight, especially given this price point. The Asus Zenfone 8 may be the most surprising phone of 2021 with top-of-the-line performance in the smallest Android flagship in years.

The best part is that the phone is powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, and has a vibrant 5.9-inch 120Hz AMOLED screen. Combine that with clean software and a good value, and the Zenfone 9 is a phenomenal option.

Asus ROG Phone 6’s larger 12 GB RAM is better for playing games and all with respect to Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max’s lower 6 GB RAM. Asus ROG Phone 6 has more Internal Memory (256 GB) than Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max (128 GB).

Sensor. In-display fingerprint sensor, face recognition, accelerometer, e-compass, gyroscope, proximity sensor, ambient-light sensor, ultrasonic sensors and rear touch sensors* for AirTrigger 5 and grip press *Rear touch sensors are only on ROG Phone 5s Pro.

Asus has launched its flagship phone for 2022, and it’s a device that might suit those who feel that most Android phones are just too big. The Zenfone 9 has a relatively compact 5.9-inch display—smaller than all the leading premium devices of the year—but doesn’t compromise on the specs.

In its latest teaser for the upcoming compact flagship phone, ASUS revealed that the Zenfone 8 will have an IP68 rating which means that alongside being able to withstand dust, dirt, and sand, it can also survive immersion in water up to a depth of 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes

If what you want is a super-powerful phone with incredible specifications, and you don’t mind the camera not being the best of the best, then the Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro is definitely worth a shot. It’s pricey, but it’s also the most crazily-specced phone that I’ve used in a long time. It really does have everything.

If you want a purpose-built gaming phone and you don’t mind splurging, the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate is the best you can get in the market right now. It does not have any direct competitors but you can get much slicker flagship phones at this price. If you don’t want to spend Rs. 79,999, the base Asus ROG Phone 5 at Rs.

Software. The Zenfone 9 operates on Asus’ Zen UI software, layered over Android 12.

Asus has its headquarters in Beitou District, Taipei, Taiwan. As of 2009, Asus had manufacturing facilities in Taiwan (Taipei, Luzhu, Nangang, Guishan), mainland China (Suzhou, Chongqing), Mexico (Ciudad Juárez) and the Czech Republic (Ostrava).

Our Recommendation 

If I were asked to recommend the ultimate and best gaming phone to someone today, the Asus ROG Phone 5 Ultimate would be one of my top choices. If money is no object, this is the only device that offers everything and more in a relatively compact, premium package. If you desire something more reasonable and affordable, the Asus ROG Phone 5 and Asus ROG Phone 3 are excellent options, depending on your willingness to pay for FPS. 

Many individuals may not wish to own a smartphone designed for gaming. For this reason, the Asus Zenfone 8 Flip is the ultimate device for most people who desire an elegant, premium flagship with the most advanced chipset currently available. The slightly less expensive Asus Zenfone 8 offers comparable features, power, and specifications, but its display is smaller and has less of everything else. If you have a smaller budget, the Zenfone 7 series is also a great option, as it offers excellent performance for the price and has a great camera and battery life. 


In conclusion, there you have it! We believe that any of these phones deserves your time and money. Asus may not be as famous in the smartphone market as Samsung or Apple, but this does not preclude the company from producing phones. Contrariwise, a ROG Phone of any generation demonstrates the contrary. And you don’t have to be an avid gamer to appreciate such a device; a good phone is a good phone, period. 

This list of the best Asus phones is a work in progress, and given the pace of modern technology, it always will be. According to rumors, the next Asus ROG Phone 6 will be released sometime in July, and some leaked images look exciting. Stay tuned for additional Asu’s devices and RGB gaming mayhem in the upcoming weeks.
