Asus ROG Phone 5 gets the high score in DxOMark's audio review

Peter, 22 February 2021

The official Asus ROG Phone 5 launch date is March 10, however DxOMark already posted its audio review of the gaming flagship. And it gave it an excellent mark.

Anyway, with a score of 79 the upcoming ROG Phone claims the top spot in the charts with a healthy lead over the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro (76) in second place. Its predecessor, the ROG Phone 3, is currently tied for third with the Huawei Mate 20 X (both at 75 points).

The phone in question seems to be the I005DA, which we saw on TENAA in January rather than the I005DB version, which cropped up later. The B version has a screen on the back while images of the A model had a Tencent Games logo instead. The phone tested by DxOMark has neither a screen nor a Tencent logo.

What the phone does have are two front-firing stereo speakers, Dirac tuning technology and a 3.5 mm headphone jack with an ESS DAC. And a Snapdragon 888 chipset, of course.

In terms of performance the ROG Phone 5 earned category-leading sub-scores in the dynamic, spatial and artifacts tests. There are some downsides, including slightly weak bass and issues cropping up at max volume. The phone’s recording capabilities are overall excellent.
