ASUS ZenFone 5Q as your next mid-range gaming smartphone

There are a few things to consider in choosing your next mid-range gaming smartphone and we are here to enumerate those things to make sure you invest your hard earned money on the right device – this time the ZenFone 5Q

Display Size

The wider the display, the better gaming experience as it will let you see the details of the games better. A wider display also means there is more space for your fingers. This is very important if you play a lot of MOBA as well as FPS games. Thanks to the ASUS ZenFone 5Q’s 6-inch FHD+ IPS display (2160 x 1080) every detail on our game is clear.

Processor and GPU

Depending on what games you play, the processor and the GPU equipped in the smartphone is another thing to check. Most games today are graphic intensive and requires powerful GPUs in order to play seamlessly. The ZenFone 5Q is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor and Qualcomm Adreno 508 GPU. Not the most powerful processor and GPU for a gaming smartphone, but it is more than enough for casual gamers.

Battery Capacity

Of course, every gamer wants their smartphone to last longer than the time they spend on gaming. The ZenFone 5Q has 3,300 mAh battery enough for almost 6 hours of gaming (on wi-fi). We tried it by playing Ragnarok mobile overnight and you can see on the screenshot that after 3 hours of usage, we still have approximately 3 more hours left for continuous gaming.

And lastly,


The price point is another thing that is being considered by a lot of gamers. There are those who are willing to up their game by spending P30,000 or more for a gaming smartphone such as the ROG Phone, Razer Phone 2, or even the Xiaomi’s Black Shark. But it is a different story for those who have a limited budget for mobile gaming, the price is an important factor. We recommend the ZenFone 5Q as aside from the factors mentioned above, the ZenFone 5Q is very affordable at only P 12,995.
