KSh 98,999.00

The ASUS ROG Phone 5s starts at Ksh 98,999 and for the price, offers a fantastic gaming experience. What`s more, the device offers a stunning display too and the smartphone`s audio setup is in a league of its own as well. But, you could say the same for the ROG Phone 5 too, which launched a while ago. Furthermore, the smartphone can`t hold a candle to devices from OnePlus and Xiaomi`s stables, which offer similar performance for less. Lest I forget, the handsets also feature faster charging speeds, as well as more versatile cameras. In the end, the ROG Phone 5s struggles to carve an identity of its own in the Indian market. Add to that the fact that the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 backed devices are just around the corner and the ROG Phone 5s makes for a tough sell amidst the current and looming competition.

The Asus Rog Phone 5s Price in Kenya is Ksh.98,999
