Use the phone as a controller

Avid gamers will love the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate. It features Motion Control, which lets you move and control the game by adjusting your phone. In fact, it boasts 10 different motion controls, allowing you to easily pick the moves that fit your game. Let’s say you’re in a racing game, swivel the phone to steer. Or push the phone away from you to accelerate.

Furthermore, the gaming phone uses Rear Touch technology with hidden sensors on the back of the device. These provide you with L2/R2-like trigger functions—similar to a gaming controller. And these functions work with ultrasonic sensors to put you in full control. Plus, similar to the original ROG phone, it includes ultrasonic side sensors to support your favorite gestures. This new way of gaming makes the experience more immersive—like you’re never seen before.
