Just bought a new asus rog 5s (JB hifi Australia). Box says 5 but sticker says 5s.

Downloaded devcheck and aida64. It displayed rog 5 instead of 5s, snap 888 instead of snap 888+.

Anyone with rog 5s that show the text rog 5s and 888+ with devcheck or aida64?

  • Hmmm, that doesn't smell good

    Compare the imei of the box with that of the phone

    You can type the imei of the phone and the box on a site like this

    Now it became more interesting.

    I got the 16g 512gb, cpu 2.99ghz and cortex x1 @ 2.99 (shows in the phone)

    I checked that rog 5 doesnt have 512 gb.

    Rog 5 is cortex 1 @ 2.84.

    Then i checked my iemi and it shows Asus rog 5 ultimate. But rog 5 ultimate is only 18g, 512 and cortex x1 @ 2.84

  • Not sure we can trust what the phone says for the name

    Compare the imei of the box with that of the phone, it is the most important for the guarantee and possibly later for resale and especially if the device corresponds to the box and therefore to the purchase.

    There is an ASUS site where you can check when the warranty expires and which will give you the exact model of the phone, in europe it is this one, no idea if it works in australia
