Honestly there are so many weird topics here surrounding the Rog5 being superior and people acting like it's some next evolution.
Guys let me clear some things up for you:
The screen is the same.
the speaker are basicially the same,.
the batterilife is worse on the Rog5 due to higher TDP from the SoC.
The LED on the back, while on paper nice, is something you won't even look at.
No storage upgrade, still capped at 512GB.
Phone will throttle if used over time without aero cooler.
Camera the same.
Audio quality hasn't been improved noticably at all on headphones, for some reason people first now got the memo that the Rog Phones in general have a high quality built in dac.
Overall if you already have a Rog3, there is literally no compelling reason for you to purchase the Rog5, if you have an older Rog phone 1 then you can easily consider it, but upgrading from Rog3 is just silly, even Rog2 I'd still call it a stretch to call it an "upgrade". So please don't be swayed by random reviewers acting like it's some next evolutionary thing.
Before you think of upgrading to Rog5
AveranI think the only reason they still haven't released rog 3 beta is becoz they are going to release new software features of rog 5 in rog 3 and they didn't wanted to spoil those new features before rog 5 release that is why our beta is still not released

I think the speaker is better it has newer amplifiers and is like 20% bigger I think
And has an high end ESS dac
Plus 65 W charging
That secondary display is on the pro/ultimate models and they're pretty costly so won't be considering em here
The air triggers technology has improved too (with two additional triggers on pro/ultimate)
There are a lot of subtle changes to be honest including haptics
I don't how much it's better compared to a rog 3 but it's true that a one gen upgrade isn't that worth it maybe if you want the jack compulsorily that's another thing
But there are a lot of subtle changes in the phone to be honest
Software wise there are many nifty improvements too including live wallpapers
