Best ASUS phones 2024

While ASUS doesn't make many different smartphone models, there are still some great choices on offer.

Here's what you need to know about the best ASUS phones available right now.

If you want the best ASUS phone, get the Zenfone 11 Ultra

With ASUS now focusing on two distinct product lines, it doesn't make as many phones as it used to. That said, this condensed strategy is working well for the brand, and the Zenfone 11 Ultra is a great overall product that nails the basics. It isn't a small phone like its predecessors, but it has the right balance between hardware optimization and clean software, and the larger size allows it to stand out. 

Of course, if you need a small phone, the Zenfone 10 is still the best small phone you can get today. Right now, there isn't another device that has the same caliber of hardware as the Zenfone 10 in such a small size, and that alone makes it worthy of consideration. 

If you want something aimed at gaming, the ROG Phone 8 Pro delivers outstanding hardware backed by a whole suite of gaming-focused features. The phone isn't as aggressive when it comes to styling, and that is a smart move by ASUS as it allows the device to be much more palatable by a mainstream audience. That said, you don't miss out on any of the gaming extras, and it is a real joy to use.
