Our thoughts

As a gaming smartphone, you need a strong battery backup and a longer screen. The Legion Phone 2 Pro has a bigger display and apart from the missing macro sensor, it defeats ASUS ROG Phone 5 Ultimate Edition in the camera specs as well. This is due to a better ultra-wide-angle and front camera. ASUS does you some special experience. It comes with a mini display which can be useful but taking price and specs, we will go with Lenovo legion Phone 2 Pro.
