Having a gaming phone means you have to make some sacrifices in other areas of the device; one of those main areas was the camera in ASUS's line-up of gaming phones.

At CES 2024, the company announced two new iterations of its ROG Phone line-up, the ROG Phone 8 and 8 Pro, and both of these devices feature the upgrade that users of previous generations have been asking for - a good camera. ASUS has seemingly listened to the criticism of its previous ROG Phone, which was widely praised as an overall very high quality and affordable device, and added a 50-megapixel f/1.9 main camera that's powered by a Sony IMX 890 sensor, which is used by the OnePlus 11.

Additionally, ASUS has integrated the Zenfone line's 6-axis hybrid gimbal stabilizer that enables better low-light performance and a "Super HyperSteady" video mode. Furthermore, ASUS has placed a 13-megapixel f/2.2 ultra-wide camera, along with a third 32-megapixel telephoto shooter. The front-facing camera is a 32-megapixel selfie camera that is now under a punch hole in the display.
