Why Asus skipped No.4 in ROG Phone?
Why would Asus skip the number “4” and go to “5”? Well, there’s a Taiwanese/Chinese superstition that believes the number “4” is an “unlucky” number because it means almost the same as the Chinese word for “end.” OnePlus and Realme also skipped the number.
Thanks to the cutting-edge chipsets Asus typically uses for all its smartphones, all Asus smartphones deliver high speed. Also, Asus always provide both Stock Android and Custom UI in ROG Phones. The ROG Phone 5 looks sturdy in its design; it also features what seems to be a secondary display at the rear side.
