Moto G5 Plus review: The budget maker grows up, offers a balance of design and performance - Tech2

 

The Moto G5 Plus is probably the most important Moto G as it is the first time we see Moto launching a metal phone in the budget price segment. But, is it as good as its competition? Here is our in-depth analysis of the smartphone.

This is not only the best Moto G, but also the most expensive one. The 3GB RAM variant with 16GB storage is priced at Rs 14,999 and the 4GB RAM version with 32GB storage at Rs 16,999. Comparing the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, the 4GB RAM with 64GB storage is...

Motorola Moto G5 Plus review

 

Can the Moto G5 go big but stay budget?

Nippy performance for the cash ; Decent battery, with handy TurboCharging ; 4K video recording is a nice extra

Not as great value as the vanilla Moto G5 ; Screen only slightly bigger ; By-the-numbers design

A few bonus features over the standard Moto G5 don’t quite make up for the jump in price for this Plus-size model

Moto G5 Plus Review

 

The Moto G5 Plus has arguably the best camera in the budget range right now, and is underscored by impressive battery life.

Excellent camera ; Impressive battery life ; Android Nougat out-of-the-box

Camera needs to be faster ; Only 16 or 32GB storage

The Moto G5 Plus is more expensive this time, but it also has a vastly improved camera. It produces impressive contrast and dynamic range, taking photos that other phones in its category can't. This is complemented by impressive battery life and...

Moto G5 Plus Hands-on and First Look [Images]

 

Motorola has introduced the 5th generation of the Moto G series smartphone, the Moto G5 Plus in India. What Moto G5 Plus brings to the table are its 12 MP dual pixel camera and a stock Android 7 Nougat software. More to it is a new metallic design and...

Moto G5 Plus Review – Camera Phone on a budget

 

Moto Gs are always aimed at the midrange smartphone market and no doubt they are great at what they offer. Motorola recently launched the Moto G5 Plus which is the 5th generation of the Moto G series smartphone with one of the key features highlighted...

Rear Camera Captures Very Good Daylight Shots | Records 4K Video & 1080p Video (60fps) ; Gesture-Based Home Key Is Addictive ; Fingerprint Scanner Works Super Fast And Accurate ; Front Camera Records Slow Motion Videos ; Pure Android Experience, No...

Not The Best Low Light Camera ; Battery Life Could Be A Tad Better

It seems Moto G5 Plus is not the right fit for this price, there are other competitors that offer more, but it still feels reasonably made. It has cleaner software experience, more than average camera leaving its competitors behind and a gesture key...

Moto G5 Plus review: A great budget smartphone, but can the G5S Plus do any better?

 

The Moto G5 Plus wasn't the budget masterpiece we were hoping for, but the G5S Plus looks to improve on past mistakes

Great camera ; Sleek design

Average battery life ; Non-removable battery

If you’re a keen photographer, there’s nothing else that comes close to it at the price, but if you’re after something more practical, there are better handsets out there. Our current favourite is the Lenovo P2. Yes, you sacrifice camera quality, but...

Motorola Moto G5 Plus review

 

The thing that makes the Motorola Moto G5 Plus ( $229.99 at Amazon.com ) the best budget phone on the planet is that, for the most part, it doesn't feel like one at all. It looks, feels and operates like a much pricier phone, which means that...

The splash-resistant Moto G5 Plus has a near stock version of Android Nougat, a good camera and video, and a metal build -- and it's extremely kind to your wallet.

There's no NFC on the US model, and audio sounds tinny through the built-in speaker.

With a long list of features you want and only a few that you don't, there is no better budget phone than Motorola's Moto G5 Plus.

Moto G5 Plus

 

For years now the Moto G5 has been the pinnacle of budget smartphones. Others have crammed in more specs and often a lower price, but none have constructed a phone that actually works like something that's double the price.
