Moto G5 Plus

1 / 13

Motorola is no stranger is hits and misses. The wild success of the Razr is undeniable, as is the fact that the company hasn’t managed to create another product to match the Razr’s cult-following. Over the years, the company has faced its far share of troubles, first getting bought out by Google and then getting sold off to Lenovo. After a somewhat rocky start, the company found its footing in the Moto G4 family of products that were an instant hit, especially in India. While we have expected that an update to the G4 family would drop this year, the few weeks leading up to MWC 2017 revealed everything about the upcoming phones, especially the G5 Plus. The phone, on the surface, seems to suggest that Moto’s done its homework, addressing many short-falls of the G4 Plus, along with also anticipating the competition’s threats. We have had the Moto G5 Plus for some time now, putting the phone through its paces. Read our review in full to see if its worth your hard earned money.

OUR VERDICT

There’s a lot to love about the Motorola G5 Plus. The build feels good in the hands, thanks to its metal construction. The camera was an instant hit with us thanks to its great autofocus. The battery life is great, the performance is an acquired taste, but overall, the Moto G5 Plus is definitely a good purchase decision.
