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.

Moto G5 and G5 Plus review: Still the best budget phones

 

Motorola's new Moto G5 Plus is easily the best affordable smartphone out there right now. It features the same great camera as the Galaxy S7 and its octa-core 2GHz processor paired with Android 7.0 Nougat make it a slick performer. It's a bit dull on...

Good camera ; Smooth performance ; Very cheap

Lackluster design ; No NFC ; Poor sunlight visibility

We at Engadget probably sound like a broken record now, but yet again, Motorola is showing the industry how to make great, affordable devices. I'm not a fan of the design direction Motorola has taken with the the G line, and don't pay attention to any...

Lenovo Moto G5 Plus review

 

The Moto G5 Plus faces more competitors than its predecessors, but it's still one of the best budget phones.

Motorola at MWC 2017: Moto G5 and G5 Plus hands-on

 

The Motorola family grew by a couple of mid-rangers - the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus. Those two run pure Android (with the Pixel launcher, in fact) and the Plus model at least promises stellar photography.

Moto G5 Plus review: a five star phone with a three star camera

 

The G5 Plus is good, but murky photos and poor 4K let it down.

Premium look and feel ; Bargain basement price

No NFC in USA ; Unimpressive camera

Moto G5 Plus review: a new value champion

 

Almost everything you could want, for under $300.

A mostly-premium design despite low price ; Runs like a flagship phone most of the time ; Long battery life ; Works on any carrier

Large bezels cancel out compact screen ; Camera doesn’t live up to expectations ; Software updates aren’t guaranteed

Cheap phones can't afford to suck anymore

Motorola Moto G5 Plus

 

The Moto G5 Plus sets a new standard for affordable unlocked phones with a premium build, solid specs, smooth performance, and bloatware-free Android software.

Affordable. High-end look and feel. Smooth performance. Sharp 1080p display. Great battery life. Good camera. No bloatware. Compatible with all major US carriers.

Tinny speaker. No NFC. Screen could be brighter.

If you're looking for a great phone that won't break the bank, the Motorola Moto G5 Plus checks all the boxes. It has a premium metal build, a sharp display, long battery life, a solid good camera, up-to-date software, and some pretty cool unique...

Moto G5 Plus review: A big dose of premium, without the prohibitive price tag

 

Compared to the G4 Plus the G5 is better sized, better designed, better looking, and with NFC (in the UK model) along with that nifty gesture-control

For the money it’s the best phone in its class ; Fingerprint sensor and gesture controls work well ; Solid metal build quality ; Can run apps and games really well

Camera close-up focus is poor ; Screen has a protector that lacks fitted finesse ; Not the most vibrant screen ; Some slow load times ; Not sold on the gold

That's the crux of the Moto G5 Plus: you won't find a better phone for £250.

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

 

Moto's latest Plus ups the design and cuts the price

Doesn’t look or feel like a budget phone ; Inventive one button nav ; Stellar design and value

Lacks NFC (in US) and Moto Mod support ; Battery isn’t removable ; Iffy camera performance

Refreshed from top to bottom, the Moto G5 Plus has redefined itself and it didn't even have to. The premium build, competent specs and low price will suit deal-seekers and phone enthusiasts alike.
