Moto G5S Plus review

 

The Moto G5S Plus is one of the most balanced phones Motorola has on offer and it's selling at a really attractive price. And we finally got round to reviewing it, that is. Oh well, our timing isn't spot on but the package and the price are.

Lenovo Moto G5S Plus review

 

The Lenovo Moto G5S Plus once again redefines the word “budget.”

Excellent value for money ; Solid performance ; Good battery life ; Excellent software experience

Micro USB port – it’s 2017 ; Lackluster camera

The Lenovo Moto G5S Plus once again redefines the word “budget.” It offers excellent value for money, better performance than others in this price range, and an awesome software experience. Nothing’s perfect – as shown by the camera – but for the...

Moto G5S Plus

 

Moto G5S Plus review: Moto is back at doing what it does best, and that's making fantastic budget phones. The Moto G5S Plus might be the best yet.

Great value ; Much improved build ; Good daylight photos

Slow, slightly buggy camera

The Moto G5S Plus has a different camera array to its closest sibling, the Moto G5 Plus. Instead of using a single 16-megapixel rear camera it has two 13-megapixel rear cameras, with a lens aperture of f/2.0.

Moto G5S Plus review: one of the best budget Android smartphones you can buy

 

The excellent, affordable Moto gets a full metal jacket and a bigger screen to boot

Moto G5S Plus review

 

Moto's affordable, big-screened smartphone

Upgraded full metal shell ; Very good value ; Good battery life

Significant camera shutter lag ; Battery no bigger than G5S ; Occasional app crashes

More metal, more screen, good battery life and a still-great price make the Moto G5S Plus one of the best affordable Androids around.

Motorola Moto G5s Plus Smartphone Review

 

Good but is it better? The Moto G5 Plus impressed us in our recent review. Lenovo has now released a successor six months later with a dual rear-camera system. Can the Moto G5s Plus overcome one of the weaker points of its predecessor?

dual SIM ; support for up to a 256 GB microSD ; good cameras ; well-constructed case ; clear phone calls ; good front camera ; responsive touchscreen ; precise gyroscope ; fingerprint sensor & gestures ; useful additional software ; good battery life ;...

GPS still needs improving ; annoying questions during set-up ; dual camera system is not overly convincing

The Motorola Moto G5s Plus is a great mid-range smartphone that does not have any significant drawbacks. The battery life is strong, the display is bright, the performance is reasonable, while the workmanship and case stability are excellent. Notably,...

Moto G5S Plus review: Motorola has produced a winner here, but the dual camera still needs work

 

This is a comprehensive review of the recently launched Moto G5S Plus after extensive tests and usage.

Motorola has announced a compelling device in terms of the build quality while improving on the design to improve usability. While the dual camera setup did not impress me much, the unibody metal finish of the device made up for the ordinary camera...

Motorola Moto G5S Plus review: Still good but outclassed by the Moto G7

 

The Moto G5S Plus remains one of the most affordable Android phones, but the Moto G7 is much better

Upgraded metal frame ; Good value ; Upgraded metal frame

Camera not great at night ; Camera shutter lag

The camera is a little laggy and, aside from some improvement in benchmark results, the hardware hasn’t been substantially improved aside from the addition of a second rear camera. However, the Moto G5S Plus is a great choice for those who want a phone...
