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 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

Motorola Moto G5S Plus review: bigger and better, but at a cost

 

Premium design at a budget price

Great unibody design ; Excellent battery life ; Unlocked; works on every carrier

Poor camera ; No NFC ; No USB-C

Motorola Moto G5 Plus review: Simply the best budget phone

 

The Moto G5 Plus puts premium smartphone features like a metal body, new shortcuts and 4K video into a budget package.

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.
