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 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...

Moto G5 Plus Review : Mid-tier Phone Authority

 

The 5th generation of Motorola's Moto G series returns to a place of extraordinary accomplishment. What Lenovo's Motorola crew have done is to design a device that does exactly what its originator intended for the series. Like the Moto G, the Moto G5...

Because this smartphone looks rather nice, feels good to use (metal!), and takes decent photos, it’s a good phone. For the price it’s being offered at, the Moto G5 Plus is more than a good phone, it’s a great phone. Lenovo’s Motorola has hit the right...

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

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: Best sub-$300 smartphone lets you forget about the flagships

 

I am blessed to write about smartphones here on ZDNet and tend to overspend on the high end flagships because of how much time I spend using phones every day. However, after 10 days with my T-Mobile SIM in the new Moto G5 Plus , it will be very...

Snappy performance with pure Android OS experience ; Best standby screen of all Androids ; Productive multi-function home button/fingerprint scanner ; Radios support AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, and more ; Low price, with Amazon Prime option ; Long...

No NFC, so no Android Pay support

Moto G5 Plus Review

 

It has been a couple of years since we last reviewed a Moto G phone , so even though we don't always drop down to the mid-tier range, it felt like a good time to make a return before Samsung's new ridiculously expensive products arrive. This time, it's...

Well, let’s talk about this. Is your budget under $200? Then yes, buy the Amazon ad-filled version at the link below and love life. Is your budget under $300? Then yes, you’ll still probably enjoy life with a Moto G5 Plus by your side, because at $299,...

Motorola Moto G5 Plus review

 

The Motorola G5 Plus is one of the best mid-range phones of 2017. Good looks are combined with a superfast octa-core processor, 32GB of memory, a good camera and decent battery life. Top value for money!

We gave the G5 four stars, describing it as a safe buy. The G5 Plus manages to pull a 5-star rating from us, thanks mainly to the faster processor and extra memory that lift the performance of this phone from good to outstanding. The extra power will...

Moto G5 Plus review: Inexpensive doesn't have to mean cheap

 

Last year, Motorola's G4 lineup didn't live up to its predecessors. This year, Moto gets back on track.

Battery life for days ; Inexpensive doesn’t mean cheap ; Solid everyday performance ; Crisp 1080p display

No NFC when mobile payments are finally catching on ; microUSB charging is so 2016 ; Low light camera performance is just OK

The Moto G5 Plus does everything it should at this price, and then some. It’s perfect for teens or those who don’t want to spend a fortune on a smartphone.
