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...

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.

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 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

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...

Industrial Design is on point ; Metal and glass gives phone a premium feel ; Fingerprint sensor up front ; Top-quality camera (especially at this price) ; Headphone jack

No NFC ; No removable battery ; micro-USB (not USB-C) ; External speaker quality not the best ; Water repellent, not water or dust-proof

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...

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: Budget Done Right

 

Overall, the Moto G5 is a great unlocked phone for shoppers on a budget.

Upscale (mostly) metal design ; Fantastic fingerprint sensor with gesture controls ; Epic battery life ; Superbright screen ; Works on all major U.S. carriers

No USB Type-C port ; Smaller display than budget competitors

With fantastic gesture controls, top-notch performance, great battery life and two models to choose from, the Moto G5 Plus is easily one of the best phones under $300.
