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...

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

 

Today we're checking out one of the latest entries to this well-respected series, the Moto G5S Plus. With dual cameras and a metal body, does this phone manage to still feel pretty premium despite a wallet-friendly price tag? Let's take a look.

Decent value ; Great battery life ; Attractive build

No real waterproofing (nano-coat only) ; Aging micro-USB port ; Bokeh effect produces underwhelming results

Moto G5S Plus review: Get creative with the dual camera for $300

 

You will soon be able to order an Apple iPhone X for $1,149 or you can pay a quarter of that for a smartphone that offers most of what you need.

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 ; Long battery life ; Handy Moto Actions...

No NFC, so no Android Pay support ; MicroUSB still used for charging

Moto G5S Plus review: this is a budget phone?

 

The Moto G5S Plus builds upon the previous G5 Plus to deliver a near-flagship-level experience for a fraction of the cost.

Great build quality ; Punchy LCD screen ; Fantastic battery life ; Simplistic UI ; Useful "Moto Actions"

Outdated micro-USB ; Sub-par speakers ; Low-quality camera(s)

Motorola Moto G5S Plus Review: Unripe for the picking

 

Just half a year after their release, the Moto G5 and G5 Plus will each be replaced by new models that bear an S suffix. For this review, we took a look at the Moto G5S Plus to see if the early facelift is justified, or if Motorola should have waited...

Headphone jack ; Beautiful design ; Fast charging ; 1.5 days battery life ; Dual SIM

Outdated software ; Too expensive for mid-range ; Flawed camera focus effect

Motorola’s special edition G5S Plus is supposed to be the essential update to the fifth-generation Moto Gs. But competition from phones like the Honor 6X has already set the bar quite high in January—dual cameras, a fingerprint sensor, and strong...

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.
