Review: Motorola Moto G5 Plus

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  2  

Motorola has a winner in the Moto G5 Plus. The phone isn't perfect, and yet it delivers a consistent and enjoyable experience no matter how you look at it.

Motorola traded in the cheap, flashy plastics of older G series handsets for finer, more sedate metals in the G5 Plus. The result is a pleasing handset that looks and feels better than the price point. The phone has a great full HD screen, excellent build quality, and a nice size/weight. Everyone will be happy with the battery life and wireless performance, though call quality was a bit of a drag.

The Android 7 Nougat user interface works wonderfully on the phone's hardware. Motorola has long offered a clean build of Android with just the right touches and that's evident on the G5 Plus. The Active Display is one of the best features, delivering notifications perfectly. The camera interface is simple yet speedy, and picture quality is above average for this class of phone.

Motorola is asking $230 for the 2 GB / 32 GB model and $300 for the 4 GB / 64 GB model. When stacked against other unlocked phones, there's a lot to like about the Motorola. I wish it were priced a bit less, but in this case you're getting what you pay for.
