Will this be compatible with all carriers HD Voice systems?
I just purchased this phone after running over my LG V20 (long story) and I'm pleased to say, it's a really good phone for the budget price. I got it unlocked (direct from MOTO) and hooked it up with Sprint flawlessly (not sure why all those other pe...

Solid phone

Motorola G5 Plus provides a solid phone with near stock Android. I purchased one with Amazon ads on Prime Day. I have not tried the camera yet, but also have Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge to compare it to. One unique feature is that it has Wifi calling, which combined with T Mobile service gets free calls to the U.S. from a Wifi hotspot almost anywhere in the world.

Nice back up phone.

I wouldn't mind getting the G5 as a back up phone, or an interim replacement if I needed something in a hurry and wish to save up for something better.

Did you test call quality with VoLTE?

Did you use voice over LTE when doing this review?

Poor Upgrade

This phone is too similar to the Moto G4 Plus, and is a step down as well as far as screen size goes, from 5.5 inch to 5.2 inch. Processor is a step from the 617 to the 625, however almost everything else about the phone is nearly identical. I have a Moto G4 Plus and it's a great phone, but I would not consider upgrading to this one.
I actually like that it's smaller, it's easier to hold & operate with one hand (I even wish they'd release the G5 in the US, not just the PLUS model). The slightly smaller screen also means a slight bump in dpi, it's now 424 up from 401. Not a biggie,...
I would argue that the target market for the G-series does not upgrade their phone annually.
