Moto G5 Plus is mostly metal and without a removable backplate. The Moto G5 Plus is a slightly compact device with more rounded lines and an ergonomic grip. Its back is made of aluminum, with edges made of a material that combines metal and plastic. G5 Plus will be able to withstand a rain shower without any issues. The body has a wide fingerprint sensor on the front and is splashproof.
At the top we have hybrid card slot. The slot can take one nano SIM card and one microSD card, or two nano SIM cards simultaneously.
At the bottom, we have the headphone jack and the micro USB port, unfortunately, no USB 3.0 or Type-C here.
Lenovo has reduced the size of the display. The new diagonal measures in at only 5.2-inches, This makes the smartphone a bit easier to handle. The resolution is still in Full-HD, which is important for ensuring sharpness of display.
Primary 12 MP
Secondary 5 MP
The camera is located at the top with the dual-tone LED flash with Dual Autofocus Pixels technology, which promises to deliver better results in low light conditions and lock onto subjects faster. The circular protrusion makes the G series design more like that of the modular Z series.
Do not expect superior audio quality here, as the Moto G5 Plus only has a mono speaker. The audio quality of the speaker is average, some distortions are noticeable certain moments. The call quality is great.
The Moto G5 Plus brings with it a new physical button on the front, which functions as a biometric sensor, the home button and also responds to gestures. It works the same as Imprint on the Google Pixel, and runs software commands based on touch patterns. The fingerprint recognition is very fast. In addition to fast fingerprint scanning, the button also recognizes navigational gestures without any delay.
The 3,000 mAh battery can last 18 hours with moderate use. Quick Charge technology is always welcome. The device comes with a charger that is capable of charging it in full in less than an hour and a half.
Moto G5+ comes with Android 7.0 Nougat without many customizations in the software. The app tray works the same as the Pixel Launcher, meaning it is accessible by sliding down. In addition to the traditional shake to activate the flashlight feature, there’s also an option to block apps and reduce screen brightness.
Compared with the previous generation, the Moto G’s processor went from a Snapdragon 617 to the Snapdragon 625. It has 2GB Ram, More RAM is critical to guaranteeing good long-term performance.
