MOTO G5 Plus Delivers Big Value At A Modest Price
Need A New Phone, But Your Wallet Is Feeling A Little Light? Motorola Has Your Back.
Motorola released the Moto G5 & G5 Plus this March with a generally positive reception from their customers and the Android community. Like its predecessors in the Moto G Series, the Moto G5 Plus delivers exceptional value for as little as $230. That is right - A smartphone with full features, new hardware, & solid build quality for no more than $300 fully optioned out!
CNET Gave the Moto G5 Plus 4/5 Star Review, stating the following:
"The Good The splash-resistant Moto G5 Plus has a near stock version of Android Nougat, a good camera and video, and a metal build -- and it's extremely kind to your wallet.
The Bad There's no NFC on the US model, and audio sounds tinny through the built-in speaker.
The Bottom Line With a long list of features you want and only a few that you don't, there is no better budget phone than Motorola's Moto G5 Plus."
For a $300 or less smartphone, the Moto G5 Plus has some decent specs. It rocks Android Nougut (Practically Stock) on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, and has a Adreno 506 GPU, 2/3/4 GB Memory Options, 32/64 GB Storage Options with an expandable MicroSD card slot, a removable 3000 mAh battery, & a 12 MB f/1.7 Primary Camera. It is the first Moto G Series device to sport a metal frame (although only partially - the back is plastic).
Speaking of the quality of its frame, JerryRigEverything over on YouTube has done a comprehensive durability test of the standard Moto G5 (Not Plus). The phone held up to most all his scratching, burning, & bending - a testament to Motorola's ability to engineer a durable device affordably.
