Moto G5 Description


It was that time of the year again, when Motorola came out with the latest launches in its G series and no one was disappointed, as always. This year's lineup was same as last year with two devices including Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus. Both these handsets flaunt the new design philosophy that has been adopted by the brand since its last flagship launch. The Moto G5 is the more afoordable of the two and comes with good specifications as well, though not much different from G5. Here is a brief overview of the device for those who are looking for a powerful smartphone in budget.

Why Should You buy?

Interactive fingerprint scanner: One of the grievance we had with the last G4 Plus was that the fingerprint scanner on the front was just meant to unlock the device and did not serve as the home button. Motorola has changed the same in the new launch as it comes with a fingerprint scanner, which not only unlocks the device but also supports gesture for back and home. This is a welcome change and the on-screen soft keys can now be hidden as well.

Stock Android 7.0 Nougat: One of the biggest advantage of owning any Motorola handset was that they come with a near stock Android operating system, which makes them easy to use and operate. Moto G5 Plus too comes with the same near stock operating system and this time it is the latest Android 7.0 Nougat, which is a huge benefit.

Phase Detection Auto Focus: This time around, the handset maker has gone for a 13 Megapixels snapper on the back with bigger pixels and lesser aperture.  The inclusion of Phase Detection Auto Focus is the cherry on the top, as it can focus on any subject in a blink of the eye.

Metal build: So far, we witnessed Motorola launching its Moto series with plastic build, which was a given considering that these were budget smartphones. However, this time around, Motorola decide to step it up a notch as Moto G5 comes with the same metallic build as Moto M and feels quite premium in hand.

Why Should You Not buy?

Not much of an upgrade over Moto G4 : Apart from the design, improved fingerprint scanner and processor, there is not much difference over the last handset. In case you already have a Moto G4, there is no reason for you to go for the new handset unless you want the new age design and fingerprint.
