With a hoard of smart phones being launched every year, it is very common to feel as if you are making use of technology that has already been outdated. This is all the more common if you are using mobile from top brands like Apple, Samsung, Oneplus, and more which always come up with their bumper models on yearly basis. This is however not true for all mobile brands. As a lot of them have infrequent launches. One of such mobile companies is Motorola. After being dead for long, the company recently had its resurgence, after being taken over by Lenovo; and has just launched the Moto G5 plus. The launch of the device comes after the Moto G series became a success, and was able to help the company gain its lost sheen. Given below are the key details about the device.
Price – The starting price of Moto G5 Plus is Rs 14,999, this is for the model which has 3 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage. The other model, with 4 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage is priced at Rs 16, 999. The difference between both the models is only of the RAM and storage, all other specifications remain same ranging from screen size to battery life, and the different colors that are available. Thus which ever model of the device you choose to opt for, keep in mind, you will paying the extra price only for the greater storage and RAM. And no other additional feature.
Features – Since Moto G5 Plus is one of the latest mobile launches, you will be able to access this on Android 7.1. The device now has a metal body and an aluminum finish, along with a screen size of 5.2 inches and full HD screen. If you have the experience of using Moto Z Play, you will realize the similarities between devices, except for the finger print sensor Moto G5 plus has at the bottom of the screen, on the front. The appearance of this one is a lot sturdier than all of its predecessors. This is thus one of the very handsome looking mobiles, with a screen size that is ideal for the perfect grip, allowing for one hand operations as well.
Specifications – The main attraction of a mobile is always the key specifications it provides the users with. Moto G5 Plus is certainly a mobile that is worth the money you pay for it. It not only has an impressive screen size and an attractive body, but also a long lasting battery life. The device is paired with 300 mAh non removable battery that allows for turbo charging. One of the problems here is that there are chances of the device beginning to heat up which is one of the factors that cause disappointment.
The pixel density of Moto G5 Plus is impressive, with a full HD screen resolution, it provides 424 PPI. In addition to this, it has been paired with a corning gorilla glass 3, which protects the device from multiple damages. The camera you get to use is also equally good. With a 12 MP rear camera, and 5 MP front cameras, you can get clear pictures, anytime, anywhere, thus providing you with all the necessary features in an affordable range.
Verdict – Although Moto G5 plus can provide you with all those features you would want to have access to, in your mobile, it does not really offer you something very amazing. The device is a fairly well performing, but does not offer something truly mind blowing. Which is also justified keeping in mind the affordable range it has been priced at. Both the variants of the device have scope for extending the storage capacity up to 128 GB, using external SD card. However, since the lower model has lesser RAM, you are advised to not expand it to the maximum possible limit. In the higher model you can opt for complete expansion.
In spite of all that you are offered in this device, it won’t be wrong to say that you can get access to better devices in this range which will not only offer you a bigger screen, and probably a better camera, but also a more powerful battery life.
