There were zero surprises as Motorola took the veils off the Moto G5 and G5 Plus. All the specs had already shown up in an earlier leak.
What we’re looking at here is a pair of midrange phones that seem pretty capable on paper.
The G5 Plus has a more powerful processor (Snapdragon 625 vs Snapdragon 430) and a better camera (13-megapixel phase-detect autofocus vs 12-megapixel rear camera with dual autofocus pixels). As the Plus indicates, it’s the larger of the two with a 5.5-inch display. The G5 has a 5.2-inch display.
Battery size takes a hit on the G5, as it goes down to 2800mAh from the G4’s 3000mAh capacity. The G5 Plus will retain last year’s battery capacity. The G5 Plus also has Near Field Communication (NFC), while the G5 has none.
A notable improvement is the metal body — a step up from the plastic builds of Motos from the past.
It’s important to note, however, that the specs of the Asian variant may be slightly different.
Of course, the primary selling point for phones of this stature is their price. The Moto G5 sells for $199, while the Moto G5 Plus starts at $229. At these price points, the new metallic Motos offer good value without completely compromising the smartphone experience.
