Priced at Rs 16,999, the smartphone from Lenovo owned Motorola seems to be a smart buy. The phone went on sale online and many have already managed to purchase the same. Review of Moto G5 Plus has started doing the rounds in internet. Here is a snippet of the review:

The classic all-metal body of the newly launched Moto G5 Plus is one of the most striking features. The metal-finished body looks stylish and therefore is a trendy device to carry. The fine gold colour looks cooler and better than the lunar grey one. Though the phone is compatible with the new design and material, yet there could have been an increase in the screen to body size ratio.

As the phone has a perfect weight in today’s generation of big smartphones, it is quite handy to carry and use for speaking, typing, clicking photos, and watching videos. A big improvement in Moto G5 Plus compared to the other Moto G phones is the reduced screen size to 5.2” from the 5.5” ones.

Moto G5 Plus came with an all-new fingerprint sensor on the Home button and this has been greatly accepted by users. The sensor not only works smooth and quick, but also it is very useful to maintain privacy, especially when people are around. The sensor has rounded edges, which makes tap or swipe smooth and convenient.

The rear camera of the smartphone gives good high quality images. It is coupled with an image sensor that gives bright sharp and high-resolution images under good lighting conditions. The rear camera even gives sharp and high quality videos. The mic is also powerful enough for sound capturing at the time of shooting. The 5MP front camera also produces good quality selfies.

Speakers as well as battery life of Moto G5 Plus seems promising and acceptable. It takes about two hours to fully charge the battery and once fully charged, battery lasts for one full day. The TurboPower charging on the other hand is useful when a very low battery has to be charged quickly within a short time span. The phone is powered by Snapdragon 625 that results in a smooth interface. To conclude, the phone’s 4GB RAM+ 32GB storage slot is sufficient enough to save multiple image, video, and audio files.
