Motorola Moto G5 Plus review: Simply the best budget phone


The Moto G5 Plus puts premium smartphone features like a metal body, new shortcuts and 4K video into a budget package.

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.

There's no NFC on the US model, and audio sounds tinny through the built-in speaker.

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.

Good hardware, bad software


The moto g5 plus is a decent budget device. Specs are nice and usable and it doesn't hiccup much. The camera takes nice shots most of the time and can be improved by installing google camera. This phone has dual sim slots and micro SD expansion. Most...

The balanced mid-ranger


The moto g5 plus does not excel at any particular field, but does most things right. The screen is fine but could be brighter in direct sun light. I rarely run out of battery during the day. Camera is fine, but can be improved with Google's HDR+ camera...
