Moto G5 Plus


For years now the Moto G5 has been the pinnacle of budget smartphones. Others have crammed in more specs and often a lower price, but none have constructed a phone that actually works like something that's double the price.

Moto G5 Plus review: a five star phone with a three star camera


The G5 Plus is good, but murky photos and poor 4K let it down.

Premium look and feel ; Bargain basement price

No NFC in USA ; Unimpressive camera

Moto G5 Plus review: A big dose of premium, without the prohibitive price tag


Compared to the G4 Plus the G5 is better sized, better designed, better looking, and with NFC (in the UK model) along with that nifty gesture-control

For the money it’s the best phone in its class ; Fingerprint sensor and gesture controls work well ; Solid metal build quality ; Can run apps and games really well

Camera close-up focus is poor ; Screen has a protector that lacks fitted finesse ; Not the most vibrant screen ; Some slow load times ; Not sold on the gold

That's the crux of the Moto G5 Plus: you won't find a better phone for £250.

Motorola Moto G5 Plus review


Can the Moto G5 go big but stay budget?

Nippy performance for the cash ; Decent battery, with handy TurboCharging ; 4K video recording is a nice extra

Not as great value as the vanilla Moto G5 ; Screen only slightly bigger ; By-the-numbers design

A few bonus features over the standard Moto G5 don’t quite make up for the jump in price for this Plus-size model

Moto G5 Plus review


Moto's latest Plus ups the design and cuts the price

Doesn’t look or feel like a budget phone ; Inventive one button nav ; Stellar design and value

Lacks NFC (in US) and Moto Mod support ; Battery isn’t removable ; Iffy camera performance

Refreshed from top to bottom, the Moto G5 Plus has redefined itself and it didn't even have to. The premium build, competent specs and low price will suit deal-seekers and phone enthusiasts alike.

Moto G5 Plus review: Gone and swiftly forgotten


The Moto G5 Plus wasn't quite the budget masterpiece we were hoping for, but its successors improve on past mistakes

Great camera ; Sleek design

Average battery life ; Non-removable battery

If you’re a keen photographer, there’s nothing else that comes close to it at the price, but if you’re after something more practical, there are better handsets out there. Our current favourite is the Lenovo P2. Yes, you sacrifice camera quality, but...

Moto G5 Plus Review: In Depth


Our in-depth Moto G5 Plus review takes a close look at the performance, battery life, camera tech of Lenovo's great-value mid-range mobile.

Sleek metal finish ; Great battery life ; Dependable camera

No Type-C

The Moto G5 Plus is a worthy continuation of the great value Moto G family, offering a more than satisfying user experience at an affordable price. Anyone after a dependable mobile snapper will be happy with the easy-to-use camera, while the impressive...

With the Moto G5 Plus mobile phone, Motorola is trying to offer excellent quality without charging a premium. We sent this mobile phone to our test lab, to find out how it stacks up against its rivals. Is it a brilliant budget buy, or one worth avoiding?

Moto G5 and G5 Plus review: Still the best budget phones


Motorola's new Moto G5 Plus is easily the best affordable smartphone out there right now. It features the same great camera as the Galaxy S7 and its octa-core 2GHz processor paired with Android 7.0 Nougat make it a slick performer. It's a bit dull on...

Good camera ; Smooth performance ; Very cheap

Lackluster design ; No NFC ; Poor sunlight visibility

We at Engadget probably sound like a broken record now, but yet again, Motorola is showing the industry how to make great, affordable devices. I'm not a fan of the design direction Motorola has taken with the the G line, and don't pay attention to any...
