Motorola Moto G5 review


Audio performance isn't what it might be but this is still a great budget phone...

Good build quality ; Bright, sharp screen ; Snappy performance ; Stock Android interface

Audio performance lacking ; Camera could be better

Its poor audio performance lets it down, but the G5 is an otherwise strong budget handset well worthy of consideration

Hands on Moto G5 review: Moto's budget blower just got more premium


We take a look at Moto's newest cut-price smartphone, the G5

Fast charging ; Solid at basics ; Metal design

Metal feels cheap ; Plus is pricey

Moto G5 review: If price is everything, this is the budget phone to buy


If price is everything to you then for a quid shy of £170 there's nothing else on the market that will offer such a breadth of features and

Great fingerprint scanner with effective gesture control options ; MicroSD expansion (necessary given the 16GB storage only) ; Sturdy metal design looks good for this price point ; Clean software experience

The G5 Plus performs so much better (but it’s £80 extra) ; Can be slow to load and some stutter in playback ; No NFC like G5 Plus model (applicable for UK region) ; Metal doesn't really look/feel like metal

With other manufacturers pushing into pricier brackets, the Moto G5 sticks to its £169 guns and delivers a fairly knock-out performance for the price point. It's more sophisticated to look at than its G4 predecessor, will handle all manner of tasks...

Moto G5 review


A premium touch arrives on the best-selling budget Android

Part-metal body at a low price ; Crisp, vibrant HD display ; Slick fingerprint scanner

Still no NFC ; Not the snappiest chipset ; Not available in the US

With a shiny new metal body, a super-slick fingerprint sensor and decent specs, the Moto G5 offers real value for money. It’s another obvious choice for Android bargain hunters.

Moto G5 review: A solid budget phone for just £79 right now


The Moto G5 is no more

Nice design ; microSD support

Same performance as Moto G4 ; Camera not great in low light ; STILL no NFC

There’s the Lenovo P2 with its enormous 5,100mAh battery – well worth the investment at an extra £30 in my view although the camera isn't as good – and the Honor 6X with its dual cameras and sleeker, more attractive chassis. Couple that with worse...

Motorola Moto G5 review: A rock-bottom bargain for your everyday essentials


With a good camera, metal design and a dirt cheap price, the Moto G5 is for you if you're phone shopping on a budget.

The Moto G5 costs little, but packs a full-HD screen, good cameras and enough power for your everyday essentials.

The dim screen can be difficult to read under bright lights and you'll need to be careful if you want to get a whole day out of the battery.

The Moto G5 is the phone to get if you want an everyday phone for as little possible, but if you want higher-end features like NFC then go for the G5 Plus.

Moto G5 Review: In Depth


Moto G5 Review: Whenever a new G-series phone appears on the scene it's sure to get budget-conscious mobile fans a little hot under the collar...

Clean, intelligent interface ; Premium design elements ; Great screen ; Value for money

Poor video audio recording ; Cheap design elements ; Low internal storage

The new Moto G5 stays true to the G family formula, focussing on aspects like design, battery, camera and at £169, affordability. Certain elements, like storage, fall short of the mark, but for the most part, the Moto G5 packs in plenty of character,...

Motorola Moto G5 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Motorola Moto G5 mobile phone has a very tempting price tag, but does it offer good value for money? The last thing you'll want is to spend any money on a mobile phone that's nothing but a pain to use. That said, we've found excellent handsets for...

Moto G5 Review


We review the budget smartphone from Motorola, the Moto G5, with a 13mp camera, and fingerprint sensor.

If you’re looking for a fairly stylish entry level smartphone, the Moto G5 offers good value for money, with metal touches, and a fingerprint sensor giving the smartphone a more premium feel.

Review: Motorola Moto G5


The mid-range of the smartphone market may seem crowded, but there's been one clear winner in terms of features, affordability and battery life and that's the Moto G line.
