Moto G5S Plus


Moto G5S Plus review: Moto is back at doing what it does best, and that's making fantastic budget phones. The Moto G5S Plus might be the best yet.

Great value ; Much improved build ; Good daylight photos

Slow, slightly buggy camera

The Moto G5S Plus has a different camera array to its closest sibling, the Moto G5 Plus. Instead of using a single 16-megapixel rear camera it has two 13-megapixel rear cameras, with a lens aperture of f/2.0.

Moto G5S Plus review


Moto's affordable, big-screened smartphone

Upgraded full metal shell ; Very good value ; Good battery life

Significant camera shutter lag ; Battery no bigger than G5S ; Occasional app crashes

More metal, more screen, good battery life and a still-great price make the Moto G5S Plus one of the best affordable Androids around.

Motorola Moto G5S Plus review: Still good but outclassed by the Moto G7


The Moto G5S Plus remains one of the most affordable Android phones, but the Moto G7 is much better

Upgraded metal frame ; Good value ; Upgraded metal frame

Camera not great at night ; Camera shutter lag

The camera is a little laggy and, aside from some improvement in benchmark results, the hardware hasn’t been substantially improved aside from the addition of a second rear camera. However, the Moto G5S Plus is a great choice for those who want a phone...

Motorola Moto G5s Plus Review: Special edition smartphone packing a dual-lens camera


We already love the Moto G5 Plus and Motorola has just super-sized it in the form of the special edition Moto G5s Plus. Packing a...

Bigger screen ; Smart and streamlined UI ; Sleek design

Dual lens camera no marked improvement

Overall, the Moto G5s Plus improves on the already-great G5 Plus, offering a lot for less than £300 here in the UK. Refined design work, a bigger display and that same vanilla Android interface makes for a strong all-rounder, while the improved selfie...

The Motorola Moto G5S Plus is a mid-range smartphone with some impressive-looking specs. It has a large 5.5-inch display and two rear camera lenses, but does that amount to beautiful shots, or will you be disappointed? Find out everything you need to...

Motorola Moto G5S Plus review: A lot of phone for a very reasonable price


A definite step up in design and function from the Moto G5 Plus – the most desirable Moto phone yet

The Moto G5S Plus is the most desirable Moto G handset we’ve seen in a long time. It’s certainly an improvement on the original G5 Plus: the larger screen is better for games and videos, and the unibody casing makes it feels much more like a premium...

Moto G5S Plus Dual-Camera Review


We review the new Moto G5S Plus, the entry-level smartphone from Motorola, with dual 13mp cameras.

Dual cameras have been used on smartphones to enable different lenses, for example, an ultra-wide angle lens and wide-angle lens on the LG G5 / G6 , or a wide-angle and a telephoto lens, on the iPhone 7 Plus and 8 Plus , or dual cameras with different...

Moto G5S Plus review


The Moto G5S Plus is one of the most balanced phones Motorola has on offer and it's selling at a really attractive price. And we finally got round to reviewing it, that is. Oh well, our timing isn't spot on but the package and the price are.
