Best Budget Phone with little easily fixable issues, slippery body
G5 Plus with dual sim options, excellent fingerprint detector, touch sensor, longer battery life with fast charging, good camera in the price of $359 with a free 32GB sandisk Sd card had nothing to ask from it. But there were some software issue with camera(crashing for no reason), apps like messaging have no incoming sound message and screen brightness was compromised but all solved by downloading apps from google play and after android 8.1 update. Using stock android with quick 8.1 update was magnificent. Now after fixing little issues this G...5 Plus is just perfect for me and saved lots of money of my pocket. A beautiful handset but very slippery back side, need to hold the phone carefully as the camera bump would get a crack like me if slips from the haad. The NFC is located at the front underneath the moto logo hard to find.
Now I have tried Motorola I won't go back. Very user friendly and unlocked meaning no Network rubbish filling up your phones memory. Love the wrist twist to activate the camera, and the Karate chop the activate the flash light! The processor is fast too. For the price, this is an excellent smart phone. The only downside is getting a case from a phone shop is not an easy task. I had to get mine online.
This phone is really all you ever need. It's taken some hammer and survived intact. I would never buy an iPhone after having one of these phones. Bought my daughter one too. The camera is excellent. The apps i have all work well on this phone. The clarity of the sound is great for those of you who still make actual phone calls out there! It will probably not be being made by the time i need to replace it.
Work well considering how much I've paid. Its not as fast as the latest samsung or iphone but it works well. The only thing is i find the casing a bit too easy to dent. Ive dropped it once and there a huge dent on the back rather than the usual scuffing or nick.
I absultly love my G5 plus it is amazing and I couldn't live with out it
The G5 plus it amazing has the best camera out there and is undestryoyable I have dropped it millions of times and it hasn't cracked yet. It as a finger scanner that is awesome and it has cool little hacks like a can chop my phone to automatically turn on the torch
Worked for 14 days
It literally worked for 14 days. After that one day it powered off and never powered on again. Tried all options of hard reset, nothing worked. And Apparently this problem is so common when you google it.
Whatever features does phone have doesn't matter anymore if you cant turn on the phone.
Ultimate Android in affordable prices
Bought this from JBHifi and its really worth in such a price like after discount and all got it in $300.
Ultimate android features and up-gradable to latest Android OS through push updates.
Extra memory card slot also present so you can upgrade memory easily.
Battery is super long lasting. and its easily competitive with high end phones..dont forget the cost too...
Light weight and has finger print lock button as well just like expensive ones out there.
Camera is of good quality too worth spending money on it.
My phone lost the imei no and moto wont upgrade from android 7 to 8.1 as of June 2018 Will never buy another Moto There are much better phones out there that have android 8 and will keep up with the software. I bought a Xiaomi mia1 has better specs better camera and it is a android one which means they keep up with the software.
June 13th 2018 Update: Lost Imei no phone no good
Has Nougat 7 software Motorola wont upgrade it to Oreo it is now the middle of June and still no Oreo. The phone is much slower because of the old software. If Motorola was serious about their customers they would keep their software up to date. Their are cheaper phones that have better specs.
Great phone good features small price
Dropped my 4g in water..oops. chose the 5g ss it does everything the other phones do minus the outrageous price! Why oay 1000.00 when you can pay less than 400.00! My only gripe is its hard to buy cases except on line but really a great phone. Easy to use and operate, i travel constantly and the battery lasts a couple o f days. Very happy with this product
Best phone on the market! Excelente prestaciones en relacion precio calidad. Tiene una buena camara, buen sonido y muy buena interfaz. Soporta todas las aplicaciones y tiene muy buen desempenio. La camara frontal tambien tiene muy buena resolucion. He podido instalar diferentes chops de todo el mundo en el, incluyendo Australia y paises de Sudeste asiatico.
Great value for money!
A really nice phone for such an amazing price. The touch is a bit less responsive but ok for a teenagers use. Colors are nice and so is the sound quality/speakers. Wifi is great as well. Camera is ok. I am really happy with my purchase and would recommend to anyone looking for a value for money phone.

Great smartphone with competitively price
This is a competitively priced smartphone with full of functionalities. Instead of buying an expensive Android phone, e.g. Samsung Galaxy, I prefer to buy this one. As we know, the price of Android phones are dropped down very fast, so there no reason to buy an expensive phone.
I know that the expensive phone, e.g. Samsung Galaxy, is better than this one, but it's not really worth for that money. My friend bought one expensive phone for $1000 and its price was dropped to $600 in 2 weeks.
Well, because of the above reasons, I will choose this phone, PERSONALLY!
Good Budget Phone
It is really good budget phone with little lag with camera clicks. Bit hot while using camera or skype for long time. Picture quality is very good as compared to other budget phones available in the market. COmapred to other phones available, this phone is a good competitor and no need to spend huge amount. recommended

One great value phone
This budget phone deliver the modern essential functions. Dual sim cards let me Put in two sim c@rds, one for work and one for data. Also a dedicate as card slot to expand the storage. However, sometimes it requires some internal storage to install some system apps. The camera focus function sometimes is slow or not able to focus.
one of the best nowadays
I recently update myself to this phone from his grandfather Moto G4 Plus. G5 plus is almost a carbon copy of G4 plus and although i was quite fascinated by moto g4, now a bit down with G5 as it has nothing new to offer.
I strongly recommend this phone yet if you have G4 you better to stick to it.
Good but some wifi issues
Overall a good phone with some good features, the camera is good and OTA updates come quickly. The only issue is the wifi. The wifi keeps disconnecting all the time. This as been happening after the last OTA update. Not sure if motorola will look into this and rectify the issue.If they can do that its a great little phone. Its just annoying when the wifi keeps get disconnected all the time.
After recently smashing my new HTC U11, I didn't want to break the bank when getting a new phone. I started researching good mid range androids and settled on the Moto G5s Plus. I'm about a week in and I am pleasantly surprised. It does lack a little in some areas such as performance and colour quality, but for under $400, i am not complaining. I will see how it fairs over the next year. Maybe flagship phones are overrated.
Best bang for your buck
Bought this phone to replace one I smashed last year. I managed to find a price under 300 bucks and at that price it is a brilliant phone. It will do 90% of what the top tier phones do.
It runs the latest version of android, has a good camera and is quick to switch between apps. It feels like a premium phone but at a cheap price. Recommended.

Moto G5 Plus
+This is the best budget smart phones it has Excellent Camera and Video worth the money spent, it also has Sleek design and no better budget phone than Motorola's Moto G5 Plus.
- No USB Type-C port, Smaller display than budget competitors and Weak speaker, Bland design.
Definitely Worth Buying.
Good value for money phone
I have been using this phone for a few months now. It's interface is pretty sleek and the phone has premium feel too due to its metal build even though it is at low price points, particularly in Asian markets. I moved to this phone from my old Moto G3. Moto G and Moto E have been low/medium budget phones but they made me a fan of Motorola phones. All Moto phones, including Moto G5 Plus, look sturdy and build to last.
I have absolutely no complains for the phone! I wish there was a 64GB version available though I could always use an SD card ...to extend the memory. This phone is available in different combinations of memory and RAM globally, so do some basic search for the variants before you decide to buy one. I like video and camera too. One can't go wrong with this phone. Good bang for the buck.
