Moto G Plus line up devices get a notch above with every generation

It was that time of the year again, when Motorola came out with the latest launches in its G series and no one was disappointed, as always. This year's lineup was same as last year with two devices including Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus. Both these handsets flaunt the new design philosophy that has been adopted by the brand since its last flagship launch. The Moto G5 Plus is the bigger of the two and comes with good specifications as well, though not much different from G5. Here is a brief overview of the device for those who are looking for a powerful smartphone in budget.

Why Should You buy?

Interactive fingerprint scanner: One of the grievance we had with the last G4 Plus was that the fingerprint scanner on the front was just meant to unlock the device and did not serve as the home button. Motorola has changed the same in the new launch as it comes with a fingerprint scanner, which not only unlocks the device but also supports gesture for back and home. This is a welcome change and the on-screen soft keys can now be hidden as well.

Stock Android 7.0 Nougat: One of the biggest advantage of owning any Motorola handset was that they come with a near stock Android operating system, which makes them easy to use and operate. Moto G5 Plus too comes with the same near stock operating system and this time it is the latest Android 7.0 Nougat, which is a huge benefit.

Snapdragon 625: In any device, the processor running the show plays a huge role in deciding the user experience. Motorola has equipped the Moto G5 Plus with the Snapdragon 625 processor, which is an Octa-core processor clocked at 2 GHz. However, that is not the talking point of the processor. This processor is known for its balance between performance and battery efficiency, which makes this handset a great performer.

Phase Detection Auto Focus: This time around, the handset maker has gone for a 12 Megapixels snapper on the back with bigger pixels and lesser aperture. What this means is that the camera is significantly better than its predecessor. The inclusion of Phase Detection Auto Focus is the cherry on the top, as it can focus on any subject in a blink of the eye.

Metal build: So far, we witnessed Motorola launching its Moto series with plastic build, which was a given considering that these were budget smartphones. However, this time around, Motorola decide to step it up a notch as Moto G5 Plus comes with the same metallic build as Moto M and feels quite premium in hand.

Why Should You Not buy?

Not much of an upgrade over Moto G4 Plus: Apart from the design, improved fingerprint scanner and processor, there is not much difference over the last handset. In case you already have a Moto G4 Plus, there is no reason for you to go for the new handset unless you want the new age design and fingerprint.

Any Alternative?

LeEco Le Max 2: If you need a better handset in all aspect and do not care about the brand, LeEco Le Max2 is the handset that you should be looking at. This handset has much better processor, double the RAM, much bigger display with Quad-HD resolution and better cameras as well. It is worth a look if you are considering the Moto G5 Plus.

The handset is a pretty good value for money device at this price point. However, if you do not mind Chinese brands, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is much better choice.

This handset is yet to be launched and as such specifications are not confirmed yet. However, all Moto devices come with Screen cast and battery of this device is expected to be 3000 mAh or so.

Hi Megha,

This handset is yet to be launched in the market anywhere and by the virtue of that, we do not even know what camera module would feature on it.  However, like all other Moto handsets, this one too is expected to be quite good.

When the product is out of stock on a website, we cannot say for sure when it will be back in stock. It can be a day, a week or weeks. You can visit Flipkart and click on Notify me to get alerted when it is back in stock.

Google is rolling out an update to its Google App, which will bring Google Assistant to all smartphones. However, the only requirements for using Assistant on your Android phone is that you need to have a device running Android 6.0 or higher, and you need to have 1.5GB of RAM or more, and a 720p display or higher. Barring a few handsets, none come with Google Assistant out of the box. If the Moto device you like satisfies the above requirement it will get the update.

Do not expect superior audio quality here, as the Moto G5 Plus only has a mono speaker. Moreover, there is no audio enhancement technology as well.

To move apps and games to SD card, head over to Settings -> Apps.
Now, select the app that you want to move to SD card.
Tap on Storage and then select the Change option from under Storage used.
Finally, select the SD card and confirm your selection by tapping Move.

There are also third party apps available on the Play Store, which let you move multiple apps to the SD card in one go. AppMgr III (App 2 SD) is one of the top rated apps for this purpose.
