Reviews of Motorola Moto G5 Plus

General Reviews of the users are as follows:


  • 4 GB RAM in this price range.
  • Good Display
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 3 Protection..


  • The device gets overheated.
  • Camera Quality could have been better.
  • Loudspeakers are not much loud.

The Motorola Moto G5 Plus has been launched in 2/3/4 GB RAM variants. Taking the 4 GB RAM device into consideration, this device is a very good device for day to day use. The lag free performance of the device thanks to the 4 GB RAM. Motorola has used the Snapdragon 625 SoC which is quite popular SoC among the low range device powered by an Octa Core Processor clocked at 2 GHz. The clocking of this device at 2 GHz might be an issue as people have reported overheating of the device. This device also has a full HD display with a good GPU. You can play most of the high end games in this device without any lag.

Overall this device is one of the best device under 17k INR range. I would personally prefer Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 over Moto G 5 Plus.
