I bought the g5 as a spare phone..
Over all the phone is very snappy, sharp display and nice interface and that fingerprint sensor with all those sensors, is just addictive.. Then u feel like your other main phone is so incomplete without those gestures..
But but but, there is one majorrrrr problem in this phone.. I don't know if its just my piece, I have asked for a replacement.. Its the speaker... Its soooo f*ckd up, that the sound is hardly audible.. Like u literally can't hear anything.. Then when you rotate your video, there is a khrrrrrrrr sound everytime u rotate and for those 2 secs of khrrrrr the sound in the audio suddenly becomes louder, and that makes me believe my speaker is not functioning properly, the sound can become louder, coz for those 2-3 secs it does in the same video..
The speaker quality really is horrible.. Like that's the main thing about a phone.. You watch multimedia and stream videos or play games, the main thing u need is the audio, speakers.. And that just ruins the entire experience..
Battery is fine.. It lasts okay through the day with medium use.. But it does drain about 8-9% through the night on standby..
The main issue with this phone is the audio.. Camera is fine.. Good pictures.. But for 12k I don't know if this audio sound is even justifiable...!
Force Majeure, 22 Mar 2017I would get this mobile, if it was a bit smaller and had a 625 instead of the questionable 430.Agreed. It would have been best to have the 625 coupled with 2/3GB for the Moto G5 version. 14nm for battery efficiency!
Rex, 06 Apr 2017How about the battery backup? It has 2800mah battery only.Battery backup is average.
Anonymous, 05 Apr 2017Read somewhere that the Indian Moto G5 is Amazon Prime phone, which means it comes bundled wit... moreI called and even emailed both Motorola and Amazon about the same issue. They said the apps can be uninstalled and the warranty of the product will not be affected by it. The same applies to the Amazon app widget. Placed an order for the phone only after confirming this with them.

Does anybody know whether this Moto G5 is full HD & does it support USB
Read somewhere that the Indian Moto G5 is Amazon Prime phone, which means it comes bundled with Amazon apps and ads. Can someone confirm it. And if so, is it possible to remove the apps and ads?
Just released in India Amazon exclusive and costs around Rs 12k. Real competition to Redmi Note 4 and Lenovo Note K5
If it had Corning Gorilla Glass, buying this phone was a deal. However, not buying it as this is missing.
