I bought mine from very early from Costco so it had almost no bloatware I hard reset it anyway that removed a couple of google things but ended up downloading some back. love the Radio and durability I am a electrician and have dropped it flat from a ladder left it in the car well below freezing and in the summer's oven like heat it's never gave me any problems it still runs very fast. I use it with T-mobile I put in a 32Gb microSD right away.
I actually really like this phone. I have had it for 3 years now. It has been running smoothly since the beginning. Sometimes is hangs and needs to be rebooted. Other than that, I have not had any issues whatsoever, speed is ok, connectivitiy is good, love my Moto.
I had the G5 Plus for about 2 years after the warranty time ran out I rooted phone it took a while because it was my first smartphone and the first time I tried to root anything so what I wanted was Google camera which it finally worked pretty good the reason it wouldn't install under the present operating system I found out is because it was a 32-bit but the ones you install on XDA website most of them or 64 bits you had to run a 64-bit operating system for the camera to work I finally went back to stock operating system but it was a big hassle because you have to have a certain code to relock it and it was a big deal I now own a Google pixel 3 and I think I will not root it because there's hardly any gain that I see besides a equalizer which is digital I forget what it's called but it goes headphones and maybe more speakers the G5 was a pretty good phone I had no trouble except the root part which was probably mine because I soft bricked it and learned a lot
I used it for three years (bought shortly after release). It started to get very slow in the past year, but usable with frequent factory resets. I bought a Samsung A71 5G to replace it, much much better experience now.
Sanjay, 16 Oct 2020Could you plz tell me which OS exactly did you install it and from where did you get that. I... moreXDA Developers website or app has all the info about rooting and custom ROMs. That's how I learned to root mine and put in Android 10.

Had this phone 3.5 years now and loved it, although just starting to develop a few glitches - doesn't turn self off sometimes so battery runs low and camera can also not work first time. However two things that i will miss when i finally upgrade irethe metal case which i think are much better than plastic and glass, and why are phones getting so much bigger- this is a good size and wish there was something similar. Sadly as all new motorola phones looking to grow bigger i am now looking at moving away from them.
I'm using this phone since Mar 2017.Performance wise it is fine,camera app sometimes crashes,battery backup reduced now,internal storage space used to get low frequently due to only 32 gb memory.No major issues.Still on stock ROM unrooted. Will upgrade soon.
Still using it for 3 years
Working great although it had dropped many times
Happy to use this smartphone it's my 7th phone and my 3rd smartphone after z3 compact and galaxy s2 but I think I'll shift to Iphone soon .
I have been using this since July 2016. No issues. Rear camera takes good. Battery have superb backup. If there cut up current for 3days but this can be manage too. But the issue occurs only for its parts availability in local market. Let's excellent mobile
Still using after for three years. I have replaced the screen once though. This was very cheap to do off Ebay. Best thing I did was root the phone and now it runs Google Pixel Android 10. Much better camera now with the Google Camera with full API control. Overall still a good phone and I have the August 2020 security update!
Solid phone, apps open quickly, operation stable, camera below average, mp3 sound quality poor.
