Even though this phone performs very nice, no major update since the release is a disappointment. They offered quick updates, but it is about one year, only two-three security patch updates received.
I was going to buy a Samsung phone but when i read the reviews that said this phone was significantly better than the Samsung model, I decided to get the Motorola. I'm very happy with the phone. It does everything and more. I notice in previous reviews complain about small things which seem so trivial. It's a budget phone, it does a fantastic job, very responsive with lots of nice features. I ended up buying another one less than a week after my first purchase for my wife.
Front camera not good overall .Back camera in daylight very good.In night need correction

If you look at the actual hardware (aperture and lens size) the G5 Plus has an advantage. Snapdragon has historically been top of the midrange processors from the 625 all the to 660. What made you say Honor's SoC is better? I also disagree with Honor having faster updates. That's actually not true in my opinion. The fact that EMUI is a heavy skin of Android that makes it slower and again historically Honor has been slow with updates.
gar, 26 Feb 2018Costco has these "unlocked" for $179. good deal?Good deal. Just keep in mind, the US version has no NFC and the camera is sub quality. If you would have said $200, then I would have said no, because for example the Honor 7X is being sold for $199 (and a lot of other phones now) and with the same kinda price they offer more. There are a lot of midrange phones (used to be $400-500) from last year offered now at budget price so keep an eye out for them, and probably more budget phones are just about to be released in the next few months.
Gino76, 24 Feb 2018So do u think the Honor 9 Lite's camera is better than the G5 Pus?I don't know, but I had the Honor 6X for a few days last year and it was making a whole lot better pictures. Actually I liked pictures from that better than from my iphone 6S at the time.
Purchased moto g5 plus in 1st February since signal quality is not good as moto g 1st gen... I had rebooted the device... But problems not solved, especially 2 g signal are very week

they have not yet released oreo updates (even though it is stock android)
no special feature (except moto action which are useless)
no led notification
with 3gb ram it costed Rs 15000...too costly
its flash light is yellowish
power button is weak
Moto is a piece of garbage
This is a great budget phone. Good performance, battery life is good. Doesn't lag or hang (so far) but the camera is disappointing. Phones that cost less than Moto G5 Plus have a better camera. Otherwise it's a good buy.

Makes terrible pictures. A $15 toy camera makes better pictures.

This phone is shit! Simple as that. It freezes a lot on me and it automatically restarts when it freezes. Also I have found that quite often people when calling them can't hear me. I have to use speaker phone quite few times though so that they could hear me. This phone is the worst Moto G phone I've owned. Definitely Avoid at all costs!
