My screen light is staying on from last couple of days. I mean in my settings, I have selected that screen should sleep after 15 sec of inactivity. But that is not happening sadly. I have to manually close the screen from the lock button.

sorry to say the link you have posted is not working.
I am not sure, but I think Moto g5 plus does support bless peripheral mode.
It's a feature of Android 5.0 and above.
But I am not sure. I may be wrong.
Aashirwad1, 27 Apr 2017I think you will be satiI think you will be satisfied by OnePlus 3t
For me price was a consideration.
I was ok with the compromises made considering the price.
So I bought Moto g5 plus

I will suggest you 3t
Or wait for OnePlus 5.
Xiaomi mi6 is also good if you are ok with MiUi
And absence of headphone jack

A lack of any image stabilisation, poor camera processing, poor-ish memory management, bland photos, poor low light, slow updates isn't gonna boost confidence for someone looking just a tad a bit more..A higher mid-range yet still remaining affordable and half the price of an expensive iPhone or Galaxy.

Yes it may introduce bugs but all software updates do. And don't get me started on some conspiracy about these OEMs deliberately introducing such bugs and issues along with their updates. At the end of the day it is still important (specially security ones) and someone who updates their devices slowly is still a turn off to some. That is why Google is doing something to encourage OEMs to implement monthy security updates quicker; the main reason i think such devices get slower Android update is because of skin and bloatware. Yes I know what you are going to tell me. Samsung is a major culprit in this. But Lenovo-Moto has an almost pure Android UI so theres no reason updates will be slower. Look at Sony. An almost pure OS with few bloat and now 7.1.1 is being pushed slowly to their devices.

As I said all the reviews I read/seen pints to a camera that is weak at low light. When you took a photo was it on Auto mode or Pro mode?
How to enable volte on this device because it's written that it does support volte

But it's good if not the best
Lack of OIS creates problems in low light and also for videos.
But if you maintain a steady hand it works.
Even Google Pixel doesn't have OIS, it has EIS, but still is regarded as one of the best camera in mobile phones due to its software processing making use of gyroscope sensor to compensate for hand shakes.
Low light pics with Moto g5 plus are not great but not bad either.
So the camera in Moto g5 plus is best for the price you are paying for.
As for Ram management I feel it's not a problem. I won't say that it's poor. Again not the best, but good.

Lenovo P2 pros
:Massive Battery, Amoled display, Speakers
Lenovo P2 Cons
:average camera, washed out pics
Reason why I bought Moto g5 plus over Lenovo P2
1. Camera is definitely better, better hardware but not so great software post processing.
Its not the best camera in mobile phones, but in the price bracket it's really good.
I use my mobile camera a lot. So for me it's was an important factor.i wanted the best for what I was paying for.
2. Android Updates : some people don't care about updates, reason why I do is it makes a phone feel new and I can use it for 6 to 8 months more before it shows signs of hanging or poor RAM management and force stops. I like to use my phone as long as possible and like to use new versions of software.
Also not to forget the importance of security patches.
Sometimes update is like a gamble because it may bring bugs and your phone my be compatible but not capable to make full use of the update.
Some people don't care for updates like my Father, who will have to learn new things again if the update brings changes in the launcher. So it's ok if the phone is not updated for him even if security updates and firmware updates are actually important
So to answer ur question, Moto g5 plus is not the only best budget phone
I feel Lenovo P2 is also great
It boils down to what you want to do with your phone.
If media consumption is more important battery is needed.
Personally I think I can buy a power bank to increase the battery, but I cannot do anything for smartphone camera if it's bad
So I bought Moto g5 plus because it ticks all the right boxes for me.
Paul, 26 Apr 2017Hello, can any Motorola Moto G5 Plus owners tell me, If G5 Plus is dual SIM only? Yup it supports dual sim and has dedicated micro sdcard slot
