So what isn't made apparent (and I've only just found out having purchased this phone) is that you can have an SD card OR a second SIM. But not both.
After having to return the G5 purchased in May last year because the second SIM was only 2G compatible and there is no longer 2G availability in Australia (the major carrier switched it off before the G5 was released here and the promised update to allow 4G/3G compatibility never eventuated), I've now discovered that it's not possible to have 2 SIMS plus the SD card as I could in the G5.
Motorola do a pretty poor job of outlining "limitations" in their specs.
I'm just hoping the extra internal storage will negate the need for the SD card.
nitsar, 03 Jan 2018G5S has high vibrator motor .Also according Motorola scandic, G5s have Samsung S6 camera sens... moreThanks for that nitsar. I wonder if you have found any youtube video/recording of the G5S vibrator? I can't believe that this phone went to production with such a loud vibration motor! Thanks again!
G5S has high vibrator motor .Also according Motorola scandic, G5s have Samsung S6 camera sensor.Also radio works from speaker without phones connected.
I have both Moto G5 and G5S. Can someone confirm that the vibrator motor of G5S is MUCH MUCH MUCH louder than that of G5? The seller claims this is normal, but I really want an opinion from a G5S owner. Thanks.
AnonD-722045, 12 Dec 2017Sir for me GR3 is better because HiSilicon Kirin 655 is almost thesame power as Snapdragon 625... moreWhat? Hisilicon 655 has no a72 cores. and its not as powerful as snapdragon 625. soo.. wat r u sayin?
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2017moto G5s or GR3 2017 is better??? Sir for me GR3 is better because HiSilicon Kirin 655 is almost thesame power as Snapdragon 625 but the cores of HiSilicon Kirin 655 is similar to Snapdragon 650 series 2 of its powerful Cortex A-72 cores have high GHz while the 4 cores is on average GHz cause its only for battery life and energy effeciency cores while HiSilicon Kirin 655 of GR3 has 4 of its A-53 is powered at 2.1GHz while the 4 other cores is powered at 1.8GHz on Snapdragon 430 of Moto G5S 4 of its cores is powered at 1.4GHz while the other 4 cores is powered at 1.1GHz so in performance i prefer GR3 but in GPU hmmm I DONT KNOW because adreno is way better than mali but mali T830 is pretty better than adreno 505 also G5S has update to 8.0 Oreo in the future so u prefered:)
AnonD-136729, 07 Nov 2017camera quality is way better on g5 plus at same price. Consider that one for camera I use alternative G5s and G5 plus ,as business phones offered . Camera quality in selfie camera in G5s is much better than g5 plus .Now included led flash ,more sensitive lens .Back camera's have led between brighter and soft when need.All led can use also with continue lighting during photo/video by stock software. Using a kind of straight beam .In full dark room bright well to take good photo at 1,5 m .GPS lock in 1-3 second in G5s .Updates on G5S plus latest on july 2017 .On G5s latest October 2017 .Overall construction looks better on G5s. More metal ,brighter mode screen ,better battery management .There is no notification led on both of them .This is also problem when charging battery.Don't know when is full charged .Attention about battery.Ιn some version there is no removable battery on G5S.
Some version maybe have not compass .Phones available from UK over Europe, mentioned have together with NFC function .Another question not answered for sure ,if the phone have notification led or maybe able by application . There is also a motorola application do that from the past.
How long the battery remains once it is fully charged? Considering the processor can one go with this?
