With the Motorola Moto G 5G Plus, the company ushers its most popular series in the 5G era. The company aims to rekindle its old glory by delivering the best value for money mid-ranger much like the original Moto G did back in its day.
For starters the Moto G5 5G Plus is supposed to be one of the most, if not the most, affordable 5G-compatible smartphone in the European market and at a price of around €350. Of course the 5G penetration greatly varies from market to market, so it can't rely on that alone to propel it to fame. Here's what else it has going for it:
The huge 6.7-inch LCD panel offers 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10 support, it has two cameras on the front and a generous 5,000 mAh battery with fast charging support and last. That's an area where Motorola was behind for the past couple of years often using older, less competitive chipsets.
In fact, the Moto G 5G Plus costs as much as Xiaomi's phones with the same chipset, which hasn't been the case for a while. We now need to run our usual tests, because specs can often be deceiving.
The box contains all the usual user manuals along with the 20W-rated charging brick and a USB-A to USB-C cable for charging and data transfer. There's also a transparent, silicone protective case in the box. Not a bad set of accessories, considering the price point.
I agree, LCD is much better. No screen burn-in, and no blown-out, over-saturated cartoon colors. LCD panel colors are true to life, and they don't degrade over time, unlike the aging process of OLED pixels. It really bothers me, thinking...
Motorola has always been terrible at phone and security updates.
Its kinda sad that every decent phone nowadays is with OLED. I would prefer a high quality LCD in upper mid-rangers and budget flagships.
