So a couple of months after release in the UK the Moto G 5G Plus still does not have 5G support for one of the biggest 5G networks in the UK. This despite knowingly not letting this fact be known at the time the phone was released. You can't sell a 5G phone knowing that it does not work on a 5G network! Motorola heading for a big fallout on this one. Total radio silence on this one, Motorola alluding to it being something to do with Three UK - it's not. Come on Motorola, pull your corporate finger out and get it sorted.
P.S. Motorola have admitted the problem so this is not uncorroborated hearsay.
VegasRooted, 27 Aug 2020Just buy it from Clove UK (4gb/64gb model) or Amazon UK (4gb/64gb or 6gb/128gb models). They ... moreif your on 3G it show 3G/H/H+ (witch USA branded rom phones renames the H+ to 4G) if your on 4G it show 4G (real 4G LTE) :)
in the EU/UK mobile operators are not allowed to fake the 4G icon (changing H+ into 4G, apple did that in australia and got sued)
Anon, 23 Aug 2020Motorola. Please. Please release this in the US. This is the only phone with a high refresh ra... moreJust buy it from Clove UK (4gb/64gb model) or Amazon UK (4gb/64gb or 6gb/128gb models). They both ship to the States. I've ordered probably 20 phones from Clove and a few from Amazon UK over the past three years, no issues. It's always a risk because of difficulty in returning the phone and with warranty stuff, of course...you'll have to weigh the risk vs. the reward for yourself. I just ordered the 6gb/128gb model from Amazon UK using their fastest Global shipping option, for a total cost of $413.31. (The 6gb/128gb model costs a little bit more than the 4gb/64gb model.)
Anyways...I plan on using it here in Las Vegas on T-Mobile. No need for Band 71 for me, I've used LTE Discovery on some Band 71 capable phones and I never connect to that band here anyways, so it's all good. I'm always on Bands 2 or 4 (and occasionally 12), and that's about it. I have connected to 66 on rare occasions also. It will be interesting to see how this phone will perform, but judging from other Band-compatible UK region phones that I've used here on T-Mobile, it should be all good for me.
Be aware, however, that phones with region-specific software from outside the U.S. will almost always NOT display "LTE", even when you are on an LTE band signal. LTE is a term used almost exclusively in North America, where the rest of the world just calls it "4G". So if it only says "4G", you are likely on a 4G LTE band. Just use an app like LTE Discovery to log which bands your phone is using as you travel around town, and that will tell you for sure how well the handset is performing, band-wise.
I want a moto Z4 play with snapdragon 855+ with shoulder buttons and OIS 1080 60HZ good camera and a 90HZ refresh rate screen.
Motorola. Please. Please release this in the US. This is the only phone with a high refresh rate IPS LCD screen with all the bands needed for T-mobile (other than band 71). I would immediately buy this @$400.

Hi smooth... moreThanks a lot!
Your comment really helps.
I actually do prefer wider, bulkier phones. LCD panels also as long as they are sharp because I also use my phone mostly for reading. Even more I find them more pleasant since there is a feeling of certain "depth" compared to OLEDs.
The only downside of this phone seem to be camera quality, but after looking around a little bit it also seems like all other manufacturers made compromises with camera quality with phones with SD765(G) chipset in this price range. That one I will have to check by myself when phone arrives to the stores.
PrasanthG, 12 Jul 2020Yes. Don't buy this phone for it's name. Wait for a model with a trendy name. Then ... moreYou didn't get my point. Since last year Motorola throw a lot of phones in the G line: G8 Plus, Play, Power, Stylus... and if you think about it this phone does not have many commonalities with rest. Different screen aspect ratio, position of cameras, double selfie camera... I don't know why they decided to pick G 5G Plus for this model, but there must be a good reason for that, maybe to make a statement it is a budget device, who knows... In my opinion Moto One 5G would sound much better.
I would like to know when Motorola are going to release software that will allow their g 5G phone to work with a 5g service on Three UK, one of the biggest and 1st UK Network providers to have 5g.
I bought my Motorola g 5G Plus phone in July 2020 for £300 as I wanted it specifically for a 5g service on my provider Three UK.
When I found that there was no 5G option on the network settings I contact Motorola. Only for them to fob me off saying they have 5g software for all the other UK providers but could not test/release Three UK 5g software because of the covid issue. Whilst I understand the gravity of the predicament we are in, frankly that is not my problem. Motorola are a disgrace for bragging about and releasing a 5g phone that does not work with major UK providers! Sort it out MOTO you don't look good at the moment!!
xmarijan, 13 Aug 2020Hi! What's your opinion after a month of use?Having mine over one month.
Well very positive so far
Things I like the most
Hi smoothness , 90hz are great and makes the overall UI experience great
Camera produces great pics true to life colors, so it the IPS screen . Don't let IPS put you off. Color reproduction is superb and also very sharp. More than many AMOLED screens.
Sound is ok. Battery life not outstanding still great , you can get a day easily two with moderate usage. Expect 6/7 hours SOT. My main usage is , emails. Some photos, some media apps like WhatsApp, occasionally GPS and Spotify two (1hour)
Things I don't like
The size , you'll get used to it, still fairly large. At least the 21:9 makes the device easy enough to operate with one hand unlike other shorter 19:9 phones.
I recommend it. Still haven't been able to try the 5G connectivity.
It's Solid device, if you know motorola and you like Google stock experience, trust me , you won't regret.
Hope it helps

It was incorporated in Hong Kong in 1998 and renamed as Lenovo. You are right, Lenovo is listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. But it is a constituent of the Hang Seng China-Affiliated Corporations Index.
as many have commented it does have an e-Compass as per Moto's website (linked below) but, why has GSMArena not included this info?
