Anonymous, 06 Dec 2017samsung a5 2017 or moto g5 plus. Even though I own a A5, I'd say G5 plus because of the software support oreo 8.0, better Camera 1.7f dual pixel lense also 4K video recording also unlike A5 it has a ISO, better fast charging capabilities. Even though A5 has an Amoled panel&Fantastic Battery but that's just about it, if u can cope with keeping still whiles taking PICs & Video due the lack of ISO then go for it. Amoled is just personal preference by the way. But really A5 is too expensive for what it is. G5 cheaper and better.

I even use flip case for my S8 to protect the screen, since there is not a single good screen protector to fully cover curved display... which is pain in the ass, flip case is also annoying but well... better than schratched/shattered screen.

Anonymous, 06 Dec 2017samsung a5 2017 or moto g5 plus. Just go with A2 2017. Especially if you like the premium feel in your hands. Because it's built better, also everything looks nice on it since it had waaay better screen, not to mention ugly look of the back of Moto... it would be forgiving if that ugly camera was of really good quality but - it's not...

Phone works to this day, but still, glass is glass. The Gorrilla glass 4 is pretty tough, but if you drop it hard enough or in a wrong way - you get "spider web"...
anyone got drop test of this phone? kinda hesitating to buy since back is glass? looks easy to shatter/break if accidentally dropped

touch is not good. Sometimes it gives message that sim card is not insterted. Keyboard on screen has very small letters, very irritating

Anonymous, 06 Dec 2017samsung a5 2017 or moto g5 plus. moto g5 plus for the price. screen will be way better on samsung, but seeing the price point moto is far better. Specially in India. In fact you can compare A5 to moto x4 which is preferable over A5 in terms of build quality but all in all both the phones are good. Performance will be slightly faster on X4 but not a great deal. Person who doesn't like stockish android feel should have samsung as the first choice with. Camera quality in day light wont be too different while at low light you have to have photography talent if you are using a motorola to compete with samsung's good imaging capabilities. Front camera - moto x4 way better (although both the cameras are currently showing some lag on X4, which has to be fixed by some update, if you are confident about the stability of your hands then it wont matter that much). Rest is your brand preference.
