Xiaomi Mi A1 was the (low) budget king at the time of this video. Maybe still is. I use the moto G5 plus as my second phone and it’s not bad. Still no android 8 update which is really lame. Trying to get rid of it to get the mi a1 but nobody wants to buy it...
I'm using this phone for the past two months but I feel like I need a change from android cause that's what I've been using always. I found some good offers for iPhone 5s and 5c on ebay India. Would it be wise to sell this off and use an iPhone 5s?
Brands are for children. Just a way for the marketing mooks to take advantage of ignorant people who are so poor that they think little consumer electronics devices are status symbols or something. This is a basic phone for people who don't want the features of a more expensive one and aren't financially retarded.
Great review. I subscribed about halfway through. Last week, I purchased a G 5 Plus with the 32 GB internal storage to reach .y Samsung Galaxy S5, and really like it.
I do have one question, though. It seems to use a lot of the 2 GB ram. Typically 1.5 to 1.6 of its 1.8 GB. I don't know if that's a problem, or if that's how they're supposed to run. Any light you can she'd on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Want best bang for the buck, it's worth checking out LeEco Le S3 for example unless you're too homegrown for Chinese stuff. Bought one dirt cheap expected it to have some serious problems for the low price tag possibly having to return it, but after freezing a time or two at the start I'm currently using it full time without additional hickups so far. Bought one as some YouTube videos were claiming it to be best budget phone of 2017, getting another as a gift but getting harder to find more..
After owning a G4 plus for a year I'd never get another Lenovo/Motorola phone. It wasn't the worst phone I ever owned, but I can't even have Wifi calling? SCREEN BURN IN ? Battery life is worse after Nougat update. Can't even set screen time out more than 30 minutes? It just has too many "ARGHHH" things about it.
I love my Moto G5 Plus so so much, it's an absolutely awesome phone. My only problem with it is the updates and how behind we are in security patches. From what I've seen, India usually gets the updates first, then over the course of the next 30 days the update is rolled out to the EU, USA, and the UK (which is different from the EU version for whatever reason, brexit maybe). I just got the November patch but other than that all is well.
