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...

Now we should probably go with xiaomi mi a1 or something similar...

You guys could get the LG V20 for this same price now and that one is a very underrated flagship
Andy Ferdean (25 days ago)
The G5 Plus has the same camera as Google Pixel 2 XL! Too bad the lens and the Motorola image processing isn't as good.

Xiaomi mi a1 is better no argument

Heyo, is this phone compatible with an ATR3350 mic if I use an SC4 adapter for it?
Zaid Ali Khan (1 month ago)
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?

Hardly, I think it looks a lot like all the other smartphones out there. Like 98% of the users, mine is wrapped in a case, so I've forgotten what it looks like.

Why is this phone even on YouTube, Motorola is such an irrelevant smartphone brand, i dun understand why people would spend their money on this garbage.
RealityIsTheNow (1 month ago)
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.

Don't buy this phone if you want to cast your device to a non Google (Chromecast) device, because it won't and you can't connect an HDMI cable to a tv either.

A Viking (2 months ago)
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..

I've owned a lot of Motorola phones and still watch the new phone reviews but they won't put the led notification light back in it. I miss that little light.

Moto G4 is a pretty dope phone, except for the software limitations. There is no restart button, and screenshots are a hassle.

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.

How does this Moto G5 Plus compare to Motorola's original flagship, the 2014 MotoX which I still use today?
ɔuɹlʎ Fɹiǝs (2 months ago)
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.
