Motorola Moto G 5G Plus Review

published on August 3, 2020

This is the phone with the most g's in its name the moto g 5g plus it's got qualcomm snapdragon 765 chip on the inside and it costs just 350 euros so yeah 5g on a budget plus an enormous 5 000 milliamp hour battery and a stable

Stutter-free performance right from the get-go you see that this is a pretty big chunky big phone it's super thick and quite heavy too especially considering that it's a plastic foam

Now still it's comfortable to hold thanks to its narrow shape but it's extra tall and barely fits in pockets now the back is painted in a very intense shade of blue with a

Kind of a weird pattern it's also glossy plastic that gets messy with fingerprints easily now thankfully you do have a case in the box to prevent that so overall this one is a chunky brick of

A phone but it's solidly put together it definitely won't win a design award but it's practical on the right hand side of the moto g5 g plus we have a recessed power button with a built-in fingerprint sensor in it

Above it is a volume rocker and on the other side you have a dedicated google assistant button which is a nice touch that you don't get on many other phones plus the display it features a 90 hertz refresh rate which is a bit of a rarity

Especially in such an affordable price it's the first time we see a fast refresh rate at the price of under 350 euros and also it's an lcd screen though and not the best one around as there is

A bit of a light bleed around the selfie cameras that you notice especially when you fire up the browser or something somewhere where you actually see a lot of white around the cameras and colors on it appear with a slightly

Colder bluish tonality and it's overall not a bad display per se but it's definitely no match for amoled screens that you can now get on other rivals for

About the same price now in the camera department the moto g5 g plus rocks a quad camera system with a 48 megapixel main camera an 8 megapixel ultra wide camera a 5 megapixel macro camera

And a 2 megapixel depth sensor so what is missing here is a telephoto lens you don't get that now the main camera delivers photos with good detail and good dynamic range in some challenging light conditions

Such as bright sunlight peeking through three leaves the camera may struggle but the majority of our shots turned out good enough colors and images are vibrant without being unrealistic and the ultrawide camera and the

Portrait mode on board also do a decent job the moto g 5g plus like many other phones these days also has a night vision mode which brightens photos shot in low light conditions

And it also delivers a good level of sharpness in detail now for selfies you have two cameras here a 16 megapixel main sensor and the second ultra wide selfie camera selfie photos come up with realistic

Photos and the portrait mode on them accurately blurs the background so the phone takes good photos okay enough about the camera what about the sound quality now here the motorola g5g

Plus that's name as a malfuncto definitely impresses it features a bottom loud speaker that provides wonderful sound and is indeed quite loud which makes it great for watching youtube and listening to music even in

Noisy environments now the phone also has a 35 millimeter headphone jack here on the bottom for you to plug in your favorite traditional headphones and not have to worry about

Charging truly wireless headphones that's a nice convenience now under the hood the moto g 5g plus runs a pretty clean version of android 10 out of the box and we're glad that it

Ships with a modern version of android and that's what you expect of course and thanks to the snapdragon 765 processor that's probably one of the best things about this phone is the processor which is quite fast the

Phone completes even demanding tasks such as multitasking and gaming without a stutter on the software side the moto g 5g plus has some cool features for example there's the option to configure a double

Tap on the power button to bring up app shortcuts there's also the moto app which provides an easy way to customize the software another feature we particularly enjoyed is moto game time which gives you a

Small button on screen with several quick actions such as muting calls or notifications or easily taking a screenshot while you're gaming you can even configure up to two

Additional app shortcuts that you can quickly check in the middle of the game which is a nice convenience for the gamers out there now the phone also has a very powerful vibration motor and

That's often one of our biggest complaints about budget phones that usually come with very weak vibration motors that don't provide good haptics here

That's not the case you have strong vibration motor it provides a quite pleasant feeling when you're typing on the keyboard so that's definitely a good thing to have for security the moto g5 g plus has both

A fingerprint scanner and a 2d face unlock feature both unlock methods work fast and are responsive however the 2d unlock system using the face struggled a bit under some angles

Last but not least motorola advertises the moto g 5g plus with its 5 000 milliamp hour battery as a two-day battery phone so how did the battery do in real life well

Maybe it's not quite a two-day affair but a day and a half easily with even heavier use so that's definitely a good thing to have the phone scored well on our custom battery tests

We expected a slightly better score when it comes to 3d gaming where the phone underperformed a little bit but for all else it was a pretty solid but pretty strong performer in terms of battery life

it also supports up to 20 watt fast charging the charger that comes in the box completely tops up this quite big battery again chunky phone big

Battery from zero to 100 percent fully tops up in two hours and 15 minutes which is good enough and there you have it guys the motorola moto g

5g plus that name is a mouthful it's a budget phone with both 5g connectivity a fast refresh rate on the screen good performance now what about the alternatives on the

List of alternatives you'd find the just recently announced oneplus nord that is an extremely solid device it has a better screen amoled screen top-grade camera uh but it costs a little bit more so if you want to save

A few extra bucks this new moto g5 i can't do that this new this new phone from motorola is definitely worth consideration so thanks for watching like if you enjoyed this subs to get our newest

Videos first and i'll see you around you
