Moto G5 review and analysis

Moto G5 Review: Moto G series of smartphones has a huge fan base in India considering its performance with price. Now, after Moto G4 and G4 Plus, Lenovo owned Moto has come up with new gen G5 series in India. Known better for its performance of its predecessors, Moto G5 plus has huge anticipation among users. However, the series itself has proved the best all-rounder’s in the segment.

Moto G5 price in India is one f the element which does make us have a look at it. Besides its performance and pricing, Moto G5 smartphone has got design update with a fingerprint scanner beneath the display. This is for the first time that Moto is offering a fingerprint scanner for a younger sibling. On the other hand, competitors like Redmi Note 4 are offering a better processor on board. Now, it would be more interesting to see how the Moto G5 will compete with other players. Here we provide you the complete Moto G5 review and more which help you in right pick.

Moto G5 Design and Display:

Discussing the design, Moto G5 is more identical to its elder Sibling Moto G5 Plus. Interestingly, the device comes with only 0.2 inches less than G5 plus which makes it a 5.0-inch phone. Adding more, the smartphone comes with an aluminum body and a plastic panel on the rear. The device fits well in hand, and the chrome lining does provide a great feel from design end.

The front panel of the device gets fingerprint scanner below the display and the Moto moniker on the top. The right edge of the device packs the volume rocker keys and power button. The micro USB port is placed on the bottom edge, and 3.5mm audio out jack is on top. The SIM slots and the dedicated micro SD slots are provided inside the rear panel.

Moto G5 features a 5-inch IPS LCD with a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels, at a density of 441ppi. The display is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top. The provided IPS display does a decent job in all light conditions and automatically adjusts to prevent eye strain.

Viewing angles are great moreover texts and images are sharp. Moto G5 features all display options along with Basic Android in-built features like adaptive brightness. Besides that, you also get moto’s popular ‘Ambient Display‘ feature which lights up the screen when you receive a notification.

Moto G5 Performance:

Moto G5 is powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor coupled with Adreno 505 graphics. The basic variants of the phone get 2GB RAM with 16GB storage on board. The higher end device gets 3GB RAM with 32GB storage on board. However, both the variants of Moto G5 gets a dedicated micro SD slot to extend storage further up to 128GB. The main question arises why Moto is offering only an entry level processor on Moto G5. Another player in the class like Redmi Note 4 packs Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor with a price tag of 10k.

Another neat addition is the Moto G5 users can save photos online in Google’s Photos app. which means users can save their photos without any loss in the original size. Other connectivity options include Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GLONASS, GPS/ A-GPS and FM radio.

Even Moto G5 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box just like its elder sibling. It offers an almost stock Android experience which claims the first in the price segment. The Moto apps which come pre-installed in the Moto G5 offers great gestures like ‘karate chop’ etc.

Essentially, you don’t find any complaint with Moto G5 performance if you are a moderate smartphone user. In day-to-day use, the Motorola G5 handles all your tasks with ease. Fingerprint sensor works well, Apps launches quickly, and you don’t find any fault with gaming as well. The only element in the phone which upset you is the heating issue. The device gets heated up when you play heavy graphic games for a longer period. However, we recommend opting 3GB RAM variant as it provided 32GB storage in built which provides 26GB space free for users.

Moto G5 Camera:

Moto G5 sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and f/2.0 aperture. The camera does support 8X digital zoom and is capable of recognizing QR codes and barcodes. Another 5MP front facing camera is equipped with f/2.2 aperture.

The primary shooter is good with really fast focusing speeds. Daylight shots are good, and the camera captures great details. Though you observe a bit noise and distortion, you don’t find any generation loss in reproducing colors. The essential ease of moto camera remains the same in the Moto G5 range. Even the low light situation won’t disappoint you either, and the sensor adjusts the contrasting lighting conditions.

The HDR mode in the Moto G5 camera helps in improving the dynamic range. However, you get the best in results in auto mode over and over again. The primary camera can record videos up to 1080p with good quality. The 5MP selfie shooter produces some decent selfies which make now less to upload them on social media.

Moto G5 Battery:

Moto G5 packs a 2800 mAh removable battery which Lenovo claims that it lasts for a day on moderate usage. Yet, the battery in the Moto G5 is not up to the mark. You may complain about battery lasting just for 13-15 hours which is not acceptable for a phone from Moto. The provided battery can manage to last hardly for a day on a minimalistic usage.

Moto G5 review battery

Moto G5 is outfitted with rapid charge support with the bundled 10W charger in the box. The battery attains 50 percent in just 30 minutes of charge. This could be credited as one of the noticeable features which other competitors in same category lag.

Pros:

  • Design
  • Stock Android experience
  • Camera performance
  • Image backups via Google Photos for two years

Cons:

  • Processor
  • Battery performance
  • Gets heat on heavy usage

Verdict:

Undoubtedly, Moto G5 is an upgrade over the earlier year’s Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus (review). In fact, Moto G5 is a good smartphone if you don’t throw heavy tasks on it. The updated Android and camera improvements are always enthusiastic to get the best on-hand experience. Pricing is another element where Moto G5 excels in the budget segment.

There are few other devices in the town, but Moto G5 stands top with its performance and brand value. The Google Assistant and Android Nougat stand the biggest attraction in the device which you don’t get in another device at the same price.
