great budget phone


The camera is good, but could be better. Screen resolution is great. Fingerprint verification is quite accurate. The thing that makes the Motorola Moto G5 Plus the best budget phone in the world is that, for the most part, it doesn't feel like one at...

Great except for the sound


Everything is fantastic except for the sound of phone calls. With the volume up as high as possible you still have to strain to hear them speak. The camera is really good even in dark lit situations which is very surprising. My battery is lasting at...

Great phone shame about the camera


We have always enjoyed Motorola phones for myself and my wife, they are well laid out and easy to use phones for a great price, so we looked forward to the g5 plus. The phone again is great slightly bigger and faster than the previous g4 plus which is...

Best budget phone on the market


Bought this phone for the wife as I had an excellent experience with this phone's predecessor, and it didn't disappoint! Everything amazing in the G4 Plus is back (camera, speed, snappiness) and it comes with more (NFC, metal back). Overall, this is...

Good phone for the money


to something with an AMOLED, as it can't match it. The phone also appears laggy when reading from a microSD card. Overall, it's a good all-round phone and very good value for the money. It beats other handsets in the price range easily. If you need a...

I love my moto


A great phone. The best dual SIM I have ever owned. With native android 7 and no bloatware, the phone is fast and reliable. Reception for both 3g and 4g SIM is excellent - better than my Huawei P9 or nexus 5 that I had previously. Call selection on the...

Surprisingly good and excellent value !


After 5 years, my phone died, so as a matter of some urgency I needed a phone, I was prepared to buy a 'cheapie' so that I could then take my time to research and decide on a 'proper' phone - did a quick search on Mr Google and came up with the Moto G5...
