Motorola has managed to revive its position in the Indian smartphone market in the last five years. From the budget phones like Moto C Plus to the recently launched Motorola Moto G5s, the brand has been on a roll. The new Motorola Moto G5s is touted and promoted as an update to Motorola Moto G5, but there is no difference as far as performance is concerned. Here’s a quick review that might come handy.
Let’s start by talking about the all-metal body of Motorola Moto G5s¸which is great improvement over G5’s plastic body. The design is not every different from what you would expect from a Moto phone, but the overall look does feel premium. Motorola Moto G5s is priced at ₹14999 for the 4 GB RAM variant that comes with 32 GB of onboard memory, expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card. In terms of hardware, you get a 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, which offers good value for money, but doesn’t really go beyond G5, which is a bummer of sorts. As for cameras, you get a 16 MP camera on the rear and a 5 MP camera on the front, both with individual LED Flash. Expectedly, the device runs on Android 7.1 out of the box, and updates are expected soon. The 3000mAh non-removable battery offers good power for more than 12 hours even with heavy gaming. In terms of display, you get a 5.2-inch full-HD screen, which does feel premium, but surely isn’t the best, especially in sunlight.
Should you buy Motorola Moto G5s?
Talk about value for money, and Motorola Moto G5s is one of the best for the price. Online stores are offering it at a discount, which is surely an advantage. In terms of pricing, Motorola G5s is apt, but it would have to complete with likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, which offer similar features at a lower price. However, Moto is known for making devices that stand the test of time, and G5s is no different either. It is better than G5 in terms of design and feel, but feels underwhelming in terms of performance. Battery wise, it is surely better, and the cameras do click more clearer and crisper images. Not to forget, stock Android performance is exactly what you would want.
Moto G5s is a good step forward for the brand. There are no gimmicks here, which is surely one of the best things. The brand is known for offering great support, which is an added advantage. If you are looking for other options for the same range, Nokia 6 is a good one to consider. Check online now to find more on the deals on Motorola Moto G5s.
