Display

The display of the device is not going to have an interesting thing as we see on Samsung S series of devices nor going to have LG and S8 like 1:2 display or something out of the box it is going to be the same 16:9 LCD panel which we see on the devices. Both the models are said to be supported by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 which is useful for safety from normal wear and tear, and still, we will have to get a Screen Guard to save it from impacts. Moreover, in the display part, it’s the same as we mentioned in the specifications part, 5.2-inch, and 5.5-inch of units both with FHD resolution.

Processor

The processor is the new offering from Qualcomm in their budget oriented range the Snapdragon 430 on Moto G5S and Snapdragon 625 on Moto G5S Plus the units and GPU being the stock that comes with the 430 as Adreno 505 and 506 on the higher variant. There is nothing spectacular to note in the processor part, and moreover, its the same which we got in the previous offering from Motorola on both the Moto G5s & Moto G5s Plus.

RAM & Storage

The official statements say that Moto G5s & G5s Plus are going to have a wide range of storage option ranging from 16 GB to up to 64GB Internal Storage which is a good option, the phones will also have dependability options with 256GB of Micro SD Support (2nd SIM). Both phones will have 3 GB RAM variants.

Camera

Moto G5s Dual Camera setup

 

The G5s is going to be supported by a 16MP unit, the main thing to note is the dual camera that is to be on the Moto G5s Plus. The dual Camera setup is still a long way to go for the mid-range segment, and Moto seems to be filling that gap fast and making the consumers get the dual camera without breaking their pocket.

Battery

The Battery of both the devices is around the same with Moto G5s having 3000 mAh of battery. Although both the phones support TurboPower™ which can give charging for up to 5 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes.* Moto is also bundling the TurboCharger and its a kind gesture for the money you pay.

Pricing and Release Date

According to the official reports, Moto G5s and Moto G5s Plus will launch in August, and Moto Z2 and Moto E4 Plus are already launched in this case, but as far as the pricing goes, it is priced above the G5 series and hence will be a little more expensive despite having the same internal hardware. Not all but there are some upgrades which are worth to have.

According to the official report, Moto G5S will be priced at 249 EUR ( Rs.18885 approx.), and the Moto G5S Plus will be priced at 299 EUR (Rs. 22678 approx.) in India. While in the US both devices will be priced between $299 to $349.

The above mentioned are the official announcement from Moto and is making their way to the launch of these devices this month, i.e., August. You can expect these smartphones in the European markets first and then in the global market.

  1. Hopefully, this update will fix the intermittent ringer problem people are having with the G5 Plus. It’s being reported all over the different forums and there doesn’t seem to be any solution. LOTS of people are having the same problem and they’ve treid everything; safe mode, factory reset, turning on/off every setting imaginable, etc., etc. Nothing helps! The phone is kind of useless if you can’t hear the ring of an incoming call or text message!

  2. I have a moto G device purchased in early 2017 and the only problem I am having is network / Wi-Fi Connectivity.
    A smartphone with Wi-Fi Connectivity issues is a useless phone so I had to go buy a Samsung galaxy J7 prime. The moto G phone is now used as a calculator
