Moto G5s Plus is a model that fits quite well into the mid-range product below 350 $ and has certain details that make it interesting. We tell you the impressions that have left us this device that comes from the hand of Lenovo to the market.

With Android Nougat operating system, hardly any modification and here we bring you our analysis of the Moto G5s Plus. A smartphone that goes from the 5.2 inches of the previous model to the 5.5 inches with Full HD resolution, so popular among premium mid-range phones.


2017 has been a year of evolution for Motorola. The famous Moto G gave the jump to the metal with the Moto G and Moto G5 Plus, but not that it left us a great sensation since a notable part of the rear was still plastic. The feeling was good, but it was better.

The new design is still familiar since it is as if starting from the design line of the Moto G would have been inspired by old models of HTC (or even OnePlus 3). However, this change feels wonderful, and the back of the mobile looks fantastic. Not everything is perfect, as the double camera still protrudes in a circle.

Moto G5 Design

If you look at the front, there are few changes compared to its predecessor. The fingerprint reader, call headset and “Moto” logo are still present in the same location, although we have a front flash for the selfies as a new companion.

At the rear, which is very clean and clearly seen from the outset that there is no compatibility with Moto Mods. The Moto G5s Plus is splash resistant, so it’s an added must be kept in mind. To summarize: aesthetically the smartphone meets, but not be the most striking in the market.


Once again, this year’s Moto G incorporates an IPS LCD panel, although it is now smaller with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, density is 401 pixels per inch and protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.


Display Panel quality is good in all aspects, has wide viewing angles and an appropriate level of brightness for outdoor use. The company maintains two color configuration options: A ‘Standard’ mode and a ‘Brilliant’, the first for those who want more natural colors and the second for those who want a more saturated.


There are important changes in the camera section of this series Moto G5, particularly in this model Plus we found a 13-megapixel camera with 1.4-micron pixels and an optical aperture of F/2.0.You can work with depth of field, and the results are convincing with good light, but something worse when the brightness is not the best (for excessive or lack of it). The application, simple and correct, is not bad and allows to record at 4K.

The front sensor is 5 megapixels with its own flash and wide angle. In short, the Moto G5s Plus is a component model, with interesting details, but that lacks in some of them.


The processor and RAM that are integrated into the smartphone are a Snapdragon 625 eight-core -GPU Adreno 506- and 3 or 4GB, respectively. This allows a correct performance and does not disappoint in the midrange (with some point of suffering from the most advanced games). Storage is adequate, as it rises to 32 or 64 gigabytes with expansion options. And, the battery, has a load of 3,000 mAh, which leaves a range that we liked in general lines but not fully convinced – and do not lack fast charge.

The connectivity is well resolved, as it does not lack the Moto G5s Plus to be able to use NFC, Bluetooth and even the FM radio.
