Motorola, now a subsidiary of Lenovo, has announced that the Moto G5 Plus is coming to the UK in spring 2017. This Moto G has more premium elements than any before and has a rock solid spec sheet. Read on to discover more:
Moto G5 Plus design
The Moto G5 Plus has a precision crafted high-grade aluminium design, diamond cut and coloured in either Lunar Grey or Fine Gold. The shape is more curvaceous than ever and the over-sized camera module on the rear, gives this Moto phone a look that stands out from the crowd.
The 5.2” Full HD display (1920 x 1080 pixels) is perfectly sized and with 424 pixels per inch, even the finest of detail can be seen. Underneath the screen, there is a fingerprint reader that allows you to wake up and unlock the phone in one move. Tap the fingerprint reader again to lock the phone or use it to navigate around.
The Moto G5 Plus hardware includes a very fast Qualcomm Snapdragon octa-core 2GHz processor with 3GB RAM. This is paired up with a 32GB internal memory and a microSD card slot that will accept cards with a value of up to 128GB.
The high capacity 3,000mAh all day battery is well worth mentioning because it supports TurboPower charging. Unlike some manufacturers, Motorola has included the 15W TurboPower charger in the box, allowing you to gain up to 6 hours battery life in just 15 minutes.
Moto Actions make tasks easier and a few examples includes a twist of the wrist to open the camera, two downward chops turn on the flashlight and a nudge of the phone will give you a preview of notifications, without unlocking the phone.
The Motorola Moto G5 Plus has a final few treats for us with a water repellent coating making it splash and rainproof, the Android 7.0 Nougat operating system giving it the latest look and features and finally front ported loud speakers for enjoying unmuffled music.
Moto G5 Plus camera
The Moto G5 Plus has a high definition 12MP camera, paired up with a colour balancing dual LED flash. This camera module uses Dual Autofocus Pixels, where ten times more pixels are on the sensor, allowing it to lock onto a subject 60% faster than ever before.
There is an 8x digital zoom for photos, while for videos there is a 4x zoom. It is possible to enjoy 4K Ultra HD video recording, as well as record video for Slow Motion playback. The 5MP selfie camera is good, but not remarkable, and has a wide angle lens, Best Shot feature, Beautification Mode and Professional Mode.
Overall, the Motorola Moto G5 Plus has a winning combination of features and hardware and, as is typical with the Moto G range, the phone will cost less than other phones with a similar spec.
