The Lowest price of Motorola Moto G5S Plus in Pakistan was Rs. 29,999.
Motorola has always been one of those companies that are out to do the impossible. To challenge the waves has always been their thing, and with their modestly priced Motorola G5S Plus, it seems that once again, they have embarked on the journey to render all else available in this price segment useless. Let’s see how well it performs when torn apart and observed with a magnifying glass for short comings!
Motorola has kept their G series mainly for the budget segment, and have added on the lineup the modifications that make it much better without it being ridiculously expensive. Motorola G5S Plus is the elder brother of the Moto G5, or the Moto G5S, or the Moto G5 Plus, wait what is going on here! Oh well, before we puzzle ourselves in that mess anymore, let’s get to the review already!
As soon as you take out the box, you will see the most apparent change from the usual Moto G5; Screen Size. The Moto G5S Plus has a 5.5 inches of HD display to please your eyes with over the ordinary 5.2 inches of display found on the Moto G5. Anyhow, moving on. At the back, you will find the signature M with a bump and the emoji styled dual camera staring back at you until you avert your eyes. On the bottom, you will be surprised to find a micro-USB port instead of the USB-C.
On the front, a 5.5-inch panel that is powered by IPS LCD packs 1920 x 1080 pixels of resolution with a pixel density of 401ppi to make your viewing experience worth it. There is no 18:9 aspect ratio to be found here so don’t expect it to be bezel-less or anything. That’s about it I guess, nothing besides the hybrid sim slot is worth mentioning in this department. Oh wait, did I tell you about the front facing camera? Or the fact that the headphone jack is located on the top instead of the bottom? Oh well, now you know.
At the heart of Motorola G5S Plus, you will find Snapdragon 625; an Octa-Core processor operating at 2.0GHz. With 4 gigabytes of RAM to work around with, there is a lot of multi-tasking that you can do with nonexistent lag given that their UI is also quite exceptional and optimized for even the harshest of users. For all your graphic intense work or even just games, Moto G5S Plus packs an Adreno 506 that will serve you good, darn good if I may say. Antutu has gone as far as to benchmark it and score it about 64K! Given that it has a modest price tag and does everything in as much as Motorola way it can, this is quite the smartphone for those that fangirl for anything Motorola!
For example, on the software end, there is a lot to discover and unleash; the fingerprint sensor does more than just unlock your display, it can be made to do a lot more.
The dual camera found at the back of the Moto G5S Plus packs a 13MP lens with an aperture of 2.0 and a 13MP lens utilized for depth sensing. While this may not be the best camera you can find in the market, at this price range, it still performs quite decently despite what you might assume from the paper specifications.
The front camera packs an 8MP lens at an aperture of 2.0 so you can take your selfies and hope to make them gorgeous with their software because God help you otherwise. You can record video at [email protected] and find Gyro-EIS at work when you are not on a straight ground. This department could have been done better but given that compromises had to be made, it is understandable why they were made here.
Let me just blurt it out, the battery is not just enough; 3000mAh. I mean come on, first, you take away the USB-C, and now you are telling me it doesn’t have enough battery to last you through the day? Ugh. Go figure! It still has a decent charging system so you will be able to do quite well with charging the device.
It has a corning gorilla glass 3 for the display, features an FM-Radio, is splash resistant, upgradable to Android Oreo, and contains NFC.
Given that I am a Motorola fan, I would advise you to get this device in this price range because honestly, it’s a steal for those who are brand conscious and don’t want to get their hands dirty with Oppo and OnePlus or Xiaomi. But, they could have done a lot better with the battery and camera segment, and if you really aren’t an enthusiastic user and aren’t obsessed with selfies and social media, this smartphone will do you just fine. If it happens to be anything but that, I would suggest you to tread carefully. Good Luck!
