2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Top-grade metal build, offering a significant improvement over the Moto G5 Plus - this is the best-looking Moto G phone to date, and the build quality is comparable to much more expensive phones
  • Accurate/fast fingerprint scanner in the bezel below the screen
  • Good, sharp, punchy display - color is very good, and viewing angles are great
  • The scanner can also be used to replace the on-screen soft keys - a left swipe is ‘back’, a right one brings up recent apps - a useful feature carried over from previous Moto G phones
  • Like other Moto phones, the Moto G5S Plus uses a virtually untouched version of Android rather than a custom interface - keeping things nice and simple
  • The simple but useful Moto add-ons remain of course, including the Moto Display (ambient display notifications), and added gesture support
  • Good all-round speed/performance - both for day-to-day use and gaming
  • Pretty good dual rear camera setup, allows for a reasonably good bokeh effect - dynamic range enhancement is excellent too
  • When compared to the dual camera setup of it's main competitor the Xiaomi Mi A1, it outperforms the Mi A1 in low light conditions (although in well lit conditions, the Mi A1 tends to be better) - in fact in low light photography, it is arguably the best budget camera phone out there
  • The front camera is decent too, and has a pretty effective flash
  • Decent speaker - its pretty loud and has the extra shot of lower-frequency power needed in a tiny speaker to avoid sounding reedy and harsh
  • Good battery life - lasts the work day even with heavy use
  • Fast charging support - gets you six hours’ use in 15 minutes
  • Useful water repelling nano coating
  • Looks pretty good, with a beautiful, tall edge-to-edge display
  • Also pretty thin (7.5mm), and light (very manageable at 152g) - so it's easy to handle
  • On the whole, as far as phones with extra-large screens go, this one is fairly easy to use and handle, and that's a big plus that goes in its favour
  • The texture of the rear shell also makes this phone easy to grip
  • The fingerprint sensor on the back is surprisingly well within reach, and its slightly oblong shape means that it's hard to miss - it's also fast and accurate
  • There is also Face Unlock that works pretty well in most conditions - not quite as accurate as the iPhone X, but not far behind either in real-life conditions
  • The quality of the large display itself is very good - it's crisp and bright, with punchy colours and excellent viewing angles - everything from text to movies looks great, and you will find ourselves feeling immersed especially with video
  • Oppo's custom skin on Android, called ColorOS, is pretty expansive but also quite polished (with a lot of elements inspired by iOS
  • Bloatware is thankfully restricted to a few apps - Facebook, WPS Office and Amazon's Shopping and Prime Video apps
  • There are also useful add-on features like Clone Apps, Game Acceleration, and Gesture support
  • Good, reliable performance throughout - compares well to its main competitors like the Honor 9i and Vivo V7 Plus - and is generally similar to Snapdragon 625 in terms of performance
  • Strong connectivity suite - the Helio P23 chipset supports Dual SIM, Dual standby, as well as simultaneous VoLTE/ViLTE on both SIM slots
  • Pretty decent rear camera - does well even in low light, details come out well, and colours pop
  • Videos also come out quite sharp and smooth under different lighting conditions
  • Very good front camera too - does a very good job in most conditions, and there is also a whole new "AI-powered" selfie enhancement feature - easily one of the best selfie cameras you will get in this price bracket
  • The built-in speaker is decent, delivering generally clear and rich audio in games and videos
  • Good battery life - you will be able to get a day and a half of usage out of the Oppo F5 on a single charge, with moderate use
  • On the whole, its a good all-round phone and comes out ahead of competition like the Vivo V7+ and Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • A somewhat large camera shutter lag is the one flaw in an otherwise good camera
  • Tends to get a little warm when charging
  • The choice of a micro USB slot, instead of a USB-C one, is a little bit old-school
  • Average bundled headset
  • No support for fast charging - takes about an hour to get to 50% charge
  • Uses the older Micro-USB port instead of the more modern Type-C standard
