2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 20+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • 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

Display

  • Good, sharp, punchy display - color is very good, and viewing angles are great

Software

  • 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

Performance

  • Good all-round speed/performance - both for day-to-day use and gaming

Camera

  • 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
  • A somewhat large camera shutter lag is the one flaw in an otherwise good camera

Audio

  • 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

Battery

  • Good battery life - lasts the work day even with heavy use
  • Fast charging support - gets you six hours’ use in 15 minutes
  • Tends to get a little warm when charging

More

  • Useful water repelling nano coating
  • The choice of a micro USB slot, instead of a USB-C one, is a little bit old-school
