Motorola Moto G5S Plus review: Arrival of Dual rear cameras

Motorola’s Moto G series has been certainly the most successful version of the company in India, even though it did not actually design drastically up till the Moto G5. Moto G was undoubtedly the de facto mid-range smartphone for many of them in India, but in the coming last two years, there has been no doubt growing competition from other players, especially the Xiaomi as well as its Redmi phones.

The 2017 Moto G5 series also focuses upon a complete design overhaul. The phones have now a metal unibody design, and of course lots of SKUs. Moto G5S Plus is, no doubt, one of the newer additions that have dual-rear cameras as its highlight. So how does the phone fare upon in terms of its daily performance and that of the cameras that are worth the extra price that is being charged?

Specifications of Moto G5S Plus specifications:

  • 5 Inch full HD resolution display (1080 x 1920 pixels) at 401 ppi
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor at 2.0 GHz
  • 4GB RAM + 64GB storage (expandable)
  • 13MP+ 13MP rear camera (RGB and Monochrome sensor)
  • 8MP front camera
  • Android Nougat 7.1
  • 3000 mAh battery5
  • Cost is Rs 16,999 for 4GB RAM

What is the design of MotoG5S Plus:

The design is indeed very Moto. It reminds one of Moto G5 Plus, except that there is a huge dual-rear camera at the back. The Moto G5S Plus is indeed a bulky phone and has a camera that does stand out on its own. On the front part, Motorola has an all-glass cum pill-shaped home button. This mobile has a no doubt a metal unibody design that does become quite common across the board.

The fingerprint scanner is actually embedded in the existing front button Moto has also an added on-screen home buttons, which do come alive when one is using the phone. Frankly, this seems like a waste of space on the Moto G5S Plus’ 5.5-inch full HD resolution display.

Moto G5S Plus is of course on the heavier side. It has a gold colour version as well, but evidently, this is not a color that everyone will approve of. Some users may not like this sort of color.
