Moto G5 vs Moto G5 Plus: Which Is More Impressive?
The Moto G has been perhaps the leading and world’s most budget smartphone since the year 2013, on which its original model launched. Now, as it receives praises for its "superb value for money," Motorola has unveiled the fifth generation of Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus. The question now is... which smartphone is more impressive?
The 2013 Moto G was the very first handset to appear following its Google's acquisition of Motorola Mobility, according to ZDNet. It was then changed hands again back in 2014 and is currently owned by Lenovo. This year, the Motorola G5 comes in two variants: the five-inch Moto G and the 5.2-inch Moto G5 Plus. The original Moto G costs around $173 in 2013, and with the G5 coming this year the price will be around $205.
The two smartphones have the same screen type, resolution and panel durability. The Moto G5 is 5.0-inch IPS LCD with 1920 x 1080 pixels (441 ppi). It has 65.4 percent screen-to-body ratio and built with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. On the hand, Moto G5 Plus is 5.2-inch IPS LCD with 1920 x 1080 pixels (424 ppi). It has 67.1 percent screen-to-body ratio and also comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
Visually, according to Forbes, there are only a few differences to separate the two Moto devices. However, the Moto G5 Plus is notably thinner compared to the Moto G5, which means its camera projects more. The smaller version is 144.3 x 73 x 9.5 mm (5.68 x 2.87 x 0.37 in) and 145 g (5.11 oz). While the larger one is 150.2 x 74 x 7.7 mm (5.91 x 2.91 x 0.30 in) and 155 g (5.47 oz).
Both cameras of the two smartphones have phase detection focus, LED flash and auto-HDR. However, the rear camera of Moto G5 is 13MP while 12MP for the Moto G5 Plus. Despite a slight decrease in the megapixels, the Moto G5 Plus has a significantly higher aperture compared the Moto G5 which gives it an edge in both high speed and low light photography capture.
Both Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus are extremely impressive at their respective prices, as well as features. They leave an adequate gap between "budget flagship devices" such as the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T to stand on their own. Still, it is the Moto G5 Plus which has more edges, offering a lot greater outlay.
