Rating: Moto G5 Plus
If the rumors are true, the Moto G5 Plus, compared to its predecessor, the Moto G4 Plus, is the only improvement that has a much larger internal memory and a faster camera. In other places, however, the smartphone has even deteriorated: Thus, the screen is smaller than before, which users probably as a pre-or disadvantage. Furthermore, the resolution of the camera is lower. Because the predecessor Moto G4 Plus excels at the camera (at least in daylight), it remains exciting, which quality the camera of the G5 Plus really brings. As long as you do not need a large display, the G5 Plus model is a recommended smartphone in the price class around 200 euros.
