Moto G5S Plus is the successor to the Moto G5 Plus smartphone with worthy upgrades
Hello Moto!! Well the Moto fans are quite familiar with this phrase as every Motorola phone greets you like this for the first time but when you have Moto G5s Plus in your hand it feels amazing as you know you got the best Smartphone from Moto in the budget price range. Here’s the quick hands on the Moto G5s Plus and our initial impression on it.
Design & Display
The Moto G5S Plus is purely made of metal rather than its sibling Moto G5 Plus made with half metal (top and bottom frames are made of plastic). It looks like Motorola didn’t take Make In India initiative seriously compared to Xiaomi Mi A1 which has been made in India. While the Moto G5s Plus look premium with its design although the dual camera in the circle looks odd a bit.
On the top you’ll find the 3.5mm headphone jack and at the bottom there are speaker grills with Micro USB port along with a mic while at the sides of Moto G5S Plus you’ll get Sim slot and as usual it’s Hybrid Sim Slot which means you have to choose either between expandable storage or a second SIM.
If we talked about the Display, the G5S Plus has a bigger 5.5-inch display with (1080 x 1920) pixels resolution. Remember the PPI density in G5S Plus is reduced to 403 PPI from 424 PPI seen on the G5 Plus. Underneath the Display you’ll get fingerprint scanner which is quite fast enough to unlock the device.
Hardware & Performance
Moto G5s Plus is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset clocked at 2.0 GHz and come with Adreno 506 GPU along with 4GB Ram and 64GB Internal. What’s Great is the Motorola’s memory management which helps juice out the background apps as it doesn’t keep more than 10 apps in the memory.
Additionally, Moto has tweaked the UI with some important shortcut like – chop 2 times to open the flashlight or twist your wrist to open the camera app without unlocking the device. Well in my Performance test the phone got heated a bit and then too much while only by I was testing its camera capabilities.
The device runs pure stock Android 7.1 Nougat with surprisingly June 2017 security patch on top. After that, it didn’t receive any security patch.
As per the Camera aspect, it has an amazing camera with the Dual power of 13Mp+13Mp with f/2.0, autofocus, wide-angle lens and dual-LED flash. The Daylight photography is just amazing as it takes every details, colors and depth closely but in the low light condition it’s below average, it lacks every detail in the photography. The camera is capable of recording 4K videos as well.
As per the bokeh effect, The Moto G5s Plus create a very good depth bokeh effect but only in good lighting condition a little bit dark side in picture and the bokeh feature won’t work and also its take a bit longer to create the bokeh effect picture about 6-7 sec while its close rival Xiaomi Mi A1 takes about 2-3 sec only
The front camera consists of an 8-megapixel sensor with a f/2.0 aperture, wide-angle lens, and an LED flash and clicks quite a good selfie picture.
The Battery is ordinary just like others Snapdragon 625 device with a 3000 mAh non-replaceable battery it makes sure Moto G5s Plus keep on ticking till 5-6 hours on moderate use. Thanks to Turbocharge which refuels the Moto G5s Plus in just 90 minutes fully.
The Moto G5s Plus has every aspect from Dual camera to Metallic design body and Pure Android experience to make it stand on the top of the Everest of the Mid-Budget category for Rs 15,999($242) The camera is on par when it is opened to a good lighting condition, the Metallic design feels premium and nice to hold in your hands, the Pure Android Experience with 4GB Ram make sure you don’t experience hiccups with the heavy apps. Although the Xiaomi Mi A1 standing in front as a much worth competitor while the Moto G5s Plus seems a praiseworthy upgrade compared to the Moto G5 Plus. The Recent update on Moto G5s Plus has already tweaked its weaknesses.
