Apple, Google and Samsung keep launching high-end smartphones that are becoming more expensive with each year. Even though these flagship smartphones might deliver impressive hardware specs, having to spend a small fortune on them is just not worth it. Fortunately, there are always cheaper smartphones that can be used as an alternative and Moto G5 Plus is the perfect example of that.
Introducing Moto G5 Plus
It’s been almost two years since Motorola launched Moto G5 Plus. Although, this doesn’t mean that the smartphone doesn’t have the “chops” to become a daily carrier. The reason why we are saying this is because Motorola designed Moto G5 Plus with a single purpose in mind, and that purpose is to create a smartphone that offers reliable performances for a cheap price tag.
Cheap Price Tag
As previously mentioned, Moto G5 Plus ships with a cheap price tag. The smartphone’s starting price is $159.72 on Amazon and it goes up to $229.99 if you choose to pair with more RAM and bigger internal storage space. In fact, let’s see what hardware specs Moto G5 Plus has to offer.
Now that we presented how much Moto G5 Plus costs, let’s take a look over the smartphone’s key hardware specs so that we can refresh our memories. Moto G5 Plus ships with a 5.2-inches IPS LCD display that offers a full HD pixel resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. Additionally, the display has been coated in Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for extra protection against screen cracks and scratches.
When it comes to hardware power, Moto G5 Plus is quite impressive. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 (14 nm) which is an octa-core processor that clocks at 2.0GHz Cortex-A53. The processor is also paired with an Adreno 506 graphics processing unit and 2GB/3GB or 4GB of RAM.
