Even though companies such as Samsung and Huawei keep launching high-end smartphones every other month, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to spend thousands of dollars on them. There are always cheaper alternatives that offer reliable performances and Moto G5 is the perfect example of that. Moto G5 is a powerful smartphone that was launched back in February 2017. With that said, today we are going to take a closer look at Moto G5’s hardware specs in order to see if it has what it takes in order to be used as a daily carrier in 2019.
Introducing: Moto G5
The first thing that we want to note about Moto G5 is the fact this is an affordable smartphone. Moto G5 is priced at $189.99 on Amazon which is really cheap when compared to the likes of Galaxy S10 that costs more than $1,000.
Moto G5 is fueled by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 CPU. This is an octa-core mobile processor that clocks at 1.4GHz Cortex-A53. Moreover, the CPU has been paired with an Adreno 505 graphics processing unit and 2GB/3GB of RAM. In addition, Moto G5 is available with 16GB/32GB of internal storage space which can be expanded up to 256GB via microSD card.
Leaving the internal hardware aside, Moto G5 is equipped with an IPS LCD display that measures in at 5.0-inches. The display offers a full HD 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution and a pixel density of 441ppi. Furthermore, the display is coated with scratch-resistant glass.
While Moto G5 might not be the most powerful smartphone available on Amazon, its hardware specs are certainly more than reliable. To top it all off, Moto G5 features an affordable price tag and a full HD display. Therefore, we believe that Moto G5 can still be used as a daily carrier to this day.
