You get 4 GB RAM and 32 GB ROM for a price tag of ₹14999, but online stores often have a discount, which is an advantage. The internal memory is expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card. Finally, Moto has come up with an all-metal body for Motorola Moto G5s and Motorola Moto G5s Plus, which feels, looks and appears premium to say the last. The design isn’t much different, but to give credit where it’s due, Motorola Moto G5s does feel better than G5. However, don’t expect much change in terms of performance. The cameras and battery life are better although. It runs on runs on Android 7.1 out of the box, and you will get the Oreo update soon. In terms of display, you have the 5.2-inch full-HD screen.

The good

First and foremost, getting a full-HD screen at this price is great. Camera-wise, the phone doesn’t disappoint at all. You get a 16MP shooter on the rear with LED flash, while the 5MP selfie camera also has a LED flash. In terms of performance, Motorola Moto G5s is one of the best you can find, especially if you are a fan of Stock Android. It will compete with Redmi Note 4 and Nokia 6, but even then, Motorola Moto G5s does feel and look better, both in terms of hardware and software. The price cut on online stores is also great.

The bad

There is no change in performance if you compare it with Motorola Moto G5. However, that’s not much of a bummer considering the hike of around $60, as you get better cameras, and even better battery. The display does have some issues in sunlight, and apart from all that, there are minimal heating concerns, especially with extensive use.

Final word

From budget Moto C Plus to new Motorola Moto G5s, the brand is having a good time in the market for sure. As far as Moto G5s is concerned, you can only expect best-in class performance from this one.
