Best reputed(Motorola) midrange phone
By Vincent Zothankima | 9 Apr 2017
I've been using this phone for about 3 weeks and I'm well convinced its the best phone, with trusted and reputed brand, in this price segment. Camera is awesome(at this price), specially in low light shooting. I don't see how 360 put the camera among the cons, and it really is hard to understand why low light shot was particularly not appreciated. Maybe its a "printing" mistake. CPU is very efficient and OS is clean and free of bloatware which makes it faster and smoother. And yes, this phone is VOLTE.

Except camera Its frustrating
By Ravi Chavda | 22 Jun 2017
Every time I open navigation on some crossroad to find direction, I cursed myself for buying this shit. A basic functionality of magnetometer is missing in this phone. 2nd worst thing in this phone is its audio capture while video recording. It has lots of noise. Moto released a fix but still the problem of lots of noise exist. 3rd negative thing is its lack of different different sensor that exist in MI Note 4(even in redmi3s). After 2 month of use suddenly the default file manager can only play the first file of the folder even if we click on 3rd or 4th video, it starts playing only first video. Hence I compulsory had to install other file manager or had to dependent on google photos. 4th thing is only 16 gb out of which you can only use 9 gb and after installing some apps the space even reduce to 7 or 6 gb. Now talking about camera the only plus point of this phone is its camera. but don't be fooled as there is minor difference in camera quality. At time of launching moto compared its camera technology with Samsung galaxy s7 but in reality even my Samsung galaxy s5 camera is far far better than moto g5 plus(specially in low light condition) other wise cam is nice at this price level. Also one more problem with stock android is that you had to install an app for every other facility like camera filters app, dual account setting app, junk cleaner app etc which is already inbuilt in phones like Redmi 3s prime and others. To end this comment I can only say that moto is not now actual Moto like the previous days. It is now just an other brand phone company by Lenovo.

Good phone !!
By Afzal Ashraf | 6 Jun 2017
For a budget range mobile it's perfect, it has everything that you need in a budget range phone. Battery backup is good, it will last for a full day even with 4G data is on. Performance wise it'll not let you down I've compared with redmi note 4, for a milli second its pretty quicker​ than note 4 !!. And BTW camera, both front and back are great, picture quality, image is much more stable than other phone. NFC supported, not a hybrid sim (at a time you can use two sim and memory card), fingerprint is way better and quick response. The part I'm not satisfied with the phone is speaker, sound quality is low,and at first the bulgy camera seems fashion but eventually if you don't use with a thick back cover it might get scratched so bad. Overall it's a perfect phone for it's class.
