Moto G5S review summary

The Moto G5S is a good attempt from Lenovo and gets many things right. It's built well, and comes with an excellent battery, a competent camera for daytime shots, and good overall performance. Audio quality is also good and fast charging is a welcome addition. There's no getting around this phone's disappointing low-light camera performance though. At its price, the Moto G5S should be a capable smartphone.

Due to the large surface area & shape of glass over the cameras, it is prone to damage as I found out recently. Repairers could not find a replacement part for the glass so beware if you buy!
