Motorola has made it a tradition to always launch its latest smartphone offerings in India. Overall the device is a remarkable phone in this price bracket, with a good performance and a long-lasting use and a trust of Moto.
The Moto G5 sports a 5.0-inch full HD screen with 1,920x1,080p (441 ppi pixel density), while the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and LeEco Le 2 have a 5.5-inch screen with 1,080x1,920 pixels (401 ppi pixel density).
I think the Moto G5 won't be a bad seller, but then it won't have it easy as the above mentioned smartphones offer a bang for the buck. It is now being sold exclusively in India via Amazon, sales start tonight at 12 AM. The Moto G5 Plus comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor coupled with a 3 GBRAM in contrast to Moto G5's Snapdragon 430 processor. Dual 13MP cameras are also rumored for the new device along with a front-facing LED flash, and front-mounted fingerprint scanner.More news: Guardiola: I'm Here To Win Trophies

For connectivity, this phone offers options of 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, Global Positioning System etc. Today we're going to take a more in depth look at Moto G5's hardware specs and see if it's worth its money. Under the hood, the Moto G5 packs in 3GB RAM and 16GB internal storage further expandable upto 128GB via a microSD card. Both the Moto G5 and G5 Plus offer very similar splashproof design, featuring a metal build along with the signature "M" logo below the Moto Z-like circular camera housing on the back. The Moto G5 measures 144.3 x 73 x 9.5mm, while it weighs 144.5 grams. There is Rs. 1,000 cashback on HDFC credit card, Rs. 500 off on exchanging your old smartphone, and a free 16GB SanDisk Ultra micro SD cards. The dual camera set up is confirmed by the render that accompanied the report. The front shooter is also a wide angle 5-megapixel lens with f/2.2 aperture. Still, the Moto G5, on paper, is a small downgrade as the Moto G4 also came with a 3,000mAh battery. A 2800mAh removable battery with fast charging and 10W rapid charger completes the package.
