Moto XT1687 reviews

Moto G5 Plus XT1687 32GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Lunar Gray) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 129.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good phone but with many limitations The phone's price point is very good and has better configuration. Camera resolution is good; processing so far seems to be better than my other Samsung low end phone. However, it is not without it's limitations. Phone's call volume is pathetic, speaker phone is also of no use. Phone cannot be used as a phone properly!! Setting phone's wallpaper is tricky; I would say the most awkward way of doing it. The wallpaper picture size has to be of a particular resolution. It does not make any picture fit to the screen . Probably the first phone I have seen to be that way. Probably, the lowest priced Samsung phones are better than this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this phone I bought this after my LG G3 screen started going black, it started rebooting randomly, and no longer recognized its SIM card. But I digress... The Moto G5 Plus is great. Battery life is excellent (could go 2 days without a charge). The camera is quite good, though I haven't taxed it too much yet. Performance is quite good, meaning I have no complaints about responsivity. The expandable memory is key for me - as I already had a Micro SD card. Going back to the issues with the LG phone(s), one of the main reasons I bought the Moto is I'm someone who holds onto phones for a long time, and from what I've read this phone has no known systemic issues. It's a very good, reasonably-priced, workmanlike phone. It's everything I need it to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I very much like this phone I've had the Moto G5 Plus for over a week and love it. I really like the gesture features (turn on camera, turn on flashlight). It is fast, takes nice pictures, and does everything I need. Youtube videos look great. Android 7 is a big improvement over the version I had before. Only drawback is that this version of Android doesn't play too well with so I had to export all my contacts from to Gmail in order to access them. Gmail/Google integration continues to tighten, as might be expected, so if you use Gmail you're all set. I'm not much of a social media person so can't comment on that aspect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend! I replaced my Moto G3 with the Moto G5 Plus. My G3 died and the G5 was in the mail 3 days later with the free delivery option. The G5 has a larger screen, sleeker design and a faster processer with more memory. Before the G3, I had been an iPhone user, but wanted to save money when the prices increased again. I bought the Motorola after reading great reviews and it was the best decision. Once I got used to the Android operating system (which didn't take long), I didn't miss the OIS system. If you're looking to save money and looking for a high-quality phone, I highly recommend the Moto G 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend this phone to everyone I know I have had my Moto G5 Plus for about 10 days, and so far, so good. As far as I can tell it does everything I need a cell phone to do - take photos, check email and social media, play a few games, look at the weather, send text messages. Oh, and, occasionally, to make a call. It meets my needs and then some. There are a few negatives, but they are minor. It is heavier than my old phone, but I've gotten used to that now so it's not an issue. The screen does not have the vibrancy of, say, a Samsung, but it's only noticeable when I compare it to my Samsung tablet. I like being set free from the buy-a-new-cell phone every two years, and appreciate the price point of this phone as well knowing that it will work with any carrier should I need or decide to switch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great midClass smartphone I had an iphone5 but did not have $$ for a 7 or 8. I looked for 2.5 weeks at internet & Utube reviews. I had not really considered a motorola but my study showed the moto G5 plus gave the bestbang 4 the buck. AMazon had it for @185 but full of bloatware & ads, etc. Happened across B&H & paid a little more but no annoying popups, etc. Fast delivery & easy initial setup. Reviews said G5 had low volume but mine was fine. G5 comes with 16G but I bought 32G for more storage. I miss a few iphone features but have about all I need in this Android phone! gret color, clarity, speed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance and value I purchased the Moto G5 Plus as a possible replacement for my 2013 Nexus 5, which was developing age-related problems.� The 2017 G5+ offers similar specs to the N5 at half the N5's 2013 price.� The G5+ has all the performance I need, at a price that won't make me cry if it dies in an accident.� Battery life is much better than the N5 was even when new, and the camera seems completely satisfactory.� I'll be installing it in a bumper case, as the phone's chassis is way too slick for me to handle with confidence.� Sure, I wanted the 3 Gb RAM/64 GB flash version, but the XT1687 meets my needs.� I am hopeful that Moto/Lenovo will follow through and deliver Android Oreo (8.0) for G5+ as "promised".� Android Nougat (7.0) updated itself to a recent security patch level a few days after I started using it.� No disappointments yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highest value in budget phones right now I bought two of this in the last year. Best phone for your dollar in my opinion. Unbelievable battery life, solid camera, and clean version of android. It has no problem running multiple apps and games. I would absolutely recommend this phone to anyone not willing or able to spent $500+ on one of the staples of the industry (Galaxy, iPhone, etc.).
