You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more.

My second Moto G purchase on B&H. First one purchased 3 years ago is still in use after needing some warranty repairs at no charge. Expect that this one will perform just as well. Package arrived in excellent condition and on time. Product is exactly as expected and makes for a good phone you do not have to be overly concerned about because of price. Would buy again from B&H if needed.

Decent phone for average use

I have been using Motorola phones since RAZR (around 2004-2005) before switching to ASUS ZenFone at the end of 2016 because I was not happy with my Moto E (1st Gen) after Android 4.4.4 update made it really slow, but otherwise, it was strongly built phone. Unfortunately, ASUS phones didn't meet my expectations in terms of quality, so I decided to go back to Motorola and purchased G5S Plus which has nearly the same specs as my previous ZenFone 3 Deluxe. So far, I'm completely satisfied. It has a slightly larger screen, a bit more ergonomic body design, and dual cameras at the back which I rarely use but they are still better than one. I hope it doesn't break within 2 years like both of my previous ASUS phones. All my previous Moto phones usually served me for at least 3-4 years and kept working at the time of transition to a newer model.

still a good phone

Love the Moto G5S Plus unlocked phone. It came preloaded with apps and ready to go. Very user friendly. I was reluctant to use smart phone features but it's becoming inevitable, so I'm learning gradually. The price was right. The technology is current and similar to Iphone. My Iphone 7 Plus is comparible in size to the Moto G5S Plus). I have it for Facetime. But yippie, this android has a similar feature called Duo, love it. My only concern so far is, daily download updates, which seems to be the same one (idk). Still happy with phone and performance.

Does this phone take high quality photos?

Does this phone take high quality photos?
Asked by: Laryssa
Takes photos similar to most cell phones. Like most cell phones, if the subject isn't moving, there is good light, and the subject is close, it will take a good photo. If you want good photos in the situation where all three of these conditions aren't met, you'll need a camera with a real zoom and bigger sensor.
