Moto G5S Plus Reviews

I can't believe this is better than the phones that follow i

By Madeleine

Only had for 2 weeks, but so far it's great. Lightning-fast and works well even in my low cell coverage area. No glitches, other than the expected non-intuitive stuff Google in the settings. I loved my G4 but it had gliltches, this is a terrific upgrade. The camera is so-so, I haven't tested it in-depth but the pics are about the same as the G4. It has more guidance on the screen, which taught me for the first time how to zoom. It's heavier than expected, quite a bit more than the G4, but I'm getting used to that. It immediately upgraded from Nougat to Oreo, we'll see if it'll go to the new OS. Beautiful color, which I feared would be pinkish but is instead a beautiful wheat-gold. I still don't understand why they gave this phone so many better features than the much more expensive G6 and even G7: I feel like I got a great deal.

Great budget phone

I got this to replace my LG g5 because it was really showing it wear (GPS burnt out, screen burns, and random lag). This phone is good for the price, that being said I think even with all the stuff happening to my LG, the apps opened quicker and the touch screen was more responsive. This is a great phone just don't expect it to compete with top tier phones you might be used to

Enjoying it

I loved the phone but came from manufacturer with bent frame

By Sherry K.
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2018-08-02

The phone worked great as far as volume, no dropped calls, internet connectivity and bluetooth. The screen is nice and large and the pictures I took were good enough for my purpose. I loved the 64 gb space. But the frame had a slight imperfection or bend in it right at the area where the volume button is. The volume button began to stick or not work well in the frame. Unfortunately the bend was so slight I did not see it in order to return it within the 30 days, and we have all heard about Moto exchange program giving you used phones. So my dream of owning a new phone with everything that that works is no more. Also Motorola calls this physical damage and states it is not covered by their warranty and charges me to fix something that came from the manufacturer faulty.

Fabulous Phone!

Not as good as older model (signal) and is shutting down

By Tim
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2018-09-14

The phone is starting to shut down periodically, and I have found other people that have had this issue. The phone pulls up a blue screen when it tries to restart, and you have try to restart it over and over. This is the main reason for one star, as it meant my wife could not be reached when one of our kids needed to be picked up at school. Also, the reception is very poor compared to my wife's old Moto 3 series phone, which although it was low end, kept working like clock work for several years.

The glass display will crack if you look at it hard!! Very weak battery, you'll be charging twice a day if you use it at all! Heats up a lot if used much!! Crashed while online shopping, factory reset doesn't work! Basically within a month you'll have a dead phone with no way to recover or reset! Stay away from this Lenovo phone!
