Almost 2 months into use now, this phone is worth the price. My mom is using it and she loves the smooth interface and the stock android which never lags. Heats up sometimes. Camera takes good pictures in the day light. Charges really slow.
The Good
  • Great build
  • Good Camera
  • Battery lasts for a day
The Bad
  • No fast charging option

The Moto G5 offers real value for money. It’s another obvious choice for Android bargain hunters. The battery life of the Moto G5 is typical. On a normal day of mixed use, you’re going to want to charge it up at night. Low light performance is poor and wide-angle front camera is good for group selfies
The Good
  • Part-metal body at a low price
  • Crisp, vibrant HD display
  • Slick fingerprint scanner
The Bad
  • Not the snappiest chipset
  • Not available in the US
