Motorola Moto G5S Features

Moto G5S is an upgraded version of the popular Moto G5 launched in early 2017. The phone packs in higher specifications in some aspects for the same price as the previous one. 

Design & Display:

Design of the Moto G5S resembles with most of the other Moto phones in this price range. The phone also looks similar to its elder sibling, the G5. It has a full metal uni-body design which makes the phone look and feel better. 

In terms of display, the phone has a 5.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. At this price point, a FHD display is a great value for money.  The pixel density of the display is 424PPI. 

Performance & Storage:

When it comes to performance, this phone hasn't improved much from its previous rendition. It packs in the same Snapdragon 430 processor and 4GB of RAM to power the phone. Given the price point, the performance specifications seem pretty decent.  The phone comes with Android 7.1 Nougat and further upgrades can be expected for the phone. 

In the phone, you would get 16GB of storage internally and it also has support for a microSD card slot which can be used to expand the storage up to 128GB. 


In terms of camera, there is slight improvement from its previously launched sibling. The rear camera has a 16-megapixel sensor with an aperture of f/2.0. On the front, there is a 5-megapixel wide-angle camera which is capable of clicking wider selfies or group selfies. There are two LED flashes in the phone, one of the rear and the other on the front. 

Battery & Connectivity:

On the battery front, the Moto G5S has got a 3000mAh battery pack which can allow up to a day's usage. Moto also provides a Turbo charger along with the phone which can provide 5 hours of power within just 15 minutes.

When it comes to connectivity, the phone comes with a 3.5mm audio jack and a Micro USB port for charging. Other wireless connectivity options include 4G LTE, 3G, 2G, WiFi, Bluetooth and VoLTE

I bought it for my sister last month and she is very happy with it. The camera is very good during the day though sometimes it takes some time to focus. The screen fits well and can be used by one hand. Watching movies is a good experience and also the speakers are loud and clear. What I didn’t like about this device is that the battery is small and once in a while app crashes while using it. But apart from that there is no problem here. I would recommend you to buy this device.
The Good
  • Amazing camera
  • Fast fingerprint scanner
  • Light weight and great body
The Bad
  • Low battery

One of the latest versions of Moto G5 series, was launched with Moto G5S Plus. It is really a value for money phone and has got all the necessary features. But if you are willing to pay Rs. 1000-2000 more, then Moto G5S Plus will be a better option.
The Good
  • 4 GB Ram
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Stylish in looks
  • User interface is amazing.
The Bad
  • Screen size could have been a little more
  • No NFC support
  • Front flash is also not there
