Moto G5S Plus Brief Review and Pros Cons:

Moto G5S Plus is the updated version of Moto G5 Plus which was launched a few months ago. Things that have changed are the display size, camera, and storage.

G5 Plus had a 5.2-inch display and G5S Plus has a 5.5-inch display panel. Resolution is same at 1080p Full HD. The display is sharp and vivid and viewing angles are good. There was a 12MP camera on the back before but now we have 13MP + 13MP dual camera setup which helps to give bokeh effect to the pictures. Plus, you can change the background of an object in the picture using inbuilt features. Motorola has done a great job at integrating these features directly into the camera app of Moto G5S Plus. 

On the front, we have an 8MP camera with flash. Front flash is a great addition for selfie lovers and should help in improving quality in low light conditions. Overall both camera perform really well and it is safe to say that Moto G5S Plus offers best camera experience in this segment. On the storage side, we have 64GB internal storage now which was 32GB before in the G5 Plus. 

The processor is same Snapdragon 625 with 4GB of RAM. The hardware is good and G5S Plus is able to handle heavy games easily so it is a good mid range option for gamers as well.

The build quality has improved. Previously the sides of Moto G5 Plus were plastic but now it is all metal. The phone feels very solid in hand and has a premium look. The battery has been kept the same at 3000mAh. You should get a day of backup with a single charge. Moto G5S Plus comes with a fast charger so battery backup should not be a problem.

With these improvements, Moto G5S Plus has become a very solid competitor in the mid range segment. G5 Plus was launched at Rs 16,999 but the improved G5S Plus has been priced at Rs 15,999 at launch which is excellent pricing.

Mi A1 is another good option in this range which can take even better pictures. See our blog post: Comparison of Moto G5S Plus and Mi A1 Plus
