Motorola G5 16GB Brief Review and Pros Cons:

Moto G5 is a budget device from Motorola for 2017. This time Motorola has gone with a metal build for the device which looks great and feels nice in hand. The display on the front is 5inch Full HD. The color reproduction is good and viewing angles are fine. There is a fingerprint sensor on the front which is quick and accurate. On the back there is a 13MP camera which takes decent shops but nothing special here. On the inside there is Snapdragon 430 chipset which is found in entry level devices like Redmi 3S and they cost 2000-4000 less than the G5. There is 3GB RAM with 16GB of storage. The RAM capacity is fine for normal to heavy usage but the 16GB storage is very less in our view considering the fact that user will get only 10GB usable space. The battery is 2800mAh and supports fast charging. Users have reported heating issues while charging which is not what we expected from Motorola after they messed up with G4 charging issues last year. Overall the G5 is an average device which looks good but has low internal storage and is under powered. We recommend going for Redmi Note 4 instead which is far better device and will cost you less as well.

Should you buy Motorola G5 16GB?

Moto G5 is a good device but feels overpriced at Rs.11000. Heavy users should avoid it as Snapdragon 430 is not that powerful to handle heavy games and multitasking. Redmi Note 4 is a better option in this range which offers better processor, better battery and you will save Rs.1000.
