Ups the design and cuts the price

Motorola Moto G5 Plus

Refreshed from top to bottom, the Moto G5 Plus has redefined itself and it didn't even have to. The premium build, competent specs and low price will suit deal-seekers and phone enthusiasts alike... Full review

A good, but not game-changing smartphone

Motorola Moto G5

from The Indian Express
There aren’t many faults in the Moto G5; still it is hard recommending this phone. Instead Moto G5 Plus seems a more better proposition, even though it is more expensive. Essentially you’re paying for a better processor, more storage, a better camera, and a larger screen. The G5 Plus is clearly a better phone over the G5. If you’re not interested in either of the phones, the Redmi Note 4 might be the better option... Full review

A rock-bottom bargain for your everyday essentials

Motorola Moto G5

from Cnet
The Moto G5 is the phone to get if you want an everyday phone for as little possible, but if you want higher-end features like NFC then go for the G5 Plus... Full review

Back to being the best mid-range phone

Motorola Moto G5 Plus

from Talk Android
The Moto G5 Plus looks way out of its class. Where else are you going to pay $229 for a phone that’s made of metal? Better yet, where else are you going to pay $229 for a phone that’s anywhere close to the Moto G5 Plus on paper? Lenovo’s latest mid-range offering is one of a kind. The design is remarkable considering the price, the performance is as smooth as a $400+ phone, and the battery life goes the distance. Not a single company or phone can compete... Full review

Low price, impressively powerful

Motorola Moto G4

from TechRadar
The Moto G4 is an impressive improvement upon older generations of Motorola's most popular handset and it may well be the best phone you can buy on a budget... Full review

Simply the best budget phone

Gives a whole bunch of phones a run for their money

Motorola Moto G5 Plus

from Droid Life
Should you buy a Moto G5 Plus? Well, let’s talk about this. Is your budget under $200? Then yes, buy the Amazon ad-filled version at the link below and love life. Is your budget under $300? Then yes, you’ll still probably enjoy life with a Moto G5 Plus by your side, because at $299, you can even upgrade to 64GB of storage and 4GB RAM. With those budgets, you are getting quality hardware, speedy and clean software, a solid camera experience, ridiculous battery life, and connectivity on your favorite wireless carrier...

Unbeatable battery life bettered by mods

Motorola Moto Z Play

from Pocket-lint
It's big, fast, and lasts a full day without even breaking a sweat, which makes the Moto Z Play one of the best options for people wanting a phone with seemingly never-ending battery life. The Incipio Mod attachment takes battery to the next next level too. Sure, the Z Play has its minor quirks and the Mods are going to polarise opinion - especially given their price - but the Z Play is a solid phone and a prudent investment for those looking to not break the bank on a phone...

Everything the Moto G5 should have been

Motorola Moto G5 Plus

from Alphr
For years, the regular Moto G has been the one to go for, while the Moto G Plus version hasn’t been worth the extra cash. This year, the roles have flipped – and if you’re a keen photographer, nothing comes close in this price bracket. Or the one immediately above it, for that matter. I really can’t overstate how great the camera on this phone is, given most budget phones cut corners on the snapper... Full review

The pinnacle of budget smartphones

Motorola Moto G5 Plus

from TrustedReviews
Once again Moto is owning the budget smartphone space, going for usability over flashy marketing and bloated specs. The G5 Plus offers a good camera, clean software and a day-long battery all all for £249.99. The design isn’t quite to my taste and the display could be a bit more colourful, but really you’re not going to get better at this price. My only other suggestion would be the excellent Lenovo P2, but that's a very large phone... Full review
Nothing special compared to what's available on the market with those specs. Better off buying an iphone or Samsung.

since i have gotten this phone, ive had nothing but problems.

Motorola Moto X

This phone doesn't have a block number feature, the backing pops off too easily and its hard to find a decent case for this phone. Ive had two of these phones, one being a replacement and the battery is expanding and it shuts off saying its dead even though its fully charged.

Like I say, I need to have a call or e-mail to figure it out how I can pay all that without income in my life because, I don't have any revenue presently. Maybe you can call be back and we will discuss about this cell phone I don't use and make an arrangement, Talk too you soon & I will bring my phone so you will see the problem but it's just then one problem and they continu to bill me before avertissement so I don't know what to do with that :\

Really Good for the price!

Motorola Moto G

I've been using this phone for less than a year, but so far so good! I have no complaints about anything other than the amount of storage available on this phone. I would buy again

Buyer Beware

This phone has a major design flaw - it won't allow you to disable the Google now launcher or any Google app so if the apps are unstable you are basically screwed. For me it kept launching and simply disabling the app would have fixed this but I didn't have the option - you can't uninstall it. It also doesn't come with a decent music player so you have to download an app (ad-supported or you pay), it doesn't allow you to put it into silent mode, only vibrate or volume unless you want to turn off all sounds including your alarm, it doesn't come with a pre-installed texting app, disabling Moto Actions still does not allow you to turn off the "shake to activate camera" option it only works in turning off the instant flashlight, you can't save pics directly to sim card you have to manually drag and drop them there, and the list goes on. Highly uncustomizable phone and the longer you have it the more of a pain in to a$$ it becomes. The people at Motorola are clearly lacking in common sense to make a phone like this. Only plusses are the camera quality (although it's difficult to zoom and focus), and the battery. DO NOT BUY!

About Motorola

Motorola proved the naysayers wrong and got this whole crazy cell phone business started back in the 1980’s when they produced “The Brick”, a large, um, ‘portable’ cell phone that was short on looks, but worked!

Show more

Shortly thereafter, business really took off when Motorola came out with the StarTac, a sexy flip that was futuristic by anyone’s standards at the time and a huge seller.

Since those early days, Motorola has continued to produce numerous and popular phones, including the extremely successful Razr, a model which ushered in the “thin” fad.

Unfortunately, Motorola has hit hard times during the past couple years with a combination of record losses, an exodus of top CEO’s and ultimately the company being put up for sale.

Motorola is based in Schaumburg, Illinois and was founded in 1928 as the Galvin Manufacturing Corporation.
