Expert Reviews

A step in the right direction

from Expert Reviews

Despite its flaws, the G5S deserves a lot of praise. Motorola has taken much of the negative criticism it received for the G5 and made its smartphone a true budget contender.

Another brilliantly well put together budget phone

from TechRadar

Motorola’s budget phones are always solid and reliable, but the Moto G5S adds a hint of premium glamour to the package with an all-metal body. It’s just a shame the improvements elsewhere don’t go quite as far as the Moto G5S Plus though.
