Before we delve into Moto G5S Plus, there’s actually a standard version called Moto G5S – without the Plus.

Before it gets confusing for everybody, here’s the Moto G5S :

  • 5.2-inch Full HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1080 x 1920 pixels or ~424 ppi pixel density
  • Splash-resistant body
  • All-metal unibody design
  • Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • Qualcomm MSM8937 Snapdragon 430 chipset, Octa-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Adreno 505 and 3GB RAM
  • 16MP primary camera with f/2.0 aperture, phase detection autofocus and LED flash
  • 5MP secondary camera with f/2.0 aperture and LED flash
  • 32GB internal storage + microSD expansion slot up to maximum 256GB
  • Android Nougat 7.1 OS
  • Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery with Fast battery charging
  • Dual-sim and 4G LTE
  • Expected August 2017 release date
  • 249 Euro or ~$295 USD estimated price tag

In summary, Moto G5S does improve on a lot of things on the previous Moto G5 such as having a larger 5.2-inch screen, splash-resistant body, an additional 1GB RAM, better camera setup and massive battery. But all this comes at a price, an almost 65% premium that you will be paying extra from its predecessor for all that.

  • Splash-resistant body
  • All-metal unibody design

  • Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625 chipset, Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 processor, Adreno 506 graphics and 3GB/4GB RAM

It seems that by paying $60 USD extra for the Moto G5S Plus, you will get loads of upgrades that make it worthwhile.

With Moto G5S Plus, the first thing that you will notice on its larger 5.5-inch Full HD IPS screen. This means that you get to enjoy the extra screen space for you to view more things on it. The all-metal unibody design has been painstakingly polished for a flawless finish that also makes it stronger than ever. Gorilla Glass 3 as your means of protection and the fingerprint sensor makes it complete on this front.

Moving on to the performance side of things, it is a huge improvement especially now that it will be sporting the mid-range Snapdragon 625 chipset, a fast octa-core processor, good graphics and an option of either 3GB or 4GB RAM. This is the sweet spot where it can easily run most apps and games with ease.

Another significant upgrade is on the camera – both primary and secondary camera. Blessed with a dual 13MP primary camera, it is great to know that the G-series is finally embarking on this path when others are already miles ahead. You get to enjoy your time spent on taking great-looking photos with it. The 8MP selfie camera also comes with LED flash, so you know that your selfies will look bright even when everything else is in the dark.

Storage-wise, 32GB is not enough for you to store all your favourite high-res photos taken with the camera smartphone. Thankfully there’s an expansion slot on the Moto G5S Plus that can easily take it up to an additional 256GB.

Another great aspect is there on the battery that will be powering up the Moto G5S Plus, with its excellent fast battery charging feature. It can provide up to 6 hours of power with just 15 minutes of charging.

Finally, the latest and greatest Android Nougat 7.1 operating system will be available upon its release.
