It’s no doubt that the Indian smartphone market is among the crowded markets globally. Each week tens, if not hundreds, phones are released in the country. But there are some devices that manage to stand ahead of the crowd. The recently-released Moto G5 is one such phone. It manages to impress not just with what it brings to the table, but also with its affordable price of Rs 11,999. Wondering why we think so? Well, read on to find out not one, not two, but five things that make the G5 a worthy buy.
Metal design and compact build
It’s a well-established fact that the phones made out of metal look premium, and at the same time, they are quite solid too. But very few smartphones offer metallic construction, especially in the budget segment. That’s not the case with the Moto G5 though, it offers a metallic body, and add to that it’s curved rear and rounded corners, and it offers really good ergonomics. You don’t even have to worry about water splashes as it gets a nano-coating.
The Moto G5 is also a welcome sight in the age of phablets, which aren’t easy to operate single-handedly, as it features a compact 5-inch display. Its full HD resolution ensures sharp text.
Powering the Moto G5 is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor. The chipset has eight cores running at 1.4GHz, making it quite powerful. It’s complimented by 3GB of RAM, which ensures smooth operation. Be it normal tasks, or gaming, the Moto G5 won’t disappoint you with its performance.
In the camera section, the Moto G5 comes with a 13MP camera at the back. The f/2.0 sensor promises impressive images in all the situations, which are full of details and vibrant colours. The camera also gets help from the dual-tone LED flash for shooting in low-light situations.
If you’re a selfie enthusiast, the G5 caters to your need as well. It features a 5MP secondary camera. This ensures good selfies, and there’s selfie flash too, in case you need to capture them in poor lighting.
Android in its purest avatar
Well, this has been the promise of the brand Motorola ever since the launch of Moto X in 2013. The company offers the latest version of Android unlike the competition, but more importantly, the interface is completely stock. The Moto G5 also carries the same philosophy as it ships with Android 7.0 Nougat. The best part is that the device will also get an update to Android O, as and when it’s released, instead of being stuck with one version of Google’s OS, which is the case with most of the phones in the market.
Lasts an entire day
What good can a phone do if it can’t even last with you for the complete working day? With the Moto G5, you don’t need to worry about that or carry around a bulky power bank with you for the same. The 2,800mAh battery offers a day-long backup to the Moto G5. There’s also support for the rapid charge, which means that the phone can also charge quickly with the charger available in its retail box.
So those were some of the reasons that make the Moto G5 a compelling buy. Do let us know in the comments which one is your favourite.
