Moto G5 First Impression
After deciding I wanted to replace my work and personal phone with a single dual sim device, my finger hovered over the Amazon buy button, wondering if the Moto G5 Dual Sim would too cheap to suit my needs.
After 24 hours with the phone, I’m amazed that such a device is available for 200 euros.
When comparing against the iPhone, Samsung S7 or the HTC 10, the screen is smaller and has less resolution, but is still able to deliver a very usable experience. Picking up the device, some of the monetary saving can be found in the feel of the phone, as the body is made of a mixture of metal and plastic, which gives a different feel to the premium handsets.
After this initial difference in comparison to a premium phone, it's all good. It’s quick, plenty of memory and most importantly for a professional, the mobile phone network signal strength is amazing. I have never had a 4G connection on any network at home, I do with the Moto G5.
The fingerprint reader is as good as any premium handset, the 5-inch screen is a good size and helps to provide acceptable battery life and its pretty light. 10Gb of the 16Gb of onboard storage is available for apps, adding a 64gb SD card provides plenty of storage for downloads, videos and music.
I’ll give a full review soon, at the moment, it seems very positive.
