The Moto G5 is a rock-bottom bargain for your everyday essentials
There's a lot I like about the Moto G5, for starters, it's got a lovely metal design.
It feels a whole lot more luxurious than the plastic casing found on previous Moto phones.
It feels great to hold and the five inch display means you don't need to do a whole lot of thumb stretching to use it one handed.
I would like that display to be a lot brighter, but its full HD resolution at least makes your icons look nice and crisp.
There's a fingerprint scanner on the bottom, which works well, and it doubles up as a home button, so navigating around the Android Nougat interface is pretty simple.
The octa-core processor helps it feel nippy to use.
And while it doesn't have the raw power of elite phones like Samsung's Galaxy S8, it's got more than enough grunt to tackle your daily tweeting and Instagram sessions.
The 13 mega pixel camera on the back is decent too.
Outdoor shorts are rich and vibrant.
While indoor in lower light remain bright and sharp.
As long as you keep a steady hand.
And of course you [UNKNOWN] lovers are well catered for with the 5 mega pixel camera stuck on the front.
Best of all though is the price.
The Moto G5 costs only 170 pounds here in the UK.
Making it an Extremely affordable, better kit, and great value all around.
If you're looking for a great all-around Android phone that won't break your bank, the Moto G5 is definitely worth checking out.
