BARCELONA, Spain—Somewhat unusually for a newer phone, the Moto G5 isn't a flat-out better phone than the Moto G4 in every respect. It's just... different.
The biggest upgrade is in the Moto G5’s build. There’s a lot more metal than before. The best way to tell metal parts from plastic ones is to chill a phone to see which parts get colder than others. But because I no longer wheel a freezer behind me when I attend conferences like MWC, I have to make do with a simpler fingernail scratch test. It would appear that the rear of the Moto G5 is metal but the sides are plastic with a convincing metal finish.
