BARCELONA, Spain—Since 2013, the Moto G in its various guises has been an easy phone to recommend to anyone who wants a decent phone for about £200. Last year, though, a "Plus" version of the Moto G4 emerged. You had a budget version and a slightly-less-budget phone to choose from. The Moto G5 Plus makes that decision all the more difficult, with greater differences between it and the normal Moto G5. The good news is, you still get your money's worth with the Moto G5 Plus.
Let’s start with the design. The Lenovo Moto G5 Plus takes a few cues from budget rivals like the Huawei Ascend G8 in its use of metal. From 2013 to 2016 Motorola avoided overt flashiness in its Moto G designs, using mostly plastic shells. The Moto G5 Plus has a plate of aluminium on its back, which ostensibly injects an extra shot of high-end-like flavour.
