The Moto G5 is a compact, budget smartphone, which has plenty to offer for the price point.

Moto G5 sports a 5-inch FHD display, whereas G5 Plus features a 5.2-inch FHD panel. Additionally, if you want to, you can also disable Android's on-screen buttons and use swiping gestures on the larger-than-usual fingerprint sensor instead. The company has experienced a lot of ups and downs in the recent past, with its Moto G5 and G5 Plus being successful at accumulating much of what was expected, the company also expects this one to do well in the market.
