    Fuck Motorola I got tired of constantly being harassed about the never ending updates. I reset my moto 4 , opted out of the updates,went through the system and turned off every notification, called them asked them to stop, nothing worked. I am on my way to work and received six notifications in one hour there are psychotic stalker's you don't want to deal with don't buy from them. They have no respect or appreciation for customers

    What do you think about the Moto G5 plus vs Nexus 6?

  • Happy Puppy Pink Cupcake Kisses

    As long as you use a case, the camera bump isn't an issue. And, I don't know why they didn't stick to the amazing double front-facing speaker set-up from the Moto X Pure!

    Its a good thing that the American Smartphone Market allow very very few Chineese companies to sell their products. Because these companies offer Big features for less price but with very Poor build quality and after sales service. It is very annoying. Unfortunately these companies are booming in the market of my country

    I got the g5 plus, and coming from the S7, the camera actually tends to be better on the g5 plus. Mkbhd shows no signs of actually using the camera and disses it because its lack of OIS, and most likely confirmation bias since the phone is so inexpensive. The camera actually hesitates to push the iso up, and my Galaxy S7 actually pushed iso more than the g5 plus. The g5 plus would ask me to hold still but only bump the iso to 640 at dusk. If anyone has any evidence he actually tested the camera for more than a few seconds, please let me know.

  • osricen
    osricen 10 days ago

    I had to choose between this one and the G4+ and went for the G4+ Maybe I'm wrong but it has a way better system design and camera quality. In what I'm not wrong at all is: it feels and looks definitely better.

    So I got this phone TODAY and when I plug my headphones it doesn't work. I already plugged 3 headphones. On Wednesday I'm going back and see if I can change it. But the point is that mines doesn't work that means it's sensitive. Cause that normally doesn't happen

    Just got the 64 gig version off of ebay for $249 free shipping. No way was i paying that for the one with Amazon apps. I got no problems with a camera bump. Don't care about NFC nor USB C right now. Wonder how the call quality was, or did I miss it in the video? Can't wait till I get mine. Also, don't now why people really care about looks for a darn phone. I'm going to be putting a case on it anyways. Looks on a phone are the least of my worries.

    I don't know about g5+, but g5 is really a worst phone. It hangs a lot,heats a lot and it keeps getting worse. The only good thing about this phone is it's fingerprint pad.

    My S8+ got a random crack at the very bottom of the glass above the charging port...hasnt been dropped, hit, squished, etc so it really pissed me off since I've had it for 3 weeks. Samsung will fix it but wont give me a loaner phone. For $200 with Amazon's ads on the lock screen this seems like the perfect "back up phone" for when these things happen...absolutely not going to be a main phone or pull me away from flagships, but just in case either myself or my wife happens to break our phones or need to fix them we can fall back on a cheap phone that's perfectly fine for a week or two while the flagship is getting replaced.

    I have the G5+ but I'm not impressed tbh. Bought it only because of: stock Android Nougat!, dedicated dual-SIM with microSD slot, an okay 3k mah battery and good build quality.

    Hi Marques, on the Moto G5 Plus, do you feel a numbing electricity leaking sensation when your fingers or ear lobe touches the back of the phone while charging? I'm getting that from two Moto G5 Plus units sent to me already and on to the 3rd exchange unit... This electricity leak while charging is unsettling.

    What if the entire surface of that large chin was the finger print scanner? This could allow for more custom gestures like what we see in the nova launcher gestures and even draw a shape/letter to open specific apps. How ergonomic would this be? Would it be a reach for the thumb to do more gestures near the bottom? Would this tech be more achievable than putting the scanner beneath the display? I like what Moto is doing here and I am seeing some potential for them to expand it.

    Just to make it clear, the US version of this phone doesn't have NFC, but does have a compass. I believe other areas of the world has NFC, but no compass. Not sure why this is the case.

    I got the most defective Moto G4 Plus ever, so I might be forced to get a new phone. I got it in for repairs once under my warranty, afterwards the problems came back after about a month. Now it's in repairs again and I'm stuck with some LG loaner phone running Android 4.1. I'm doubtful that these repairs will fix the phone, I'm actually hoping that the problems will come back after the repairs so we can just get Rogers to replace the phone straight up instead of attempting to repair it

    • Jacob Frank

      And on top of that my Moto G4 Plus is on a 2-year contract so if I want to get another phone I have to either get an unlocked one, which get expensive quickly, or I have to pay $250 to pay off my Moto G4 Plus. And on top of that Rogers doesn't carry the Moto G5 Plus!! So I'd be stuck paying around $300-$400 for an unlocked version!
