Motorola Moto G5S Mobile Phone has 16 user pros and cons opinions and 68.8% total satisfaction rating.
The Moto G5S offers a manual shooting mode for its rear camera, allowing users to adjust the camera settings to their liking insted of relying on the result from the auto mode.
High resolution sensors have their disadvantages as well, but having a 16MP means that at least when shooting in ideal lighting conditions, you will be able to get very detailed image which is great for making larger prints and also great for editing purposes (more room for cropping).
The G5S rear camera comes with a sensor that supports phase-detection AF, which ensured relatively fast and accurate AF performance compared to camera sensors that only support contrast-detection AF.
Great to see that the G5S comes with a front LED flash, which allows you to capture great selfies whether you are shooting in daylight or at night. Usually front camera sensors are small, so that extra light can help when shooting with the front camera in low-light.
The Moto G5s is limited to up to 1080p Full HD video recording resolution, can't shoot 4K. I'm sure that next year most mid-range mobile phones will be able to shoot at 4K due to the new processors that do support this resolution.
moto G5s comes with a microSD card slot, which you can use to expand over the built-in storage in case you need more space to store your phone's data like pictures, videos, documents, games, apps ,etc.
The moto G5S comes with 3GB of RAM, which is plenty for those who run several applications at the same time and multi-tasking. So no complains here regarding the memory. I am interested to know what type of memory is this, couldn't find any information on motorola.com.
There is nothing to be excited about the G5S processor, boasting Snapdragon 430. A bottom mid-range processor which can give good performance overall, but laggy performance with high-demanding 3D applications. Also it's a low-spec choice for a 1080p display.
It's great to know that your phone have a scratch resistant protection built-in. The G5S uses Gorilla Glass 3, which although not the latest, provides much better protection from scratched and breakage compared to standard not hardened glass.
The Moto G5s like the G5S plus, come with a water-repellent coating that help protect the phone from water splashes. It's not waterproof nor we have an IP rating, buy it's nice to know that it will be protected against accidental spills (happens to me a lot to be honest).
The moto G5S is crafted with an all-metal unibody design made of a single pierce of high-grade aluminum which gives the phone its durability and also its premium look and feel.
The G5s is only being offered in two color variations, gold and gray. It would nice to see more vivid colors and a wider selection of colors to choose from. A small complaint, but I 'm sure that many users would love to have the option to choose among a larger color selection.
The G5S is quite thick, measuring 8.2mm. This makes it less attractive compared to other mid-rangers that boast 7mm or less thickness. Not big deal, but -1 point in the design category.
The motorola moto g5s comes with the latest version of Android out of the box (as of the time of writing). No issues here, users can enjoy the best and latest features without needing to wait for a future OTA update.
The moto G5s is powered up by Motorola's TurboPower charging technology which can give you 5 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes of charging. Great for users on the go who don't have a lot of time to charge their phone in between activities.
The G5S dubeed as "special addition". I was really excited to see new moto phones, but unfortionately the differences between the G5S and the G5 aren't that big and I don't know if as a G5 owner, I would have upgrade to this model.
