​it's a phone not a woman



Did you just assume that phone's gender? That's sexist

Seriously though, phones can be ugly.. just like cars... dogs .. children.. anything really

Use UKWELCOME10 to get a tenner off
Only paid £299 for the MotoZ a couple of weeks back which is there top handset where this is there budget model and that came with a JBL Mod and a free cover. This is very poor value, you can do way better for your money.

With that discount it really puts the Carphone Warehouse deal with its paltry 2GB of RAM, well and truly in the shade!
Anyone else notice there's no mention of dual sim under full specifications?
Will the 4gb ram and 64gb storage be sold in the UK?

Yes, the 2GB RAM is hidden too right at the bottom of the specs! That's a really dirty sneaky thing for CPW to do. If that's the reason why its "exclusive" then you can stick it where the sun doesn't shine!

That's the standard, not the Plus model. Not the same phone.

Whoops you're right!
Can't understand why the Amazon Germany deal got a lot more heat when it was £20 more expensive. Can someone explain the logic of this please?

and unless you buy a sim free phone now from cpw the phone is not only locked to the network but also the sim that they supply

​All the more reason then to buy direct from Motorola and avoid CPW like the plague.
don't get why this is going cold. cheapest price around...infact only place around you can get the plus version.
People voting cold purely because its motorola and not as snassy as an iphone/samsung, yet they forget its a fraction of the price
ihatebingo

cold for me the samsung is on the prowl



how does it make the deal cold though? just because you prefer the Samsung which is going to be 3x as expensive
Great phone but not at £239......bought mine from Amazon at £179
Motorola are murder for customer service. Lenovo took a good company, and destroyed it. Broke charger brick, nope not interested. Ghost touches when charging, nope not interested. Phone freezing all the time, nope not interested. Those who are actually lucky to get there phone fixed wait weeks and weeks.

​You bought the standard model. This is the Plus with a larger screen, better camera, more powerful processor and NFC amongst other features.

This is the Plus version which Amazon as yet do not sell.
Heat added as this is the cheapest price for this handset in the UK right now, which is the whole point of this place. People voting cold because they personally don't like something are completely missing that simple concept.

​I wholeheartedly agree with your sentiment. The whole point of HUKD is to judge the price of the deal on its own merits and compared to the whole market. To vote cold purely because the phone is ugly or because its not a Samsung Galaxy S8 is missing the point. This is currently the UKs best price for the best available configuration of the Moto G5 family. End of.

It will be people like pilOTT, voting cold thinking the phone on amazon is the same phone at a much cheaper price.........i do have a word for those type of people
This is an interesting review on camera quality and specs. Hopefully useful for people who are ACTUALLY interested in buying the phone like me. Compares the camera to S7, another phone I'm weighing up currently. recombu.com/mob…iew

​because my post was mostly cold for a long time, then interest peaked, now I am redirecting to this, however customer service via Motorola is horrendous, but it is way cheaper, if you can get it...

Absolutely spot on.
is this worth the extra £60 compared to the original G5?

I would avoid Motorola like the plague any day of the week. Horrific customer 'service'.

They actually returned mine quite quickly when it went in for repair. They just failed to repair it. Twice. Then they offered me a reconditioned phone. Awful company.
​​On this link ​hotukdeals.com/dea…926 ​skygrowler reports that CPW advises that the 2GB listing is an error and that their version is actually 4GB. Has anyone ordered the CPW version and can confirm this with evidence? It would be great if this was true because after slating CPW I will take this all back and this thread should change from ice cold to scorching hot if this is the case.
Currently 'out of stock'. Gutted as I was just about to buy 2 of them. Have been waiting for this as didn't want to go down the CPW route with only a 2GB version. Thanks OP... will wait for it to be back in stock!

Apparently it is not true. The CPW facebook team and an email from them confirm that it is 2GB
As I understand it only the 64gb version has 4gb of RAM. However I haven't been able to find the 64gb version for sale in the UK.
Out of Stock :-(
This is a cross post from another thread on the G5 Plus but thought it might help: The CPW one advertised at 2Gb arrived as a 3Gb XT1684, OEM id: M2670. No mention of the RAM capacity on the packaging, but clearly a 3Gb model. Other details incorrect on CPW website as noted previously - No OIS, just EIS (video) also it states headphones included, which they are not for this model. Hope that clarifies things a bit. Not sure if you would be guaranteed a 3Gb one though, as CPW could in theory have both the 2 and 3 gig variants.

Full spec link

As an aside though, the recent customer service received from CPW has been terrible!
I've just managed to order a 4gb RAM 32gb Moto G5 from flip kart in India. For about 210. I do have to wait for my work colleague to bring it back as they don't ship here. Great thing is this is Dual SIM.
