Whether you’re a weekend photographer or a seasoned pro, Moto G5 includes camera software that makes taking great pictures easier than ever thank to…
Quick Capture: Never miss a moment. Launch the main camera quickly with just 2 twists of your wrist. Then double twist again to switch to the front camera.
Best Shot: Take a picture, and the camera automatically captures multiple shots, intelligently recognising issues like blurred images or closed eyes. Then it recommends the best shot to keep, so you get the best results.
Professional Mode: Get ultimate control by using the same manual settings you’d expect to find on a professional SLR camera. Adjust the white balance, shutter speed, ISO, exposure compensation, and focus.
Beautification Mode: Improve your selfies by smoothing the skin to reduce blemishes or wrinkles. Choose this camera setting manually, or have all of your selfies beautified automatically, so you always look your best.

179 is for 3gb version i think
I did a price match yesterday as I bought it 3weeks ago at 169 with Tesco at 149 and they agreed today - may be why they dropped the price?
I wish I'd gone for this instead of the lenovo P2. I don't get any notifications with it and it drives me insane! I might sell it and buy this! (_;)

Covered in the long P2 thread but you need to disable power management on apps you want notifications on in power saving settings and also open app switcher and click the padlock to stop the phone memory management closing down the same apps. sorted that issue for me....

Not sure if "all new" is an accurate description anymore as the "all new" G5S is due to be announced shortly.

​heard that aswell
Only £10 more than G4. And it makes sense if you want a smaller footprint phone.But in many respects this is a significant step backwards compared to Moto G4.
slower and smaller than a G4+. And probably still has no camera stabilisation.

My wife has had this for 3 weeks and no overheating, also although on paper this has a slower processor than the G4 in daily use it's as smooth as silk. Lovely screen. Don't play a lot of games though so can't comment on that.

I bought this for my other half a few months back and it was fine, but now overheats like crazy when she's gaming on it and weirdly and randomly overheats even when it's in sleep mode?! (though that could be due to the number of apps it has running constantly!) Still, she loves it and the battery life is fantastic
Good price so heat added... But I have had both and the Lenono P2 is a far superior phone if you can live with the extra size and weight.
It's £10 cheaper on Amazon for the grey one: amazon.co.uk/Mot…BL/

I've read the G5 dual SIM is only 2G on the second sim (so no good for Three network or Sky / ID network - but the G5Plus is (apparently) 3G/4G on sim1 and 3G on sim2.
