I agree good phone but 2gb ram is not enough. You need at least 3gb of ram to ensure smooth operation of the Android o/s and the ability to multitask and run power hungry apps.

Agreed, I'd definitely pay the little bit extra to get the 3gb version. Android just doesn't run well enough without it.

Especially if you use it as a desktop like multi task machine. 16GB is even better there!

I think you're confusing the ram (which helps with the speed of the phone) with the size of the storage (which dictates how many files you can store on the phone). I'm not aware of any phones which have 16gb of ram, however most will have at least 16gb of storage.

In terms of storage it's just whatever you personally need (depends on how many photos, music albums etc you want to store on your phone). However, with the ram I'd definitely recommend at least 3gb to run android effectively

Nope, I was being sarcastic. When a phone eventuallly gets to have 16GB ram then some will think that is whats needed.
This has an SD slot so Flash memory can be expanded, I imagine to 200GB+

With the new o/s releasing soon (oreo) you will feel that the phone will demand more ram to run smoothly. Also the more ram the better you are future proofing the ability of your phone to run smoothly with later updates. Of course this is just my opinion. Each their own.

If you're spending £129.95 on a phone then 2GB is perfectly adequate and to expect or demand 3GB at this price is a bit ridiculous... as someone else said, even 1GB is fine, sure, things will get evicted from operating memory if multi-tasking but it's not as bad as some would have you believe.

The bigger problem with the Motorola G5 is the potential ghost touch issue, something to do with capacitive screen grounding I think, but not fixable with an update.

Bought this phone today from Argos eBay with the Quidco 10% cashback. Hope it's decent but for £117 I'll not complain.

I'd neither expect or demand 3gb of ram for this price. But when the option is there for an extra £10-£20 it would be well worth paying the tiny bit extra.

Ive bought this from John Lewis. Really happy with it.

Ghost touch issues were more of an issue for the G4 series. The G5 isn't nearly as affected.

The price must have changed from when i posted.the link!! It was £150 earlier for the 3gb model im sure....or maybe i need a trip to specsavers...

I have the 2Gb version and am very happy with it.
I use 2 email clients, maps , googgle search , few lame games and Youtube.

I am very happy with this.
best feature is the mini trackpad features on the home button/finger print sensor
left swipe for BACk and right swipe for apps and long press for lock

I would have this feature on every phone fro now onward, if possible.
But everything going to under screen sensors or moved to back of phone......shame

Yes agreed. But it has been documented. It’s one of those things that haunts the series now (if you’ll excuse the pun). It’s a bit like if you ask people what they think of LG G-series phones and they say ‘bootloop’

This or the p10 lite offer @ cpw?

If anyone's interested, Amazon Warehouse have the G5 dual-SIM with 3GB RAM under the 20% off offer for just under £100 (£96-ish), the 2GB single-SIM is even less.

You're welcome - thanks for letting me know, gives me a bit of a warm feeling knowing it has helped someone! A branded dual-SIM 3GB RAM phone for that money is a bit of a bargain, I wanted to make sure it was out there!

The G5 has had reports of it too, but maybe to a lesser extent. It might just be hypochondria from the G4 series...
