If it had gorilla glass and was water resistant, I'd snap it up, bit I'll stick with my Moto g 3rd Gen

Just a shame that Amazon don't sell direct the Moto G5 Plus at a better price, I like the fact with that model it has both sims running on 3g.This one can only run 2g and 3 g at the same time.
buying a 16 GB storage phone in 2017 is not wise at all, any make.

Rubbish, 16gb is plenty for lots of people and is expandable by micro SD anyway.
Good deal, although lack of compass is a deal breaker

yes, I learned that lesson, by buying one of these, struggling to get both Sims working, then realising my mistake. This is a cracking phone for the money, but if you need dual sim beware.
I sent my G5 back, and I'm still carrying 2 phones around until the G5 plus gets cheaper

Take some photos and video and 16GB soon runs out. Micro SD can help though apps don't work well (if at all) on SD.

I've got a 16gb Moto with bt cloud app so photos aren't on the actual phone. Works well for me. 16gb is pretty small, though some still get by on 8gb.

I got this in a prime day deal. I'm actually pleased with it. It does feel & look better than the g4. Also it has SD card and replaceable battary is very welcome these days.

You just need decent SD card and format as internal no issues with any app I use.

Any apps in particular you have problems with on SD card?

Rumours suggest Moto may release a patch to enable 3g on both Sims at the same time like the G4+ dual and G5+ but don't buy it based on that alone.
2800mah battery is a bit crap nowadays init ?

SD can be used just for media (I have a 64gb card for as much music as I can cram on) but you can also use as adoptive storage then all apps can be installed on it as it behaves just like the internal storage. Just make sure it is a fast and good quality card. Please make sure you are up to date before you post misleading comments.

Apologies, my remarks were valid for previous Android versions though I'll be more careful in future.

No, I was uneducated and shouldn't have been 'helping'. Having 128GB on my phone has removed my need to know.
No NFC so no Android Pay ... and no compass apparently.

I disagree; some sizes of commonly-used apps:

Facebook: 507MB
Google maps: 423MB
Chrome: 400MB
Google Sheets: 173MB
Amazon: 165MB
BBC News: 158MB
Outlook: 148MB
Facebook Messenger: 142MB
Uber: 119MB
Google Docs: 111MB
TripAdvisor: 106MB
LinkedIn: 105MB
Skype: 99MB
Spotify: 96MB
Instagram: 95MB

A 16GB device usually has about 11-12GB free for user apps and data, and apps can only be updated when at least 10% of the space is available (presumably to make it possible for flash wear levelling to work).

Moving apps to SD isn't a panacea either - SD is much slower than built-in eMMC flash.

Bought this phone on Amazon and it's brilliant. Installed the new type of SD card rated A1 that enable apps to run of it. Formatted 128gb A1 card to become part of internal storage as you can do since android marshmallow with no noticeable change in app performance. Check out these new cards, very fast indeed and designed for app performance.

I've found adoptable storage to be a bit rubbish, even with fast cards, performance becomes noticeably degraded.

Not all apps can be put on the SD card, its still up to the developer whether an app can run from the card. Apps can also be moved between storage devices in much the same way that they could in older versions of Android (pre-Marshmallow).

There are two big problems with using an SD card as adoptable storage.

1. The filesystem on the card becomes encrypted. So if you use the card to store photos, videos and music the media will only be available in that phone, and the data can only be read from that phone. The SD card can't be used for looking at files on a PC, nor can it be easily moved to a new phone. If the phone breaks, the data from the card is also lost. The card will need to be reformatted before it will work in a new phone.

2. SD cards a prone to failing, especially when used for app storage because of a much larger use of small random read/writes compared to if a card was only used for storing media. I've had 6 cards fail (3 Sandisk, 2 Kingston and 1 Integral) over the past 3 years.

My advice is to always go for the largest internal storage size that fits your budget, especially if you are a heavy app user. SD cards work best as portable storage.

Adoptive storage gets Android to treat the card as the main storage so it doesn't matter about the developer. That said 90% of people are not heavy app users - I have 9GB of Apps currently on a 32GB phone (I've chosen to stick with card for mecdia storage only) and this is mainly down to one anomalous app - I got Knights of The Old Republic free on Amazon Underground. I have several apps I would delete quite easily if I had less space. 16GB probably requires a little compromise for some people (I prefer to use shortcuts to sites rather than bulky battery draining apps where possible anyway), but basically everyone I know with a phone does quite happily with 16GB.

That isn't true. The developer must still allow or disallow an app from being put on the SD card. Adoptable storage isn't much different to the old system in Lollipop and prior versions, where you could move apps to the SD card manually. Adoptable storage just allows this to be done automatically, and places the apps on the storage device with the most available free space, as long as the developer of the apps has not restricted it.
