I bought this phone from O2 in December time for £89.99, sadly I don't think it will ever go down to that price again.
Good price nonetheless

Yeah, it was for the 2gb. You're right, still a good price however
I love Motorola phones,well made and good software. The only downside is that there's only 16gb of memory with this model. Still heat!!

On this particular phone, another downside is the battery.
I have had the G4 for over a year. Really happy with it. 16gb needs some juggling now and again, but no need for me to spend hundreds on anything else.
This one is certainly a better spec and for about the same price I paid. Good deal.
Which version of Android is on this and what are the planned updates looking like?

Nice that it has a memory card slot to expand it. I have this phone but i paid £170 😣
G4+ is better than g5 imho.

G4+ is better than g5 imho.


Yes I think it is a better phone in many respects. I think (but not 100%) that the G5S dual sim offers 3G on both SIMs at the same time (2G/3G voice and 2G/3G/4G on the second SIM) making it useful for Three sim users. The standard G5 was only 2G and 3G/4G
Man, anyone else find this phone a bit "ugly". Only thing that stops me buying.

G6 coming out soon
Inbuilt storage is almost irrelevant now that you can use adoptable storage in Android.

Got this for my mum last March and its on 7.0 only just received it's first update last month. Don't think it will get any more. It might be pretty much stock android but Moto are awful with support and updates.

Yes, don't go with Motorola if you want quick software updates, they've really gone downhill in supporting their older devices since their acquisition by Lenovo.

Not all apps work with adoptable storage and dont update properly.

so if you use alot of apps? a 32GB internal memory is preferable

My g5 2gb is on android 7.0

I presume same here?
Updates on Motorola phones are hit and miss, my partners G5 only just got the November secrity update (and its still on 7.0) prior to that it was about 12 months behind with security patches.

Afraid not, most apps and their data will only use the phone memory.
Always go for onboard memory rather than a card.
I had g4 play. Was a great phone. Battery was awesome. Only downside was the gps was rubbish and it lagged.

Now I have the p10 lite and it ticks all the boxes for a budget phone.
The Moto G5S+ is the way to go and well worth the £80 more. It also has the Oreo software version without all the annoying and lag-causing bloatware that you get with that fragile overpriced/overheating Samsung junk. Why buy a "Crapple" for £900+ when you can get something as good, if not better for 1/4 of the price?
With the G5S for £150-160 from Amazon.de with 32gb this doesn't seem a great deal with a plug adaptor only costing a couple of quid.

I agree with that last comment. Just checked the apps installed on my Moto G and out of the current total of 99 apps, 55 of them cannot be installed/moved to my adoptable storage memory card.

Just a (insert colour here) rectangle like all phones now... apart from logos (and price) its hard to tell any apart
I've got this and it's not great, however there are very few phones with dual SIM and SD and removable battery. 3GB was just a bonus.

Unless you need the above spec, I'd go elsewhere. Mine just got it's first security update, although it is supposed to be getting Oreo, and that's not good enough.

The screen also scratched in my pocket when all it had was my old S4 in there with it (screen protectors hadn't yet arrived!).
Bought the 3GB version direct from Motorola recently. Nice kit, but the headphone socket didn't work. Now have to return to China. Bought a G5S Plus instead from Amazon. Expensive but a G5S+ is a seriously nice phone!
Is this better than the Huawei P Smart?

Both of my kids 3gb G5s have headphone jack issues...I upgraded them to wireless headphones for my own sanity! Neither have had storage issues using the SD card formatted as internal memory.
My G5S Plus is outstanding for the money too.

Yeah that's what I was thinking, bought the G5S on Wednesday from Amazon.de in grey (so could chose colour) and paid for fast delivery and got it yesterday, £159 roughly including delivery.
Nice phone, but no NFC and absolutely terrible software support are two negatives for me.
Seems expensive. You can get the 2GB G5 from GiffGaff (sim free) for only £129,
with £25 Quidco also, so potentially only £104, as opposed to £148 for
the 3GB version.

Did they say it had to be sent back to China? My sister got hers sorted at a Moto approved repair centre 25 miles away.
Have the G4 version which is a delight to use. The G5 has a slightly smaller screen (5.0" as opposed to 5.5") but it looks like a really nice phone.
Depends on which apps you use, but typical memory usage seems to be around 1.2GB RAM.
Not sure why you would need 3GB?

Absolutely. NFC is a must for me. Use Google pay pretty much everywhere when it in shops.

P10 lite sounds good, but is £180.
Huawei P Smart and PayPal £50 cashback offer over this.
