Lenovo, the parent company of Motorola, recently announced the launch of its latest devices, the Moto G5S and G5S Plus for the Indian market. These two devices are the 2017 upgrades to the G5 and G5 Plus. Both these devices are still considered part of the 5th generation and Motorola maintains that they are special versions of the G5 and G5 Plus. The company wants to ensure that they maintain their strong grip over the budget market in India with the highly successful G series.
With G5S at Rs 12,999 and G5S Plus at Rs 15,999, the company has priced the devices competitively. This puts both the devices in direct competition with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Mi A1 and Lenovo Z2 Plus.
When we reviewed the G5 Plus, we concluded that the device was great, but that build quality and camera needed polish. Motorola sent us the Moto G5S Plus, the more expensive of the two devices. The smartphone looks stellar and packs a dual camera setup, which is a first for the company at this price point. I used it as my daily driver for 10 days. I pushed the smartphone to its limits in terms of usage. After extensive tests and usage, the Moto G5S Plus leaves me impressed. Here’s why!
