The Moto G5 Plus continues to be our favorite budget-friendly Android smartphone. It demonstrates that "good-but-not-great hardware can become [a] strong value at the right price," as Dunn said in his review.
With the G5 Plus, you get a 5.2-inch 1080p screen, a fingerprint scanner, great battery life, a 12-megapixel camera that beats those of other phones in its price range, a nearly pristine version of Android, and a sleek design. All for a mere $200.
Still, the G5 Plus doesn't have as many features as premium phones. For example, it doesn't have an NFC antenna, so it can't be used for mobile payments. And to charge the device, you'll have to use a microUSB cable; it doesn't support USB-C, the newer, faster phone-charging standard.

The Moto G5S Plus is an upgrade from the G5 Plus.
The newer phone features an all-metal design, whereas the older one has a half-metal, half-plastic case. The G5S Plus also has a bigger screen — a 5.5-inch display versus 5.2-inch one.
But one of the biggest improvements is in its camera. The G5S Plus has a 13-megapixel dual-lens camera system.
Wait for it: Lenovo's Motorola unit is expected to announce the Moto G6, the replacement for the G5 Plus, soon. Check out the rumors at the end of this list.
