Moto rolls in with im­pres­sive pack­age for at­trac­tive price

Belfast Telegraph - Business Telegraph - - Business Telegraph -

WHEN it comes to of­fer­ing high-per­for­mance bud­get smart­phones, Mo­torola is ar­guably the king.

Its new­est G5 (like all pre­vi­ous ‘G’ mod­els) gives you a heck of a lot for your money, in­clud­ing a fin­ger­print scan­ner, a de­cent 13-megapixel rear cam­era and a pretty nice 5in 1080p screen.

It also has a bit of metal thrown into the usual plas­tic that you would ex­pect to see on a sub-€200 (£176) smart­phone.

The 5in HD screen is bright, with 441 pix­els per inch and, un­like posher phones, there’s still a head­phone port. So, what’s the catch?

Where the G5 cuts cor­ners is on the same­ness of the de­sign and just 16GB of stor­age.

How­ever, there’s Mi­crosd ex­pan­sion built in.

Bat­tery life is fine and it uses the older Mi­crousb rather than USB- C to recharge.
