With the ever-increasing competition in the smartphone sector, users are in a continuous quest for a premium smartphone at a not-so-premium expense. This is where Motorola's G Series steps in. The Moto G5 smartphone comes with all the latest technological features like 4G volte, fingerprint reader, water repellent nano coating with an exceptional camera and aluminum metal body, all at an affordable price.

In the market of midrange smartphones, Motorola has recently been reviewed much higher than its competitors like Xiaomi, OnePlus, and Oppo. The Moto G5 has impressed users with not only its reliability but also by its luxurious feel. Here are two reasons that make Moto G5 the winner in the midrange market.

Impressive software features

The Moto G5 boasts of an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor clocked at 1.4GHz, along with Adreno 505 graphics. Such a kind of processor makes the handset comparable to Samsung's J7, which is available at a much steeper price than Moto G5. Running on Android Nougat 7.0 operating system, Moto G5 is also the only one in the midrange market to offer stock UI and access to the split-screen mode.

According to NDTV Gadget360, the Moto G5 has clean, innovative software and gesture shortcuts, such as the "karate chop" to turn on the torch, arm twist for starting the camera, and flip for Do Not Disturb. Also, it is equipped with 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage space. Another plus point of the Moto G5 is the dedicated slot for microSD cards having storage up to 128 GB.

Luxurious hardware

Sporting a metallic look, the Moto G5 has even been compared to Samsung and Apple by certain consumers. The dimensions 144.30x73.00x9.50 offer a sleek look to the handset and are also quite light, weighing 145 grams. Coming with a modest 2800 mAh removable battery, the Moto G5 has a 5-inch touchscreen display with an impressive 1080p resolution.

Apart from the dual-sim feature and 4G connectivity, the quality of Moto G5's 13 megapixels primary camera is reportedly comparable to that of the more expensive Samsung S7. Moto G5 has rightfully been called "a new value champion" by The Verge.

All in all Moto G5 offers a great experience at a low price. Priced within $230 and loaded with features, it is a tough smartphone to beat in the midrange price bracket. Meanwhile, for more updates on Moto G5 stay tuned with us!
