Motorola's Moto G5s provides a basic smartphone experience with just a few Motorola-specific tweaks.

The good

  • Metal body
  • Budget priced
  • Fast fingerprint sensor

The bad

  • Ordinary processor
  • Single lens camera

The Motorola Moto G5s continues Motorola's G-series mission of delivering quality smartphones at affordable prices.

Motorola's G-series phones are all about essential smartphone features and just a small quantity of style. They're phones for the masses, in other words. The Motorola Moto G5s was the smaller sibling of the generally excellent Motorola Moto G5s Plus, and while it's a lesser phone, it's also one you should be able to score at an even better price, especially with the Motorola Moto G6 already available.


  • Metal body design


  • Single lens camera only


  • Snapdragon 430 provides limited power

Battery life

  • 3,000mAh battery


  • Another good Motorola handset, although its newer efforts do eclipse it
