Design and Display

The Moto G5S Plus flaunts a more robust build, compared to the G5 Plus released few months ago. It no longer uses a plastic chassis with metallic coating, but parades a full metal unibody design. This makes it feel more premium and durable. Like in the G5S,  the Moto G5S Plus enjoys splash protection.

Its display is also bigger, bumped from 5.2 inches to 5.5 inches. That’s more screen estate for content viewing. Boasting Full HD resolution, this touchscreen is comparable to that seen on the Moto Z2 Play.


The Moto G5S Plus doesn’t offer the upgraded 16MP primary camera of the new G5s. Instead, you get a pair of 13MP sensors on the back for higher quality images. This is the only the second Motorola device to offer dual rear shooters, after Moto Z2 Force. The device features dual LED flash and promises stunning 4K videos.

You also get an improved selfie shooter. The resolution is now improved to 8 megapixels, from 5 megapixels. The camera also offers flash for good shots in poorly-lit settings.

Onboard storage is the same at 32 GB and this is also expandable. The Moto G5S Plus runs on Android 7.1 Nougat software that seems to promise experience similar to what the Google Pixel offers.

Other Specs and Features

Likewise, the Moto G5S Plus packs a higher capacity 3,000mAh Li-Ion battery, which receives support from TurboPower fast charge technology. Moto G5S Plus features a fingerprint sensor at the base of the display, inserted into the Home button. It is available in both single and dual SIM variants. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.1 and dual band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n with Wi-Fi Direct and hotspot.
