Motorola moto g 5G plus: Your Bang-For-The-Buck 5G Smartphone

Plenty of 5G smartphones have rolled out last year and we can expect more in 2021. But if you’re looking for the most bang-for-the-buck smartphone available in the market with ultra-fast 5G, there’s one that stands out, the Motorola moto g 5G plus. Let us show you why this device is a good choice.


Telcos are already ramping up 5G rollout in the country and everyone wants to experience that kind of speed, and the only way to do it is to have a smartphone with support for 5G connectivity. The moto g 5G plus is one of those devices, thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 5G with a Snapdragon X52 5G Modem-RF System that works in tandem with on-device AI to bring multi-gigabit speeds. This platform supports all key regions and frequency bands from mmWave and sub-6 to international TDD, FDD, and DSS — as well as both SA and NSA modes.

If we apply that technology to our current devices, we can enjoy streaming without buffering, gaming without lags, and video calling in high-resolution. Aside from experiencing super-fast internet speeds, 5G will also help bring technological innovations to consumers. Given the new connectivity, you will soon be able to turn your home into a smart home with smart connected appliances and smart home security systems. Your smartphone will also become a hub for more IoT devices.

In other words, when 5G becomes widely available in the Philippines and around the world, the moto g 5G plus with the 5G GOMO SIM is ready to bring you that ultra-fast speed.

6.7-inch FHD+ CinemaVision display

Do you frequently play games or spend hours binge-watching videos on YouTube, Netflix, or other streaming services? If yes, then you need a device with a big screen and good resolution. The moto g 5G plus delivers that with its 6.7-inch CinemaVision display with Full HD+ resolution or equal to 409ppi. It also uses an LTPS LCD for rich and accurate colors and supports HDR10 and Amazon HDR formats. Want that smooth refresh rate that some expensive flagship smartphones have? Don’t worry as the moto g 5G plus can deliver a 90Hz refresh rate for some smooth animation and transitions.

Versatile rear and front cameras

People nowadays use their smartphones to document their lives by taking photos and videos that can be uploaded to social media or for personal keeping. In this case, a device that can adapt to different shooting scenarios is a good thing to have. The moto g 5G plus is one device that can keep up with mobile photographers with its quad-rear camera setup, consisting of a 48MP F1.7 main shooter with Quad Pixel technology for shooting hi-res images, 5MP F2.2 macro for those really close-up shots, 8MP F2.2 ultra-wide for beautiful landscapes, and 2MP F2.2 depth for better bokeh effects. For the front, the moto g 5G plus offers two cameras – a 16MP F2.0 main for hi-res selfies and an 8MP F2.2 ultra-wide for easy group selfies.

Powerful chipset and big memory

Given the hardware feature mentioned above, you will need a powerful chipset to make sure that everything is running smoothly. In the case of the moto g 5G plus, it’s equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 5G SoC manufactured using the 7nm process. It uses eight Qualcomm Kryo 475 CPU and an Adreno 620 GPU, which offers 20% faster graphics rendering compared to the previous generation, 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. What this means is that the moto g 5G plus can breeze through your day-to-day tasks but it’s powerful enough to run the most resource-hungry games available in the Google Play Store.

Big battery with fast charging

A powerful, feature-packed smartphone like the moto g 5G plus just begs to be used. The good news is, it’s equipped with a large 5,000mAh battery, which can keep up with the heavy users, including gamers. You can even use it as a 5G-capable WiFi hotspot for your non-5G devices if you want to. And when it’s time to charge it, you don’t have to wait long, thanks to the 20W fast charging support.

Affordable price

Let’s talk about the bang-for-the-buck part. The moto g 5G plus just costs PHP 16,995, making it one of the most affordable, yet powerful, 5G smartphones in the market.

So, if there’s 5G coverage in your area and you want to utilize it right away or want to future-proof your next smartphone purchase, go get the moto g 5G plus. It’s available in authorized resellers nationwide and at the Lenovo Mobile Official Store in Lazada.
