Both have a Full HD screen, on a 5.2in display for the G5S and a 5.5in display for the larger model.
Moto G5S Plus has a dual-camera setup at its back.
On the camera front, Moto G5 Plus doesn't have a dual set up like the 'S' variant, and features a 12MP Dual Pixel camera with f/1.7 aperture, while the front has a 5MP one for selfies. Since then, the E4 Plus has been made available in some places, the UK included, while the E4 even landed in the US (where it's been discounted already).
The rest of the spec sheet of the Moto G5S remains more or less the same.
That being said, you can find my original Moto G5 review below. Moreover, it retains the fingerprint scanner on the front. The phone also comes with TurboCharge feature.
So what's different this year? Users will be able to expand the memory storage of this phone by using a microSD card. The Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus are high mid-range smartphones that basically aimed mainstream smartphone buyers in developing markets. Moto G5S runs on Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box. Moto G5S Plus powers with Snapdragon 2.0 GHz 625 octa-core processor and Adreno 506 GPU. Just like the Moto G5S, the storage can be expanded via a microSD card.
The Moto G5S and G5S Plus advance the camera capabilities of the G series further still though.
In a nutshell the Moto G5S, over the G5, offers a larger screen, better battery and improved rear camera.
In the case of the Moto G5S, this has meant an upgrade to a full-metal aluminum unibody design.
The updates to the Moto G5S are much more exciting.
So is it as good as it sounds? The result is a slightly duller, less vibrant display than on the Moto G4. Instead, it will be unlocked and usable on all four major carriers.
Under the hood, it's a similar story. Running Android Nougat, the Motorola Moto E4 Plus sports a 5.5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 427 processor. You can register for updates on the official website and John Lewis will also stock the devices. The former captures the standard RGB shots, while the latter captures depth in the images. Or has that big battery come at a big cost?
Do you think these phones are worthy updates to their predecessors? Today, the phone has emerged showing some new shades of itself in a press render.
Moto G5S. More Metal. It gets the same 3000mAh unit with fast charging support. Exposures are balanced and focus assured. Its upper half holds an earpiece flanked by a selfie camera and LED flash. This makes it the clear bargain of the two.
Indoors in low light, however, it's not great.
The colors aren't anything out of the blue. Verizon will also begin pre-orders on the same day. It comes with video stabilization and can record videos at 4K Ultra HD resolution at 30 fps.
Moto G5S is the smaller sibling among the two, both in terms of size as well as specifications.
