Verdict

Overall, the Moto G5 is a good overall smartphone, and has something to offer for everyone. It isn’t the most well-built smartphone, but is definitely one of the most ergonomic. It doesn't have the most vibrant display to consume content, but isn't bad either. The display is visible in the sun, and everyday performance is acceptable. The buit-in speaker and limited 16GB storage are the only drawbacks. We do not recommend anyone to buy a phone with 16GB storage, unless all you need is calling, basic messaging apps and internet access.

If extra long battery life is a priority, you can consider the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 or even the Redmi 3s. If a good camera is what you are looking for, the Honor 6X is your pick, while the Redmi Note 4 is the one for those who demand performance. The Moto G5, meanwhile, is for those looking for an ergonomic smartphone that is dependable on everyday basis. It’s compact, has decent battery stamina, offers stock-like Android interface and has an aura of assurance. It isn’t the best smartphone at around 10k, but is one that you can depend on as per need.
