Design & display

High-grade aluminium build

The Moto G5 is built using strong materials giving it a bold metallic look, available in lunar grey and fine gold.  

Premium display

A bright 5-inch screen fronts the G5, with Full HD resolution. Here you’ll be able to see, enjoy, and use the latest operating system from Google, Android Nougat. 


Sharper pictures

On the back of the smartphone, there’s a 13MP camera, which you can launch quickly by twisting your wrist twice using Moto Actions. The camera’s phase detection technology is also on board to let you focus your photos quicker than ever, making sure you never miss a thing.  

Brush up your selfies

There’s also a 5MP front-facing camera, so you can be in the frame, too. And with ‘beautification mode’ you can airbrush away any imperfections so you always look camera-ready.

The Moto G5 comes bundles with a 10W microUSB rapid charger, letting you inject hour’s worth of power in just a few minutes.

Expandable memory

Moto G5 is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap Phone bought the phone approx 3months from the Birmingham store near the the Rotunda. The phone initially was good, camera was great, however after about 6-8 weeks the phone started crashing. Surfing the web was redicuously slow. Keeps showing errors and asking to close app or wait. UI errors keep popping up. . You type something it takes takes up to 10-30s to appear or delete. Web pages up redicuously slow, I'm talking minute or more that's if it does not crash. This renders the phone useless for surfing the web. Carphone when I phoned them said I had to send phone to the manufacturer Lenovo./Motorola and told me good luck ? Carphone should accept responsibility for this very poor performing phone. The great reviews I can only assume are based on phones fresh out the box, or by review companies/ individuals that are not impartial. I have updated the phone with new software download was good for about 2days before back to total rubbish performance. Only thing phone is now useful for is taking photos. I would not pay £40 never mind over a 100 notes. Please do not buy this phone based on the initial glowing reviews. Stay well clear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from faulty phone have you phoned motorola tech support i am about to purchase a moto g5, before placing my order i rang motorola several times with technical and non technical queries, the response was excellent 10/10 for polite knowledeable staff. I question the bad reviews, have they tried to resolve problems through motorola before placing a bad review? I cannot answer all the questions as not bought phone yet

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Budget Device Great Budget Device with fantastic features. Killer camera for its price and fast charging. Only issue is I've noticed screen image retention or burn in. Not a massive issue but may get worse over time. Overall a brilliant phone and would recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Watch for Motorola (Lenovo) Repairs Was a great phone and still would be if my speaker hadn't stopped working randomly rendering the phone useless for calls unless it's connected to another speaker... Literally phone has no audio and sadly Motorola don't allow Carphone Warehouse to repair the phone and Motorola say the phones repair could take 7 working days but won't promise it won't take longer and also said they won't be able to contact to tell whether it will take longer and you have to cover the postage to them. So great phone literally no faults until you have to deal with Motorola repairs so keep the phone safe and hope for no random speaker breakages
