Moto G5 Plus Unboxing (Video)


After the holidays, it's time to come back with the videos! This time, we have the Unboxing of the Moto G5 Plus, the highly anticipated Motorola phone. Highly anticipated because, as you will remember, it was thanks to the Moto G that this new era of smartphones began, where low-cost phones (medium / medium-low range) are, at last, a viable option on the market.

It is enough to go back about 3 or 4 years and the panorama was totally different. If you didn't buy a top-of-the-range phone, you were doomed to a really frustrating experience, with a slow phone constantly crashing, demanding that we free up space (even refusing to update apps for lack of space) and unable to perform the most basic tasks. efficiently. The first years of low-end or lower-middle-range smartphones made us look forward to the era of simple and simple phones. It is not a joke; it was a terrible thing.

With the Moto G and its various competitors, however, manufacturers began to offer us an experience quite similar to that of a high-end, sacrificing few features (usually the quality of the screen and cameras are the first to suffer), to give us a stable, fast phone that was capable of doing the essentials, as a messenger, social networks, browsing, effectively and efficiently.

The Moto G5 Plus continues this trend, inheriting even more features than we usually see in the high-end as an aluminum body and fast charging, but keeping a low cost.Both the Moto G5 and the Moto G5 Plus have been launched in Peru with Claro, for an extremely attractive price. In Prepaid, we can find them for S / 879 (the G5), and S / .1,079 (the G5 Plus).

For this extra price, the Moto G5 Plus offers us several things that are worth its higher cost. For starters, we have a better processor (the Snapdragon 625 instead of the 430), a bigger, better-resolution screen, and a bigger battery, too. It should be noted that the G5 Plus is the only one of the two to include the Turbo Power Charger, so those S / .200 are well invested. I, personally, would go for the G5 Plus over the G5.

The only worrying thing about the team, which I keep mentioning since they were announced, is that only the 2GB RAM model has arrived in Peru.It is somewhat limiting, considering how poorly optimized Android is in general. But since Motorola usually uses a version of Android with few modifications and tries to keep it light, maybe 2 GBs is enough.
