Motorola G5 Plus provides a solid phone with near stock Android. I purchased one with Amazon ads on Prime Day. I have not tried the camera yet, but also have Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge to compare it to. One unique feature is that it has Wifi calling, which combined with T Mobile service gets free calls to the U.S. from a Wifi hotspot almost anywhere in the world.
This phone is too similar to the Moto G4 Plus, and is a step down as well as far as screen size goes, from 5.5 inch to 5.2 inch.

I actually like that it's smaller, it's easier to hold & operate with one hand (I even wish they'd release the G5 in the US, not just the PLUS model). The slightly smaller screen also means a slight bump in dpi, it's now 424 up from 401. Not a biggie,... (continues)
