After an incredible return with the Razr revival, Motorola is back with the moto g 5G plus. It’s packed with features, boasts 5G on Australia’s best network, and comes in at just $499. All of that adds up to make it astonishingly good. Here’s what we love about it.

It punches above its price point…

The moto g 5G plus is a bit of a mouthful, but it has it where it counts. The Moto G range is a throwback to a few years ago, and is designed to offer phones with above average specs for below average prices. The new moto g 5G plus fits into this excellent mold. It is the first moto g family smartphone available on 5G in Australia.

The 6.7-inch, 21:9 CinemaVision Full HD+ display is designed for movie-watching without interruption, thanks to a notchless design and dual hole-punch selfie cameras. Motion is smooth thanks to a 90Hz refresh rate, and your content looks great with support for HDR10. You’ve even got a 3.5mm headphone jack if you want to bring your favourite ‘phones to the party.

The content you shoot on your moto g 5G Plus’ camera will also look great, thanks to the quad-camera design. This includes a 48-megapixel camera; a 5-megapixel Macro Vision camera for the ultra-close ups; a 2-megapixel depth camera for better Bokeh and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera with 118 degree angle. Phew!

The hardware is backed up by Motorola’s clever camera software, which features automatic smile detection; HDR; manual, and portrait mode to name a few.

…packs in the power…

The moto g 5G plus is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 5G processor, 6GB of RAM and backed up by Google Android 10. Not bad for $499, especially when you consider also that you get 128GB of storage – expandable up to 1TB via MicroSD – and a 5000mAh battery with 20W charging.

That means you get great hardware under the screen to power everything from mobile gaming to your productivity or work apps and everything in-between.

It’s similar hardware you might find in higher-end phones, but for a price that’s easier on the eyes.

…and Australia’s best 5G!
