Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus Get Unveiled At MWC 2017: Features, Tech Specs And Price At A Glance

Lenovo-owned smartphone brand Motorola has been a been a hit in the past thanks to powerful specifications, pure Android and affordable pricing. The 5th generation isn’t much different as it packs the features you know and takes it to another level. The Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus were unveiled at the Mobile World Congress yesterday. The Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus have traded style for performance. The home button now houses a fingerprint sensor for both the smartphones. The fingerprint sensor encased home button now replaces the navigation keys. The home button is capable of helping you go back to the home screen, take you back a level and trigger the multitasking view. The hardware on these two smartphones is different. As you might have noticed earlier they used to have the same hardware albeit a different sized screen. This has changed now and we shall discuss it in the next paragraph.
