How good is Moto G5S?
Let’s start with the pros first. The processor of Moto G5S is quite smooth, and there were no issues as far as Stock Android performance is concerned. The design and camera are two aspects that got a positive mark from critics and users alike. With the charger, you can expect to get a full charge for the battery in just 60 minutes or so. What doesn’t work is the battery. For a device as big as this one, one expects a better battery. The camera on the front is the best in range, so if you are a selfie person, you need to be consider that.
