Our Opinion

If your current phone happens to have a chipset of Snapdragon 625 or a higher end one, then you can safely ignore the option of buying this phone. Moto G5S plus can be considered as a Moto G5 Plus with camera improvements, while Moto G5S is an improvement of Moto G5 with the new Snapdragon 435 chipset. If you are looking for a good camera phone between the budget and midrange segment, then Moto G5S plus is worth a choice. The phone is expected to get quicker Android updates against the competition and comes with an almost-stock Android experience.
Talking about the cons, the camera bump behind the headset can be a deal breaker. The speaker output is not as great as the Moto G5 Plus which has a dual speaker support.

Price and Availability

The Moto G5S plus is priced at 15,999 INR, while the Moto G5S at 13,999 INR. Both the handsets can be purchased from Amazon India with the links given below:
