Motorola Moto G5 Features

Interactive Fingerprint

One of the setback of the last Moto G4 was that the fingerprint scanner it has on the front panel was just meant for unlocking the device, and did not serve as the home button. Motorola amended their mistake this time around as the Motorola Moto G5 will be coming with a fingerprint scanner that does not only unlocking function  but also supports gesture for back and home button. This is a welcome development as the on-screen soft keys can now be hidden as well.

Stock Android 7.0 Nougat

Another great advantage of using a Motorola smartphone is that they always come with a near stock Android operating system, which makes it easy to operate. The Motorola Moto G5 will be coming with the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS, which can serve as a huge benefit.


Phase Detection Auto Focus

This time around, the brand is featuring a 13MP camera on the back of the Motorola Moto G5, with bigger pixels and lesser aperture. The top notch feature of the camera is the inclusion of Phase detection and auto focus, as it can focus on any object with the blink of an eye.

Metal Build

We all witnessed how Motorola launched their Moto series with plastic build, this was a little bit accepted because they are budget smartphones. However, they have stepped up their game with the Motorola Moto G5, because the device will be coming with the same metallic build as the Moto M.
