Moto G5 Plus Review: Should You Wait or Buy LG V20 Instead?; Compare Android Experience, Specs, PriceBy Anita Valencia, UniversityHerald Reporter
Lenovo gears up to launch Moto G5 in March next year and the specifications have been leaked online. Is it worth the value? How does it compare to LG V20?
Moto G5 Plus vs LG V20: Design and Build
While there is not much to talk about Moto G5 Plus design, the leak suggests a 5.5-inch smartphone with 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution and 401 ppi pixel density.
LG V20 is a phablet device sporting 5.7-inch screen and a higher pixel density of 513 ppi due to bigger screen resolution. LG V20 is remarkably thin and durable - using aircraft-standard material to build its chassis.
Moto G5 Plus vs LG V20: Internal specifications
Both devices run on Android Nougat out of the box but Moto G5 Plus will bring a pure Android experience, free from bloatware. On the other hand, LG V20 with LG UX 5.0 custom skin brings a different user interface.
What's great about Moto G5 Plus stock Android is that it will get firmware update faster than any other handsets. However, custom Android in LG V20 is more user-friendly as it has been customized by the phonemaker. Most of the times, it provides more functionality with added features to the phone, according to MobilityArena.
Moto G5 Plus vs LG V20: Camera
LG V20 packs a dual 16 MP - 8 MP rear camera that features OIS for steady shoots, LED flash and laser autofocus.
This optic department is unbeatable when compared to Moto G5 Plus with its decent 16 MP standard sensor. KnowYourMobile reported that there will be two RAM/ROM pairings offered in Moto G5: 16GB-3GB RAM and 32 GB-4GB RAM.
Moto G5 Plus vs LG V20: Price
Moto G5 Plus could be priced above $200 but it will still be cheaper than the LG V20 with a $800 price tag.
If an unbreakable construction and dual-lens camera are the main concern, LG V20 is a great buy. However, if users want a compact phone with decent specs functionality running the latest firmware without burning a hole in their pocket - Moto G5 Plus is a solid choice.
