The Moto G5 Plus might be the budget draw of the year so far, but what if you’re really trying hard to save up cash? You could always look elsewhere, but Moto’s got an even more affordable smartphone - the G5. This ‘not-Plus’ variant comes with a Snapdragon 430, 3GB RAM, 16GB storage (with a dedicated microSD slot) and a 2800mAh battery (with 10W quick charging). But don’t think that’s all there is to the G5. It’s got 13MP / 5MP cameras, a front-facing fingerprint scanner, and best of all, a delightfully clean version of Android Nougat. Motorola’s added some features - there’s inbuilt Amazon integration and Moto Display and Actions, but it’s as unspoilt a variant of Android as you can expect from anyone but Google. We’ve convinced you? Well, just save up ₹11,999 and head over to Amazon India. The Moto G5 goes on sale tonight, and there are also some early bird offers on till April 6.
