Software, Display, Hardware
As initially pointed out, the Motorola Moto G5 is a 4G-enabled dual SIM Android device running on the Nougat variant of the operating system in the purest form possible. I.e. No bloatware, No skins, just Android as is.
The device, which features a metallic build, by the way, has a 5-inch IPS LCD touch display having a 1080 by 1920 pixel resolution and a pixel density of 440.
Under its hood sits a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC which is an Octa-core CPU clocked at 1.4 GHz for the Motorola G5. That and the Adreno 505 GPU for processing graphics as well as 2GB (or 3, if you’re willing to drop more) of RAM for seamless multitasking.
For storage, the device can be picked up as a 16 or 32GB device. Which storage option you go for would be in tandem with any of the following two configurations …
- 2GB RAM + 16GB ROM
- 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM
Both configurations, however, support expansion by a microSD card (capacities up to 256GB).
