Motorola, or moto as they are known nowadays, has been a household name for smartphones ever since the dawn of the millennium. In the Philippines, however, they have had to lay low for a while but are now making a comeback several new devices; one of which is the moto G 5G Plus which aims to be ultrafast for all regardless of your needs.

The display is complemented by a single-bottom firing speaker. Though a proper set of earphones is still the optimal way to experience music, the moto g 5G Plus’ audio system is loud and detailed enough for you to enjoy tunes with a group of your friends or properly hear meetings and classes.

5G for the Masses

It’s no secret that 5G is already becoming available in key areas in the metro. There are a few hiccups, however, for those who would like to experience next generation speeds. Most 5G smartphones rest in the higher end of the market, but not everyone has the dough to spend for a flagship-class device. The moto g 5G Plus aims to bring 5G to the masses by offering faster mobile data speeds in a midrange package.

We tested the smartphone’s 5G connectivity by going to places that have 5G coverage in the metro: Greenbelt and Bonifacio Global City. The fastest data speeds we clocked via the SpeedTest app was a whopping 136Mbps download, which is miles faster than the average 40Mbps that we get using 4G LTE.
