It is worth buying the Moto G4 Plus

Moto G5 (Plus) & G4 (Plus) in purchase comparison

What are the significant differences?

As already mentioned at the beginning, there are major differences in the design and the materials used. One of the biggest differences between the Motorola Moto G5 and Moto G4 is that the display has shrunk from 5.5 inches to 5 inches. Accordingly, the dimensions of the Moto G5 are smaller, which makes it more manageable. On the positive side, the battery of the Moto G5 can be changed, while the one in the Moto G4 is permanently installed.

Most of the differences in the specifications are between the two Plus versions: A newer chip works in the Moto G5 and the RAM now offers 3 GB instead of 2 GB in the Moto G4 Plus. In addition, the display of these models has shrunk somewhat, namely from 5.5 to 5.2 inches with the same resolution. The Moto G5 Plus receives plus points for the support of Bluetooth 4.2 and LTE with up to 300 Mbit / s in the downstream.

Brief conclusion: Switching from Moto G4 to G5 is welcome

If the determined price differences and the differences in the equipment of the G4 and G5 models are compared, then it becomes apparent that the purchase of the Moto G5 is not only worthwhile if the interested party attaches importance to a replaceable battery. The price difference between the two models is comparatively small. With the plus versions, the buyer has to think a few more things: Are the innovations in relation to the surcharge? We say: yes! In terms of equipment, the model has some improvements that justify the higher purchase price. The only disadvantage could be that the buyer likes the customizable design of the 4th generation of Moto smartphones better.
