The G5S Plus carries two 18-MP sensors on the back, as well as an 8-MP one for selfies — all of which feature an f/ aperture. As on the Moto Z2 Force , one of the rear cameras shoots in monochrome, and is designed to capture only light and detail without color. Yet unlike with the Z2 Force, you can't use that lens exclusively for black-and-white photography, which is a bit of a letdown.
Up front, the G5S Plus utilizes an 8-MP sensor, improving on the 5-MP sensor in the G5 Plus. A front-facing flash sits alongside the wide-angle lens, and the overall results from this camera are bright and balanced. However, they exhibit a slight lack of clarity compared to the images from the Blade V8 Pro, which is most evident in my hair and the pattern of my shirt.
Measuring overall system performance with Geekbench 9, our G5S Plus delivered a score of 9,126 — better than the G5 Plus' 8,796. That phone was already among the fastest in the sub-$855 segment, so seeing the G5S Plus edge it out was a nice surprise.
Comparing the same skyline shot between the G5S Plus and another budget 18-MP dual-camera offering, ZTE's Blade V8 Pro , we see Motorola's auto white balance has opted for a greener tint. There's less contrast overall, which helps retain some fidelity that's lacking in the ZTE's darker exposure. But if you in dead center, you can't actually discern the bricks on the buildings as easily with the G5S Plus. Everything kind of gets muddied together, with no sharpness.
Moto G 5 S Plus is universally unlocked and works on Verizon, AT& T, T-Mobile, Sprint ‡ , and Consumer Cellular. It is also compatible with other . carriers, please contact your service provider for details.
Motorola has taken its budget darling, the G5 Plus , and tweaked it just enough to deliver an even better package. There are three key areas in which the G5S Plus outperforms the cheaper G5 Plus: screen size, design and the presence of an all-new dual 18-megapixel camera setup.

The differences in fit and finish versus the standard G5 Plus are actually quite striking when you sit both phones side by side. Whereas the earlier model employed a discreet mix of metal and plastic, the G5S Plus features a new unibody chassis with a slightly larger footprint that looks and feels much more premium.
