  1. Amazon matched the price @ Costco which is why it is being sold at $179.99. Interesting to see that the Amazon offers version of this phone sells for $5 more.

    1. Motorola doesn't have the best record for updates and has not said whether the G5 Plus will get Android 7.1 or 8. There was a security update for the phone in July.

  4. I purchased the G5 plus from bh last week and returned it. I should have more research. The hardware is great. It was out of the box talk to the general security update. I went to the forms and the complaint is not only in the United States retail channel but also in Europe and in India and I believe other places. Motorola does not update the phones very regularly and what they do there behind a couple of months. Most people don't have the retail channel phone G 5+ in the US only have either the January or March update. Even though it's cheap, I was actually expecting Motorola to provide updates as they had jump on the wagon saying that they would. I decided to get the cricket I phone 5SP 64 gigs for 229, actually cheaper than the other phone. Yes it's a smaller screen yes is an iPhone not android and no additional storage can be added but I am much happier with the fact that Apple will provide security consistently. To me that's more important to getting a fast phone with the big screen that is insecure. My feet have a base is that in less you must have a large screen and it must be Andre, go for an iPhone, there are a lot of used ones or preowned that are cheap that you can get secure fairly easily. My recommendation is not to get the motor on the phone. It is a very nice piece of hardware and if you intend to put lineage os on it, then go for it you should have updates regularly that way . If you don't care about getting security updates, then it is a good phone for that. But what it does, it's very good with four gigs of RAM and 64 gigs of storage plus expandable storage and a nice big screen and a decent camera. That's just my two cents

    1. Phone isn't insecure. I have used pretty much only Motorola phones for the past 3 years because they have tremendous value. All Motorola gets at least 1 big update. I had a first gen moto g on kikat 4.4 and I was surprised to get 5.1.1 at all.

      Security on android is slow because of OEM and carrier flow through. Even flagships like Galaxy line and such are slow to roll out.

    2. "Security on android is slow because of OEM and carrier flow through. Even flagships like Galaxy line and such are slow to roll out."

      Actually security on Android is slow because the companies involved put a very low priority on it. If they wanted, they could pass these updates on in a matter of a couple of weeks, instead of several months/never.

      Google sends along these updates, expecting them to be handled in a reasonable and responsible fashion, but the OEMS and carriers blow Google off.

  5. Be aware that if you are going to use this phone on Verizon or Verizon MVNO, that there are serious call quality issues reported by users. Be sure to read about them at the Motorola website Community/Support Forums. From the Motorola Community/Support menu simply search on Moto G5 plus Verizon and look for a topic "very poor call quality". There is a Moto/Lenovo support analyst that is providing updates to a potential fix for this issue, but after several months there is no fix. Users report they cannot hear conversations and others can't hear them either. Be aware before purchasing if using on Verizon. I returned mine.

    1. Wow. I was about to order one. Thanks for the heads up on the call quality issue. I presume the that the unlocked Moto E4 XT1768 is ok since Verizon sells their own prepaid verssion of the Moto E XT1767PP .

    2. I am glad that you brought this to everyone's attention. The is issue occurs when volte is enabled on Verizon. One of the solutions mentioned is to disable volte, but you would not be able to talk and use the internet at the same time.

      One of the real problems of the clunky, outdated CDMA technology that Verizon is still saddled with.

    1. The Moto G 5th camera is midling, and it takes forever to boot, and yes Lenovo is downright negligent in providing updates. But it is great otherwise.

      There are also many "unlocked, all carrier" phones that work poorly on Verizon, and the problem really is with Verizon, which uses a hard-to-work with legacy network.

    2. What carrier are you using?

    3. It's almost like Verizon is going out of there way to interfere with open Internet rules or something!

    4. I use on AT&T. There are few universal phones in the first place. So there can not be many when there are actually few.

      At $200 find me an universal phone that is better?

    5. Will vouch here too that it works very well on AT&T.

  8. Hi Dennis. You listed QVC's Samsung Galaxy J7 bundled with one year of TracFone service for a whopping $12. That's quite a deal! ;-)

  10. "Unlocked LeEco Le Pro3 64 GB LTE Android phone $238.00 (reg $349.99)"

    As a result of skinflint cost-cutting savings, this phone is missing the headphone jack. I considered getting it, but went for another model that wasn't crippled. Good riddance to this company. Friends don't let friends buy LeEco. Unless they are dead friends.

    (I have yet to run into anyone who uses an iPhone who likes the company's similar efforts to save a few cents by leaving out headphone jack. But due to a combination of the "cult of Apple", the company advertising that the missing jack is "courage", and the premium features found in other aspects of the phone, Apple can get away with screwing its customers like this.)

  12. While at the mall to get some groceries at the warehouse shopping club, I visited Target to see if they had any VZ Moto G Play left (Brickseeker said no, but thought it wouldn't hurt to look). Scored the last one! Wouldn't have known to look if not for this website. Much thanks!
