When Samsung says “Unbox Your Phone,” they aren’t joking. On our doorstep this morning was a large package from Samsung, containing a few goodies that you won’t see in your standard retail packaging. Let’s unbox it, shall we? (more…)
I…I don’t really know how to comment on this. It’s so many parts awesome, yet equally as wtf.
The new Motorola is here!
As the great prophet Kyrie Irving once said, “I’m telling you, it’s right in front of our faces. They lie to us.” This quote, of course, concerns the theory that the government and scientific community has been lying to everyone and that the Earth is not round, but indeed, quite flat. In an attempt to double down on the silly notion that our flat planet magically spins around a giant fire ball in the sky, Google has launched a revamped version of Google Earth, complete with guided tours, an “I’m feeling lucky” feature, and so much more.

It has been a couple of years since we last reviewed a Moto G phone, so even though we don’t always drop down to the mid-tier range, it felt like a good time to make a return before Samsung’s new ridiculously expensive products arrive. This time, it’s the Moto G5 Plus, a phone that is going to give a whole bunch of phones a run for their money, money that probably doubles what Motorola wants to charge you for this guy.
To recap, the Moto G5 Plus is the upgraded version of the Moto G5 that will be sold here in the US. In other words, there is no Moto G5 here, only this guy, the Plus. It has a 5.2-inch FHD LCD display (1080p), Snapdragon 625 processor, 12MP f/1.7 camera, fingerprint reader, microSD support, water repellent coating, 3000mAh non-removable battery, and connectivity on all major US carriers. Depending on how much you want to spend, you get to choose between 32GB or 64GB storage and either 2GB or 4GB RAM.
I’ve spent the past couple of weeks with the 64GB/4GB model and have a whole bunch of thoughts to share about it. Let’s do this right now – this is our Moto G5 Plus review. (more…)
