Moto G5 takes the lead of the G-series after the quite popular G4. Instead of pumping up the G5 with more powerful features than its predecessor, Moto has packed the G5 with a decent set of hardware that may not look strong on paper but is cleverer than that of the G4. The Moto G smartphone lineup sits above the E and below the Z series.
