Recently, the legendary firm mobile Motorola (now in the hands of Lenovo) announced the next generation of its smartphone logo, the Moto G5. This new phone can be labeled more continuity as innovative. It maintains the essence of the previous generation, but moves towards features somewhat more premium and more refined.
Definitely, Moto G5 is not absolute rethinking of Moto G4, but will satisfy the expectations of those who want a new terminal, not a sophisticated phone. Let’s see a thorough comparison of the features and benefits of both phones, and check how this is so.
Moto G4 G5 bike
As we said at the beginning, the G5 Moto is the evolution of the Moto G4. It is not a new terminal in the sense that is groundbreaking or innovative, that introduce new features or present a new design. Lol The G5 bike are a sophisticated smartphone, which includes specifications more “premium”, and that will satisfy the satisfaction of those who want the same smartphone, but improved.
However, the truth is that not everything has changed for the better in the latest smartphone from Motorola – Lenovo. A clear example is found in the processor included or in the capacity of your battery, in both case, a small step back.
The new Moto G5 presents a screen of 5 inch facing them 5.5 inches of its predecessor; in both cases the resolution is similar, Full HD at 1080 p of 1920 by 1080, although the Moto G5 offers a greater density of pixels by inch (441 ppp) that the Moto G4 (401 ppp).
The heart of the terminal
Said that in one of those aspects in which the current Moto G5 has given a small step back is in something so important as its chip but, why say this?
While the Moto G4 was a member of 617 Snapdragon Qualcomm processor with eight cores (4 x Cortex-A53 1.5 GHz & 4 x Cortex-A53 1.2 GHz), the new smartphone Moto G5 has gone to a chip Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 (MSM8937) with CPU also eight-core that supports up to 1.4 GHz and 505 Adreno GPU that supports up to 450 MHz.
The third weak point that could qualify back in 2017 new model is its autonomy. The new Moto G5 integrates a 2800 mAh battery which, according to the company, is “for all day”, while the previous Moto G4 offers a 3,000 mAh battery.

As you have seen, the rest of specs, more than the processor, battery or logically, OS to arrive, they are similar in the Moto G4 and G5 bike, which confirms that the company has opted for a smooth evolution, even leaving behind some aspects.
