Here are our first camera samples from the Moto G5 Plus

The Moto G5 and its bigger sibling - G5 Plus - were just announced today in Barcelona. And while Motorola phones are not known for having the best cameras in existence, we do expect at least passable results by a 2017 smartphone. This is why the first thing we decided to do was take a few shots with the G5 Plus.

Obviously, these pictures are not anything to go by, due to the limited scenarios we've tested the phone in, but they are the first samples we did with the phone, and they're worth sharing. So, without further ado, here are our first photo samples from the Moto G5 Plus.

That does not look impressive, TBH.

The setting itself just doesn't look impressive. Four of the photos were taken with a significant portion of the subject behind glass, one was a selfie, and that leaves one normal image.

It could just be the person taking the photos.... So many times on PA I've seen photo "samples" or "shootout" photos of so many different phones that just dont look the like the cameras full potential result. I go to other tech sites / blogs when viewing phone photography now. TLDR: PA isnt good at showing phone photography when theyre behind the lens.
