Deal: Motorola Moto G5S Plus price drops to under $180
Need a decent Android smartphone that does not cost more than $180? If you do, the Motorola Moto G5S Plus is worth your consideration, as the handset is currently sold for $179.99 by Newegg (a pretty popular US retailer).

Normally, the Moto G5S Plus is priced at $279.99. In order to buy it for just $179.99 from Newegg, you have to use the promo code EMCEEPR58 at checkout. It appears that this deal is available for 3 days only, so it'll end on Sunday (November 4). Another thing to note is that this particular Moto G5S Plus has 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of expandable storage space - there's also a version with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage space, but that one isn't part of the deal. If you want to take advantage of this offer, visit Newegg's website here

The Moto G5S Plus that Newegg is selling comes with US warranty, is unlocked and compatible with most relevant US carriers, including all major ones: Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint.

In case you don't know, the G5S Plus is one of Motorola's smartphones originally released in 2017 - just like the slightly superior Moto X4 that can now be bought for $199. The Moto G5S Plus does not employ the most modern design (read: it's got large bezels), but it's well-built and its entire body is splash-resistant, while its battery easily lasts a full day on a single charge.

It's a pretty good deal for this smartphone considering it supports Google's ARCore.

I have this phone in the family and mostly, the experience has only been bad. Slow updates, weak security patch inspite of near stock Android, sluggishness and poor picture quality even when compared to other $200 phones are some of the issues. However , few pros are the very good build quality , 3.5mm headphone jack , FM Radio and good battery life.

This phone does ARCore, so when you say it's sluggish, then I don't believe you, especially since I have this phone as well. It has a SD 625 Octa core 2 GHz processor. With a 650 MHz GPU, and 3 GB of ram. It's no slouch.

I am certain that having the ability to run a certain framework is not a metric to measure fluidity of the smartphone. Also, I am unaware of your usage. But I definitely have issues with the phone. Eg. If you play PUBG on this device then there are frequent frame drops. Another place where I noticed frame drops were when you have apps open in the background and you scroll to very first app in the carousel. And 10 GB space is still free on the device. Another example, a depth picture takes nearly 5 seconds to actually process. Due to these experiences I called this phone sluggish. Your experience might be different, and you are certainly entitled to share your opinions but I spoke from experience and this is what I experienced. Like Kiko said , SD 625 and Adreno 506 are not known for their performance, more for their battery efficiency. And they are old. Honestly, a device with SD 636, with its Kryo cores will be much better. Where I live, a phone like Moto One Power with SD 636, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB Internal storage , 5000 mAH battery sells for $195.
