Battery life has been improved, allowing users to go the entire day without charging. With rapid charging, you can get hours of power in just minutes of charging. The 13MP rear camera has PDAF for quick focusing. The Snapdragon 430 chipset runs the G5 with an octa-core 1.4GHz CPU on board, and the G5 Plus has a Snapdragon 625 SoC under the hood with an octa-core 2GHz CPU.
There are differences like that between the G5 and G5 Plus. The latter sports a 3000mAh battery compared to the 2800 mAh cell that powers the G5. Both phones have an AMOLED display. The Moto G5 carries a 5-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution, while the Moto G5 Plus has a screen that is .2 inches larger.
Check out these two new videos, which we've embedded for your viewing pleasure below.

The G5Plus is incredible for the price. However, I wonder if the Redmi Note 3 Pro beats it to that.....

Redmi Note 3 Pro is quite good (32GB and 3GB RAM) but not as the Moto G5 and G5 Plus in specs. But the Redmi Note 3 Pro packs a beefy 4100mAh battery and it tops a hundred hours on GSMArena's battery chart.

I know people talk about bezels constantly but the top and bottom ones are sort of helpful if you're using the camera in tricky situations (stability, and all that). Yes, I know that's what OIS is for, but a comfortable bottom chin helps greatly.
