Cheap and nice
Phone owned for more than a year

I had this phone for a few years before I got a new phone. The phone is nice and a good starter phone. It works well and there isn't much to complain about. Nice intro when you turn the phone on, the apps install at an ok speed. The camera isn't that great though.

Best cheap phone.
Phone owned for less than a year

I've had it for almost a year and it has a huge screen, great battery, a decent camera, and a REALLY good price. It's now 2 generations old but it is not sluggish at all for it's age. Really sold me on budget phones since phones are overpriced these days.

Moto G5 Plus
Phone owned for less than a year

It has thoroughly convinced me that I will never buy another motorola phone because of it and that is a shame because I have had several moto G phones prior to the 5 Plus and was ok with them. The camera works sometimes other time is a real bear to get focused to anything the OS seems to have been hurried and lacks stability in either nougat or Oreo os
