The Moto G5 Plus is slightly taller than the Moto G5, owing to the larger display. It also has a bigger battery and more storage option. Both feature a fingerprint scanner, 3.5mm audio jack and microUSB port. 


The devices come with a new design as the metal finish puts it at par with others. Also, if you notice the company has reduced the screen size compared to the Moto G4. However, the budget devices aren't all metal and the sides sport plastic with metal effect.
