Motorola G5S XT1799 Specs Overview

Let us discuss about the features and functionalities of Motorola G5S smartphone. Feel free to read the reviews below to learn more about the smartphone.

Display & Design

Enjoy your day with this affordable and portable Android 4G smartphone with 5.2 inches IPS LED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors display. According to the size, it has 150 x 73.5 x 9.5 mm dimensions and 1080 x 1920 pixels, 16:9 ratio resolutions.

Looking at the front we have a 5-megapixel front camera at the top left-hand side and an LED flash lite at the right side while the earpiece is positioned in the middle of both selfie camera and LED Flash. Under the display screen, there is a home menu button for easy navigation.

G5s Moto fingerprint sensors

The fingerprint sensor is also integrated on the home menu button and not at the rear side of the phone. Thanks to the well-rounded rear camera design that gives the phone a unique look and feel.


Motorola G5S is powered with an Android 7.1 operating system clocked with Snapdragon8937 Octa-core 1.4GHz processor. However, Android 7.1 is not actually the latest Android Operating system but still remains relevant and supported by thousands of Apps and games from Google play store. I am sure that the Snapdragon8937 Octa-core 1.4GHz processor is ready to ensure optimum performance and stability.

Memory Size

If there is anything that made this smartphone special then it must be the memory size, you hardly see a smartphone in this price range offering 4GB Random Access Memory and 64GB built-in storage memory.

With 4GB RAM  you are ready to multitask with your Motorola G5S, you will also enjoy the best performance. The 64GB ROM is big enough to house all your favorite apps, games, and media files such as music and videos.


Motorola G5s camera quality

One of the reviews I saw on Jumia indicated that this phone offers 16MP + 16MP front and back camera but that’s not true. I did my own homework only to discover that the phone offers 16 MP, f/2.0, PDAF rear camera featuring  LED flash,  Auto-HDR, and panorama while the front camera is 5 MP, f/2.0 with LED flash.

The camera might not be the best but surely good enough to bring the real beauty in you, the modern front and back LED flash is ready to enhance and beautify the moment and events that matter most to you irrespective of the weather or time.

Battery Capacity

I have nothing against this phone when it comes to the battery capacity, with onboard 3000 mAh capacity, you will be able to explore your world consistently without worrying about low battery. Though, how long a battery can last might be hard to ascertain because it depends on how you use it.

Other Features

If you browse on the internet more often then you need a 4G enabled smartphone that will offer you the best connectivity speed you need. Thanks to Motorola for bringing this affordable smartphone with 4G LTE support.

Once again if you are worried about dual Sim support, then you got nothing to worry about, it supports dual sim and as well supports fingerprint security sensor for your own privacy.
