Thanks! I needed a cheap-ish replacement for my LG G5.

I tried the Honor 6x from Amazon, but I ran into the known bluetooth connectivity issue with several of my devices.

This should fit the bill for the next couple years.

I think this same model was $185 a few days ago at fry's with free shipping.

https://slickdeals.net/f/11152391-fry-s-electronics-stores-64gb-moto-g5-plus-unlocked-smartphone-184...

I'm a moto fan, but I saw this phone in person at BestBuy and it was just very bland. The screen is 5.2 inches but because of the big bezels, the body still feels like a 5.5 inch phone.

In comparison, the Moto E4 PLUS (5.5 inch) was right next to it and it looked alot more refined. It is just slightly bigger and the E4 plus has a 5.5 inch screen and a 5000mah battery.

The UI on the E4 plus also had a light skin on it which made the icons pop. Yes, I know internally the specs are a lot better on the G5 Plus, but just a comparison on inital build quality and UI feel.

I'm not sure if it'll happen, but this model needs to be $150 and lower by now. There is already a newer model out the G5S Plus and furthermore the new G series will be coming out real soon.

Why thank you darling. Don't you love all the detail in my post? lol

Actually I thought I found it cheaper elsewhere but then noticed it was the 32gb model.
I would think this one is worth looking at, considering the difference in price and better return policy

Supposedly the camera is better

Think this ended up being a pricing error that Frys honored. It also sold out for shipping in like an hour.

If you have a frys near you, it was a hell of a deal.

Disagree about the price. It is really one of the best budget phones around along with the honor 7x and I havent been hearing good stuff about the honor.

I'm not complaining if it i went down to 150 lol, but I think 200 is more than reasonable for the 4gb/64gb.

B&H had that one for 150.00 not long ago. They also included 6 months Republic Wireless phone plan with it.

It's $225, not $200.

I agree, it is one of the best mid-range budget phones out there right now, especially if you're sticking to a known company that's been around a while. Couple that with all the custom rom support you can dream of.

It looks great on paper, but the feel in hand wasn't that great. In a few months, the new moto G line will be available which will have bigger displays on a smaller frame than this G5 plus and those will probably be priced at the usual $200-$250 also.

Those big bezels are so ugly and dated looking now once you get used to the 7X. I really dont think I could stomach them on a phone again. However if you are not yet used to slim bezels and are currently using another big bezel phone, maybe you can get by.

Cant wait till every phone is slim bezel...soon.
