@debrad.rb7ems, let me check on things. I’ve just been told our support team can move the G5S+ to Sprint coverage when members with that phone experience poor coverage, and I need to double-check whether we’re selling the G5S+ outfitted for Sprint coverage in our online store yet.
As far as comparing the G5+ (or G5S+) to the Moto Pure, I’m a Moto X person, I’ve had the 1st Gen, 2nd Gen and the X Pure and there are a few features on the X line that I really miss when I try a different phone. As much as I like the Moto G series and especially the G5+, I am just really hooked on being able to wave my hand over my phone and see my notifications. I also like having the phone read me my text messages when I’m driving. I don’t use NFC (tap-to-pay) but if you do, that is also missing on the Moto G5+.
Some of our Community members have built a comparison table here: Detailed Supported Phone Features
Let us know what you end up deciding - we have a limited supply of B-stock (customer-returned, like-new) cases and if we have one available that fits your new phone, we’ll be glad to send it to you.
(Edited to add: I’ve confirmed the G5S+ is currently (as of this writing) available from our online store with only our GSM SIM card, however if you experience coverage issues on that phone, our support team will be glad to evaluate whether moving to a Sprint coverage SIM would improve the coverage experience for you, and if so, they can provide one.)
