I have been with RW for about 4 years now, I"ve got a Moto X Gen 1 phone - it was my first smartphone ever, and I really like just about everything about it. Problem is it is super slow now, doesn’t have enough memory to hold all the apps I wish it would hold, and the battery only lasts half a day or less. I think it is time for an upgrade, but I am overwhelmed at all the options.
After carefully reading lots of reviews, I was thinking of just getting the new Moto X4. but I am reading a lot of reviews here where people complain of issues with the rear camera getting cracked, and also complaints about the camera being very slow. So perhaps the G5S plus is a better choice? but I am worried that after having a Moto X 1st gen it will be a “step backwards”. Any thoughts on this? I’ve looked over the comparison charts, and read lots of reviews but I"m still just torn on what to do. I am a creature of habit, and don’t want to give up the features I am used to having with a motorola phone by switching to something like a samsung. I am not entirely sure what all the differences are, but I read a few reviews of the samsung phones and i think the motorola’s are a better fit for me.
My top needs for the phone are plenty of memory, good battery life, and a decent camera. The phone needs to be durable and able to withstand normal “life” - I have a good case on my Moto X now and have dropped it many times with no breakage ever…
Would love to hear someone chime in with comparing the Moto X4 vs. the G5SPlus, thank you!!
