I’m about ready to upgrade from my beloved Moto X1. But I’m stuck trying to decide between Moto G5Plus and Moto X4. I’d like a good excuse to get the MotoG5 because of the price, but I have questions:
If you have a Moto G5Plus, is the sound quality "tinny"? I see that a lot in reviews? How would you compare sound to Moto X1, if you ever had one?
Sound quality-–anyone know if the Moto X4’s external speaker sound quality is any better than the G5 Plus?
NFC: How important is it? I don’t use Android Pay much. However, I wonder if there are future uses for NFC and I’ll be mad if I don’t have it. Any thoughts?
Voice control: I use hands-free voice control a LOT. It looks like Moto Voice isn’t available on the G5 Plus? I understand Google Assistant is there but…I’d like to be able to voice-activate my phone from a LOCKED screen without fingerprint. Can anyone confirm whether voice activating from locked is possible on the G5Plus? Pretty sure it’s possible on the X4.
Charger cord. The whole family has microUSB charger cords. All around the house. I’d like to be able to use those universal chargers. Another plus for the G5 Plus.
So to recap, my main concerns/questions are:
- External speaker sound quality between the two phones?
- Voice activation from locked screen-- possible on both or just x4?
- NFC-- should I care?
- Charging cord: minor but annoying issue
Appreciate any insights you can share!
