With the rise of various "selfie" brands, it has become extra challenging to choose a phone that can meet daily needs.
Amid promises of ground-breaking technology is the question: Are phone users willing to pay for extra features that they will not really use in their daily lives?
Considering that smartphones play a large role in users' lives, they have to be equipped with useful tools to make every day easier and less complicated.
What should smart buyers look for when shopping for a mobile phone?
Here are some key features to watch out for:
1. A decent camera
Most people have social media accounts, and a large chunk of posts on these platforms such as Facebook and Instagram are photos. A functional smartphone that has a decent camera will allow you to take social media-ready pictures of your #OOTD, #FoodForTheDay, and other subjects when inspiration strikes.
2. A strong processor
A state of the art camera does not mean much if the phone itself is always lagging. Smartphones must have strong processors that will enable users to multi-task, and make the most out of the phone's different features. No one wants a phone that can only handle one app at a time.
3. A reliable battery
A reliable battery will spare mobile phone users from the hassle of lugging around weighty power banks. It will help them enjoy their phone's features without having to worry about battery life when traveling or partying with the gang.
Packed with these essential features and backed by years of innovation, options for people looking to buy a new phone include Motorola's G series, which top up their functionality with reliable security features.
The Moto G5S and the Moto G5S Plus feature Motorola's latest upgrades, including smarter software, better camera technology, and longer battery life--the key elements of a functional smartphone.
The Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus also come with the size and precision-crafted look of premium phones with a polished all metal-unibody design, which goes very well with their spectacular 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch full-HD displays, respectively.
When it comes to battery, both the Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus house a 3000mAh all-day battery that holds enough power to last its users throughout the day. Both are also powered by a TurboPower™ charger that allows you to charge enough battery life in just 15 minutes.
Ultimately, the the Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus are backed by a 1.4GHz octa-core processor and Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 2.0GHz octa-core processor, respectively. These powerful processors enable users to run their favorite apps smoothly, watch videos with stutter-free playback, and browse the web at high speed.
Both phones are also equipped with a fingerprint reader, that does everything from unlocking the phone to authorizing app logins and mobile payments.
They also have Night Display and Quick Reply features, two new Moto experiences that are all part of the brand's effort toward a unique collection of meaningful software experiences.
Rounding out its features, the Moto G5S is equipped with a high-resolution 16MP camera that features rapid focus technology, which allows users to instantly capture perfect moments.
It also has a 5MP wide-angle front camera with an LED flash that allows beautiful selfies, day or night.
The Moto G5S Plus, on the other hand, has dual 13MP rear cameras powered by a special photo enhancement software and selective focus for a blurred background effect. It also has an 8MP wide-angle front camera equipped with an LED flash and a new panoramic mode to capture even more background.
