Which performs better?? MOTO G5s V.S. MOTO G5s Plus : Spec/ Camera Comparison/ Review | Phone & Photo





If phone camera matters to you, you better check our tests before you buy. It's not easy to tell the cameras' performance difference simply by comparing their specifications. Tests speak louder than specifications.
Before checking the test, there's a quick question for you: is a 16-megapixel camera better than a camera with only 13 megapixels?

It's simple, the answer is yes!
Wait, NOOOOOOOO!!


It's not necessary that a camera featured with more megapixels performs better than a camera with fewer megapixels. The camera performance also depends on numerous factors, including sensor size, aperture, the exclusive algorithm of each maker, etc. Again, tests speak louder than specifications.

Let's take Moto G5s and G5s plus for example and see how cameras work in different scenarios.

Test 10 : True Black and White mode

G5S Plus has a cool " True B&W" mode. The performance is pretty acceptable. If you have this phone on hand, you should give it a shot!



Test 11 : Bokeh (Depth mode)

  • Yellow light / indoor 
  • Depth effect 
One of the major differences between G5S Plus' and G5s' cameras is the bokeh effect owing to G5S Plus' dual rear cameras. Generally, G5S Plus produces a very natural outcome.

 Conclusion: If you don't have budget concern, definitely go for G5S Plus! Its camera performance is much better than G5S. However, if you care more about selfie and prefer brighter and flattering skin, G5S might be right for you.
We also think G5S Plus is pretty worth buying among budget phones under USD200 because of the steady system and nice camera.
