We’ve received Lenovo’s latest Moto G5 Plus to review, and before we jump into the review proper, we thought a bit of an unboxing video would be a bit of fun. There’s not much in the Moto G5 Plus box, but even still, I managed to knock the camera over, and drop my SIM card.

Yes, we like to have a bit of fun with our videos at Ausdroid, and after initially thinking this video was rubbish and we’d have to re-film it, I decided to cut it together and make a light-hearted unboxing from the pieces.

I think you’ll find it quite enjoyable, albeit brief. Our full review (and a brief first impressions post) will be coming over the next two weeks or so.

Only the Chinese could come up with something as bad as “Hello Moto ” jingle jingle. I hate that on my G4plus since it went to Android 7..

Did they send you the 4GB RAM + 32GB Storage model? I didn’t hear you mention it in the video.

Nice looking phone. Should be under $400 here I suspect for the 64GB version which is really good. Does the Oz version have NFC (Seems not available in all markets),

Thanks Chris


Any word on when this will be available for purchase. Have been patiently waiting.


We’re attending a briefing very soon to find out the answer to this and many more questions. What we do know, though, is they won’t be far away.


Thanks appreciate the response. Definitely hope it’s sooner rather than later. Have been recommending the hell of this phone.
