Motorola Returns To The Philippines With Moto G 5G Plus, Razr 5G In December

by John Nieves  October 26, 2020

It’s been around two years since Motorola stopped selling smartphones in the Philippines, but the brand is coming back strong in 2020, bringing along a mid-range challenger and a high-end flagship phone with it. To celebrate its return, it’ll be offering its mid-range Moto G 5G Plus and its flagship Razr 5G.

And while we already knew that the Razr 5G would be expensive (it is a folding phone after all), Motorola’s Moto G 5G Plus is incredibly priced for what it offers.

Here’s a short rundown of Moto G 5G Plus:

  • Dual selfie cameras: the phone has two selfie cameras: a regular 16-megapixel wide-angle shooter and a secondary 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera. The second camera should make it easier to get more of your friends in the shot when taking socially-distanced selfies. Both selfie cams are housed in dual punch-hole notches on the upper left side of the display.
  • 6.7-inch Full HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate: like most mid-range phones nowadays, the Moto G 5G Plus has a faster than 60Hz refresh rate to keep things nice and fluid, though the panel is only an LCD and not an AMOLED one.
  • Quad-cameras: rear snappers on the Moto G 5G is made up of four cameras, which include a 48-megapixel sensor that has a f/1.7 aperture, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, 5-megapixel macro camera and a 2-megapixel depth camera.
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 processor: The mid-range SD 765 processor is pretty powerful for what it is while also being a 5G-enabled chip. That tried-and-tested processor will be paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
  • 5000mAh battery: The phone has a pretty big 5000mAh battery inside of it which should guarantee all-day use. Fast charging is a little on the slow side though, coming in at just 20W.

We’ve already talked about the Motorola Razr 5G before, but here’s a quick rundown on what you can expect from the second-generation foldable from Motorola:

  • Iconic Razr design: anyone who grew up in 2000’s will instantly recognize the design of the Razr, thanks to its prominent chin.
  • More solid hinge: the hinge has been tweaked to give the phone even better durability, with Motorola promising at least 200,000 folds, a number so high that it’s unlikely anyone will be able to hit it while using it.
  • Folding design: the main draw here is the foldable design of the phone that makes it incredibly compact to use, utilizing a flexible display.
  • Big secondary display on the outside: one of the things we really like about the Razr 5G is the large, 2.7-inch outer display that you can use for a lot of things, including answering notifications and messages without having to open the main display.
  • 5G: just like its less expensive brother, the Razr 5G will come with 5G capabilities.

The Razr 5G comes in at a mouth-watering Php 72,990 when it lands in December, which isn’t at all surprising for what you’re getting.

What is surprising is the Moto 5 5G Plus pricing: the phone will be priced at Php 16,990 when it hits stores. That’s a solid price tag for what it offers, and conveniently undercuts the sticker price of OnePlus’ Nord, which was originally priced at Php 21,990. The delayed launching in December though is a bummer, but good things come to those who wait, we guess.
