Reasons why we think that the Moto G 5G Plus is still solid for gaming

Due to its strong specs at just PHP 16,995 pesos, we said in February that the Moto G 5G Plus is a solid choice for those who are looking to buy their first 5G-ready smartphone.

In particular, its 5G connectivity is legit, the design is neat, the screen is smooth and immersive, the wide selfie cam is fun to use, and its overall specs are now and future-ready.

Fast-forward to April of 2021, we think that our claims are still valid. This device still has some of the very best specs for the price.

AND in this video, we will share with you why we think that it is one of the best for gaming in its class as well.

Reasons why we think that the Moto G 5G Plus is still solid for gaming:

1. The smooth and immersive large display The Moto G 5G Plus is a device equipped with a large 6.7-inch LCD (LTPS) CinemaVision display with a 90Hz refresh rate, HDR10 support, and FHD+ 2520 x 1080 resolution. 

It also has a pair of holes on the upper-left portion of the display for the two selfie cameras and slim bezels to make your viewing experience more immersive.

This means that the display of this phone is crisp, colorful, and large enough to let you enjoy the games you are playing

Apart from making UI animations more fluid and make scrolling through the app drawer, images, and web pages smoother, the gaming experience on supported games will be better.

While in-game, its users will be able to enjoy smoother graphics with finer details and less lag.

The game felt more responsive as well.

Oh, by the way, it also has a decent-sounding single speaker at the bottom and a 3.5mm headphone slot, a Smart PA amp, and a pair of microphones to complete the experience.

2. Pretty good processing performanceInside, the Moto G 5G Plus is equipped with the 2.4GHz 7nm EUV Snapdragon 765 octa-core processor paired with Adreno 620 GPU.

It also has 
8GB LPDDR4X and 128GB UFS 2.1 expandable storage via microSD slot.

Based on recent benchmarks, Motorola G 5G Plus is among the speediest phones for the price. It clocked 367K at AnTuTu V9, 1,875 Multi-Core Score at Geekbench, and an overall score of 1,471 at 3DMark Wild Life.

These scores translate to good actual performance.

In particular, this phone runs most of the mobile games we play with ease. NBA 2K20 at max settings is super-smooth. PUBG Mobile works very well at HD settings with High Frame Rate, Anti-aliasing, and Shadows.

High graphics with HFR mode at Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, no problem.

For Genshin Impact, we suggest that you customize the settings for smoother gameplay. But, it is also playable at max settings with a few drops.

Overall, this handset can game and it is one of the most capable for the price.

Thermals are also impressive. It doesn't get uncomfortably hot even after playing for a few hours while your data or WiFi is turned on.

3. Massive battery capacity with fast charging The Moto G 5G Plus loads with a 5,000mAh large battery. In our test, this can last for more than a day on a single charge and it has a USB-C 20W TurboPower charger that can charge the device from 0 to 35 percent in 30 minutes. Overall charging time is a little over 2 hours.

15 minutes of NBA 2K20 gameplay with the speaker on and max brightness only drained 6 percent of juice.

If WiFi or 4G LTE is on, it will drain a bit faster. In our experience, it can last around 6 to 8 hours of straight gaming.

4. Stable WiFi and 5G connectivityThe Moto G 5G Plus has dual-band WiFi at 2.4GHz for a longer range and 5GHz for a faster shorter range as well as support for standalone and non-standalone 5G.

In our experience, as long as your network provider and data plans are good, its WiFi connectivity is stable. It simply works well.

If there's 5G in your area, you will be able to enjoy faster speeds, better reliability, and lower latency for faster online game loading speed and less lag.

If there's no 5G yet in your area, it'll automatically access 4G or 3G instead.

5. Game time Apart from its near stock-like and lightweight operating system, the Moto G 5G Plus has the Game Time function to block notifications and calls for uninterrupted gaming.

It can also disable adaptive brightness while you are gaming and enjoy audio enhancements for games.

And yes, by clicking the game button on the left side of your screen, you can easily access the screenshot button.
