If you’re on the hunt for a new phone, but you’re looking to save shedloads of money, a great deal on the already-cheap Moto G5 is what you need.
Flubit is selling the Motorola Moto G5 (16GB) for a bargain price of just £142.71, which is far below the usual R.R.P of £169.99. Not bad, considering the phone only launched a few months ago.
Most mainstream retailers that we checked (e.g. Currys, John Lewis) are selling the device for £159. We also found it on sale at Laptops Direct for £149. But Flubit is offering the cheapest pricing by far.
Given the fact that this phone is already excellent value for money at the full price, such a major discount so soon after launch make this an incredible offer.
While we haven’t used Flubit before, the website has a solid 7.8/10 score on Trustpilot UK, based on 2,755 customer reviews.
The Moto G5 is the latest in a long series of highly affordable – and excellent put-together – smartphones.
As with previous generations, the Moto G5 crams in loads of great tech for a very cheap price. For instance, you get a 5-inch Full HD display, a 1.4GHz processor with eight cores, and 2GB of RAM.
There’s also 16GB of storage, a 2,800mAh, and a 13-megapixel camera. And it all runs on Google’s latest Android 7.0 Nougat operating system.
We gave the Motorola Moto G5 a very respectable 4.5/5 score in our review, praising the handset’s incredible value for money, good performance, and “jazzed-up design” – so says Mobile Editor Max Parker.
Here’s our verdict, as written based on the original £169 review price:
“If you find the Moto G4 at the same price as the Moto G5 or cheaper, there’s a very good argument for buying the older model unless you prefer the design of the new model. The screen’s bigger, the processor a little faster and the camera similar in terms of image quality.”
“However, assuming the Moto G5 will nudge the G4 off many shelves, this phone is still very easy to recommend. And it’ll be supported longer than the Moto G4, which is definitely worth considering.”
“The lingering issue is that any progress here is subjective. A more premium look and feel will be welcomed by many and using a smaller but still 1080p screen may appeal to those who found the Moto G4 that bit too big. It’s not a better phone than the Moto G4, but it’s still one of the best phones at under £200.”
“As much as we complain about the Moto G series treading water, that this is still a great buy is what matters most.”
