Moto G5 Plus Review: The Best Android Phone Under $300

Each year, the title of “best smartphone under $300” gets harder to snag – and each year, Motorola nails it yet again. The Moto G5 Plus is a worthy successor to its affordable forerunners, with smart software, useful features, and a price tag impossible to ignore. Even in a world of Honor 6Xs and Axon 7 Minis, I still think it’s the best phone under 300 smackers – but will that hold true for you? Find out in MrMobile’s Moto G5 Plus review!
