Moto G5 and G5 Plus: Hands-on video and first impressions of Lenovo's new mid-range handsets

Lenovo announced a range of new devices at this week's Mobile World Congress, including the Moto G5 and G5 Plus, its latest mid-range smartphones. The new handsets have some rather thoughtful and intriguing design touches, including some user experience elements that can be controlled through fingerprint gestures, and the motion of the device itself.

Both models have 1080p resolution; on the G5, you'll get a 5-inch display, while the Plus has a 5.2-inch screen. The two versions also differ in other key specs, such as the RAM and storage options available, and their processors: the G5 has a Snapdragon 430 SoC, but the G5 Plus has a slightly more powerful Snapdragon 625. The G5 will be priced from $210 with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage, and the G5 Plus will be available from $229 with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage.

The video below provides a run through of some of the key features of both devices, including some early impressions of the two handsets:
