We've been seeing glimpses of Motorola's G5 handsets for a couple months now, but the firm has finally officially revealed the devices at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Lenovo's G-series has always been about offering the best bang for your buck. While it isn't the cheapest handset offering, it does a good job of getting much-wanted features at a price range that is affordable.
Unfortunately, there really aren't that many surprises when it comes to the specifications, with the exception that the G5 Plus does not offer NFC like previously assumed.
