Moto G5 Plus First Look: What no other phone has (at this price)

As a precursor to our Moto G5 Plus Review, the following is an up-close look at the features that this smartphone has that no other phone has - in this price range.

Forget whatever preconceived notion you might have about computer games. There are no fancy graphics here, not even 8-bit ones. There are no joysticks or gamepads either.
