The device comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset, Adreno 505 GPU. It will be available in two storage variants i.e. 2GB/16GB and 3GB/32GB. It does not come with the latest android and has Android 8.0 (oreo). Except for the Gyroscope sensor, the device contains all other sensors.

Because it only has a 720p display the device performs well while gaming at highest possible settings, but it could be even better if there was a better chipset available in this device.

One of the main cons of this device is that the back of the phone gets fingerprints easily which does not look good at all.

Moto E5 plus camera:

Moto E5 plus comes with a 5MP front camera along with LED flash and a back camera of 12MP which is 1.25mm pixel size and f2.0 aperture. It has PDAF, autofocus and also has video stabilization. The front camera and back camera both support 1080p videos. The one thing that is not good is that the some of the images showed different sort of colour tint that was not same as it was looking in front of the eyes.

Overall the camera quality of the device was not that bad.

Moto E5 plus price:

At a pricing of Rs 11,999, the phone does not justify the inclusion of this chipset. Overall it is a sturdy device and does feel solid to hold in hand.
