Essentially a sibling to the G5 with an enlarged display, the 6-inch BLU G5 Plus brings back almost all of its 5.5-inch little brother's budget-tier pros and cons. Among these are its middling eight-core 1.6GHz processor , which obviously will not be plugging it into Phonerated's list of the best eight-core models around, 2GB-only RAM , and IMG8322 graphics engine.
Also on board is a 32GB internal storage memory that's coupled with a mere 64GB-only external storage allowance , whereas a good number of competing models with roughly similar specs support 400GB or even 512GB memory cards.
Another disgruntling con is its 1440 x 720 HD+ screen resolution , which taints its otherwise expansive 6-inch 18:9 interface -- learn how the G5 Plus's screen fares versus those of the best large-screen smartphones here.
As for its pros, this Plus edition brings back the G5's 3000mAh lithium-ion battery , which we find more than tolerable, knowing that some of its budget-tier rivals that hit the market around the time of this on-paper review settle for roughly 2500mAh power caps only (Get to know the leading big-battery phones here). Additionally, 3000mAh of raw power also sounds more than sufficient, considering its somewhat undemanding engine.
The G5 Plus's camera setup is identical to that of the plain G5. At the back, it touts a so-so 13-megapixel main camera with a standard LED flash and a Full HD (1920 x 1080) maximum video-recording resolution. Up front, it has an 8-megapixel selfie cam aided by its own dedicated LED flash -- some of its rivals opt for makeshift screen flash functions only. The rest of its pros and cons include double nano SIM card slots, the Android 9.0 Pie ecosystem, and a coating of either, Twilight, Fire Red, Chameleon Blue, or classic Black.
In a nutshell, the G5 Plus serves as a decent choice for budget Android shoppers who are quite battery-cautious and prefer large screens.
