Moto G5s Plus - is it still not released in the UK?

2017-08-31, 11:15 AM

Hi,

It seems Moto G5s Plus (and G5s) has already been released in India, China and perhaps USA? But in the UK there isn't any seller selling it. Not even Motorola's own website offers it for sale. On Amazon it says "pre-sale" but there is no mention when it would be available. Any info on this?

Hi IWantSunshine,

 

The new Moto G5s and Moto G5s Plus have not been released in the UK as of yet. I wish I could provide a definite release date but I don't have that information. You may register on this link to receive updates about it.

 

Regards,

JM

I have been checking Motorola, Amazon and John Lewis everyday to purchase the G5s Plus, and nothing yet, but you can't tell me that Motorola do not know when they are releasing one of their own phones. I can't believe someone at Motorola wakes up one morning as says "you know what, it's a nice sunny day today, I think we will release the G5s this morning". Someone must know the release date!

The G5s is out at £219.00, but not the G5s Plus

A couple of Amazon UK marketplace sellers are offering it. Where's the stock from and are the phones OK for full UK use,  supporting all 4G LTE bands used in the UK : not to mention NFC, which some markets do not have?

Wow, you people are waiting with bated breath

So Brand Moto still command such loyalty an respect

 

btw I come strolling from the E4 Plus & it's been boxed up brand new. One month of trying to figure out how to use it left me perplexed and at my wits end

Am now at the mercy of Motorola to release an update to make it usable

This is the section, https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/MOTO-E-4th-Gen-MOTO-E-4th-Gen/bd-p/Moto_E4_Moto_E4_Plus

I see Motorola / Lenovo so busy in launching new models and see the ground reality that this Motorola is not the Motorola of yore & a Chinese one to boot

I think those phones are from China. I would prefer to buy them from a reputable company in the UK like Amazon, not one of their sellers, seems we just have to wait. Motorola should be careful though, I have looked at other phones in the same price bracket as I think others may have, and a couple are quite good.

Most phones are made in China

What I meant was the ownership - it used to be a US company & since 2014 Lenovo are the brand owners

> priorities, company policy, quality checks ... everything changes

 

All the Apple iphones are made in China, if I am not mistaken - or at least 90%

It's the Apple ownership that matters

 

My wife uses a Honor 6x,

http://www.hihonor.com/uk/products/mobile-phones/honor6x/index.html

with higher specs than listed ^ ., 4 gb ram & 64 gb internal storage

https://www.amazon.in/Honor-6X-Grey-64GB/dp/B01LWZ14Z2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1504358789&sr=8-1&keywords=honor+6x+64gb+grey

 

I made that choice, the set works like charm

It's made by Huawei, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huawei
