The G line-up from Motorola has been dominating this category of smartphones for quite some time but recently it has faced tough competition from the likes of Xiaomi’s Redmi, Honor, Asus Zenphone and Lenovo itself with its Vibe, K, P, and Zuk series.
Similarly, this time around the Upcoming Moto G5 and Moto G5 plus will have tough competition from Redmi Note 4, Honor 6X and the new budget range of smartphones from Nokia.
