There are No issues & problems with screen quality. It is very bright to see in direct sunlight. there is also Support to View HDR 10+.
Stereo Speaker and Headphone Jack:
In G 5G, Motorola used the traditional Single Speaker System and it is much louder and Equal When Compared with One Fusion+.
Coming to Headphone jack and earphones, The Output from the Headphone Jack is Very Good. The headphones are not present in the Box Due to Competitive pricing. But with some good pair headphones for listening to music and for taking voice calls clearly.
G 5G is Build with a Polycarbonate Frame on the side & Back, On Front of the Device Is Protected With Glass. it provides a good look and feels Premium. There are no issues of creakiness with the build quality. G 5G well built and the bezels are shrunk down to place a 6.7″ LTPS IPS LCD Screen.
Rear Mounted Fingerprint scanner:
G 5G Features an Rear mounted Optical fingerprint sensor which is present on the Bottom Front of the phone. By performance, it is fast and very accurate to recognize the fingerprint of the user.
G 5G has a face unlock feature. It works Nice in Normal Conditions Very Quickly and Securely but in Night Conditions it will work 50% Screen brightness to recognize the user.
My G 5G lasted a Full Working day with heavy usage and at the end of the day, I had 17% of charge left in the phone which is good for a 5000 mAH Battery. We got a 5.4 to 5.6 Hours of Sot ( Screen on time) on using 5G which is good. you will get above 6 hr Battery life if you use Continuously on WiFi. The ideal drain of G 5G is very low. The 20W charging makes a difference and charges the phone in 2.3 Hours which is a Bad For a Midrange Smartphone in 2020.
Android 10 :
Here the G 5G comes with the Android 10. We cannot see Dual apps and other features in this UI of Android 10. The Ui is Very Clean without Un-necessary Apps. In this UI Motorola Has Included their Moto Actions Which is Very Useful for the Users.
By having Stock Android we can Expect 2 years of Android Version Upgrades and 3 years of security updates on Edge Which is Good Thing.
My G 5G managed to do day to day tasks very well. There are no issues and problems with the UI. There are no heating issues with Fusion+. It Feels a bit warm In Outdoor Conditions While Recording 4K Videos and Gaming.

Ram Management is done very well on this G 5G device. it features 4GB ram variant and I did not notice any lags with Device and there is no reloading of apps on this G 5G. The multitasking experience is good.

in G 5G, Out of 64 & 128 GB Storage, we get 110 & 46GB With Google Account Included.
The Call quality on G 5G is outstanding and there are no issues with cellular call quality. We have taken long calls in a day, and the other party doesn’t complain about call quality. The earpiece is present in Top Bezel Which Acts as a Stereo Speaker Too. In G 5G the Calls are very clear through the Loudspeaker.
