The Moto G5 Plus boasts a splash proof metal frame design and houses a physical home button on the front which comes embedded with a fingerprint sensor. The button, however, is not clickable and is capacitive in nature. It also supports gestures to go to home screen, open multi-task window or long-press to put the phone on standby. Although both the Moto G5 Plus and Moto G5 appear identical in terms of appearance, there are major differences in terms of specifications.
