I currently have the G5 and the Moto Z Play. I have to pick one to keep. I am aware that they will both receive intermittent updates.

Any input? Thanks!

I would look at battery life. How do they compare?
The Z Play will be updated to 7.0 in March. I have no idea about the G5.
Build quality? The Z feels like a brick to me......but I like that. It feels like a solid well built device.
Signal strength between the two would also help me decide.
I am a huge Moto fan boy so just pointing out things that would help me.
GSM Arena has a nice compare tool.
Some things I noticed from the GSM compare.
G5 has 820 processor, Play has 625.
G5 has smaller screen.
G5 has 554 pixel density, compared to 403.
Both have fast USB C charging.
G5 has 60h endurance rating and Play is 100h endurance rating.

Hope this helps.

Does not work with my Roku box. Will not find my device. If this only works with a chromcast stick then this really sucks. Why?
