Talking about the display, the Moto G5 Plus sports a 5.2-inch (1920×1080 pixels) display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection from scratches and cracks. On the other hand, the Redmi Note 4 indeed comes with a bigger display flaunting a 5.5-inch Full HD Curved Glass one.
In this subdivision, both the smartphone shares the same processor — Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC 14nm processor with Adreno 506 GPU under the hood. As this chipset is power efficient, both the smartphone will have a good battery life.
Moving on, Moto G5 Plus comes in two variants as we mentioned earlier. It comes with 3GB RAM with 16GB storage version and 4GB RAM with 32GB storage version as well. Having said that, it is expandable via MicroSD card slot up to 128GB.
