I have also faced the same situation. I have been regularly keeping watch of the ram usage these days and have found that ' Android OS' is increasingly using ram day by day. I felt it was a problem with my device alone, but now after seeing this thread, I realize this is a fault with the device, Moto g5 plus.

 

Developers at Motorola, see to it that, they rectify this with an update as soon as possible. We shed extra money for this device, even though it costs considerably higher than similar spec phones, just because of its reliablity. Please release an update  to rectify this issue.

Same problem here. Is there any solution?

 

Factory reset solved it only for two days. Now Android-OS starts with 1,2GB after reboot and needs about a day to use nearly 2,8GB :(

The automatic night mode seams to cause the high ram usage... There were no lags since deactivating...

This solution worked like a charm for.me.

This Night mode is the real culprit

I disabled the System UI Tuner completely and Android OS memory consumtion came back to normal from 2.7 Gb to .8 Gb

Thanks for the solution,
