Got Oreo here in the great Northwest today as well. G5+ purchased directly from retail (Best Buy) July 2017. On Tracfone AT&T.

I'm in Michigan and got Oreo a few days ago. It wasn't ota, I checked for updates and was shocked to get the upgrade. My phone is the G5Plus, my software channel is cc (consumer cellular).

Why do you say it's not OTA?  Just because you checked before the phone had a chance to download it?

Moto G5+ (Retus) version (4gb/64gb):

 

I have received the notification that new system software is available for download.

 

Based on the feedback so far from many people in various countries, I am reluctant to update the phone, considering everything more or less works right now on Android 7. 

 

Could Retus version owners please provide feedback on your experience so far with the new software. And/or wait a few days and please report back if the update has caused problems.

No issues thus far. Yes, you will have to get used to a 'new look' and layout as well as make a couple tweaks to things such as notifications and the battery saver notification especially. Other than that, good to go!

Just wanted to let the forum know how the update was obtained. Maybe someone else can manually check and get it. Didn't mean to piss you off!

@RShattler
Heads up bro, I recently checked last week and it was not there, looks like they finally released on Nov 1st 2018 through OTA for everyone. I am glad that I read your message here today after ignoring many over the past few days with huge disappointment on Moto. Just started Downloading let us see how it goes.

 

Edit: I am also from Michigan and use Ultra Mobile which operates on TMobile, so it is not through the carrier. I strongly believe it is just OTA but no notification to customers. Suggest the US to just check manually

I checked my Moto g5+ 2/32 retus today. I was pleasantly surprised that Oreo was available to download! I downloaded and successfully installed it. My cell provider is prepaid Tracfone AT&T (GSM) service. The phone is used in the 805 area code of the California Central Coast. It's an unlocked phone purchased in Dec. 2018 from Costco.

 

My G5+ is now updated to Android version 8.1.0.

Current version: OPS28.85-17.

Security patch level: Sept. 1, 2018.

 

Will try it out to see what's new after I go to the polls to VOTE!
