After the oreo update on my moto g5 plus it was working wonderful but in November when i got the October security patch the phone is behaving abnormally. The main problem is with the touch screen. Sometimes the screen does not respond and sometimes it hangs a lot while using. I thought that it might be a technical issue and tried to reset my phone (both hard and soft reset) but nothing changed and the problem still exists. I am sure that this is due to some software issues. I hope that the next security patch will resolve the issue and make the phone more stable.

I was expecting to see the support for Airtel VoLTE after the Oreo update but the company didn't provide any such support. Even after the security patches of October and December the Airtel VoLTE is not supported in Motorola Moto G5 Plus. It is really disgusting!I am so frustrated with this company that neither will i buy it's products nor will suggest any one to buy Motorola products! At the time when other companies are providing the Pie(9.0) update in their two years old phone(Mi A1) the Motorola company provides Oreo (8.1) update in their phones and that too wreck the performance of the phone! The screen of the phone sometimes responds abnormally, the Wi-Fi doesn't work, the addition of 4g+ mode doesn't allow the internet to be stable.
I am just saving my money to buy a new phone and will destroy my moto g5 plus. I am so much frustrated with this company and this phone!

I updated to Oreo 8.1 in my g5+, but my battery problem remains. My battery lasts for 12 to 14 hrs. max. I don't know which app is consuming my battery and there is no way I can detect the culprit apps running in background. Motorola never helps. They will charge RS.300/- for inspection but never gives guarantee that their actions / software reinstall will solve the problem.

Now I see this has been solved. I can't say that for my Moto G5! I've replaced the phone by now, because security matters to me. Being on Android 7.0 still, November 2017 security patch.
Now someone gonna tell me an update is coming, but I won't hold my breath, nor buy a Lenovo or Moto phone ever again.
