I've just got the Android security patch level November- 2017.
Dk4k, 03 Feb 2018It restarts it is just me or someone else also has this problem ?I too have this problem sometimes I am on a call and it just restarts
The battery life was good. The screen was good. The colours were washed out. It was snappy and smooth. The only thing I couldn't stand was Googles's desperation to have my phone phone contacts. There was no option to store to SIM or phone memory - only Gmail!
This drives me crazy. I sent the phone back.
AnonD-695879, 25 Oct 2017Its a raw os because it is close to stock android. If you want all the features that you could... moreItÂ‘s quite funny as I had a samsung a3 and it had all and some too but couldnÂ‘t find a file manager
Wish they made them pocketable again. It would be so much nicer with a 4'' screen
What a disappointment after my G3! A lemon in every way. Terrible battery life even with no apps running, no location, etc. it drains 20% sleeping overnight. Terrible camera with slooow response after tapping the shutter button... when it doesn't freeze and say "camera error". It dumped random contacts one day, uninstalled the micro SD twice, losing pictures and apps. Everything is slow and jerky in processing. Almost have to destroy the back to pry it off. I sold mine on Craigslist and got an LG X Power 2 which has an amazing battery and actually functions without crashing. Apparently, there is a G5S coming out now to try to solve some of the many, many flaws. Thanks for destroying the Moto G, Lenovo!
AnonD-681239, 23 Jan 2018Moto g5 or lenovo k8 plus.K8 definitively
what is current android security patch level on this phone in which country?
Anyone got Oreo 8 update. It's taking too long time. Motorola was among the first to rollout a new updates. What's happening?
I'm sorry to say but mine Moto G5 xt1676 with 3gb rom, which I bought 10 days ago, is very disappointing in terms of some things that I took for granted in my recent phone(Lenovo S1 lite).
1. Cast. I can't cast on my smart TV screen from G5 cause it needs Chromecast to buy (no wireless cast without). S1 lite had that option and it worked perfectly.
2. No compass???
3. No light vibration in calls when other party answers.
4. No led notification for messages or mail...
5. On mobile data I can't turn off 2G data.
6. Percentage of battery on status bar is practically invisible (bought app from Google play but it shows on left side of screen)
7. In lack of light camera very very very bad.
8. Automatic brightness is disaster.
Anonymous, 10 Dec 2017About the heating issue, I had same problem for first month,and then it stopped. Just give it ... moreHeating is relative, when compare galaxy y with no GPU, g5 consider a bit heat, but g5 has GPU so is normal heat
My Moto G5 is amazing! Battery last me almost 2 days, its super fast and worth the price. No issues at all since it got it and I really love this phone. I got the 2GB RAM version with 32GB of memory. The camera is fast and great quality pictures, lots of space (even after installing Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Modern Combat) plus all the other apps I use on a daily basis (Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, WorldStar, and more). I have nothing but good things with this phone and I have about a week with it. By the way, I have no over heating at all!
AnonD-720552, 05 Dec 2017i bought this phone 3 months ago
its suffering from heat i dont know why
what ever i use i... moreHeating is most likely caused by high CPU activity. To check this, go to device help app, choose "fix", choose "device information". Normally, device activity should stay below 10% unless you are running heavy games etc.
I had this issue some time ago. I cleared the system cache partition, monitored app power dissipation (settings - battery) and removed couple of suspicious apps (including 3rd party antivirus apps) and did a soft reset (removing battery for few seconds does the same). Check a post on Lenovo/Moto forums by searching for "high CPU activity". These helped for me, no issues after that.
