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.

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!

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.

Now days export to sim not suport, just sync to gmail and will appear on ypue next Android
It is really disappointing that Video calling option is missing in G5 and user is dependant on third party apps, I'm hoping you guys would add this feature in upcoming patch soon

Those who's pay less but expect more, keep changing phones. They never be satisfied. I like the simple version of Android. Just what you need fort everyday use.
