According to Motorola US and Indian official websites
This product will no longer receive security updates.
This device will remain on Android 8.1 (Oreo)
Really disappointed with the update policy of Motorola!
Still no February patch in Finland! This is probably the last update for this phone but wtf Lenovo/Motorola?! It's almost May already!
Moto g4 got 8.1. We deserve 9.0 please..... One and a half years after release and we were out of the update line..... Not fair
its officially confirmed on moto website that this device will no longer recieve any security updates also

Anonymous, 28 Mar 2019Mine is on Oreo 8.1 with the Februrary 2019 security update.Where are you from and when did you get this newest update?

Moto G5 Plus user, 20 Mar 2019Have been using this device (Indian version) for almost 2 years now. Thought since it's a stoc... moreAbsolutely correct man. It has IMX 362 (used in Google Pixel 2 XL) but becoz of shitty implementation and third class software processing most of the images turn out to be blurry and unusable. And don't ask about night images. Within 1 yr and 3 months this camera has turned from best in class to worst(maybe due to updates). I had very high hopes from Motorola, all in vain.
And updates are very bad. Still on Dec '18 security patch. I think s/w support is almost over now. I have asked Motorola about it, but they are silent on Insta and Twitter. I have to search for a better smartphone now I guess.
LENOVO ruined Motorola
(I hope somebody from Motorola or Lenovo understand this or else their end is very near.)
Have been using this device (Indian version) for almost 2 years now. Thought since it's a stock Android phone, and Motorola promised updates, there would be nothing to worry about.
But no, Motorola had other plans. No updates on time, almost ditched Oreo for this phone and when they did provide updates, they're full of bugs. No Night Mode, poor camera, 4GB + 32GB when every other manufacturer provides 4GB + 64GB at this price point.
And on top of it, every successor has the only thing new, it's name, see Moto G7 for example. Same old stuff. No innovation, no nothing.
This was my third and last Moto phone if they don't get their $hit together. Not getting my hopes up though.
LENOVO RUINED MOTOROLA.
I have been using Moto G5 Plus from September 2017. The phone is good but it's internet connectivity is very poor especially WiFi. Within one year I had to reset my phone 4 times. I was using lenovo before that and that too has same issue.
India variant of this device XT1685 (dual-sim 4G) does not support band 41 which is listed here incorrectly. Referring to official Motorola India website, this device only supports bands 1,3,5,8,40 (no band 41).
For me it connects to Vodafone 4G but without any carrier aggregation and hence the data speed is very slow.
