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.
Great phone overall.
Only bugging cons are 32-bit OS and lack of Camera 2API(I know it can be enabled via ADB but it should have been out of the box) and slow updates of Motorola.

Anonymous, 23 Dec 2018Facing a lot of network issues since Oreo update.can confirm, also having network issues since the update..
Got this phone a year ago. It has been perfect in every way. The camera is poor in low light situations. Other than that the phone is fast and I love all the features and aps. It stomps my wife's iPhone 7 big time. Great phone by Motorola!!
Anonymous, 09 Dec 2018It's a good phone for the price, but Motorola should be more diligent into attend common issue... moreThey need to listen to the Moto Lenovo community just like one plus and xiaomi (sometime) does
Dear Motorola Lenovo
pls add dual VoLTE support, MI A1 got update with dual volte, both has same processor snapdragon 625
It's a good phone for the price, but Motorola should be more diligent into attend common issues detected by the public and bringing up security patches to their device in a critical way.
It's a good phone looks are not the killer performance quite good camera average. But try the feature that allows you to cancel navigation buttons using fingerprint pad to mine back and forth etc. Screen size experience improves a lot. Did it after 16 months of standard use. With this and Oreo it looks like a new device! Shame Motorola lost fast updates. Cuz the phone it's awesome

Custom roms are not available in real me but in asus you can install it.Other than that moto is on 32 bit if you want to explore the camera then better install other roms.Moto is ruined by Lenovo
