But I have been checking memory usage... moreThe most i'll be doing is using Google Maps (via GPS only) for 4-5 hours a day, watching BBC news, Youtube (via wifi), emails, weather, occasional Whatsapp call. I'm still RAM management is poor as apps tend to reload.

Anonymous, 24 Apr 2017I've heard that video recorded from moto g5 plus has a lot of background noise, is it true?Yes it is true...Lot of background noise. I read in somewhere that there is been a release of update to fix this issue in Brazil. Not released in India yet.
Temporary solution before update is to download opencamera app. from play store. go in video settings, select audio channel, select mono. This will reduce background noise. But it will also reduce the audio output from the video.
This is not the best solution. But that's the only available one if the background noise is bothering too much. I tried with open camera, but the audio was too low. So right now I am using normal camera app.
I've heard that video recorded from moto g5 plus has a lot of background noise, is it true?
Aashirwad1, 24 Apr 2017The phone gets warm during charging. It's nothing to worry
its normal while turbocharging. 2... moreI own a moto g5+...It took around 1 hr for charging from 60% to 100% with air plane mode...It takes around 30 min to charge from 90% to 100%.... I started charging my phone around 9 am and it took some 1hr 45 min to charge from 24 to 100...which around 11am fully charged and my usage was watching videos on youtube and using fb insta and some web browsing which lasted till 6pm and my battery was around 62%
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2017Hey in ua last post u said that by putting ua phone to airplane mode ua phone charges faster..... moreThe phone gets warm during charging. It's nothing to worry
its normal while turbocharging. 20 to 80 % charge with airplane mode off takes 40 to 45 min.
80% charge goes throughout the day.
Phone charged till 87% at 10 am
Charge is 49 % at 6pm.
Brightness level little more than minimum
Usage was mostly web browsing. Instagram, camera 4 pics,
If you want the fastest charging phone, OnePlus 3t is better.

Anonymous, 24 Apr 2017Hey in ua last post u said that by putting ua phone to airplane mode ua phone charges faster..... more Honestly I haven't recharged from 0 to 100% I charge when the phone is at 20% up to 80% and switch off once in 3 days to increase battery longetivity .I haven't checked with a timer but 20 to 80% it takes around 40 to 45 min.
Though To Answer your question
users who have tested from 0 to 100% have reported full charge in 2 hours. 0 to 30 % takes faster ....Around 20-25 min. 30 to 90% takes around 1 hour more. So charging from 0 to 90% takes around 1 hour 30 min approx. Further 90 to 100 takes more time.
Hope I have answered your question, though not from personal testing.

When u click the pic and swipe to the right, the pic is blurry for a second, and then it is clear,

So to continue
Battery life not the best, but indeed good. Lasts throughout the day, and with fast charging it's great. With Airplane mode battery charging even faster.my charging habits have changed due to this.
Display: not the best, but still great. I feel it does it's job perfectly well. Adaptive brightness setting has some problems. But anyways I never use it and keep brightness low to save battery.
Tried phone in VR. It was very good, does the job for me. Watched movies in VR. Screen door effect is present, but never bothers the experience.
I have 4gb 32 gb variant. But 3 GB Ram actually is sufficient. Since I saw the Ram usage. It has never crossed 2.1 gb. With my kind of usage of 1hour Asphalt , browsing web, YouTube, moderate social networking, camera daily 5-10 pics,1-2 videos editing sometimes on Lightroom ......I feel it's really good. if on a cash crunch u can definitely buy 3 GB variant. But still I have got 4 gb.
Camera is excellent for the price. Outdoor pics are great. Low light, due to lack of OIS a bit blurry. But if u maintain a steady hand it does the job. Camera has got good hardware, software can be better for post processing. May be an update can solve this.but it's not guaranteed.
Fingerprint scanner is just awesome. One button navigation too is great. Sometimes I felt it annoying as swiping left went back to home instead of going back. But that may be my error in swip
Overall the phone doesn't Excel at any particular thing. But still is a great all rounder. I am really happy with my Moto g5 plus
I was thinking of buying OnePlus 3t. I feel that's definitely better phone than Moto g5 plus. But then it comes to pricing. I saved money to buy a laptop.

Build quality: though plastic frame metal back, feels good to hold. Looks are not that great due to bezels.but it's good if not the best
Processor and battery life: very good. It's not the fastest. But in the price bracket it's awesome. Frankly , u won't feel anything slow in day to day use. I play Asphalt for approx 1 hour, browse web ... 20-22 tabs open, watch YouTube videos, moderate WhatsApp FB Instagram user. Never has the phone hung or showed signs of slowing down.
Qualcomm sd625 indeed battery efficient and fast. Battery life is again not the bwst, but
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2017Supported but disabledLED notification supported but it's only for dead battery situations. Other option root phone, but it voids warranty. Personally I would have liked notification light. But I don't miss it. So it's not a deal breaker for me.
