(I'm worried that water entering the ports such as the mic, speakers, USB port & headphone jack will damage the phone beyond repair just like what happened to my old Moto G4.
To some they might not bother too much with updates but having no monthly security updates really gets on my nerve and I really think that's important as these updates makes your phone a wee bit more secured + those odd bug fixes, etc.
Yes I do live in the UK but it is not a guarantee i will have excellent network signal everywhere I go. I'm just a bit concerned that theoretically speaking if my network signal is not so great Google Maps might struggle locating me and loading up walking directions or looking for a nearby cafe or ATM whilst i'm in Paris or say Rome during my holiday. Apps such as Google Maps and City Mapper I use on a daily basis and I highly depend on them for their functionality and purpose.

So, ATM i'm choosing between the Xperia XA1 and the Moto G5 Plus.
Average performance so far. Not exciting enough even with richer tech specs. Am facing connectivity issues. Have to turn off / on often. Not a sleek phone at all. Battery seems decent though. Have not tried camera so far. Just shifted from Lumia 730 which was quite good despite lower hardware specs.

Everyday I wash my phone screen with water n then also works fine...coz its splash proof nothing wont happen unless u dip the phone in a water tub...I too agree with u after motor acquired by lenovo...they dont even bother monthly security patch updates
AnonD-569433, 07 May 2017Nope that won't happen Won't happen what? Please elaborate your answer. Would a faster Cat-6 LTE speeds (and a good network signal..if ever) would be sufficient in compensating for having no magnetometer on the G5 Plus?
My other issue is the lack of water resistance (at least once a day a phone can get wet in many ways), slow/old USB port and Moto being known for very slow updates since acquired by Lenovo.

I did not get a definitive answer previously so I would like to ask again one major concern for this phone. Everyday i use Google Maps for walking navigation and to look for nearby shops (or other places of concern) . If it is true the G5 Plus has no magnetometer does this mean that geo-location apps such as Google Maps will be slow to load and locate me unless i live/work in an area with infinite network signal which is almost impossible to experience. Pls kindly confirm & advice please.
Hello, I have received my G5+ today. Everything is running fine except for a bluish tinge when some text is scrolling up/down. When the scrolling stops, text becomes black again.
Anyone else facing this issue? Should I ignore it or ask for a replacement?
Thanks in advance.
AnonD-664259, 06 May 2017Oh really!!! That's awesome!!!!Just check out dhananjay bhosale channel on YouTube u will find all ua answers to ua queries

AnonD-664259, 05 May 2017That's great...can you tell me how to do that.. n just to confirm u r using Android 7.1 in Mot... moreto do that you have to unlock your bootloader and you have to flash TWRP recovery and you have to root your device later you can download official lineage ROM and flash it through TWRP recovery.. good thing is lineage ROM can be used without rooting our mobile (if you want you can enable native root permission)
I never thought of going back to stock ROM after using lineage ROM
AnonD-569433, 05 May 2017Have u installed the custom unofficial rom of lineage os???its a official lineage ROM
