However, I can say that the software experience offered by Moto phones are far better than Samsung's, or any other custom skin. Stock Android with added features is truly amazing.
Liv, 02 Jul 2018Anyone installed june security patch? If yes, how is battery life? I updated.Battery life is same,only one day of normal to heavy usage.Your A5 2017 is heating on the back fast?

Samsung is slow with updates because of their bloatware UI but has since streamlined it. The irony of both is that with their respective issues with updates most of their devices have above average battery life.
But I do agree with your assessment that Samsung maybe better with updates. The A5 2017 for instance. Being a two year old device and currently receiving a 10-month old OS (Oreo) in most EU markets, having the newer Samsung Experience UX 9.0 plus monthly (I could be wrong. It maybe every other month) security updates makes it slightly better than Moto.
Would you agree to these?

Anonymous, 01 Jul 2018No oreo update in Pakistan confirmed.What Is Pakistani Not Using A5 2017...? Oreo will be released July 6 confirmed....
I got very important questions in getting a mid-range phone: Which company would you put trust on when it comes to quicker/timely updates especially major Android updates & security updates: Samsung or Motorola?
I understand the A5 2017 has started receiving Oreo 8.0 in Europe and the UK? But does this also include the Samsung Experience 8.0, 8.1 or the newer 8.5?
Can anybody tell me if Samsung included electronic or digital image or video stabilization in the camera on the latest software update?
Aidanhol626, 24 Jun 2018I'm having horrible cell standby battery drain since the Oreo update, any ideas on how to fix ... moreI noticed that too after I got oreo. I did a factory reset it, now I am getting more or less the same percentage as the SOT. What's very strange is that now is showing a big usage from the youtube app, even thought I am not using it extensively. I think the battery usage is messed up.
Just got this thing in may, lasted all of June before the internet stopped working altogether
