When it comes to monthly security updates, Motorola does a terrible job. It has been lagging in this department way behind all other smartphone manufacturers. In fact, some time last year the company officially declared that ‘it might not be able to deliver every monthly patch Google delivers’. Therefore, we were taken aback when the company rolled out the first software update to the newly launched Moto G5 Plus.
Yes, you heard it right. The hardly one month old baby of Motorola has already received its very first software update which is rolling out to Moto G5 Plus units in Brazil.
Arriving as build number NPN25.137-33, the new update fixes few bugs and brings stability improvements to Moto G5 Plus. But most importantly, once installed, the software update improves audio quality of a recording video on the device.
Rolling out in Brazil as an OTA update, you might want to know if Moto G5 Plus devices in your region are also eligible for the update or not. In that case, head to Settings > About device > System updates. As the file size of the software update is 280.7MB, it is advisable to charge your Motorola phone sufficiently before hitting the download button and get connected to a WiFi network for uninterrupted installation.
Lenovo released the premium Moto G5 Plus along side Moto 5 last month in Barcelona during the Mobile World Congress. The first in the Moto G series to flaunt an all-metal body, the Moto G5 Plus sports a 5.2-inch Full-HD display. Powered by 2.0GHz Snapdragon 625 processor, the phone rocks Android 7.0 Nougat. It comes in two storage options- 2GB RAM/32GB ROM and 4GB RAM / 64GB ROM. The cameras on board are of 12MP and 5MP resolution for back and front respectively. All these is kept charged via 3,000mAh battery. The phone also has a fingerprint scanner.
