Motorola releases an OTA update to the Moto G5 Plus with bug fixes and performance improvements.


Motorola released the Moto G5 and the Moto G5 Plus at the Mobile World Congress last month in Barcelona. This phones were launched with fairly good reviews all over the media with the tag of the phone being an overall package and the perfect contender to be the best mid-range phone of 2017.

Motorola released the Moto G5 Plus in India on March 15 at a prie of Rs. 14,999 and the phone comes with some fairly awesome specifications such as 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.

This phone from Motorola is the successor to the popular Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus which have a pretty good camera and also comprise of decent specs but the thing that didn’t help Motorola is the delay in giving the security updates to its phones. The company went on record to even say that “it might not be able to deliver every monthly patch Google delivers”. This update didnt please the fans of Motorola at all and the company lost trust a

mong its loyal customers. Now, in a turn of events, Motorola has started to release first update to its only about a month old Moto G5 Plus.

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.

This update is rolling out in Brazil as an OTA update but you might want to know if Moto G5 Plus devices in your region are also eligible for the update or not. In that instance, 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.
