Motorola Moto G5 Plus is currently getting the Android Oreo 8.1 Soaks tests around the globe and the beta update is seeding for the registered users. Now according to the users who have received these Soak tests, the user experience so far is quite good and one of the major highlights reported by a user with his experience on Android Oreo 8.1 Soak test for Moto G5 Plus is an outstanding battery performance with moderate to heavy usage.
Earlier the Moto G5 Plus on Android Nougat usually gets around 4.5 hours of screen on time, with light to moderate usage, and when used heavily it drops below 4 hours. But now you might be able to get around 5 hours of screen on time with heavy usage along with some amount of juice still left which could easily churn out another half an hour.
Obviously battery usage stats are subject to one’s particular usage, but as you can see in the image above, shared by a Moto G5 Plus use; the battery remaining here is 21% with a screen-on-time of 4 hours and 59 minutes, which is after playing the popular online game PUBG for almost 2 hours and 20 minutes, and more than an hour on social media (FB, whatsapp and insta) and also 25 minutes of voice calls all that along with moto specific features also running in the background, which are triggered live when a certain event happens.
Which says one thing that, Motorola took its sweet time with the Oreo 8.1 Update for the Moto G5 line-up and so far the results are positive. And definitely, users should experience an improvement in the battery department for sure.
With the soak tests now spreading wide around in the globe in Brazil, India and in some other regions as well. One should expect the final official stable rollout of Android Oreo 8.1 to arrive before the end of August. Motorola is pretty good with android updates with its flagships, but for a year they’re quite sluggish when it comes to budget phones. And we hope the American tech titan does improve on that front in the coming years.
