However, Motorola is pushing May 2017 security update for the Moto G5 Plus in India, that apparently solves the problem. Motorola also suggests users update the device as soon as they receive the upgrade.
The update only contains May 2017 security patch, and it doesn't bring any new features whatsoever. While this update would have been more exciting if it had brought Nougat 7.1.1, which is already available for few Moto devices.
The update is already rolling out to the users of Moto G5 Plus in India. If you did not receive the update wait for few days or try checking for it manually by heading over to system updates section in the Settings app. Make sure you've at least 50 percent juice left on your phone before updating it.
