Motorola once was very quite known for its stock Android like experience and fast updates. Moto G-series phones used to receive latest software updates right next to the Google Nexus line-up. However, Motorola has just been thrown out of the race due to poor software updates. While the devices still get security patch updates every other month, the Android OS upgrade is quite slow. The G7 series is just now receiving Android 10 update, which may very well be the last major upgrade. Followed by the Moto G8 Plus that just received the second Android 10 soak test.
Yes, Motorola finally begins soak test for Moto G8 Plus and may soon come to the regular Moto G8 and other variants. The soak test brings Android 10. The phone was launched last year with Android 9.0 Pie with almost no bloatware and just a couple of stock Motorola apps. The budget segment with Snapdragon 665 coupled with 4 GB of RAM now gets one major upgrade.

The Android 10 update for the Moto G8 plus will bring lots of new features to the table starting with the new navigation gestures, dark mode, enhanced notification management and better battery optimization as well. Previously, Moto G7 and all of its variants already got Android 10 update.
