Moto G5 plus - Battery Drain following recent software update

I recently installed the latest software update for my Moto g5Plus…Android version 8.1.0, The battery is running down quickly following this upgrade. What’s the fix?

We saw numerous reports of this issue with the update first became available. Generally, what we’ve found is that the phone takes a few days to “settle in” to the update and then battery usage generally gets back to normal.


I just installed it last week so I’ll give it a few days and see what transpires. I’ve read some other forums about rebooting, etc, to no avail. Thank you for your timely response.
