How does a phone behave after the update (in comparison with Nougat)? Do you find it smoother - less laggy or faster? Btw, is it possible to enable dark theme somewhere in Settings? I was unable to find it in soak test builds.

I just updated it and it's been 10mins into update and I'm officially lovingggggggg it

The UI, the notification controls and theme all is great. As u can see the quick setting panel also have dark theme...however idk if its daytime auto switching or is there any option to enable it but right now it's enabled and I'm happy to find this option.
I'll post more as i evaluate more

Did you manage to save OTA to make it flashable?

Some new actions have been added to the Moto Actions App.
There isn't any dark theme option however the quicksettings panel in notification bar changes to dark colour based on wallpaper's colour.

Then i guess its the same things that have been included in the final release.
The phone is now more responsive even the fingerprint scanner is faster than before (i loved this one especially)
And the ui is smooth and crisp and has less lag (no lag encountered so far)

Never mind. Hopefully, someone another will capture the OTA.

Could you test an unlock animation with any app opened (like Settings, Dialer etc.) and animation of notification bar pulldown with YouTube full screen playback in the background, please? I remember, I encountered lag especially there with latest Oreo soak test build. Hopefully it's better optimized now.

Yes tested no lag whatsoever:
1) unlock with youyube playing
2) chrome with 56-70 tabs opened and still working smooth
3)music player and oine radio streaming and then unlocking without lag

I think the may lag if we run heavy games on it but i dont have any so i can't tell.... As far as normal-heavy usage the phone is working better than before thats for sure.
