On Nokia 5.1 Plus the Android 9 Pie update runs smoothly and is stable with no freezes/reboots so far for us. It is quite polished and the option of gesture-based navigation adds freshness to the experience. There are no deal-breaking bugs/issues.

Battery life has been nearly same to what we had with Oreo. In case you find issues/bugs please share in comments below.
