K8, K8 Note and Plus confirmed getting Oreo update.

The funniest part being it would release when Android P gets a stable version.

Hi Lenovo Team/ Moto Team,

Are you really kidding us ? giving Oreo upgrade after a year of purchase ?

Then what's the use of giving Stock android by ditching your VibeUI. you were promised us to get earlier updates so is this supposed to be called as Earlier update here ? Why are you conned us saying regular updates and Soon upgrades ?

 

We need a Clarification as follows:

 

1. are you willing to give monthly security patches or not ?

2. So for the phone you will give a single major OS upgrade only and that too after a year ?

3. What about lots of bugs that you are not fixed yet ? 

 

Please respond us to know what is happening here?

I am also pissed with this. I don't know if they are going to hire developers first and then start the work next year.

Exactly same questions are on my mind. By all these moves, Lenovo /moto service providers proved that they can't be improved in future. After 1 year they're setting their update release. Also monthly security patches are so irregular. Though it's not sure also. Then what the meaning of nonsense talking at the release of Lenovo k8 note "Lenovo's 1st "stock android" experience" blah...Blah...Blah....

You(Lenovo/Moto) all are so much losers that every movement proves that..... noone can't believe you after these nonsense behaviors.....You guys don't shout because within 1 year(July 2018) most of the smartphones will get oreo....

Very wrost service Lenovo,

 

As you provide stock Android than you don't have any problem to provide Android o update so why giving update in next year.

 

I think as per your policy you provide only one Android next level update in your all smart phones.so you give update at nexy year july'18 and than tell when Android p lonch as " we provide only one update and Android o giving you at july'18 no now not possible to provide Android p"

Very bad service giving you

Lenovo Once Again proved that they are not trustworthy in providing these updates even when they have stock android. Even my Grandma who is not a developer can provide Oreo update before lazy developers of lenovo. I think they are not paid well or they hire those developers who skipped lot of classes. Even Andy the Admin here doesn't have any idea. He reads news websites and give us the same information.

Ha ha :smileylol:
Lenovo is kidding in every aspect of the device. Its all marketing strategy (flooding eye catchy specifications).

 

1. Dual camera: :smileylol: you better know the truth

 

2. SoC: Powerful but poor energy efficiency

 

3. Stock android: What's the reason for providing stock android if you guys can't provide regular updates? Android O update? You'll get next year, and I have doubt, whether I can tollarate with this dumb till then. And if they decide to provide that sooner than planned, it will be again full of bugs, just like all new phones released by Lenovo.
They aren't releasing the official firmware yet. I have the official firmwares of all phones I used till date (Nokia s40, Nokia Symbian, Samsung, MI) expect this one.

 

4. Features: Lenovo dumped the UI, good attempt. But lacking some basic features: Blue light filter (aka night mode), Miracast support, font, theme etc.

 

5. Price: I bought this one in first flash sell by ₹14K. During Amazon's offer period, the effective price is ₹10K. I fell like cheated.

 

6. Issues and bugs: Endless list

 

When Xiaomi was new to mobile phone business in Indian market, no one had trust on them. Gradually they were able to gain the trust. Now just look at the sells figure of Xiaomi in India. They are excellent in the basic three aspects: marketing, cheap hardware, customer support. As soon as K8 Note was announced, they also announced Nougat for RN4, provided the update asap, finally moved from flash sell to open sell. Not only that, they released a stock android model with Android One (ota directly from Google).

On the other side, being an old trustworthy brand, Lenovo is loosing that trust slowly in Indian market. People are buying this with great expectations (including me) from Lenovo, but after facing so many issues the expectation is converting into frustration.

Wake up Lenovo, you must keep your customers happy, otherwise in long term, you'll be another 'Nokia': no 1 smartphone maker to struggling in market.

Yep! You're right from the all points. They definitely faded out from very soon because of this reason. Poor Lenovo that never change! Hopefully it was my last phone and i never came back again for Lenovo. It's time to say goodbye to Lenovo india.

Recently Lenovo has updated the page confirms Android o from July 2018.

This is really unacceptable news.

We have to wait for 10 months. That time Google may release Android P .

Please support this concern and i request Lenovo and team to make this ROM available earlier as possible.

Thanks LenoMoto
