Re: Nougat update news for ALL G4

2017-03-30, 21:10 PM
So I took a walk before lunch between meetings and played around with the phone (G4 Plus 4/64) running Nougat. I like it. Battery life has improved materially, app launching still hiccups and lags a little but much less than under Lollipop; the 617 SoC with Nougat feels almost fast-ish or at least adequate-ish. Still more messing around to do when I get home, but early assessment says this was one worth whining and complaining to get. I also have a G4 Play, and hope (a) the Play also gets this or 7.1, and (b) benefits similarly (even better battery life and snappier launches and interactions).

I had it for a longer while and can say that battery usage reports differently but in the end it lasts the same as before.

I've also noticed that in the AIO Toolkit utility Nougat is more efficient with memory usage than was Lollipop.  I'm averaging about 33% less memory usage for the same use profile/app usage, etc.

 

It's been off the charger idle for two hours (running only background apps and notices) and the battery indicator has dropped just 1% (93% to 92%).  Do you think the indicator isn't accurate (i.e., Nougat isn't accurately showing charge remaining compared to Lollipop?).

Today my Moto G4 Play received a security update.  Update went from July 1, 2016 to February 1, 2017.  This is the first update the phone has received since purchase.  Now waiting for Nougat.  :)

Moto G4 Plus (XT1644 - retus)

Current Software: Android 7.0 (NPJ25.93-14)

 

Is Android 7.0 the last version of Android that I can expect for this device from Motorola? Or will Android 7.1 be available in the future?

So Nougat Update will be the last update? Aren't devices supported for two years after release?

FINALLY GOT MINE a few hours ago! My wife and I bought our unlocked G4s at the same time at Costco in Los Angeles last November. We then activated them with TracFone SIM cards and have been really happy with them as phones and as mini-tablets. Strangely, she was upgraded almost a week before I was! Go figure... Anyway, my upgrade to Nougat finally came a few hours ago. So no more waiting.  :smileylol:
