Re: Nougat update news for ALL G4

2017-08-10, 2:23 AM

True.  I've moved on from Moto products for now.  I switched from two Moto devices in a row (X Pure and G4 Plus) to an LG G6.  I certainly miss the Moto plain Android experience but LG's latest skin is pretty thin, and much of the LG skin experiene can be disabled.  

 

LG, like Moto, supports CDMA and GSM which is great for travel.  LG is worse than Moto at OS upgrades (they tend to give you the version available at launch, and then the next full Android release initial version, but not any of the intermediate OS updates.  What LG gets right though are frequent security patch updates.

 

With Moto you wait for *any* update, OS intermediate or security.  Moto has an opportunity to improve in this regard.  It would certainly make their brand "stickier".

I will be moving on from Motorola in a few days I will receive my new lg x charge. It comes with Android 7.0!! Can't wait. Looks like all 3 of my Moto's are going to find a place on the shelf and collect dust.

I think the best thing to do at this point is to ditch Motorola all together.

For some unknown and utterly bizzare reason this topic is marked as "Solved" with a click here to see the solution.

 This was posted by someone with the usernname AlphaDog who aparently is a MotoXXPRT whatever the that is.

 

load of bollocks, if you ask me, especialy as it was apparently solved way back on the 28th of December 2016, apparently rolling out in waves from india.

 

They must be some of the slowest waves ever, as there is still no update for the moto G4Play.

 

I purchased the device on the back of Motorolas apparent quick/timely updates,

I was also due to purchase a couple of new laptops from Lenovo, however if they cant manage to release timely security updates, let alone software updates for a little phone, then how can they be trusted with larger items?

 Anyway, laptop order cancelled, will be going elsewhere, and unless motorola can pull its finger out of its proverbial and get things up to date in the next few days, my moto G4 play that was purchased as i follishly beleived it would receive timely updates will be leaving my possesion, sold on to one of those trade in stores, apparently i can get £70 for it, which will then go towards another device ( nokia 5?)

 

Never again will i purchase a motorola device, and likewise never again will i consider lenovo, and i will also try and persuade others that i know ( including a corporate/education sector buyerwho is currently assessing Dell vs Lenovo) to do the same.

I'm angry about these Android updates.  My 1st phone was a Moto E3 w/Android 4.  It got 1 update to version 5 then when 6 came out I was told my phone was to old for thr update.  I do my research ^ bought a Moto G4 Play.  Now it looks like the Pixel will get version 8 before I get version 7.  My wife has an IPhone 5c and she still gets OS updateds.  My next phone will not be an Android.
