Re: Nougat update news for ALL G4

This may be an unpopular opinion, but...

 

If 7.0 has bugs that were swatted by the 7.1.1 update, I would rather Lenovo/Moto/Verizon wait and bring the 7.1.1 update to the G4 Play instead. (I have the VZW prepaid variant of the G4 Play, XT1609.)

 

I have no problems with 6.0.1 Marshmallow...and can hang in there as opposed to introducing major bugs with the 7.0 Nougat version.

 

IIRC, Verizon/Motorola skipped 5.0 altogether in favor of 5.0.1 on the prepaid Moto G (XT1028), though that was more in line with fixing the SSL problem.

 

I don't know how quickly Verizon will put out the Nougat update on the G4 Play prepaid, but I'm willing to wait a while if it's 7.1.1 fixing 7.0 bugs.


That's what I've thought all along. MM has beef been rock solid for me and if there is a chance that 7.1.1 will be out in a few months then why not wait.

Android 7.1.1 brings some improvements and fixes, but most of them are directed to Pixel phones. For the rest it's not a big difference between 7.0 and 7.1

Moved post to existing thread. Please use existing threads instead of creating new ones. 

 

Searching first would also show this has been asked many times. 

 

The Amazon Prime variant is likely to get updated, but this will also be up to Amazon. Nothing specific has been said either way.

I read up to page 6 and my eyes were drooping.

So came to the end to ask :-

 

........Is Nougat really worth upgrading to then?

Sorry if this was covered b/4, but it was getting boring with all the arguing  :smileyvery-happy:

MotoBob, so far nougat is only available in India for the Moto G family, so we don't have a choice right now :) but when it does come out I think it will be a good idea to upgrade. There will always be a vocal dissatisfied minority as there is no reason for people to come here to say the update works fine for them.

It's definitely true that few come to the forum to say, "this is working great." I have been using Android 7.0 on my Nexus 6 since last year when I joined their beta program. I have been very  happy with it, and look forward to seeing how it works on the G4.

Unfortunately forum threads on occasion have a habit of doing that...

 

Perhaps best to read up on what nougat can offer over marshmallow, and see if any of that really interests you. One other addition is the update to the November 2016 security patch included with the latest build, which is important, but I imagine if none of 7.0 interests you right now, you could hold off on upgrading until more updates roll out to fix bugs and the OS matures. You can see from these forums alone the headaches caused by nougat 7.0 (and this is just India, wait till the rest of the world gets it!)

 

I agree with you and other posters that the latest software is best to have (even a .0 version) and that few people that are happy have reason to visit forums, just that this nougat version has issues which don't consistently appear easy to fix if you have them!
