Appears to be an age difference in here and I'm the minority. I won't post here again until my phone is upgraded.

You did not answer my question. Did you get your update?

Whoa! Logged in after quite a while, sad that you haven't got it yet (I got it mid-Jan), especially considering how keen you have been in the comments to get it. In case you're sitting on the fence about whether to go buy a new phone, here's my take on the G4 Play Nougat update:

 

-  phone is not as laggy as before, but is still hampered by that slow Snapdragon 410 CPU (I'm never getting anything lower than a Snapdragon 600 series before.. I own a Snapdragon 800 phone, and it runs circles around the 410 for CPU intensive tasks)

- the notification shade is the nicest upgrade from Marshmallow (but I believe Oreo and the upcoming Android P make it even better, so might as well get a new phone that gets those versions)

- animations are a bit slicker overall

- the GPS is still terrible (not to mention the lack of a magnetometer/compass in the phone)

- battery life is about the same, even though they claim Nougat improved battery life.

- app shortcuts in the Launcher is a minor nicety; many apps don't support them

- there's no Night Light feature

 

Hope you haven't lost faith in Android altogether. There are still other OEMs doing good (timely updates) and exciting (e.g. Sony's Dynamic Vibration System on the XZ2) stuff with Android.

 

Cheers!

Android is good. Not updated phones are still good, the shame is that there are many security issues around unpatched.

 

About the Sony comment, I thought I never had to answer this: http://gph.to/2GslzEf

So finally got the android 7.0 upgrade. This is on my Moto G4 in the UK retgb. It arrived today. Security patch still 14 months out of date but at least a move in the right direction. Unfortunately unless they update the security patch it's still useless.

Was it 7.0 or 7.11?  And was it for the G4 or G4 Play?

Yep. I was just about to turn my phone off for the last time ro send it back to Amazon when the notification came through. Got upgraded to Nought 7.0 with a 2016 security date.

 

Makes you wonder about all the lying by the Moto staff. Too ridiculous to contemplate.

 

I'm still sending it back as I've bought a new Huawei Mate 10 with Oreo. And I'll never, ever buy anything Lenovo after all this garbage from them.

All gone quiet in here now - I guess everyone has given up ever getting the promised update. Nothing yet for the UK on retgb, at least for me.

Nothing for US Amazon phones. 

 

Motorola employees are now spending most of their time applying for new jobs. 

 

Time for them to jump ship.
