Re: Nougat update news for ALL G4

2018-04-18, 8:22 AM

The Moto G5 and G5 Plus will be updated to Orea shortly after the G6 line is announced in Brazil tomorrow. My wife has one and she gets regular security updates and irs a really good phone.

 

Motorola has a new president so things should be getting better. My loyalty is to Motorola as a customer, not Lenovo.  Things will be changing at Motorola with the new president.  My problem is with the G4 Play - it was made with older technology (no 5 ghz wifi) and was NEVER taken seriously by the company.

Good luck with that - you are aware of a similar thread to this regarding G5 and Oreo? The similarities are uncanny.

That doesn't make any sense though, Motorola doesn't exist anymore, it's all Lenovo and Lenovo is where your money is going to...

Well its apparent I'm too old for this group. There is definatly a generation gap in thinking. So long.

Alpha Dog - I'll see you in the G5 forums next month.

My moto g4 play had a software update the other day, I believe just security updates, and it shut off part way thru and never came back on. I did everything I could think of for it to turn on but it bit the dust. Gave up the ghost. Dead as a doornail. You get the point. ?

Question, did Amazon make you send the phone back?  I'm thinking I might have to do this here in the U.S. because I've been waiting for the updates,  and I've already had to return to Motorola once for replacement because of screen issues and now my GPS and battery are acting up.

I returned mine to Amazon. I didn't even ask for a refund/return - they just offered it when I explained the Nougat situation, hoping they could find out when the update was coming. As is usual with Amazon UK, they refunded me in full up front, giving me 30 days to return my G4 Play to them. That was actually my second return as I had to return my original G4 Play for replacement after 2 weeks due to a dodgy screen and speaker.

Maybe a user replaceable battery, but MOTO/Lenovo doesn't sell them so you're relegated to 3rd party providers. Also, I haven't done it but apparently the GPS issues can be fixed by opening the phone and re-seating the antenna wire.

What did you say to them? I'm hoping I could say something to Amazon US to get a refund from them even though I'm out of warranty by 3 months.
