Yes, and everyone in the US is waiting as well. Updates come out in phases. That's the way it is. Get over it.

My $800 S7 Edge has 6.01 ... My $600 Note 5 has 6.0.1. My grandson's LG G5 has 6.0.1. Most phones are running Marshmallow or LOWER. So would everyone stop taking it as a personal affront that they haven't yet received Nougat.

 

And...given the issues people have posted here in the forum WITH the upgrade, and given that i'm not a masochist, I'd rather wait until the bugs are worked out of an OS before inflicting it on my devices.

Bloody hell, why would you need 1.5k worth of phones?

Re: Nougat update news for ALL G4

Maybe finally got tired of defending Motorola and so bought them instead thinking he'll get Nougat because that's all that matters in a phone, the price directly correlates to likelyhood of getting Android updates. But was turned out he got duped 4 times now that he's back to defending Motorola? Not sure

 

I mean this is solid evidence that no phone has Nougat, so why are we crying for being lied to about false release time framesand empty promises with no explanations? *shrug*

 

(nevermind that Nougat *IS* actually already released for LG G5 and Samsung S7 Edge already.. phones which are much more customized than the barebones Moto G4 is.

 

LG G5 Nougat available as of late December 2016: http://www.androidcentral.com/lg-g5-owners-hows-nougat-update-treating-you

 

Samsung S7 Nougat available as of last month in some parts, with more coming every week: http://www.gsmarena.com/nougat_rolls_out_for_unlocked_samsung_galaxy_s7_vodafone_uk__january_23-news-22836.php

 

And Samsung Note 5 and Galaxy S6 (phones much older and heavier customized than Moto G4) getting it in first half of 2017: http://www.droid-life.com/2017/01/19/nougat-update-coming-galaxy-s6-line-galaxy-note-5-first-half-2017/

 

At least Samsung and LG are competent enough to relase their updates in countries that aren't considered third world by many standards because they don't think testing beta releases on all population in a county is standard practice. Moto G4 Nougat is out in the likes of Brasil, India and Argentina, Moto afraid to release bad software to US because they won't be able to get away with half-assing it here like they try to pass off there

I'd rather have a few minor bugs and a quick release schedule than 9 months worth of unpatched bugs and security issues,  security patches should be able to be applied without any changes to drivers or core apps.  There really is no excuse Marshmallow or Nougat aside..  

 

It's laziness and contempt for the end user who is left to ransom by the handset manufacturer as my phone is not a carrier device at all.

The biggest complaint is the security updates, they should of be pushed on a regular basis, i just got a January security update on my other phone and still nothing on the G4 still on july security update.

What dates are the security patches on these phones? 

 

It could be argued that Lenovo's failure to provide timely security updates is rather more important than their failure to provide an updated OS. The latter doesn't leave your phone open to a variety of malware, and by all accounts there's plenty of that around in the Android ecosystem.

Security patches: Nov, Aug, and Dec for those three phones. Yes, security updates are desirable, though the July, 2017 update addressed the major threats that had developed in the first half of the year. Let us also remember that despite exploits that have gotten a lot of press, our Android phones are relatively safe from exploitation if we take reasonable precautions, to wit: not downloading ANYTHING from a source other than the Play Store, and staying off public wifi when possible. If not possible, then using a good app like Lookout  Mobile Security is a fine solution (it is updated regularly).

 

Getting back to OS updates, and the assumption that Moto is particularly unreliable or untrustworthy in this regard, note the announcement published today from phonearena .. It seems my shiny new S7 Edge will not get the "promised" update to Nougat this quarter, and perhaps not in the next either. Why? Because they ran into problems with issues arising from the first wave of updates.

Are you really not reading all the BS over Twitter etc and just not listening to the countless customers complaining on here? Also we're getting told on here to not believe any info from 3rd parties and your using a 3rd party website to put your point across ?

I would feel much safer if my personal data wasn't exposed to some script kiddie stealing it if I make a mistake, just because Moto failed to deliver the apropiate security update in time.

 

Like other people said, if Nougat must be delayed in order to patch bugs, it's annoying but we can live with that. But at least they should push security updates.

 

We wouldn't forgive Microsoft or Apple if they decided to only release security updates twice a year to their desktop systems, even though common sense is enough to keep them safe too... And a smartphone usually contains much more personal information than a regular computer.

And of course because Google don't vet apps in the store like Apple do, there's no chance of a malicious app appearing there is there? Never happened before has it?
