Looks like the G5 will be an entirely new design, featuring a metal body.  This is the last of the traditional soft-backed Moto Gs.  Mine has been very solid (G4 Plus), but I do use a case (Ringke Fusion) which helps the longevity of a plastic phone quite a bit.  It seems like it will become harder and harder to find plastic mid-ranged phones going forward with the departure last gen of the Nexus 5X and the departure this year of the G4.

I see French and Polish Motorola customers are now starting to ask questions about the update and Moto India is starting to get bombarded again about the update for the G4 play. A lot of unhappy customers out there, not good for a companies reputation.

Moto ger as of this afternoon now saying they can't provide any status on the nougat update.

 

Ridiculous


It's pretty funny actually. I noticed they began doing that after a popular Android news blog wrote an article about how bad Moto's updates have become since Lenovo's aquisition that specifically mentioned and linked to Moto Germany's tweets.

 

Since that article, they no longer answer questions about the update in a way a human would. They now resort to their Indian and American counterparts robotic copy-paste answers. They inadvertingly made their company look like junk. Guess Moto does give internal employees some anticipated dates of release, they just never follow through on them.

hahaha It is quite comical, however at least Germany India and US answer, Moto UK don't even reply to any queries, just post gifs saying change is coming.

Motorola Germany now have a countdown clock on their website counting down the next 12 days

Prob all due the pending G5 range that is rumoured to being announced at end of month

Won't release in USA until stable and bug-free

Further information is that the Nougat upgrade has been released as of yesterday to the Z range in Europe.

 

Moto Ger on twitter are teasing customers and I my instinct is that the 12 day timer is possibly counting down to the full release of the nougat update.

 

I have also read elsewhere that the update will also start rolling out across Europe from 17th Feb.

 

Going off the upgrade news pages the marshmallow update was fully released Feb 2016, therefore IMO I would say we should expect the rollout this month.

 

(This is just my opinion on research I have done)

No chance.

 

The 12 day countdown probably relates to Mobile World Congress 27 Feb thru 2 March.

 

They ain't gonna update the software anytime soon.

Nougat is rolling out in Canada now

 

It's the exact same vesion released released in India and the few other countries back in December/January.


So much for RevLauren's saying of rather get a delayed version that is bug free. Oh my precious, how naive you are. With Lenovo you get the worst of all worlds - a delayed, buggy version! And no security patches! Woohoo
