Check out Xiaomi phones. They offer very good value for the money. Bad news is that usually Xiaomi is not that very quick with new Android versions either.

I have not had any problems with my G4 Plus. 

The Nougat upgrade was not that different then other midrange phones, it's not fair to compair it to phones that cost double the price. The only real complaint I have is with the lack of security updates.

What phone in the same price range is better? I'd buy a Pixel if I had loads of cash to spend on a phone, but I don't. The G4 Plus seems like a good phone for the money, but if they want to make sure my next phone will be a Moto they need to put more into keeping it updated. 


You can find a better phone in the same price range; Huawei (P9 lite, Nova, some Honor's), Asus (Zenfone 3), Xiaomi (different models), Samsung (A5 2016). Except Xiaomi, all of them have a newer security update

Hello, I bought on Amazon a Moto 4G Plus XT1644 unlocked and I sent the equipment to Peru, I would like to know if this model will update to the version of Android N in that country and when it is expected, I understand that in Mexico and Chile the version is already released Android N for that model

As mentioned many many times before, no one here has any dates. The G4 you purchased will be updated when phones of similar region get their update. So if this was a USA model phone, it will get updated with USA model phones.

Problem is the Huwawei Android skin is utter garbage.  One of the most ineffieient and illogically bloated Android versions I've ever seen.

 

If you want bloatware free, pure Android, Moto is one of the only options, if you also want to go on the cheap.  If Moto made OS updates a priority as it has in the past in the pre-Lenovo days, they would be unique.  With slow updates, less crap in the slowly updated OS is their only differentiator and it's a much less compelling story.

Can anyone else confirm they're on May 2016 security patch on their Moto G4 plus? I'm close to just getting rid of the phone and buying one from a competitor. But if it's not just me, i'll hold on a little bit longer in the hope that everyone is on May 2016's patch and a new one in imminent.
