I just don't understand why Motorola can't give us a status update and say "it's delayed because of x" rather than leave us in the dark. It would take 5 minutes for them to do so.

Confirmed. India only at this time. Rolling out in waves. Will take a few days. 

 

No dates on anything else. 


Still no update in the U.S. and still no official word on any sort of release?  What happened to Motorola?  Used to be fairly quick with updates.  This device is so far on the back shelf by Motorola it's not even funny and this is what I hate about android.  I'm still on the July security update.  I get not updating monthly, but at the very least a 3-4 month release on security updates should be happening here. We are well past a half a year and nothing has been pushed to this device.  I've said this before and I'm going to say it again.  Motorola is definitely on my DO NOT BUY list.

Same in the UK. No news, no updates since July 2016. Depressing stuff.

I think it's fairly evident that Lenovo does not care what customers think, after they've made the sale.  Otherwise, there would have been some OFFICIAL response to all the comments on this board.  You could say that this is a "User-only" board, but it IS sponsered by Motorola.  Either they don't read it (which means they don't care), or they don't want to answer (which means they don't care), or the CAN'T answer (which means they are inept).  But considering they haven't changed their message on the motorola web site about the update...

 

They just don't care.

 

I think they are just milking the Moto name, until they can sink the product.  In any case, it would be REALLY stupid to ever buy another product from Lenovo; and I've previously bought 6 phones from them.   Good job, Lenovo!!

I purchased a Moto g4 plus a few days ago. A big reason for that was that online you can reaad that it runs almost stock android and nougat was released for it sometime last year. 

 

Well after a few days of manually searching for updates I started looking online and find other people who are confused by not getting the update. I've emailed my countries branch to ask what is going on. If I get a negative reply or no reply I will probably return the phone. It's quite sad that a rollout of an update takes several months worldwide. 

 

Tl:dr

I bought a g4 plus in Norway. It is stuck on Android 6.

Moto G4 uses an almost stock ("vanilla") Android version. There is barely any modification to it. It's one thing that, for example, Samsung is late with the update, as their Android version is heavily modified, they have tons of things to update. But Moto G4 Nougat upgrade should be straightforward. We should have received it last November-ish...

Ive already decided which alternative manufacturer I'm moving to. Sorry Moto/Leno but it's unacceptable that you cannot roll out the update quicker for UK users and even give an updated status as to what's happening. I sincerely hope that other manufacturers give Leno or some serious competition and force Lenovo to be better.

This has me scratching my head. It's pretty close to stock android and it takes this long to be pushed anywhere other than India.
