Re: Nougat update news for ALL G4

You'll never get Android 8 from Leohno, only through custom ROMs. Thankfully the dev community for the G4 is fairly strong and Lenovo's lack of upgrades should give a nice excuse to unlock your bootloader and begin flashing away.

In all seriousness, it's going to be a month at least before the update is rolled out to all phones in the US, and I really don't expect any more updates, much less incremental ones such as 7.1

Android O was confirmed for the G4. I read it on a reputable site which said it was in official promotional material. Part of the reason I bought the phone... Hopefully they don't change it because I also bought the phone for quick updates and so far I will never buy another Motorola!

The only reason they are so slow these days is because Motorola sold out to Lenovo. I may never buy another either.

More than annoyed choosing the G4 now, bought it on the promise of a quick update to nougat.  What have we had so far? A soak test in India with seemingly poor results and now supposedly a soak test in America.  How about giving UK/Europe a chance?  The G5 will be out here soon with nougat out of the box, apart from the fancy new casing it looks fairly similar internally, so why nothing for the G4?  Forced obsolescence is coming to mind.

My next phone will be probably a Google Pixel 2 when it comes out this autumn/winter. I'm tired of waiting months for security patches and half years for upgrades... Yes, it will cost more, but it will worth it.

Just received a Nougat update notification for my MOTO G4 (model XT1621, software channel RETLA, located in USA, no carrier).

RETLA? Where did you get that? Wouldn't that be for Latin America market?

"Moto G4 Plus Will Be Upgradeable To Android O
By Tyler Lee on 05/23/2016 03:49 PST"

That's May 2016 directly following Lenovo's release.
Yes, it's on the promotion, but

IT'S LENOVO.

You won't see O on this device. Or, you might see it 6-9 months after O is released.

And you never got a soak invitation? Of course, if you did you can't say so. :)
