Re: Moto G5 Plus Oreo Update

2017-11-03, 17:05 PM

The correct answer is MAYBE, it depends on Motorola's partners, aka your carrier/Verizon or whoever you have for your phone. So it is a wait and see if you get the update or not.

Your carrier my not want you to get the update so that you will buy another phone from them. Nice one Motorola, if this does go like that I think Motorola will see sales drop. I do know this is my last Motorola phone just because it take them so long to get the update.Everyone that I know that does not have a Motorola got the update this week.

I don't have any carriers like Verizon.
Let's just hope that Motorola comes to its senses before 2 years and gives the update for Android P.

Maybe, and wait and see, is the correct answer(s). Even if Moto does indicate a phone will receive a future major OS version update they could change their minds and not update the phone. They've done it before.

 

Happened to us Droid Ultra, Maxx and Mini owners. Moto decided NOT to update those three phones to Lollipop (Android 5.x). So I got stuck with a phone that came with Android 4.x and wasn't upgraded beyond Android 4.4.4. This caused a number of issues on Verizon since the phone was incapable of using certain newer Verizon features (like WiFi calling) because it needed a newer Android OS to enable those features.

 

Bottom line is unless it is spelled out in the EULA that a phone will get future major OS version updates there is no garuntee the phone will be updated to the next major Android OS version. At least with an unlocked/rootable phone one may have the option to use a third party ROM that may provide the newer OS version updates.

Is there something wrong with your phone as it is? If not, why be in a hurry to be updated to an OS which may still be unstable on our phones?
All good things some to those who wait :-)

Absolutely agree with you. 

 

I prefer a mature and stable OS than a quite new and untested one, just because "is the last!". I'll be happy to receive at least Oreo 8.1, which is expected to be with most of the initial issues fixed. I have Android 7.0 on my G5 Plus and it works just fine so far (just a few months of use). 

 

I work on IT so I know about OS and the new versions released so fast, before is properly tested. A lot of examples in the market...

 

 

Regards.

This website says we will get Oreo this Fall (2017).  It's now November 15th, 2017.  I wonder how much "Fall" there has to be before we get it????  I check everyday for updates and nothing!!
