Please can we drop this repetitive bitching

2018-08-11, 12:43 PM

I have to say, I mostly agree with akb2201

There are so many posts in this thread repeating the same tedious theme, it's not funny

Obviously it's very disappointing that upgrades don't happen in a timely manner (worse when they're as late as in this case), and it's particularly annoying when we see other providers issuing updates but Moto doesn't

But bashing out posts abusing a corporation on what is essentially a peer to peer forum is utterly pointless and only seems to have served to make you lot more cross!

Your phones work pretty well - mine works better than I'd expect, considering the price

I probably won't buy a Moto phone next time, but then again if the price and the hardware are right, I just might - if I do I probably won't expect timely updates, rather going into it with my eyes wide open and rooting on day 1

Please don't come on here all shouty and sweary and pretend like it's going to make a blind bit of difference. It won't

 

When the updates drop; well, won't that be a nice surprise ;-)

 

Now, go download and play PUBG and vent your Oreo-rage there...

TheSoupThief: You've nailed it.

 

You see in this group it's only regular guys like us and a few experts (regular as well) who are sharing our thoughts and when you whine, it's just us us reading them. Moto would work in their own God **bleep** pace and this whining makes no difference to them. It's just us who get an email in our inbox each time you put out a threat regarding the company.

 

So I don't see the point in that.

Protip - when you post here, try to remember to untick the "email me when someone replies" box! It saves yourself receiving a lot of spam!

I'm a motohead. I love Motoriola phones. I just know that it won't update for a while.

Motorola is slow but they always deliver.

Now since the moderaters seem to think that threads like this are solved by the phrase nobody knows when/if there will be an update and we shouldn't be complaining here about that. I do have a suggestion and a possible solution.

 

Don't voice your frustration here. Instead do so on every motorola product review. We are already trapped and ignored but maybe you'll save some other poor soul from this or actually motivate action on updates.

@SMDoyle That's probably a slightly less futile approach, but frankly I don't think there's a lot in it. Lenovo seems to be winding Moto down - it's pretty much common knowledge that Moto's old reputation for good updates (during the Google owned days) is a thing of the past.

I'd just suggest using the time to play PUBG mobile

It's just sitting back and just watching the drama.This forum is just a mode of entertainment for Lenovo-moto ,whenever their employees are tired or stress they just read the comments we write here and make fun. It is just a waste to write here.

 

I will suggest two best options:

1.Buy a new Android one phone,their price range is less compared to this garbage ( in terms of updates)

2.Go for custom roms, they much more reliable than this funatics, try Android 8.1 by XDA. They have rolled out most stable Oreo update, which rectifies glitches like camera error and volte support.

 

 

If you dont want custom roms, or in case if you chose 1 option, I sugget you to preserve this phone...because ofcourse moto is working hard for Android Oreo release...may your grandchildren will get the Oreo update in Moto g5 plus.


Never advise people to go the custom ROM route.  It's a violation of the house rules to discuss modding, and suppose your post is the one that convinces another user to mod, and the modding goes bad.  Are you responsible for that user's phone?  Just an interesting question...
