Re: [OFFICIAL] Android 8(Oreo) Update CONFIRMED!

You are right, OS1111. In the UK, on the 'retgb' channel, as usual we're still waiting for upgrades that people in bigger Lenovo markets have got already. On past performance Lenovo will get round to it, eventually, but it could take quite a long time. On my G5+ I'm currently running v7.0 with a June 2018 security update, and the system update setting assures me that "Your device's software is up to date". Even money on whether we get Oreo before 2019.

So @motorolaTom announces on 6th September that Oreo is rolling out to a small number of regions. Over a month later it seems that they have not completed that 1st phase of the rollout yet. Moto haven't yet expanded it, which leaves all the rest of the world still waiting and waiting, with no info coming from Moto as usual. And they won't contribute here, even though it is an official Lenovo forum. What has gone wrong. No Oreo update (I'm in UK) and no explanation or telling us what is happening. Where is the customer support? The Moto staff who care about service must be highly embarrassed by this. Any comment from Moto staff?

Dear Motorolatom,

 

all very nice in faraway places but can you give a date when my Moto g5 in the UK will be updated to Oreo. I have no end of problems with my Ring video doorbell and Ring blames the outdated  Android. 

An early reply would be appreciated.

You should let Ring know that most phones are not running android 8.0 or 8.1 - if Ring only supports 8.x  then less then 20% of android users will have a good experience with Ring.

Quite right, most android phones are not running 8.0 or later - but to be fair, this long thread is about a commitment moto made back in sept. 2017 to ensure that these phones (g5 / g5 plus) were updated to 8.0 or later, so I don’t think it’s unreasonable to expect that this happens. I would suggest it is moto (not ring) that need to consider how many of their users are having a good experience with them, in terms of software updates anyway.

Also is there anyone can tell that in Oreo 8.1 when we activated one button navigation in moto actions, is there a way to turn off vibration but not putting phone in power saver mode nor silence mode.

 

Plus: Also if we turn off moto display, Are notifications turning lock screen on? For example Whatsapp.  Actually this is the way I like. Its only working on some app like snapchat on android 7 on moto g5 right now.

Bought the phone back at the beginning of the year when PC Mobile had the pre-paid version of it on sale (and been using it with Public Mobile ever since).
