You don't want it. Fouled up my G5+. It won't ring anymore. Notification sounds gone. Keyboard tones gone.

Am I the only one who feels Motorola should have added Dolby Atmos to the g5/g5 plus in the Oreo update.

We haven't updated yet because we thought there were issues and problems with the 8.1 Oreo update. I have a G5 Plus, wife has a G5s Plus.
Is all well and safe with the Oreo 8.1 update?
I'm sick and tired of all the annoying "Update Available" reminders and couldn't find a way to stop them.

I'm with you.

 

My whole family, at this point has G5 plus phones.

 

But I am not rushing to "upgrade"......I too have seen reports of fouled up stuff since Oreo rolled out. And that is expected with ANY retrofot of new software to old hardware.

 

I honestly do not understand the thinking ---- unless an update has a specific fix to a specific issue you have a problem with, I do not see the reason to "upgrade". That is how all of us old school PC guys used to think.

 

Now, pushing for retrofitting new OSs to old hardware is the fad....mostly due to OS manufacturers FORCING us to do so.

 

These phones were designed and built around the specific version of Android when it was designed.

Retrofitting new software to old hardware , to me, just introduces problems.

 

For anyone who cares, my reasoning here is that on the last few phones I have owned, these "upgrades" cause nothing but issues.  On my last phone -- a Samsung Note 4, bough new when it was the flagship of Samsung,  crashed hard and bricked after an "upgrade".   Samsung told me because it was out of warranty I was out of luck. It is a well known issue on the Samusung boards , google it.

I bought my G5 Plus originally  because it got good reviews, did what I need it to do and was affordable. It was a replacement to the bricked Note 4.

 

None of that has changed.

 

Why on earth would I rush to "upgrade" and , at the very least, be an unpaid tester for Motorola/Lenovo/Android?

 

The software publisher has people hooked on the concept of "newer is better".  Well, "newer" cost me a $800 phone and I had to buy a new phone with a new Android license......maybe THAT is what is behind the "newer is better" concept. LOL

 

I, too, would like the ability to stop the constant "upgrade now?" reminders....NO, I DO NOT WANT TO CHANGE OSs RIGHT NOW! LOL There needs to be an "opt out" option that delays the reminders for a user-chosen amount of time.

[OFFICIAL] Android 8(Oreo) Update CONFIRMED!

2018-11-27, 15:18 PM

Dude,

My kernel version says:

3.18.71-perf-g2148ea10 (gcc version 4.9.x
20150123 (prerelease) (GCC))

But IAM not a MFN user, and I got the update directly by checking the system update.I did not get any mail regarding this soak test. 

I wish I could post some screenshots,but these moderators tend to remove them.

I feel pity for them.

No one removes screen shots unless you post something prohibited.
