But seriously very disappointed that Oreo update still is implemented in 32 bit and not 64 bit which is baffling.

 

I still cannot install GCam, which requires Camera2api enabled that is possible on only 64 bit system. 


It was clear from the start it would be 32 bit. Switching to 64 bit would require a complete wipe of all data and that's not how updates are done. 

 

Same with the api. Motorola hasn't enabled it on budget devices before, why do you think they would now? You could re-enable it with root, and many did on N.

 

As for camera apps, one is provided. That's what they support. No surprise that GCam doesn't work out of the box. But there are 32bit versions and like on N, you can make it work with some effort.

After long wait, here's Oreo for Moto g5s plus.

But it's beta version.

(Empty dish is the Easter egg that was only in Oreo beta version,please confirm)

Lenovo has messed up the Motorola brand and is gonna die soon in this competitive market if Lenovo continues to breach the customer's trust.

What is a prerelease is the compiler not the kernel. This was the compiler that was available when the 3.x kernel was released. Why they didn't upgrade the compiler is rather strange. My guess is because they patched the nougat kernel instead of using a clean Oreo kernel and it supported 32-bit which I would guess the newer compiler doesn't support. That's how they were able to stay 32-bit rather than going to the 64-bit Oreo kernel. My guess is it was less work to patch Nougat than start over with the Oreo 4.x kernel.
