Re: January Security Patches

Unless you see it announced on the official Motorola Blog (https://blog.motorola.com/), I wouldn't rely on it being anything more than gossip/rumor.

There was a buzzing doing around moto g5 s plus going to circulate January security patches this month and Oreo upgrade in the middle of Feb or starting of Mar. Is that true??


Motorola doesn't comment on release dates, so i doubt the rumors are any more then guesses by others. It may or may not be true, but no one here has the answer.

Re: Motorola and updates

2018-01-08, 3:37 AM

I think you misunderstood me, I just wanted to know why the Moto G5 Plus model is still on Android 7.0 yet the lower g series, Moto G4 play, is now on 7.1.1, so if the G4 is getting updated to 7.1.1 then why isn't the Moto g5plus getting updated to Android OREO 8.0

Now, posting about updates is just a way of taking out the frustration because we know the updates are not coming in near future. It's a great feeling to know that it was not only me who took the wrong decision, I got some company with me too.

Well, you're still in the wrong forum because this is the G5S/G5S Plus forum, which has nothing to do with the G4 or G5.

"This forum is going to be a ghost town when Moto finally releases Oreo." I would dearly love to know why this is seen as being so important? In what way(s) will Oreo massively improve the 'phone?

An answer, thank you, much appreciated.

 

In what way "better battery performance"?

 

In what way will the performance of the 'phone be improved? Quicker conversations; comprehensivle, succinct, worthwhile text messages that are spelt properly and adhere to a few of the rules of grammar -or- just faster game playing?

 

Easier (i.e. more intuitive) tasks would certainly be a nice feature, I would go for that alone.

 

It would also be nice if one could (easily) remove some of the useless clutter on-screen although I suspect that as with Microsoft and Windows 10 it would soon find its way back.
