Don't upgrade now since there are too many bugs. If Motorola are as bad as Microsft in fixing known bugs I would allow 6 months before upgrading. I suspect realy pgraders are being used for beta testng. I wish I had defeered the ugrades since you can't revert to the previous version.

Definitely don't update it anytime soon. I got the phone too months ago, don't really know much about software updates so I do them as they pop up. It's aweful. Everything's changed, I'd only just started getting used to it going from a Samsung S3 to the g6 play. And now I hate it. I can't split screen anymore. It's slow. The screen blurs and it lags. The audio is absolutely shocking now when before it was amazingly clearand loud. The auto brightness is different in sensitivity and using the slide bar. I feel like I'm using my old tired Samsung again. I'm really disappointed with it as I was so pleased with the previous version of Android that came on the phone.

Also the battery isnt lasting as long as before and it's getting a lot warmer than before.

Split screen is still there just changed. You can split screen by going to recent menu and holding down the icon above on the app and there you can pick split screen mode

Do not update. THere are several problems with the audio. In particular: lowest volume is higher than normal, at max volume the speaker crackles, there is no more the excellent dolby app, but another one which can not be disabled!

I definetly wouldn't upgrade yet - it's basically ruined my phone, constantly freezing and all apps crash constantly.

I'm looking to replace the phone now rather than hang on for the bug fixes
