I'm a Tile user and I'm having issues with Tile app since 6.0 update.  Tile's notes on Google Play says:

 

IMPORTANT: There is a known bluetooth issue in Android 6.0.0 (Marshmallow) that is affecting Tile’s connectivity with Android devices, making Tiles inoperable. Please be aware that this app will not work until the release of 6.0.1, which we have confirmed will fix this problem.

And what about the 6.0.1 BT issues that would affect users that have no problems today - Jason has posted those a few times. 


At this point I would rather wait for N - it runs really nice on my Nexus devices.

It's amazing how paranoid some folks are.

 

Notice how the above linked Droid Life article dated July 20, 2016, reads, in part,

 

"....Forget how bad that sounds for a second and consider the fact that even with today’s update, the phone is still not on Android 6.0.1. Android 6.0.1 with all of its fun emoji, was released by Google in December of last year. ..."

 

The link within that Droid Life article takes you to another Droid Life article dated December 7, 2015.  It reads, in part,

 

"Outside of the new and updated emoji, the update doesn’t bring much. Ars Technica got a hold of it and said that one of the noteworthy changes is a navigation button layout tweak on tablets (Edit: Or that could only be for the Pixel C, not any others), where the recent apps button moves to the far bottom right corner, while the back and home buttons slide over to the left..."

 

Note that the Moto X Pure Edition is not a tablet.  It's a phone.

 

Is this minor stuff worth all of the nonsensical paranoia in this forum about Android 6.0.1 for the past few months and sixteen pages?  I think not.


Personally, I'd like to have the new emoji so that when I text with people who have them I don't end up with the generic box icons. There are also bug fixes and optimizations, and there is nothing wrong with that.

 

But the main point you seem to be missing is what this shows about Motorola/Lenovo's marketing statements about software updates for this phone. Turns out it was just hype and nothing else.

I've got the latest N release on my Nexus 6 and it is really, very smooth and responsive. Love it.

 

I don't have a SIM card in it, so I'm not using for phone calls -- but I may do that soon, just to see how it does compared to some of the problems I'm having with calls on my MXP.

If 6.0.1 does indeed have issues, why was it rolled out to Moto X Play and Moto G 3rd Gen?

Likely because that was the MM build available in AOSP when they built it.  We got early access to MM here in the US.

 

But, here's the Nexus forum thread on Bluetooth volume control in 6.0.1:

https://productforums.google.com/forum/m/#!searchin/nexus/bluetooth$20volume/nexus/3U93a-dMceQ

 

It's not pretty.  Looks like a fix is coming in N/7.0.

Perhaps it's a generational thing, but cutesy emojis hold absolutely no interest for me and most people that I correspond with.

 

I see that you've made 17 posts in these forums since joining in December 2013.  Software updates have always been a point of contention, and often heated discussion, here ever since I joined 3½ years earlier, starting with Android Eclair in my Droid X.  Seems some people have no patience (present company excepted of course).  Those who have moved on to other devices or manufacturers may, or may not, be happier.

I don't care about the emojis but when I have numerous moto x's and everyone I upgraded to 6.0 has Bluetooth issues and disappearing contacts both which worked fine before and are fixed after 6.0. The play has 6.01

You know, of course, that the Moto X Play has never been sold in the United States, however similar it may have been to phones sold here.
