Re: Android (7.0) Nougat Update for Moto X Pure/Style

You just answered the reason to upgrade an iPhone. My wife had a 5c until the iPhone 7 came out. I updated her 5c to the new IOS and it literally made it useless. Let the consumer decided if they want an update, and if they do, they deal with a sluggish phone and then you're forced to upgrade.

 

My Moto X Pure is plenty current enough to run Nougat, if Motorola ever decides to release the update.


Agreed, Apple has setup iOS to keep users in their ecosystem as much as possible... Facetime, group messaging, etc. are all "Apple only" and don't work outside of iOS devices, they attempt to lock you into their own ecosystem and make it too much of a hassle to move to something else. Most (but not all) people I know who have/had Apple devices, and move to a modern mid to high end Android device are astounded at how good it is and wonder why they didn't do it before.

 

On a different note... the OnePlus 2, which was released shortly before our device and was literally promised by OnePlus to get 2 years of software updates, official stated that the device will not get Nougat. http://www.androidauthority.com/oneplus-confirms-no-android-nougat-update-oneplus-2-779029

 

Why does any of this matter to us, because it shows that Moto isn't the worst here like everyone makes it out to be, on the contrary, although they are past OUR expected release time of Nougat, and likely theirs as well, we will get Nougat and Lenovo is commited to this device and it's users. Patience everyone... in a few months we will all look back on this and wonder why we made such a big deal out of it, like always.

I have a Moto G 1st Gen with a Nougat custom ROM. I didn´t run any benchmarks but i would say in the same circumstances it's as or even faster as the original 4.3 which the phone had when i bought it.

 

We are talking about a mid range phone released almost 4 years ago.

 

So i don't believe Moto X isn't capable to run Nougat with an acceptable performance. I bet if the ROM is well optimized it will run even better than with Marshmallow.

The Moto X Pure/Style is of course more than enough to run nougat/Android 7.x, because it's very similar to (if not the same as) the Nexus 5X specification-wise (Snapdragon 808). The Moto X Pure/Style even has more ram (3 GB ram in the Moto X Pure/Style versus the 2 GB ram in Nexus 5X). I thought the Nexus 5X already got Android 7.1.2 which is the latest version. Wish Moto/Lenovo could give us more info of the Nougat update, whether it will come or not ...

 

Moto X Pure/Style isn't a cheap smartphone like their Moto E/C series smartphones, so in my opinion the Moto X series should get better aftersale support like (faster) firmware updates and security patches, longer support etc..

Has anyone actually got the nogut update i keep checking but no update. I bought unlocked phone because i thought Motorola would update it first but when they sold to Lenevo i lost hope... Still waiting so much for two years of guaranteed updates.... Still stuck on 6.0 even though there has been multiple updates to it. My next phone will be iphone tired of waiting on Android updates that never showup....

Well, another victum of 2015 phones NOT getting the Nougat update is OnePlus 2. Moto X Pure owners may get the Android 7 update this summer while newer phones are getting the new Android 8 update.

Just a thought... if Android OS updates were available for purchase, would people be willing to purchase the upgrade? Let's say $20 when available from your phones manufacturer. Each month it drops in price until it's eventually free. I know it's more complicated than that, but I would jump on that wagon.

Your comment makes total sense about when its presumed ready it will be released but I still have to wonder why the long delay being that this phone was supposed to be almost standard android. I do know that MOTO has a few extras to work with but still, you have to admit that this has not been a priority of Lenovo and the comment about them not posting update information is just silly. If there is a problem let people know. I would understand more if I was told that the update is still in the works but there was an issue found after the soak test that warrants review rather then just wondering why everyone was told that the update would be in the first quarter and nothing... Kind of makes you lenovo look bad. I have been a log time fan of Motorola and have been through all the MOTO X phones since the first design and I cannot remember this kind of delay. The reason I like MOTO was that they were near stock Android and I could expect quick upgrades. I understand that Lenovo does not like to give updates but in todays world information is king and bad news (or no news in this case) spreads multiple times faster then good news. They should keep this in mind at there next board meeting.....

I thought that was already included in the price tag.

Are man-hours not used when developing and optimizing iOS software? Yet people complain for its price tag...

Had to laugh at this. According to this website our phones already have 7.1.1.
