XT1900-2 (and other non-US variant) updates

2018-09-07, 8:26 AM

So it seems as though Motorola is prioritising the XT1900-1 retail model over international variants in regards to software updates.

 

I have the XT1900-2 (retapac channel) which is still on 8.0 and hasn't received a security patch since June. Meanwhile the XT1900-1 on retus seems to be in-line with the Project Fi A1 model, with the August security patch on 8.1.

 

Why is it that the XT1900-2 and other international models can't also follow the A1 and retus models with more regular software updates? I understand that carrier frequencies are different all over the world, but do these models have different baseband firmware/hardware to the XT1900-1 models?

its very clear that motorola doesn't have any resource to focus on market other that few specific country.

it takes 2 years generally to provide updates.

 

please check following link moto g4 plus which was launched 2 years back, not providing update, looking for testers for soak test now..

https://www.xda-developers.com/motorola-testers-moto-g4-plus-android-oreo/

 

what can you expect for moto X4 its just recent launch. Don't hope any speedy update from moto

xt1900-1 is updated regularly with what they do have resources. Since all models are the same (except a1 and amazon), they could all be updated. These things make me not repeat again with this brand on my next mobile.

Comparing the G4 Plus or any other Moto device with the X4 doesn't make sense in this instance because the X4 has an Android One variant. If they are going to update one variant (i.e. retus) to keep it in-line with the A1 firmware then why can't they do the rest?

I don't now. A1 variant has android 8.1 for more than 2 months. It's unfair and exasperating.

I bought this device primarily due to its android one. Later i came to know my model is not android one, there are only few model android one.

 

Moto is doing things very smartly.

 

While buying device now a days we need to do research.

this is what I know even though I cannot explain to you why the update process is the way it is for the other variaants but in America the X4 is more popular as is the only place to use the Android one with project fi. This is all US based facts. The rest of the world has many more choices and phone selection when it comes to unlocked models. You guys get phones we will never get over here in the states.

It would be great if someone from Lenovo could comment on this and provide some clarity... although I suspect that they don't care about their consumers.
