If we had Android 9 Pie right now the world might be a better place. There might be more peace in the world, less crime, less violence, less hunger, less poverty......
Have a blessed day! 😁

I am a 50 year old, full time employed man. So I bought my phone with my own hard earned money, no gift from anyone. That post was meant as a little light hearted humor. I understand security, I work in the IT help desk field. But I also understand that there are way more important things to worry about in this world than when my phone will get Android Pie. My work phone is running Android 7 with a 2017 Security Patch and has never been hacked, corrupted, broken into, etc. Security is important, but how we use the device is equally important to ensuring it remains safe.

It's all good, no offense taken. I want Android Pie also. I want the Bluetooth fixes that come with Pie. Bu I don't want it to kill my battery the way Android 8 did my Z Force or the way Android 7 did my Turbo 2. I want this update to be good, to be right because it's the last one we will get with this phone. And if our battery life is ruined we are stuck with it I also thought Moto would remain one of the best OEM's at providing quick Android updates. But they haven't been the last year or so. It's a bummer, but we can't change that. I just find that not worrying about when my phone will, or might, get the latest Android version is the best course of action. No sense worrying about things we can't control.

I agree with you Scott, in the sense the I want a very stable release. However Motorola has been extremely slow to update the Z2 Force, and as users/customers this forum is one of the few ways, if not the only one, to voice our impatience / dissatisfaction at Motorola.
In my case, the dissatisfaction grows when I see that lower models like the G6 Play is being updated and very recent models like the Z3 also is also being updated, feeling like the Z2 Force has been left by the side of the road...

I understand. But that's assuming that anyone higher up than the Level 1 Moto Agents that post here read these posts. I doubt Moto management reads the Forum posts.
As far as the Z3 all manufacturers update the newer phones first, then the order models. As for the G6 it may or may not be a "lower model" but it probably sold way more units world wide than the Z2 Play and Z2 Force combined. So it makes more sentto update it first. The fact that Moto has had to ask for Z2 Play and Z2 Force testers two years in a row speaks to just how few people have these phones and are registered here. In all my years here I have never seen them have to repeatedly ask for testers.

My LG V30 is still waiting for it. My son's S8+ just got it a few weeks ago. I upgraded to a LG G8 and it came with Pie. As you can see I try many manufacturers. My Z2 is still working good as well.

My Z2 Force has been working perfectly fine since I bought it, However, it doesn't change the fact that Motorola has been SLOW to release android Pie for the Z2 Force. Motorola has an almost sotck Android interface just like the Pixel line from Google, upgrades could be faster. If you have other phones from LG and Samsung that have not been upgraded great, this is the Motorola forum, so if we are dissatisfied with Motorola handling of the issue, I guess this is the place to voice it.
I had a Moto X which I loved and remember how Motorola kept on saying it was going to get an OS upgrade, and it never did.
OS upgrades bring more functionality and improvements that make more enjoyable the use of the phone and can even increase the equipment usefulness.
