I have a Moto G4 xt1625 and I found that the update would simply fail. It would spend 1/2 hour downloading over WI FI then I could start the installation. The phone would reboot, upgrade process appeared to begin and about 20% of the way in according to the little progress line the green Android Robot down on its back looking as if it has red mark for being shot appeared along with an Update Failed Message. Eventually one could push the power button, hold it and phone would reboot, come back up in Marshmallow and display a larger failure message then proceed to operate as before, with perhaps a few Google Play Services has stopped and other android stopped messages. I tried to clear my cache partition and repeat the update, it still fails.
Fvwmeyer, 25 Mar 2017Hi, I bought my G4 at Best buy so the channel is retus. I live in Germany, today I saw that G5... morehi, i bought the G4 (XT1625) not the plus in bestbuy usa, the software Chanel Is retus and i live in México.

moto master, 02 Apr 2017i received it on my Moto 4G Plus. Battery is draining way to quickly. Siginificant difference ... moreMy battery is not lasting at all and the rapid charger is not working since I updated my phone. Now it takes hours to charge my phone! Then dies quickly! Even plugged in and running one app it kills my battery! Let me go back!
Phil Schifley, 31 Mar 2017Got the nougat update last night in Austin, TX. I manually searched for updates and found it. ... morePhil, I hope this does fix the bugs, I bought my Moto g 4 plus in July and in September​ I sent it for repairs because of the ghost touch that would open up application and send texts lol. Of course they made no sense. The phone came back two weeks later and have had the same problem ever since, the problem is the phone overheats and if you put the back light on half way it's fine, however if your outside and it's warm and the sun hits it the ghost comes back. So distracting. With 64 GB I'm not wanting to get rid of my phone just yet, not even a year old. Grr

Battery life was fantastic on 6.0.1, upgraded to 7.0 and immediately had extra battery drain on my G4 Plus. Stay away from Nougat unless there is a reason for you to upgrade, I hope Motorola fixes this quickly. I am so tired of crappy OS versions. Had terrible experience after upgrading Moto X Gen1 phone last year. Smart phones are a PIA. You want to stay current, but the manufacturers are always screwing them up with updates!

Got my 7.0 update on my Moto g4 xt1625. Works very well. Much better than Marshmallow
Same guy who posted the imgur link. No bugs or crashes, it feels more polished than Marshmallow. A few performance issues here and there but that's because of the JIT compiler, it's fairly new so I won't be mad.
Charged, 30 Mar 2017Received update 1 hour ago. Smooth update 15 minutes. G4 NOT plus. No issues so far.Which update 7.0 or 7.1.1
got 7.0 update to my G4 yesterday in SE Minnesota... so far, no problems, and everything works good.
Just upgraded to nougat, now I can't make any call. Metropcs is my provider, what can I do?
Got the nougat update last night in Austin, TX. I manually searched for updates and found it. Not sure how it's going to run yet. My phone has been buggy, randomly shutting down when I open the camera or other apps, and every time I wake it the screen goes through some false touch dance like I'm pressing it. Drives me bonkers. I'm hoping this update fixes that. If not I may need to send it in to have the battery looked at. I bought mine in July of last year.
