7.0, sure. But these will never get 7.1
If you really care about OS updates but cannot/don't want to buy the Pixel phone, wait for devices that come out with 7.1 out of the box. Google implemented the dual partition system for 7.1, and phones without 7.1 pre-installed won't be able to be updated as such.

Maybe Sony should go back in creating their own chips like in the 90's/early 2000.
I saw a news about Motorola devices (Moto Z devices I think) that received at least some Nougat BETA update, which is the same story here. Also, V20 is the first phone to run official Nougat so it still does count
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2016None of Motorolas phones have received Nougat. They published release noted for G4 but the upd... moreI have a Motorola and it surely received Nougat a few weeks ago. But to be fair, it's a Nexus-device, so it could make a "slight" difference here. :D Still, one Motorola-phone has received it.
Tourettes Guy, 01 Nov 2016Other than Google, LG, and Motorola phones, name a brand that runs at least the Nougat update.... moreNone of Motorolas phones have received Nougat. They published release noted for G4 but the update hasn't started rolling out.
And no LG device received Nougat update either. V20 was launched with Nougat so that doesn't count.

I thought my 7.0 on Nexus was becoming old as 7... morelets get your facts clear, Sony has the most stable Softwares in the world (with only 0.8% of app crash rate and Motorola comes second with 0.9% crash rate) and that kind of perfection needs time. Sony does a Complete testing and then approves the software for its final launch!!!!!
faster than before. But a litte upset z3 dont get update. If snapdragon dont give driver for update, pls use other chip in future
i have bought xperia xz and its an excellent phone 100 times better than samsung crap and their touchwiz is shit lags like hell.

No need to name other brands. :) But still, shame on the slow ones not having a stable 7.0 released on their device(s) already.

Makes no damn sense. And yeah, seems like others are as behind as Sony are, what a ridiculous situation... At least custom-roms are still a great choice. :)

Sony is so great with software updates, while Samsung doesn't even come close
What? The phone doesn't have official 7.0 yet? I thought my 7.0 on Nexus was becoming old as 7.1 Developer Preview will be released this month... But Sony's this far behind.
Yet people claim that Samsung has the best software support? Lol not even once did I hear about Samsung planning on releasing Android Nougat update, and I even checked their official website for any news about it
SKR..., 01 Nov 2016Who cares? Anyone even buys sony smartphones today?? I've seen many people with sony phones here in Europe. I mean ; what can we buy? That basic phone ; the iPhone? No thaks! Or the exploding one ; Samsung. I say no to both. I've sent my note 7 back and I got a sony xperia xz . I like this phone a lot !!"
Anonymous, 01 Nov 2016Keep your HUGE ugly bezels and get out of here. The designers at Sony need to be lined up and ... morePersonally I love Sony's design more than any other brand. Why? Cos round corners give me the feeling of cheap phones. Also, monolithic design is the beast cos you can place the phone on the table on all sides and it won't fall.
If you don't like like don't buy it. Nobody gives a fly what you think anyway.
Oh, and if Shamesung is so good, how come all my friends are selling their phones to buy the new XZ? And we live in Europe, not India or China.
Here we want quality, not quantity. Are you familiar with that word? Money are not an impediment for us ;)
